The Granville County Chamber of Commerce has been made aware that scam emails that appear to be from Chamber representatives are being sent to community members. These emails request that the recipient purchase gift cards for a specified agency, take pictures of the gift card’s PIN and send the pictures back to the sender, which appears to be the Chamber.
This is a very typical cyber phishing attempt and these emails are not being sent from the Chamber or any Chamber representative.
The Chamber asks that this be a reminder to us all to be wary of anyone (including friends) who seem to be asking for gift cards, account codes or prepaid cards for any purpose.
The Granville County Chamber of Commerce apologizes for this scam email and any inconvenience it may have caused.
