We just received a call from someone claiming to be working with the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce. We are not currently working with any companies to verify your business information. We do that ourselves. If we were to contract with a company, we would notify the area businesses and our members. We would also use a member first and if we don’t have a member that could fill the request for work, we would attempt to stay in the region and state in an effort to keep revenue in our area. The only people that will call to verify your business information is Mary Hamilton, Lisa Whittier and Kristi Olkowski.
While we don’t know the nature of their inquiry, we can only guess that it was a scam of some sort as they hung up when questioned about working with the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce.
Please do your due diligence when accepting cold calls from businesses that are not familiar. We strongly suggest that you get their name and number before committing to anything over the phone. We would, in fact, use a chamber member first, a local business or a regional business within the state.
Shopping local is key to our business development, economy and our community.
