Per the below press release, the Vermont Attorney General’s Office is warning the public about a scam targeting area businesses; the scammers are selling advertisements and claiming that the advertising costs will support the local school’s drug prevention program or other support program. This is not supported by schools!
Already, businesses in the Morrisville area, Middlebury, and Montpelier have recently been targeted. Please be aware of this advertising scam.
The Vermont Attorney General’s Office asks that anyone targeted by this scam please file a complaint with the Consumer Assistance Program; a written complaint can be sent to the following address:
Consumer Assistance Program
146 University Place
103 Morrill Hall
University of Vermont
Burlington, VT 05405
(There is also an online complaint form that is currently disabled; the Vermont Attorney General’s Office has been notified about it and is working to correct it. The form, when corrected, will be found here.)
