BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Officials in Southport are reminding business owners about a scam that has been around for some time, but continues to work.
According to the Chamber of Commerce, the Quizno's in Southport was recently contacted by fax with a large order, but luckily were not fooled.
The scam pretends to make a big order and that it will be picked up. Generally, the fax has poor sentence structure, misspelled words, no phone number or contact address.
The Chamber of Commerce encourages business owners to make employees aware of these faxes so the company is not taken advantage of.
