Beware of Possible Invoice Scam

The Chamber has been notified by one of our members that they received emails from two different companies stating they owned money for adversting in an Eau Claire directory/publication. The amounts of the invoices were very similiar to the invoiced amount for the Chamber's community profile.

The names of the companies are, County Connection Marketing and Blueprint Publishing. Please be advised that we have never worked with these companies and cannot find information on them.

If you have anything similar, please contact the Chamber office.
