There is a company from Illinois calling local businesses about purchasing space on the city map on behalf of the Great Bend Tribune. However, “this company has no affiliation with the Great Bend Tribune and is misrepresenting themselves and our products,” said Tribune Advertising Manager Diane Lacy-Trostle.
The newspaper does publish a map of the city, but its 2016 map was published in May.
The number provided by this company, 309-685-8776, shows up online as a number tied to scams and fraud, she said.
Those with questions or concerns can call their Tribune advertising consultant or the office at 620-792-1211. Should you become a victim of fraud, contact the Police Department at 620-793-4120.
