Fraud Alert - Ontario Association Chamber of Commerce
All media outlets:
We continue to get calls from many local businesses (see sample below) who say that they are receiving frequent enquiries from someone who purports to be representing a "Chamber of Commerce", in particular the "Ontario Association Chamber of Commerce".
Theses individuals also claim to be conducting a "survey" asking about moving; I.e. office relocation, decisions.
Please inform your listeners / readers that these calls are not originating from any Chamber of Commerce.
In particular there is no organization whatsoever called as the "Ontario Association Chamber of Commerce".
Neither the Ontario nor the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, nor any chamber of whom we are aware, conducts "surveys" in this manner, or on this topic.
Businesses are urged to use extreme caution in responding to these kind of questions over the telephone from individuals whom they do not personally know.
If you require more information on this matter, please do contact the undersigned.
