Business Scam in VT
The Vermont Attorney General’s Office and the Bristol Police Department are warning Vermont businesses about an out of state company operating a fraud. The scam solicits local businesses to donate money to support area schools. A salesperson asks businesses to pay for an advertisement on an educational folder. Typically, the ad is on a subject like drug prevention and says it will be provided to students free of charge. The scheme collects money far above the cost of the folders that may be delivered to local schools. Businesses are advised not to contribute to this type of promotional scheme. Names currently used for the business are American Youth Group, Inc. and National Campus Professionals. In the past, the company also used the names Production Network Media, Production Media Company, and Student Relations Inc.
