Chamber of Commerce scam targets small businesses
Watch out for scammers posing as representatives from the American Chamber of Commerce. They are targeting small business owners and their employees. The “chamber representative” will ask to verify general business information as well as employee information.
The catch: There is no American Chamber of Commerce. Further, it should not be confused with the legitimate organization – the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Don’t confirm any information with these scammers. Any information that you supply will be sold on the black market and used for corporate identity theft or to target your business for a myriad of other scams.
Bottom line: If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the American Chamber of Commerce, simply hang up.
