Late Monday afternoon, The Cynthiana Democrat was made aware of an attempted phone scam targeting the newspaper’s classified advertising customers. As of noon Tuesday, two classified customers reported being contacted by telephone by individuals falsely identifying themselves as employees of the advertising department. Customers were informed by the callers that a payment problem had occurred with their advertisement appearing in the newspaper. The callers then asked for the customers’ credit card number or checking account transaction routing number.
