Scammers target News & Observer classified ad customers

September 25, 2013 

Attention, News & Observer classified customers:

Scammers have called advertisers whose phone numbers are in their ads, claiming to be classified customer service representatives and asking for credit card information. Customers should not provide credit card information to someone who calls them about an ad. If you have any concerns about the billing for your classified ad, please call us directly at 1-877-223-7355 and ask to confirm that your account billing information is correct.

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
