Phone Scams Hit One Local Organization

Thieves are targeting the people of Lincoln. This time by phone. These scam artists are using the holiday spirit to line their own pockets.  Phone calls are being made across Nebraska, asking people to donate money to individuals falsely representing themselves as the Nebraska Jaycees. Now the community service group wants to make sure Lincolnites are not taken advantage of.

If you receive a phone call from the Junior Chamber of Commerce soliciting donations, you may want to think twice. The Nebraska Jaycees, which is a community service organization commonly referred to as the Junior Chamber of Commerce, say they are not behind it.

If you do receive a suspicious phone call, the Nebraska Jaycees say to record as much information as possible and call your local chapter at 750-4636.
