Scammers target Daily News classified ad customers

Attention, Anchorage Daily News 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 the Daily News directly at 257-4289 and ask the classified manager to confirm that your account billing information is correct.
