Newspaper Subscription renewal scam


A Chester County Independent subscriber recently reported having received a phone call regarding subscription renewal. The subscriber said the call seemed professional, complete with an automated prompt to renew one’s subscription to the local newspaper, which was apparently in danger of expiring.
The Independent does not call our customers concerning expiring subscriptions. Our subscribers will receive renewal notices by mail. If you receive one of these calls, hang up, and do not provide the caller with any information. If you have provided personal information to one of these or any scam call, contact your local law enforcement to file a report.
