Oneida Police Department
By Chief David R. Meeker Sr.
(Oneida, NY – Oct. 15, 2012) The Oneida Area Chamber of Commerce reported that calls are being received by residents or business owners from a company that specializes in sports merchandise advertising. The caller states that they were either referred by the Chamber or parent of an Oneida High School student. The caller then asks the person or business if they want to purchase, sponsor an ad on a item that will be sent to the high school, items such as sports water bottles.
The Chamber and Oneida High School both report they’re not working with, referred for or affiliated with any company doing this.
Anyone that has paid for such an ad should contact the police department, in the jurisdiction, where they received the call.
