Scam highlightedby Council

Ballymena Borough Council has been made aware of a situation in which an individual claiming to represent the council has tried to sell advertising space for a publication targeted at safety/care in the community.

The business owner was then contacted by an ‘agent’ in London who insisted on immediate payment upfront.

A spokesperson for the Council expressly states that this is in no way related to the council or its departments.

The council advises business owners to check the validity of all publications. For any queries regarding council publications, please contact the Communications Co-ordinator on 028 2566 0380.
