An alert this afternoon from the OLCC –
We have been informed that someone with a very sophisticated calling system has phoned some businesses with liquor licenses asking them to pay for in-store signage with checking account/routing numbers.
This scam uses computer prompts when you answer the phone asking if you need to update your OLCC posters. Following, a real person comes on the line to ask you for your checking account and bank routing numbers to complete the process. Please do not give your personal information to these people.
OLCC does not charge businesses for signs and publications. If ANYONE claiming they are from the OLCC asks you for your checking account/routing numbers…this is a SCAM.
OLCC signs and posters are available on our website and can be printed for at no charge: http://oregon.gov/OLCC/publications.shtml.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the OLCC’s Government Affairs and Communications Division at 503-872-5002.
