JUNCTION CITY, Kan. -- An advertising scam happening in the local community has been brought to the attention of the Junction City Chamber of Commerce. Companies by the name of Hometown Productions, Premier Maps and Universal Adcom have been contacting businesses to sell advertising for magnets, maps or sports guides claiming they are working through the local chamber of commerce.
Their pitch is that if you advertise on the maps, your business will be exclusive and the maps go to any new homeowners in the area, through realtors, chambers, City and County offices, etc. The only people who see the maps are the few who advertise on there, and the few who agree to distribute the maps.
The only maps and area guides the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce endorse and distribute are the Geary County/Junction City, Kansas area guide and Junction City, KS City street map published by the Convention and Visitor's Bureau. Attached are images of the map and area guide for your review.
In terms of Fort Riley, the only post map and post guides the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce endorse and distribute are published by America's Quality Publisher (AQP Publishing). Images of the map and post guide are attached as well.
In the future please remember this if you do receive phone calls similar of that nature. This bit of knowledge will save you hundreds of dollars wasted in useless advertising, the chamber activities director said.
