Buy a classified ad? We don’t ask for your card over the phone

Someone posing as an Idaho Statesman employee has been calling people who place classified ads, trying to obtain your credit card information.

The imposter claims the credit card you used did not go through and asks for the information again.

The Idaho Statesman uses live credit card verification. As such, we would never call asking you to provide this information at a later time.

If you have already received one of these calls and given out your information, please contact your credit card company immediately.

If you receive a call like this, please do not give out your credit card information. If you have any questions you may call us at 208-377-6333.

Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience.
