The Franklin County Sheriff is warning businesses about a phone scam involving the supposed sale of radio advertisements.

The Sheriff's Office posted the alert on its Facebook page about a bogus company called 'Universal Advertising.'

The alert said the scam artist claims to work for a local radio station called 'CapCity Communications.'

The alert also said the caller claims to work for the state and the local chamber of commerce, which is also false.

If you or someone at your business receives one of these calls, don't fall for it.

If you or your business is a victim of the scam, call the Franklin County Sheriff's Office at 502-875-8740.
