Don’t Fall for the Fake Pure Catskills Salesman

  |  August 26, 2013

For those of you lucky enough to have encountered Pure Catskills, you know that it has a great mission: to connect upstate farmers to chefs (both upstate and down) and spread sustainability across the region. If you’re a supporter, then you might want to take note of this message that came across the wire today:

“Heads up to all current and former Pure Catskills members: We’re investigating a lead that someone is posing as a Pure Catskills Guide advertising salesman. He is calling your business/home and asking for your credit card or bank account number in exchange for reduced-rate advertising in the PC Guide. THIS IS A SCAM!

Pure Catskills is not currently selling advertising or renewing memberships at this time so please DO NOT SHARE your personal information over the phone.

If you have been called by this person or have additional information, please contact Tara Collins, Communications Director at the Watershed Agricultural Council, (607) 865-7790, ext. 226 or email Thanks to one of our members for this tip-off!”
