First Baptist Church of Leesburg warns of scam

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

First Baptist Church of Leesburg wants other churches and businesses to be aware of a scam going around. The Church got a fax, supposedly from the Yellow Pages, demanding a $500 payment for overdue advertisement fees.

Leesburg Police are investigating, but the return address was listed in Bulgaria.

"Our hope is that by us making other churches and businesses aware of this that they will not fall prey to this scam," said Church Administrator Keith Anthony,

The Yellow Pages confirmed to Anthony that the scam is going around and that is not how they do business.
