The Andrews Chamber of Commerce is sending out a warning to businesses.

NewsWest 9 has learned a phony company is swindling Andrews merchants by asking them to advertise on a magnet featuring emergency phone numbers.

They're telling people they've worked with the Chamber on the project.

In reality, they're stealing cash from local businesses.

On Tuesday, NewsWest 9 spoke with the chamber and they tell us this happens just about every year.

They say, it's a huge problem for businesses that spend all their community cash on these products then don't have any left for legitimate causes.
