Spencer Fraud Alert

Spencer, IA (KICD)–Another fraud report has popped up in the area.

On Wednesday a representative from “American Business Link Online” called a Spencer business claiming they had subscribed to an internet service with a two month free trial period. Since the business did not cancel they were then billed for 12-months of “local search-engine optimization services” at $599.00. The representative agreed to a reduced payment of $300. The business learned of the scam and was able to stop payment on the check.

Anyone with similar exchanges with “American Business Link Online” should contact the Spencer Police Department at 712-262-2151.
