Downtown DuBois Inc warns Facebook page was duplicated by scam artist


DuBois, PA – If you get a message from someone claiming to be from Downtown DuBois Incorporated, it’s likely not real.

The Downtown DuBois organization (the real one) is warning that a scam artist has been duplicating their Facebook page in a very convincing way, then messaging people around the area and asking them for the credit card details and other personal information.

The real Downtown DuBois Inc group will never ask you for money in order to claim a prize, and they will never ask you for your financial details through a Facebook message.

One fake page copying the Downtown group was reported last week, and now another one has seemingly popped up.

The real page is facebook.com/DowntownDuBois.

Anything other than that is fake, including any pages that send you a friend request.
