Beware Of Phone Solicitations

Company Selling Advertising for Library Not Authorized


January 30, 2019 | View PDF

The Sidney-Richland County Library is asking local businesses and organizations to be aware that a Texas-based company, Universal Ad, is soliciting for advertising in support of the library. “Despite the fact that we have asked Universal Ad to stop soliciting on our behalf, they have continued to do so. We receive unsolicited boxes filled with magnets advertising local businesses,” explains Kelly Reisig, Director. According to the Better Business Bureau, the company has received 101 complaints in the last 3 years, and an additional 52 in just the last 12 months. As a result, their Better Business Bureau page does have an alert that the company has a pattern of disputes alleging customer service issues.

“We certainly appreciate local support. Without it we would not have a library. This business, however, provides a cautionary tale that it is better to contact the organization directly to provide support,” stated Reisig.

For questions or to see how you can support your local library, call 433-1917.
