Library warns of scam


December 14, 2017

The Moose Lake Public Library sent out the following scam alert last week:

Scam alert: There is a company operating under the name "Totes 2 Go" presenting an offer of free tote bags to libraries that is not what it seems. This company is using the Moose Lake Public Library’s name and reputation to sell advertising on different items and then only disclose to us that we will be getting free products for our customers.

What they are doing is calling businesses and telling them that their advertising dollars benefit the library and that the products will be distributed through the library. This is not true and Moose Lake Public Library does not support this in any way. We will not be distributing these bags. Please spread the word to any local businesses or other institutions which might be contacted. The Moose Lake community is so supportive of the library and we do not want anyone being scammed on our behalf.

Contact the library at (218) 485-4424 or the Moose Lake Police Department at (218) 485-8404 if you have given money to this company or have any questions.
