Our Member's Story

We helped a Chamber member from being scammed $25,000 on an advertising package. This member was solicited and was given a proposal on a national advertising buy that would have cost the business owner $25,000. When AAPI conducted their research and investigation, it came to a conclusion that the company and the proposal was a scam.
