An important message to all advertisers and clients of the Tameside Reporter, Glossop Chronicle and Oldham Reporter.

It has been brought to our attention that a firm fraudulently claiming to represent our newspapers is contacting advertisers and clients offering significantly discounted advertising.

Businesses are then being asked to disclose their credit card or bank details.

The fraudulent firm concerned is called AAH Global Ltd and is known to have carried out similar ‘scams’ with regard to other newspapers.

We would like to point out that we do not use outside agents to sell space in our newspapers or on our digital platforms.

Our sales team only work from our offices in Ashton-under-Lyne and will only deal with all regular and prospective advertisers direct.

If you have any concerns please contact our sales team immediately on 0161 379 0240.

We will report and record any instances where businesses have been contacted by AAH Global Ltd and pass this information on to Greater Manchester Police.
