Benton business claims bogus online award

Benton business claims bogus online award

BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) - A Benton business claims a bogus awards program tried scamming them out of more than 200 dollars. Now that business hopes to spread the word about the award.

Katherine Woodworth and her husband started Fair Way Counseling in Benton about a year and a half ago. In January she received an email from an online company calling themselves "Benton Business Recognition" claiming her business won the 20-13 Best of Benton Awards for Family Counselor. But there was a catch. The recognition came at a price -

"219 dollars…I thought about it and if you're having to pay to get the award then it might not be real," said Woodworth.

The company kept sending emails and finally persuaded Woodworth to purchase the award thinking it could help her business. She received a plaque and trophy in the mail. Then she and her husband did some checking.

"The whole time was email, and I couldn't get anybody on the phone," said Woodworth.
