Telegram warns readers about possible obituary scam
Superior Wisconsin 1410 Tower Ave. 54880

A caller to the Superior Telegram reported posting an obituary to the newspaper’s website and making payment directly using a credit card. The Telegram does not accept obituaries that way, and believes the caller was scammed. Obituaries must be emailed to obits@superiortelegram.com for processing or call us directly at 715-395-5000. The Telegram has staff to post emailed obituaries seven days a week and does not use second party vendors. 

If you have any questions or believe that you may have fallen victim to this scam then please contact your credit card company and the authorities for assistance.
