BGMU Says Beware of Scam

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- BGMU has received phone calls from customers regarding a phone scam.

If you are contacted by phone and question the validity of the person with whom you are speaking, please call BGMU's office at 270-782-1200 after the conversation. Also remember that BGMU does not accept wire transfers.
