Every single day business owners receive extortion attempt calls from unknown individuals, according to Mexicali Chamber of Commerce President Lidia Granados.
Even the Chamber gets three similar calls daily.
Due to the issue, State Guard of Public Safety and Information staff has trained business owners to identify such scam calls and deal with suspects.
However, three business owners had become victims of callers, Granados recently told La Crónica newspaper. The Chamber president said most business owners had learned to deal with these calls, especially by avoiding providing personal information.
