BOISE -- If your business has been contacted by a company selling advertising on Boise State football schedules, be sure to check it out before signing. The call might be a scam.

The Better Business Bureau says a company named Spirit Publications has contacted Treasure Valley businesses offering the spots on the fall football schedule for $270 but is not licensed to produce Boise State merchandise.

The owner of a small engine company in Garden City called the BBB saying she tried to call the company after getting billed on her credit card, but she got a phone-sex line instead.

If you're solicited to buy ad space, the BBB advises you can research the soliciting company at Deal with companies that have good track records. Get any advertising contract in writing, and make sure you understand it before you sign.
