The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Scammer attempting theft of Sentinel identity


Someone is calling residents in Goldendale representing themselves as from The Sentinel and then attempting a scam for information.

The newspaper received phone calls Monday letting us know of the scam.

The caller ID from the scammer shows “The Goldendale Sentinel” and a phone number of (509) 773-3766. The Sentinel’s phone number is 773-3777.

According the information we’ve received, the scammer did not say he was from the newspaper, despite the caller ID showing The Sentinel’s name. The caller pitched a phony sales line about time shares, in one instance, and support for charities in another.

Be aware that The Sentinel does not make soliciting phone calls of any kind to individuals and the only sales activity on the part of the newspaper is for advertising.
