LUS Fiber Warns Users of Sale Scam

Jun 13, 2018 01:58PM ● By Camille Mosley
LUS Fiber is warning Lafayette citizens about scam sales claims being made to local residents from people representing other telecommunications companies.
 
Over the past several weeks, LUS Fiber has received numerous reports that sales agents representing another telecom provider are indicating that Lafayette’s community-owned LUS Fiber business is in the process of being acquired. 
 
According to alarmed LUS Fiber customers, the statements are being made by door-to-door sales representatives who are stating that LUS Fiber will be sold within the next 3 months forcing current customers to switch to other service providers. Initially, LUS Fiber staff thought these were isolated instances, but it is now clear that the number of these false reports is increasing. 
 
“Lafayette residents are being targeted by one of our competitors, and unfortunately, these aggressive sales tactics are creating alarm and confusion for LUS Fiber customers. These rumors are completely false. On the contrary, LUS Fiber is a profitable enterprise, generating enough net revenues to expand its system into new territories. It is absolutely not for sale” stated Terry Huval, Director of LUS Fiber.
 
Sales scams like this occur across the country. If you are concerned that you are being targeted by such scams, please contact the Federal Trade Commission – which works to protect consumers and prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices – to report your experience and file an official complaint.
 
As reassurance to the public, LUS Fiber has maintained an A+ bond rating from Standard & Poors, and is a financial and community success. LUS Fiber has consistently expanded its services throughout the city of Lafayette, and in the past 6 months, announced its, expansion into Broussard and Youngsville. 
 
All LUS Fiber expansions are funded through its own revenue. 
 
LUS Fiber is committed to remaining 100% community-owned.
