GOUVERNEUR -- The St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce is taking back its report of a possible scam being run on businesses in Gouverneur.

The chamber says that Steve Lyon, who has been in the area soliciting memberships for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is designated by the organization to do so.

Earlier this week there was concern that someone was working a scam, however, "all his creditials check out," according to County Chamber Associate Director Ellen Nesbitt.

"If anyone signed up with Mr. Lyon, rest assured, you will be a member of the U.S. Chamber as he indicated," Nesbitt said.
