Beware of Imposters

Beware of Imposters

The Wave office has received a number of phone calls regarding so-called Wave employees showing up at certain events to take photos. Our investigation lead us to the conclusion that we had no prior knowledge of the event, via phone call, mail or E-mail, and therefore it would've been impossible for us to be at any of the noted functions. Whoever these people are, they are stating unequivocally that they are reporters or editors from The Wave newspaper. We are concerned about this situation because the tactics that are being used to obtain a story or information are questionable. This is not the first time this has happened. A few years ago, a man was showing up at the local libraries and taking photos of children. He told the library staff that he was from The Wave, but in reality the man was a convicted pedophile. Take note that ALL journalists and other employees of The Wave carry press credentials of some type, and they are displayed immediately upon request. Anyone with doubts or suspicions about a person claiming to be from this newspaper should ask for proper identification or contact this office for verification.
