Carson City warns of fundraising scam claiming school ties
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Carson City officials are warning about a fundraising scam targeting local businesses.
The Nevada Appeal reports a Texas company is contacting the businesses asking for sponsorships for materials to benefit Carson High School.
The Carson City School District says the company has no real affiliation with the school or the district.
One business received an electronic solicitation claiming the company was working with Carson High School’s varsity cheer coach to sell souvenir cups, mini-basketballs and banners for the upcoming basketball season.
The company has called itself “Game Day Media” and “Sports Media Marketing.”
