School warns against possible scam

by Staff Reports

Watauga County Schools are warning against a possible scam targeting local businesses.

A company called End Zone Athletics has been soliciting local businesses saying they are securing sponsors for Hardin Park School, the school system said Wednesday. There is no relationship between the company and the school, and the solicitations appear to be a scam.

WCS encourages any business with questions about the legitimacy of a solicitation to a local school to call the school office or ask the solicitor for a school contact who can confirm whether the effort is legitimate.

Residents being solicited for the school system as a whole by any entity other than the Watauga Education Foundation are welcome may call Public Information Director Marshall Ashcraft at (828) 264-7190 to determine if it is a legitimate activity.

An alert about this particular scam has also been provided to the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce and the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce.
