Scam targets local school district

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - A new scam targeting an area school district does not make the grade with administrators.

Someone is calling businesses and individuals in Lawrence County, claiming to sell ads for the Hoxie School District.

According to a social media post, the calls—which have an 855 area code—are a scam.

The Hoxie High School Parent Information group says all of their clubs and organizations sell ads in person, not by phone.

Anyone with questions or concerns should call the school at 870-886-2401.
