Scammer says they’re with a school

Paragould police warn of scam

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - If someone calls saying they’re raising money for a school booster club, don’t believe them.

According to the Paragould Regional Chamber of Commerce, someone claiming to be with the Paragould School District’s Booster Club is calling residents and asking for money.

In exchange for a donation, the fraudster claims their name will be placed on t-shirts and their business mentioned at home football games.

This is not true.

The chamber warns if you receive one of these phone calls, don’t give them any information or any money.

Instead, hang up and call the Paragould Police Department at (870) 236-7621.
