Douglas Police warn of school scam

Persons who are identifying themselves as a company possibly called “All-Around Sports” has once again been contacting local residents and businesses asking for money and donations to “purchase” posters and/or advertisements. They’re telling unsuspecting victims that the money raised is going to support the Douglas High School activities.

According to DHS and CCSD #1 staff, no company has been authorized to do this on their behalf. If you receive any types of calls or requests of this nature, police advise that yoou do not give them any information or money.

Because scams of this nature often originate out of the state or even country, DPD has no jurisdiction to investigate or prosecute.
