Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies are warning Niceville residents to be aware of a scam. Scofflaws are pretending to fundraise on behalf of an area high school.
According to Niceville High School, a company using names, like “Sports Media Advertising,” is contacting local businesses about donating funds to benefit the school.
Officials say these scammers do not represent Niceville High School in anyway.
If residents get any similar calls from people claiming to be another school, authorities ask they call the school directly and verify the program before any donation is made.
