Officials: Be wary of phone solicitations

February 27, 2013

Big Spring school officials are asking people to take care if they are approached to buy advertising related to high school athletic programs.

High School Principal Mike Ritchey said he has recently received complaints from people who have bought advertising they thought was going to benefit local athletic programs.

“These firms have claimed they are representing Big Spring athletics … and that's false,” Ritchey said. “The proceeds from those ad sales are not going to benefit our kids.”
