Calendar scam targets fans
A company taking advantage of Borderite spirit in the community is trying to convince local businesses to buy advertising space in a calendar that may not exist.
Ive heard from business people whove gotten a call from a company, whose representatives say theyre located in the east, trying to sell ads for a football calendar, said high school athletic director Gary Clausen. They have no permission to do this from us. Its just another scam.
Blaine high school produces its own seasonal sports calendars, Clausen said. We wouldnt use a company back east, he said. We try to keep things local so the dollars stay in the county.
Clausen said it isnt the first time companies have tried to capitalize on school spirit, but he said buyers should make sure the product has the endorsement of the school and will benefit local students and teams. If anyone gets an offer and they have questions they should call us, he said.
