Scam targets Butte High sports supporters

Scam targets Butte High sports supporters

Butte High fans

At a balmy 14-degrees above zero, these die-hard fans started setting up camp outside Naranche Stadium at 8 a.m., with the actual game hours away. For tickets? Not hardly. They already have their tickets, thank you very much! They’re braving the cold to get the best seats in the house. None of these eight people have missed a home game. Even more impressive, they have not missed an out-of-town game, either. Fans include, from left, Ramey Averyt, Peggy Bolton, Stacey Lee Bauer, Jaylynn Chiotti, Heidi Stewart, and Paul Selfors. In front are Megan Ross and Cindy Lammi.

The Butte High School athletics department is alerting residents to bogus out-of-state telemarketers targeting the Butte community once again to solicit contributions for Butte High athletics.

Out-of-state and internet businesses solicit the Butte community for advertisements in their publications. They use the Butte High name and Butte High athletic schedules making it appear you are supporting your Bulldogs.

Butte High School activities do not receive one cent of the money paid to out-of-state vendors, Athletic Director Chuck Merrifield said in a news release.

Merrifield said when our coaches or kids knock on your door or stop at your business, they will have Butte High School identification. These letter jackets, activity cards, letterheads, promotional fliers, or other articles will clearly state that these are your Butte High Bulldogs, or Butte Athletic Council.

The Butte High Bulldogs appreciate your support and want to make sure your contribution goes where you want it to go.
