Lincoln-Way email phishing scam
Monday, November 7, 2016
District officials have been made aware of an email phishing scam in the Lincoln-Way area. Individuals claiming to work for a custom t-shirt and spirit wear company (TD Sports) have sent emails to local Lincoln-Way area businesses claiming to have sponsorship opportunities available through t-shirt sales. The individuals sending these emails have no association with Lincoln-Way, or with TD Sports, a North Carolina based business.
Residents and/or business owners who receive solicitation asking for a financial donation from TD Sports in exchange for sponsorship of Lincoln-Way spirit wear and/or accessories should not offer financial information or payment of any form. Any donations made to this individual will not benefit the students or operations of District 210. Additionally, any donation made will not result in a Lincoln-Way sponsorship of companies or individuals.
