Lincoln-Way email phishing scam resurfaces
Tuesday, April 11, 2017

District officials have been made aware of an email phishing scam that has resurfaced 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 and product 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 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.

Anyone in the Lincoln-Way area who has donated money to individuals claiming to be associated with TD Sports should file a report with a local police station.
