Recent incidences have been reported in which individuals are attempting to scam local businesses by asking for sponsorships for Blue Earth Area athletics.

One local business was contacted and asked to contribute a $500 donation which would sponsor a Buccaneer athletics poster.

However, those asking for sponsorships are not involved with the BEA schools but have been using the school to scam business owners.

“After being contacted, one local business owner called out to the high school to ask about the sponsorship,” BEA superintendent Evan Gough says.

Gough adds if anyone ever questions any solicitations to call the high school.

“If you ever question anything of this nature, please call the high school directly,”?he says.
