Scam Alert: Lexington Public Schools

KCNI/KBBN received a warning from the Lexington Chamber of Commerce and phone call from a scammer promoting a winter sports campaign with Lexington Public Schools. Please be aware that this is a scam and that Lexington Schools is NOT promoting any winter sports campaign. The number being used by this scammer is (469) 209-6940.

The phone call received by KCNI/KBBN, from the scammer, is very convincing. They will use information that is publicly available to try and convince you that their business is legitimate. In the phone conversation, the scammer used Lexington’s Cheer Team as a way to try and draw large sums of money for T-shirt advertising. Do not give out personal information and if you have questions please call the local authorities or, in this case, check with the school.
