Summerville High School cold call warning

Local News

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) — A warning from Summerville High School officials. A company called Touchdown Sports is cold calling local business asking them to sponsor SHS athletics.

The school posted on Facebook that the company does not represent the school and the call should be considered a scam.

The News 2 I-Team did some digging and found other NBC stations in Fort Worth, Texas and Charlotte, North Carolina have reported similar scams involving Touchdown Sports.

Also, Beaufort County School District reported a similar scam in April.

We’re told the only way to advertise at venues or events is by contacting Athletic Director Brion Rutherford at brutherford@dorchester2.k12.sc.us or 843-873-6460. If you get a call from Touchdown Sports, please also contact Rutherford.
