Hanover school district warns of solicitation scam

Hanover school district warns of solicitation scam

Hanover Community School Corp.

CEDAR LAKE — If you get a call asking for donations from someone claiming to be a project manager with Hanover Community School Corp., don't be fooled — it's a scam.

The school district warned the public of the recent scam, which has been targeting local businesses, in a Tuesday news release on its Facebook page.

In many cases, businesses were contacted by a person who claimed to be in charge of project management with the schools' practice fields. The person then asked for donations, claiming they would be used for signs.

Ride along with LaPorte Police Specialist Justin Dyer as he patrols the streets of LaPorte.

"This is a scam and Hanover is NOT soliciting funds for any projects," the release states.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Cedar Lake Police Department at 219-374-4444.
