DARIEN, Conn. – Darien Police were warning local business owners and residents about a possible scam involving people who claim to be collecting donations for Darien High School sports teams.
Callers identifying themselves as from “End Zone Athletics” or another marketing company are claiming to do pro-bono work for the Darien High athletic department, Darien Police said on their Facebook page Thursday. Most of the calls have come from a number with a 214 area code, which is linked to Dallas, Texas.
The callers are asking businesses to buy advertisements and sponsorships for sports teams for the school. The solicitations are not authorized or affiliated with Darien High School, police said.
Business owners and residents are advised not to deal with these callers. Anyone who has sent money to them previously should contact the Darien Police Detective Bureau at 203-662-5330.
