Mississippi Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley alerts the public of an ongoing scam in the state. A person claiming to be with Concepts, Inc. is contacting local businesses and citizens asking them to sponsor the local high school by purchasing spirit items such as footballs, rally rags and pep rally items. These calls are coming from a 678 or 404 area code or 1-866-397-7330 and are often asking for sponsorships over $800.
“I am asking for the public’s help in prosecuting this scam artist. Anyone called by this number or who has sent money to this fraudulent company should contact our investigators immediately,” Presley said.
If you have been contacted by someone with Concepts, Inc. asking to sponsor a local high school, please contact Presley’s office at 1-800-637-7722 or email@example.com.
