CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH)– Cheshire officials are warning residents of scam calls being made to local businesses.

According to the Superintendent of Schools in Cheshire, local businesses are receiving calls from a Euless, Texas (phone # 682-292-9292) soliciting donations from Cheshire High School.

Cheshire High School has even been displayed in the caller ID in some instances.

The caller then claims that they are a project coordinator with the high school, seeking donations for some school projects.

The caller also says that for $300, they can place an advertisement on football jerseys.

The Superintendent says that this is all a scam.
