South Arkansas Community College is warning the public about someone trying to sell advertising for a sports publication associated with the school.
Officials with the El Dorado college say that on Wednesday morning they received a report that a company had solicited advertising from an area business for a printed game schedule for the South Arkansas Community College Cougars sports team.
The problem? There is no such sports team. In fact, SouthArk has no sports teams at all.
College officials are advising citizens and business owners throughout the region that any such solicitations should be considered bogus and therefore should be ignored.
SouthArk administrators have alerted the Arkansas Attorney General's Office about the situation.
The school posted the following alert on its Facebook
page:ATTENTION: If you are solicited, or anyone who you know is solicited, to buy advertising on a sports schedule for South Arkansas Community College, please DO NOT BUY IT. SouthArk HAS NO sports teams. We have been given word that a company has been attempting to sell advertising on such a schedule in our area. This company is in no way affiliated with SouthArk. Please share this with as many people as possible.
