Attention SaberNation!

Please read and share this important message to help keep our school community safe from scammers! 🚨

We wanted to take a moment to address a concerning issue that has come to our attention recently. It has come to our notice that scammers are attempting to sell various items and tickets associated with our beloved school. 😱

Sadly, these scammers are preying on the trust and excitement we all share for our school events, and we need to remain vigilant together. Our top priority is ensuring the safety and well-being of all our students and community members, so we wanted to alert you to these fraudulent activities and provide some tips to protect yourselves from falling victim to these scams.

👉 First and foremost, ONLY purchase tickets or items related to our school events from official and authorized sources. Be cautious when encountering unfamiliar or random sellers online who claim to have tickets or exclusive merchandise.

👉 Secondly, always verify the legitimacy of the seller or website before making any transactions. Do your research, check for reviews or past experiences to ensure you're dealing with trustworthy sources.

👉 Additionally, remember to never share personal or financial information online with anyone you don't trust completely. Stay safe and protect your identity!

👉 Lastly, if you come across any suspicious posts, pages, or people claiming to sell items associated with our school, report them immediately to the page admins or contact school authorities directly. We're all in this together, and we need your help in keeping our community safe.

Please spread the word and share this post with your fellow classmates, friends, and family members connected to our school. The more people we reach, the better prepared we'll be to safeguard against these scams.

Stay alert, stay informed, and prioritize your safety above all else. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us combat these scammers. Let's protect our school community together! ❤️🙌
