OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - The superintendent of the Lafayette School District has a warning.

This warning comes after someone tried to raise money without telling him or the school district.

According to Adam Pugh, the company named Endzone asked businesses to donate to the athletic department in Lafayette County.

Endzone approached businesses such as banks and security companies.

The only contact on the letter was simply: Emily.

According to Pugh, if the company was raising money for the schools, he knew nothing about it.

Pugh said any legitimate fundraiser would be presented on official letterhead and would have contact information.
