BEWARE of this SCAM!
A company who calls themselves All School Fundraising Direct,
ASF Direct, is calling on area businesses wanting them
to advertise on a paper sized magnetic ad board.
Ads like this are common when working with area schools
and fundraising organizations.

They claim to be working with our school district,
Labette County Unified School District #506.
The school district has no knowledge of this and does not endorse the company.
In short, area businesses should pay heed that this company
does not represent our school at all or actually raising money for the district.
