The Prescott Police Department is seeking information about a possible fraudulent scheme affecting several local businesses and is interested in identifying potential victims of this fraud. A company named HS Backers has been soliciting local businesses selling advertising purportedly to benefit local high schools. The company is not affiliated with any local school, particularly the Prescott High School, and none of the proceeds from the advertising goes to benefit local schools or programs. As such, the Prescott Police Department is interested in learning more about the nature of these transactions and to identify any potential criminal acts that may have occurred as a result of the solicitations.
If you or your business has been solicited by HS Backers please contact the Prescott Police Department to file a report or go to http://www.prescott-az.gov/services/police/citizen-online-reporting.php to file an online report.
Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact Prescott Police Detective Jeremy Brazell at (928)777-1925. Those who wish to remain anonymous and who want a cash reward must call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
