Decorah police warn about school scam

Posted: Updated:
DECORAH (KWWL) -

The Decorah police department is warning about a scam using the school district's name to raise money.

The scammer e-mail states the Decorah Community School District PTA's and sports teams are making plans for their social and event calendars for this spring, and are using the website GroupRaise to organize fundraisers at local restaurants. The e-mail asks recipients to use the website GroupRaise. 

According to police, the Decorah Community School District does not support, endorse, nor have any affiliation with GroupRaise.

In addition, the Decorah Community School District does not have a PTA, but instead a PTO.
