SCAM ALERT: Bogus Scam Reported in Big Lake

BIG LAKE - Reagan County law enforcement officials are warning residents there to beware of someone trying to scam folks out of money by claiming to be part of a donation for injured students.

You'll remember an accident from a week ago when a Coastal Chemical tanker truck slammed into a Reagan County ISD school bus.

School officials have told us they are working with Coastal, the company who owns that tanker, to help pay for some of the medical expenses, but they are not relying on any local charitable organizations to help pay for those costs.

Deputies warn any residents who are approached by someone seeking donations on behalf of the school district to call authorities immediately.
