Scrip Advantage under investigation.... where's your money?

Post by vore » Thu Dec 01, 2005 11:20 am

The O.C. Register has an article regarding Scrip Advantage on page 3 of the News Section dated November 30, 2005.

According to the article, "Scrip Advantage is being investigated by the Fresno County District Attorney's Office. It's accused of bilking hundreds of thousands of dollars from more than 200 schools and nonprofit organizations across the country, officials said. The schools and groups have filed complaints in recent weeks."

The article lists some of the groups in Orange County who are owed funds by Scrip Advantage. They include the Esperanza HS Band $5,000 and the Fountain Valley HS Band $2,000.

Contact your boosters ASAP to see if they are involved with Scrip Advantage.

What a nightmare...
