A number of Santa Clarita residents have purchased what appeared to be counterfeit discount cards from people claiming to be William S. Hart High School students, according to district officials.

Dave Caldwell, public information officer for the William S. Hart Union High School District, issued a warning message to all families within the school district.

The message is as follows:

As you know, many of our students participate in fundraising activities throughout the year for their performing groups, sports or clubs. However, it has been brought to our attention that there are young people claiming to be affiliated with Hart High School selling phony discount cards in the Valencia and greater Santa Clarita Valley area (please see attached photos of the discount cards). If you are approached by any student claiming to be selling anything as part of a fundraiser within the Hart School District, please ask to see their student ID card. If you are faced with a group you believe is misrepresenting a school within the district, please alert the SCV Sheriff’s department at 661-255-1121.

If you have any information, contact the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department.
