Fans of the Cowden-Herrick/Beecher City girls basketball team are fired up after the Hornets won their Class 1A Super-Sectional game Monday night over Goreville.

However, someone unauthorized might be trying to cash in on the team's success.

Beecher City Superintendent of Schools Scott Cameron phoned us Tuesday morning that some district residents have received phone calls from someone soliciting money.  Cameron said the residents were told the caller was collecting money for the CHBC girls and was asking for the credit card or debit card numbers of those called. 

Cameron said the callers are not affiliated with the team or the schools.  He asked us to let you know.  Please don't give out your credit card or debit card numbers to someone you don't know.  It's okay to simply hang up on the caller.
