Caller ID Phone Scams

Please be aware that Norwin School District has received communication from members of the community stating that telephone scams are being represented as originating from Norwin School District caller ID.  Spoofing a caller ID name is quite common.  Generally, calls from the Norwin School District will originate from 724-861-3000.  These telephone scams will originate from other unknown numbers, but the name on the phone may show up as Norwin School District.  They are an attempt to sell you products or services and have no affiliation to the District.

If you receive one of these phone calls, please reference the website below.  The referenced site describes the ability for scammers to fake a caller ID name and provides two links to the FTC and FCC websites that allow you to report the malicious phone number.
