Beware the Scam!
The Island Community is fantastic in supporting MDI High School sport's endeavors. When we seek advertisers for our coverage of MDI Football, Basketball and the Soccer and Baseball games that we broadcast on WDEA AM 1370 we are heartened by the results. Unfortunately, there is a company that is a complete scam, and is attempting to pray upon the community's support for the MDI Trojans. That company is Sports Media out of Maryland.
Sports Media has been rated F by the Better Business Bureau. There are only 3 authorized companies that are working with the MDI High School Athletic Department. Us, at Townsquare Media, Mainely Promotions from Brewer, and their representative is Barry Holbert and Maine Athletic Fundraising out of Bangor. Mainely Promotions does do a local calendar and Maine Athletic Fundraising does the discount cards.
Of course the school works closely with the Mount Desert Islander and Ellsworth American as well.
Don't give out credit cards over the phone! Don't pay an invoice that you might receive from Sports Media. If you ever have any questions, call Bunky Dow at the High School at 288-5011
