There is a company called DigitalTown that has decided it's business
model would be to impersonate school websites. They then sell ad
space and merchandise targeted at local businesses. They have gone
as far as to send press releases in some places about the website
to local newspapers. Most concerning, is that they pedal a digital
currency and do not use encryption when asking for credit card info.
DIGITALTOWN.COM and its network are not affiliated with Southeast
Warren School. All trademarks are held by their respective holders.
BEWARE of contributing to this site on Southeast Warren's behalf.
In spite of their "secure checkout" claim, the site is
not secure and the funds DO NOT come to us.
Partners in Education Direct Donation Drive
