Superintendents & Business Managers,
The Montana High School Association has informed the OPI about a billing scam that may be getting sent to schools. They received an email from a Darrell Demerritt with an invoice attached requesting payment for “consultancy service”. They even went as far as to send a W-9 form (in another person’s name) when requested.
If you receive a similar suspicious invoice, please feel free to forward it to your local law enforcement and/or the Department of Justice.
Timothy W. Tharp, Ed.D.
Deputy State Superintendent
