The Parish was informed today that someone has cashed a fraudulent check that was represented as being issued by the “Breda Town Head Start Center Inc.” Please be advised that the Parish of Natchitoches, as grantee for the federal Head Start program, does not issue any checks in any name other than the Parish of Natchitoches. The Breda Town Head Start Center and the other five centers operated by the Parish in Natchitoches and DeSoto Parishes are not authorized to issue any checks of any kind whatsoever.
It is recommended that local businesses take appropriate action to ensure that they do not fall victim to this illegal activity. Anyone who is presented any “Head Start” check should immediately contact the appropriate law enforcement authorities for assistance.
If there are any questions concerning this matter, please contact Ms. Debbie Miley, Parish Treasurer, at 318-352-2714.
