PSA: Warning Live Streaming Internet Scamming
The New Mexico Activities Association wants to warn the public about a growing trend in internet scamming. There are hundreds of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube events being promoted, sometimes within prominent online groups, that appear to be real live streams, but are phishing for your personal information, and sometimes trying to install malware on your device.
These posts appear to be legitimately scheduled live streams and be associated with a high school or state association. However, when you click on the link, you are typically asked to enter personal information in order to gain access to the video. These are fake. Do not enter any information.
The NFHS Network is the official video streaming platform of the NMAA. Many of our member schools are utilizing this platform for their own broadcasting needs. However, during the regular season, many schools have decided to use other entities to do their live streaming. Please check with your local high school athletic department for the correct location to watch your favorite team safely. Cats Network is the only live streaming platform used for Deming High School home events.
When on social media, the NMAA maintains a single official account on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms. The official account for each platform is: @_NMAA for Twitter, AllThingsNMAA on Instagram, and New Mexico Activities Association on Facebook. Some scammers use the NMAA or NFHS logos and other marks to try and deceive you, but there is only one official account for each platform controlled by the NMAA and no sport-specific accounts will be created or used to promote our events.
To protect yourself and your fans from these fake accounts, please verify you are only sharing/posting/retweeting information from our official accounts. The links in our posts AND the link on our profile/bio will ONLY link to the NFHS. If you come across a fake account, please report it by following the platform-specific instructions below.
1.Open the profile you’d like to report.
2.Select the three dot icon
3.Select Report and then select the type of issue you’d like to report.
