Scam artists posing as student fundraisers

05-24-2011

Beware of two young women posing as students from the Department of Theatre & Dance who are selling magazines “to win a trip to London.”  Their scam claims that the department will use the proceeds to put on a production of “The Taming of the Shrew.” They also claim to be raising money for Shriners hospital.

Shriners does not solicit funds in this manner. Nor is Sac State’s Theatre & Dance Department sponsoring any trips to London or other places this summer.

Last year, several faculty and staff members reported suspicious behavior by people claiming to be connected to the University program. Sac State does not send our students out to solicit funds in any manner, other than pre-approved, on-campus activities directly connected to productions during the school year.
