Fraudsters are targeting college students

March 4, 2016

The UW-River Falls campus police have warned about the return of fraudulent phone calls requesting money from students. Students who have received a call have been threatened with various types of legal action unless they withdraw money from their bank accounts.

UWRF Police Chief, Karl Fleury, said that these types of calls happen in streaks and typically target more than one campus at a time. The calls can either be made in the form of a live representative or a robocall. Robocalls of this nature are illegal and should be reported to the Federal Trade Commission.

For more information, call the UWRF Police Department at 715-425-3133
