Be cautious of phone scams asking for money

UTA students should be cautious of phone scams in which the callers identify themselves as members of UTA or a governmental agency, then threaten to arrest them on false or fictitious charges if immediate payment is not made to the suspects via a money card.

The calls are from individuals posing as representatives of local law enforcement agencies, state agencies, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), other federal agencies, and even UTA. Some calls target international students. The telephone number used may be a cloned number from a legitimate agency or University office.

University officials, law enforcement, and government officials will not contact you in this manner or threaten arrest for non-payment of debts.

If you or anyone you know has information related to such crimes, call the UTA Police Department at 817-272-3381.

Use good judgment and caution when clicking web or email links or opening attachments. If you receive an email that appears suspicious, send it to Do not click on the links or open attachments. LEARN MORE.
