Phone scams resurface

  Don't Fall For It  

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has noted a resurgence of phone scams targeting college students where the incoming call has been spoofed to appear as if it is originating from an FBI field office. The caller claims to be an FBI agent and demands immediate payment for school loans or tuition. On occasion, the caller will threaten the victim with arrest or a hold on graduation unless immediate payment is made through MoneyGram or a similar system.

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