TU warns about door-to-door scams

Thursday, April 28, 2011

The University of Tulsa has received reports that individuals posing as students are going door to door in the Tulsa area seeking solicitations to benefit student groups or the university.

University officials are letting the public know that TU, its students and its student organizations do not engage in door-to-door solicitation. Money or donations given to these individuals does not go to the university. The incidents reported this week have occurred in Tulsa and a neighboring community.

If you or someone you know is approached by someone claiming to represent The University of Tulsa in a door-to-door solicitation, you are asked to end the conversation as soon as possible, get a description of the individual and then report it to local law enforcement.
