UR Warns of Scam Artists
University of Richmond police have issued an updated warning about scam artists working neighborhoods near the school.
It had been reported that individuals were representing themselves as U. R. student athletes and asking money for books and international travel. The latest word is they're also claiming to be students at other colleges, specifically, Virginia Tech.
Investigators say there may be one or more people stopping at any given house and they're asking anyone who is approached by these scam artists to ask for the individual's university I.D. and then call 289-8715 and report the incident.
