Beware of the Scammers! Part Two

Ashley Tedesco, blog editor

It seems many Fordham students and faculty members have received email requests today from a graduate student by the name of Mattew Lootens for $1550. Lootens’ personal email account was compromised, according to an email blast from the University, and any requests coming from it are a scam. John Carroll, associate vice president of the University, noted in the email that emails requesting monetary help from a foreign country, or calls asking for bail money, are also generally scams, but any member of the community who has questions about a suspicious call or email is encouraged to call Security at (212) 636-7111 and ask to speak to the Duty Supervisor regarding the requests.

Carroll also reminded members of the community about the email scam early last month involving college student educational grants, covered on the Observatory.
