Scam Warning: Door to Door Sales in Northwest Arkansas Don’t Benefit U of A Students

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A familiar scam appears to have returned to Northwest Arkansas now that school is out: young people selling books or magazines, claiming to be associated with the University of Arkansas and saying they are raising money for a trip or an internship in London. The U of A communications department has received calls and emails asking about this scam and it appears the group is operating from Fayetteville to Bella Vista.

There is no such sale of material or program going on, by the communications or any other University of Arkansas department. If approached by these people it is recommended that you do not make a purchase, and call the police.
