Two Penn State Harrisburg students have reported to University Police that they have received calls while at their off-campus housing unit from someone identifying themselves as a police officer, saying that they had a warrant for the students’ arrest and demanding that they pay a sum of money in the form of prepaid credit cards to avoid arrest.
The callers also had some personal information about the students that is publicly available (e.g. Penn State e-mail address, major, etc.) in an attempt to make this phone call seem more credible.
