General Announcements for Students,
Faculty, & Staff

Beware: Cheap Food Fraud!

It has come to our office's attention that there is a twitter account @SamsNY, as well as others, that are promoting $15 for $50 worth of food or something of that nature. Apparently this is very popular amongst our students.The twitter handle asks students for their name, phone number, and place of delivery. The twitter handle is also asking them to send $15 to this anonymous twitter handle via GooglePlay accounts, in exchange for $50 worth of food. It seems that this twitter handle is actually (on the back end), hacking domino accounts and using stolen credit cards of random unknown people.
