GW Says Beware of Fake Student Door-to-Door Scammer

Officials at the George Washington University have issued a warning about a young woman who claims to be a GW student going door-to-door asking for donations for her "study abroad" program. When questioned about the program, she cannot provide any specifics. Some neighbors who have been approached have said that it quickly becomes clear that she is a scammer.

Britany J. Waddell, the Director of Community Relations at The George Washington University says, "The university has no indication that this person is in fact affiliated with the university and [we] ask neighbors to be cautious of such solicitations and notify the Metropolitan Police or GW police at 202-242-6110 immediately if you are  approached by anyone in such a manner."
