Stressed students who have recently spread their wings and left the comforts of home can be seen as an easy target for scammers. Right now, police are warning University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) students to be wary of people on campus posing as Apple employees.

News 4 San Antonio says that these scammers are dressed up to look as if they work for Apple to gain students’ trust. They will approach asking for participants in an online survey that will result in receiving money. Unfortunately, the student who fills out his or her information has inadvertently filled out a credit application to open multiple phone lines for which they will be charged fees.

KSAT writes that “UTSA police said people who are approached by one of these pseudo employees should not fill out the survey and should immediately call them at 210-458-4911.”

If students don’t already, they should follow the UTSA Police Department on Facebook to see updates about what’s happening around campus. Scammers aren’t the only issue the police posted about yesterday. They’ve also had multiple car burglaries at the “…University Oaks apartment complex located on the UTSA Main Campus.” Find out more information here.
