One of the biggest door-to-door scams is back, according to Arizona State University. Reports have come from several cities in the Phoenix area that young adults are going door to door selling magazine subscriptions to collect money for a trip to London, the University reported in an e-mail to students.
The sales people for the scam are representing themselves as students of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, according to University personnel. They were collecting checks in the name of a company called Integrity TGM.
There have been other instances of this kind of scam in the past, but recently the numbers have skyrocketed. The School of Journalism has denied any connection to the company. "To reiterate, the Cronkite School has no connection with this magazine scam," representatives said in the e-mail.
Requests for information should be sent to Frederic Leigh, Associate Dean of the Cronkite school at 480-965-5011, or Frederic.email@example.com.
