Scam Alert: Hoax JSU Fundraiser


University and local police are investigating reports of an individual falsely representing themselves as a JSU student seeking donations for a chili cookoff fundraiser. The university is unaware of any such event being organized by a JSU club or organization at this time. Police urge citizens to be vigilant and, if contacted by this individual, to report it to the local police department.

Citizens can check the validity of a student fundraiser by calling the Dean of Students Office at 256-782-5491. JSU student groups are reminded to please register fundraisers by submitting a Fundraising Form to the Dean of Students Office.
