Midland College Warning People About New Scam

MIDLAND - Someone is using Midland College's name to scam people not in town but in other states.

A letter asks you to be a "secret store evaluator," then they send you a check that looks like a student refund check.

The checks have the Midland College logo and their bank routing number but Midland College's bank won't honor them.

Once people have the checks, they are told to call a number.

They're asked to buy six $500 Green-Dot reloadable cards.

Midland College officials believe money from those cards you buy is transferred electronically to the crooks.

If you get this offer, call Midland College at 685-4530.
