UTEP Police Warn of Magazine Sales Scam
EL PASO – Police at the University of Texas at El Paso say people have been impersonating university students and staff to try and sell magazine subscriptions.
The university says two people reported young men trying to sell them magazines, claiming to be part of a communication class at UTEP.
A similar incident happened in February in the Cielo Vista area.
“These vendors want to get the El Paso public to buy subscriptions and think they are doing so for the good of the University. UTEP does not engage in door-to-door solicitation,” said Cliff Walsh, chief of UTEP’s Police Department.
Anyone with concerns should report unwanted solicitations to the El Paso Police Department at 915-832-4400.
