UMPD is cautioning University of Maryland students to be aware of possible fraudulent solicitations to charitable causes. Over the past few weeks an individual or individuals have been posing as a representative of charitable organizations in the Adele H. Stamp Union and in the libraries. Solicitation is generally prohibited except in certain locations on campus at certain times. If you are approached by someone claiming to be raising money for an organization and believe them to be suspicious, please contact UMPD at 301-405-3555.
