Fraudulent fundraisers claim to represent AC


By CARTER HALL, Staff Reporter |

The Amarillo College police department is warning people about a door-to-door sales scam. 

On Feb. 8, officials sent a campus-wide email stating that a male and female were going door-to-door trying to collect money by selling magazine subscriptions. 

The email further explained that the subjects said they were selling the magazines to raise money for an AC-sponsored trip to London. 

“They are selling magazine subscriptions to pay for internships with the BBC in London,” Wesley Condray-Wright, the director of marketing and communication, said in a news release. 

Condray-Wright said the subjects claimed to be “AC mass communication students.” 

“This scam is in no way connected to our program,” Jill Gibson, Matney Mass Media chair, said. “We never conduct this type of fundraiser.”

“I’m disappointed that people would try to take advantage of students and the school as a whole,” Drake Hutton, a mass media major, said.
