Unauthorized solicitation of funds occurring in Ponca City area

November 18, 2010

Northwestern Oklahoma State University officials have been contacted by alumni in Ponca City about the possibility of a phone solicitation scam in the area.

Someone representing a “partner charity group” is indicating they are soliciting funds on behalf of the university, and the calls appear to be coming from Alva.

Any solicitations on behalf of Northwestern are conducted by the Northwestern Foundation or officially recognized university organizations.
Any questions regarding the validity of solicitation of funds for Northwestern should be directed to Steve Valencia, associate vice president for university relations, at (580) 327-8478 or the Foundation Office at (580) 327-8593.
