The Georgia Southern University office of public safety sent an email out to all GS campuses announcing University police department receiving reports of staff and faculty members having their address changed.

“University police believe the goal of this large-scale fraud is to attempt to obtain fraudulent credit cards by having the cards sent to the new address,” the email reads. 

The email listed several tips for students, faculty and staff who have fallen victim to fraudulent activity including going to the US Post Office to report the fraudulent address change and request your postal address is unable to be changed unless in-person.

The office of public safety also urges to report any fraudulent activity to Law Enforcement and obtain credit reports.
