FRIDAY, Oct. 2, 2:30 p.m. — A 21-year-old female contacted UPD because she was reportedly the victim of fraud, Reilly said. The victim received an email from what she believed to be the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development about a job. She sent her resume to the employer via email. A person claiming to be a sociology professor at St. John’s University responded, saying that he needed someone to cash three checks for him. She was instructed to use part of the money to buy supplies for an orphanage overseas and to keep the rest as payment. The victim cashed the checks, but felt wary of the suspect’s intentions and contacted UPD. The case is still under investigation.
