Security Services wishes to alert the community regarding an individual who has been roaming around inside University buildings for the past two weeks asking for money. This individual will claim to be acquainted with specific staff members within the faculty in order to gain your trust while explaining why he needs money. His story is very convincing. Please be wary and report any such occurrence to Security Services.
