MTU warns local businesses about ad scams

The Michigan Tech Athletics Department wants to make sure you’re aware of a scam making the rounds.

Several people have received contact from an unnamed company stating they represent MTU Athletics. The scammer offers advertisement opportunities at athletic events being held off campus. The University wants you to know this is a scam.

The Athletics department will never ask you to advertise in other cities or states, as advertising proceeds benefit the Athletic and Recreation Department. If you receive a call like this, gather as much information as you can about the caller, and let MTU know immediately. Until the university has proof of who created the scam, they have no way to address the issue.

If you have any info, please contact the Athletics Office at (906) 487-1915
