GRCC Warns of Scam Artist Claiming to be Fundraising for the College
A man knocking on doors here in Grand Rapids, claiming to be collecting cash donations for Grand Rapids Community College and the Boys and Girls Club of Grand Rapids, is actually attempting to scam people, according to GRCC.
The college stated Tuesday that a Rockford resident contacted them about the man, saying that he seemed suspicious. That resident said that the man was going door-to-door on Sunday, September 28, attempting to collect funds and saying that he's part of the "GRCC Entrepreneur Club."
Problem is that GRCC doesn't have any recognized club with that name, and neither they nor the Boys and Girls Club of Grand Rapids asks for donations in this manner.
If you encounter a similar situation, it's being asked that you call your local police department to report the subject's description, last known location, and direction of travel.
