CLINTON – Hamilton College officials are warning the public about a scam currently taking place around the college campus.

School officials say individuals pretending to be salespeople affiliated with the college are approaching area businesses in an effort to get those businesses to buy printed materials such as pamphlets or calendars. The college says the fraudulent salespeople “insinuate a relationship with the College that does not exist”.

Officials say if you have been approached by someone claiming to be a salesperson working with Hamilton College you should gather as much information about the individual as you can, including names and contact info, and call Campus Safety Director Frank Coots at 315-859-4141 or Communications Director Mike Debraggio at 315-859-4654. There are student organizations which do work with local businesses, so the college says it can help sort out who is legitimate and who is not.

Hamilton College says it has filed a complaint with the State Attorney General’s Office.
