Fake fundraiser draws concerns
06/11/2018

(KLZA)--Suspected scammers are using the name of a Peru State College supporter in an attempted, fraudulent, fundraising campaign.

Jerry Joy, of Stella, is sending the alert that the questionable effort does not have his support.

In a release Joy, a former, longtime employee of the college, says along with his name, the name of the Peru State Foundation is being falsely used.

He says images, and information, from the college's website, and social media accounts, are also being used as part of what the release says is an unapproved campaign.

Joy, nor the college, are currently raising money for a grant, or other projects, and the Foundation has reached its goal for the Jerry Joy Home Locker Room, meaning no additional funds are being requested.

Anyone who is contacted on behalf of the unauthorized fundraiser should contact local law enforcement.

Questions may be directed to the Peru State College Foundation at 402-872-2304.
