Watch Out: Scammers target people seeking college scholarships

Posted: Updated:

College-applying season is coming up quick, hand-in-hand with scholarship season, but police say parents and students should be on the lookout for scams this year. 

The Lompoc Police Department is warning the public for scammers targeting people who are applying and searching for college scholarships. 

Officers say scammers will call unsuspecting parents and high school students claiming they're offering a free scholarship, or that the  person who answered has won a scholarship. 

If this happens, but you haven't applied for the scholarship, police say hang up and contact them.
