The public needs to be aware of the latest scam in Fresno. Someone claiming to represent Fresno State is asking for donations to support the university.
The call originates from a non-working number at Fresno State, namely 278-0000. And more revealing is the fact that the caller (in my case, a woman with no accent) called me Mr. David, not Mr. Davenport. The only people on the planet who would make this mistake are folks in China and perhaps other East Asian countries where a person’s surname is said first, and the given name is last, as in Mao Zedong. This infamous Communist was known as Chairman Mao, not Chairman Zedong.
When this gal, or anyone else claiming to represent Fresno State calls, please just hang up without giving any information.
David Paul Davenport, Fresno
