Montgomery College Statement on Fraud Scheme Against the College
A fraud scheme perpetrated against Montgomery College earlier this month has been referred to the Baltimore Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement. The scheme followed a similar pattern to ones launched against other educational institutions. Upon learning of the fraud, the College took swift action to notify law enforcement and initiated an internal investigation into this fraud event. The crime resulted in a financial loss to the College and steps are being taken to recover the full amount.
The College will assist with all investigations of this matter. While these inquiries proceed, law enforcement has requested that the College refrain from releasing further information about them.
This incident will not interrupt student activities or College operations. The College will update students and employees as soon as more information becomes available and is authorized for release.
All media inquiries should be directed to Montgomery College Director of Media Relations Marcus Rosano.
