HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The University of Alabama in Huntsville has put out a release after getting calls about strange fundraising activities.

"These individuals claiming to be students go door-to-door saying they're selling magazines," said Ray Garner, spokesman for the university,

The problem is -- there is no such fundraiser from the university.

"We don't do fundraising magazines sales," said Garner. "As a matter of fact, we don't do fundraising in the public to begin with."

All university fundraising is through student organizations or the school's foundation. So if these "students" come knocking on your door, don't reach for your wallet, because your generosity will just end up in the hands of scammers.
