MHCC warns of scam artist in the area

After receiving several reports of a man going door-to-door and misrepresenting himself as a Mt. Hood Community College student, the school is warning the public.

The man is reportedly soliciting donations for what he says is for the men’s indoor soccer team.

In a press release, the college warns of the scam, stating it does not have an indoor soccer team.

According to the release, victims report that the suspect portrays himself as a MHCC student and a member of the college’s men’s indoor soccer team, asking for donations for a team fundraiser. The victims are told as part of their donation they are entered into a drawing.

Later, the suspect returns to advise the victims that they have won a flat screen television and need only to pay the shipping charges; the television never arrives.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s, very tall with short dark hair and a slender build.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Gresham Police or Mt. Hood Community College Public Safety at 503-491-7310.
