Numerous Academics Have Been Duped by a Scam Using Names of Prominent Scholars.
Leatherman, Courtney
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n37 pA10-A11 May 23 1997
A convicted criminal, eluding police, has conned dozens of college faculty out of over $200,000 over two years by pretending to be a prominent scholar, calling on colleagues to provide financial assistance to a friend, and offering academic services or personal favors in return. Targeted professors have been in the fields of history, sociology, political science, and black studies. (MSE)
