Two young women posing as Sacramento State students are running a magazine-selling scam, university officials said.
The young women claim to be students from the university's Department of Theatre & Dance. They purport to be selling magazines to win a trip to London and they claim the department will use magazine sales proceeds to put on a production of "The Taming of the Shrew."
A press release from California State University, Sacramento also states that the two women falsely claim they are raising money for Shriner's Hospital.
Neither Shriners nor Sacramento State solicits funds in the manner being conducted by the two women, the university said. The Theatre & Dance Department is not sponsoring any trips to London.
