Is this really a Stanford fund raising drive? Issues Beyond Palo Alto, posted by Bob, a resident of the Duveneck/St. Francis neighborhood, on Feb 24, 2010 at 8:24 pm
Tonight during supper we received a phone call allegedly from Stanford University soliciting money for "poor students" and particularly athletes. This doesn't sound like something Stanford would do, it sounds suspicious, and it reads like a scam. No one in our household is a Stanford alum, so we don't get the usual alum money requests. Has anyone else received a similar phone call?
