Shortly after 10:00 pm this evening, three students reported seeing a male that they described as white with short blonde hair wearing only a white t-shirt outside of Linderman Library. The students reported that the male may have been carrying a long, shiny, metal object that could not be positively identified.  Lehigh University Police arrived on the scene shortly after the report. The area has been searched and no further sighting has occurred.  Anyone with additional information is asked to contact LUPD at 610-758-4200.

Fraudulent activity reported

To the Lehigh community, a number of students have reported being contacted by outside companies offering to pay for students' participation in research studies. Students have reported being issued checks for amounts greater than promised. Students were then urged to deposit the checks and return the amount that was overpaid via Western Union or Google Play Gift Cards. The students later learned that the original check was fraudulent and that there was no research study.  We caution anyone who is contacted with an offer like this to verify the company's legitimacy before participating.   Please contact LUPD at (610) 758-4200 if you suspect you are being targeted for this kind of activity before you make any payments and it is too late.
