Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington would like to warn the community about an email scam which hit the campus yesterday.
“As of right now, we believe it is isolated to EWC employees,” stated Dr. Lesley Travers, President. “But we wanted to share this information because it could easily happen to other businesses.”
Several EWC employees received emails from Dr. Travers asking if they were available. At first glance, the emails seemed authentic. Once employees responded, they were asked to make purchases of iTunes cards for her since she was in a meeting.
The Torrington Police Department has been contacted and will be working with EWC.
