SAN ANTONIO – University of Texas at San Antonio police are warning students about a scam that's targeting people in the campus area.

Police said people are posing as Apple employees and approaching others to fill out an online survey, with the promise of a participatory fee.

The survey, however, is actually a credit application to open numerous phone lines. The victims will then be stuck with the phone lines and related charges.

UTSA police said people who are approached by one of these pseudo employees should not fill out the survey and should immediately call them at 210-458-4911.
