UNLV warns about phony solicitations on behalf of football team

Several Las Vegas businesses have said a man claiming to be associated with the UNLV football team has been soliciting money.

“This person is not a student-athlete at UNLV and is not affiliated with the Athletics Department in any way,” the university said in a news release. “No UNLV student-athlete will ever directly solicit donations on behalf of the school.”

The school advises business owners to report such solicitations to police.
