Important Information: Fraudulent Activity Targeting The University of Pennsylvania bank accounts.

Recently, there has been a flurry of fraudulent checks drawn on some of the University of Pennsylvania's bank accounts with Wachovia. These checks have been sent to individuals and companies unassociated with Penn. Fortunately, many of these recipients have contacted Penn to alert us to this fraud.

The checks may be accompanied by correspondence directing the individuals to deposit the checks into their accounts and often directs the recipients to refund a percentage elsewhere and keep a percentage for themselves.

If for any reason you have received an unanticipated check from The University of Pennsylvania it should not be deposited, and you should contact the Penn’s Office of the Treasurer at (215) 898-7256. You may also fax a copy of a suspect check to (215) 573-6392 or send an email to

Please see the Department of Treasury’s website for their fraudulent check advisory.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s website also contains a counterfeit check warning.
