IUPUI warns students about false online ads

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – IUPUI officials are urging students to use caution when responding to online postings on Craigslist or other sites that claim to involve a school on campus.

The warning comes after a post Monday night by someone who claimed to be a teaching assistant at the Herron School of Art and Design. The post was soliciting nude models and requested photos supposedly for a project dealing with sex trafficking and female empowerment.

A student who responded to the post contacted Herron Tuesday morning and learned that there is no such project.

IUPUI said that Herron does not seek figure models through Craigslist.

Students are encouraged to contact any school in question prior to responding to a classified ad.
