Telephone Mischief and Fraud for Employees

In order to protect the University and its departments from unauthorized charges, this policy was developed to help identify the types of events considered to be financially fraudulent or mischievous to the University. Any type of activity generating an unusual charge to the University by any person including employees, contractors, or students that cannot be processed by standard methods, requiring research and extra handling, or incurred without specific fiscal authorization are normally considered mischief and fraud under this policy. Depending on the severity of an incident, telephone fraud and mischief can be considered felony crimes punishable by law. University Police will investigate and prosecute offenders.

Please direct questions about particular intended uses or expected charges to the Telecommunications Office at (562) 985-4480.
