The MSU Police Department is warning students and parents about a scholarship prize fraud scam.

This scam claims you've won a college scholarship worth thousands of dollars, but requires that you pay a "disbursement" or "redemption" fee on the taxes before they can release your prize.

The university has seen an increase in cases this school year.
