Someone has been using the University's name and credit references in an attempt to open accounts with several vendors across the country. The credit reference letter is generally an altered version of the one previously found on our website, and the person(s) refer to themselves as being “Hugh Horowitz, Executive Director from Columbia University." This is not factual and should be reported. If you have any suspicion about any contact/request you receive that indicates it is from Columbia University, please contact (212) 854-4111 immediately to confirm.
