From Facebook to Venmo: How students are getting scammed out of Michigan football tickets

The Daily spoke with several students who fell victim to online football ticket scams in order to identify risk factors of a scam. Major red flags include the seller putting pressure on the buyer to pay for the ticket quickly and in full before receiving it, the seller demanding payment on unfamiliar payment apps, and the seller’s Facebook account not clearly indicating whether or not they are students. Students can avoid scams by using familiar payment apps such as Venmo and verifying sellers’ student status on MCommunity.

‘After We Fell’ and the complex art of fanfiction

The Miseducation Project is a platform connected to, but separate from, The Michigan Daily’s newspaper product. We work to cultivate a digital museum archive featuring art from students of color. The Miseducation Project views art as non-definitive (we review submissions of all forms, including traditional art, graphic design, music, dance, theater, code, mathematics, writing, etc.).

As we begin curating our next exhibit, loosely themed “Respiration,” we are opening submissions to artists who have completed works of art, or art projects they want to pursue. Click here to get involved in an upcoming exhibition.
