Some LSU campus McDonald's fraud refunds online
BATON ROUGE - State Treasurer John Kennedy says 3,900 former Louisiana State University students can get refunds online for money lost to employee fraud at a McDonald's on campus.
He says LSU asked his department to help return the money to alumni and former students.
Campus police said in March that workers at the restaurant overcharged students' university-issued debit cards by more than $31,000 over the past year.
LSU is reimbursing current students for money lost in the scheme. It has turned over the names of alumni and former students to the state treasury to handle refunds. Kennedy said Wednesday their names and information have been added to the state's unclaimed property database.
People can search the database at www.LATreasury.com or call toll-free 1-888-925-4127 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
