Imagine if you woke up and found a letter on your door step saying you would soon have to move out of your home. That was the scare several Waco residents got Saturday morning after someone pulled a hoax on them.

Homeowners who live around the Baylor University campus found a flier under their doormats or on their cars.

It said that Baylor University and the City of Waco would start work on a new football stadium next year right where their homes currently stand.

It also cited what appeared to be state law that would give the school the right to buy the property.

More than 200 letters were found around the neighborhoods.

"It makes me angry, it really does. I think something needs to be done about it. The city of Waco's name is attached to it," says Kelvin Williams with the Baylor Neighborhood Association.

Both Baylor and the City of Waco say no such plans are underway.

The Baylor Police Department collected most of the fliers and is investigating.
