Phishing emails warning
Please be aware that there have been reports of fraudsters sending ‘phishing’ emails to students in order to access online student accounts and change student’s bank details in order to take money.
Please note: If students give their logon and password details to anyone these people can use this information to change the bank details on the student's student support account and then all SLC grant, loan and BSU bursary payments will be re-routed to the fraudster's account and the student will receive nothing.
What to look out for:
The SLC NEVER asks students to confirm login and password details so any email that they receive asking them to confirm this information is bogus.
What to do if you receive a bogus email
The best thing to do if you receive one of these emails is to forward it to email@example.com The SLC will locate the bogus website and get it taken down. Therefore students can protect both themselves and other more vulnerable students by merely forwarding all phishing emails.
If students think that they have been caught by one of these attacks they must report it to the SLC immediately. Students are most likely to be targeted in the weeks leading up to a grant and loan payment date so they must be especially vigilant at this time.
