    Beware of student loan scam emails

    Students should be aware of a scam email that has been sent to some new and returning students around the UK asking for personal information

    Students should be aware of a scam email that has been sent to some new and returning students around the UK asking for personal information.

    The scam email warns students that their student loans account will be suspended if they do not complete missing information. It then links students to a fake website where it asks for personal details.

    You can find more information about this specific scam email on the Action Fraud website. You can also find tips about email safety on the Student Loan Company website.

    Here are some tips to keep your personal details safe:

    • Hover the cursor over any link embedded in the email to see if the address is valid and do not click unless certain the email is from a trusted source.
    • If the sender appears to be asking you to click a link you are uncertain about – call or email them to check before you follow the link.
    • If the email is marked as SPAM, this is because at some point it has come from a non-Middlesex email address. Any email marked with a SPAM should be considered as suspicious.
    • Please be aware, Middlesex University staff will never ask for your account passwords. If you are ever prompted to supply these details, please delete the email.

    Don’t take the bait – delete the email immediately.
