Beware of scam emails

16/03/2021
Remember to use caution when you receive an email from an unknown source.

It’s come to our attention that there has recently been an increase in spam emails being sent to Middlesex students. The most pertinent being around a 2020/21 Yearbook scam, this isn’t sent from Middlesex University so please ignore it.

If you receive an email that appears to be from the University, or has some connection with Middlesex, but is not something you’re expecting, please treat the communication with caution. If you’re unsure whether you can trust the email, please check with Middlesex staff.

Reporting suspicious messages

The message might be from a company you don’t normally receive communications from, or someone you do not know. You may just have a hunch. If you are suspicious, you should report it. By doing so you'll be helping to protect many more people from being affected.

If you have received an email which you’re not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) at report@phishing.gov.uk.

Remember to use caution when you receive an email from an unknown source. Only trust emails that you know to be from Middlesex university, and when in doubt double-check.
