Beware of hoax phone calls, emails and Facebook offersBeware of hoax phone calls, emails and Facebook offers

During the last few weeks, students have been targeted by various scams. We have been alerted to the following:

Home Office scam: Calls/texts to mobile phones – caller pretends they are from the Home Office and tells the student that there is a problem with their visa and to solve it they must make an additional payment or face an “immigration fine”.  The caller gives a link to the student which verifies a Home Office number, students are then asked for their credit card details.

Job opportunities/offers: Email offering international students attractive jobs.  Students are asked to register before given access to the job details, credit card details are taken.

Supermarket vouchers: Via Facebook, students are offered supermarket food vouchers and are asked to  provide their mobile numbers.  Once they provide their numbers and accept a code they are charged £4.50 a week for the service.

Please do not respond to any of these phone calls, emails or Facebook offers.
