How can I protect myself from Covid-19 Scams?

Fears of Covid-19 are being used by criminals and hackers to prey on members of the public.

University staff and students are urged to:

  • Remain vigilant towards emails and telephone calls.
  • Be aware of email scams that may attempt to trick individuals into opening attachments or opening web sites that may risk personal or University information, passwords, contacts, and bank details. These may include fake online resources about the virus, refunds, counterfeit goods, donations, and loans.
