We have recently learned of a phishing scam which appears to target students specifically
Phishing refers to an email that attempts to fraudulently acquire personal information, such as, password and/or account information. On the surface, these emails may appear to be legitimate and some are presented as being from a University or the Department for Education.
However these emails are fraudulent and students should notify the Student Loans Company of any concerns relating to a suspicious communication.
Please be vigilant and emails suspected to be fraudulent can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact their Counter Fraud Services team:
