Beware of Scam Emails Claiming to be from the Student Loans Company

September 8, 2017

The Student Loans Company has asked us to relay this information to students.

Phishing is a fraudulent activity designed to trick you in to giving out your login details. Fraudsters can then use this information to log in to your account and steal information

Identifying a phishing email
•Be suspicious of any requests for personal or financial information. The SLC will never ask you to confirm your bank details or login information by email.
•'Dear Student’ – phishing emails are usually sent out in bulk and therefore are unlikely to contain your first name or surname
•Check the quality of the communication. Misspelling, poor punctuation and bad grammar are often tell-tale signs of phishing.
•'Failure to respond in 24 hours will result in your account being closed’ these types of messages are designed to convey a sense of urgency to prompt a quick response.
•You should also be aware of suspicious text messages asking you to click a link or confirm information about yourself. The text messages sent by SLC are to give information only.
