Students are being reminded to be cautious after reports of a serious fraud scam targeting international students.
The scam, which has targeted students at the University of Liverpool, aims to convince victims that their debit or credit card has been used to commit serious fraud, and large payments are requested.
If you are contacted and any of these points feel relevant, end the call immediately. Do not give any personal details to the caller to do not make any payments to them.
You will then need to contact the International Advice and Guidance Team who will support you to contact the British Police through ACTION FRAUD. You can also contact ACTION FRAUD directly on 0300 123 2040.
If you have been told not to contact anyone, please be assured that our International Advice and Guidance team operate confidentially.
