Be aware of scams and phishing
Students are often targeted with phishing e-mails around student finance payment dates (the next date being 28th April)
Students should ignore messages that tell them to ‘validate their account’or provide any personal, security or banking details. SFE, SLC, Student Finance Wales and SAAS will never request for students to provide or confirm their information in this way.
Practical guidance for students and top tips on how they can safeguard their funds is available at http://www.slc.co.uk/students/online-safety.aspx. Further instructions are also provided if a student believes they have received any communication that is suspicious, or are concerned about the safety of their account. If they have responded to a phishing e-mail, they must change their account password and forward the phishing e-mail to our Security team at Phishing@slc.co.uk
