    The student loans company...or is it ?

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 13 Sep 2017, 10:41 am

    Rise in reports of student loan scam email

    First-year and returning university students warned of a phishing scam that claims to be from the student loan provider.

    [*]Fraudsters are believed to be targeting victims as they prepare to start their new academic year

    [*]Victims are duped into giving up personal information that is used to steal their identity and defraud them.

    [*]The Student Loans Company has confirmed that the email is not genuine.

    [*]The fraudulent email has come to light over the last two weeks in the lead up to the new academic year and claims that Student Loans Company accounts have been suspended due to incomplete student information.

    Get the full story from Action Fraud HERE




    Although I have covered this scam before, I feel that it is good to cover it again as there are always new students coming up that will not know about this scam.

    "To be forewarned is to be forearmed" they say.

    My niece had problems with this scam and after she told me about it I had a look at it.

    I think the best way to avoid this scam is by going to the correct web-address and do what you need to do including getting the confirmation that the company that cold-contacted you really is The Students Loan Company or not.

    As another tip here is the correct address for the Students Loan Company :

    Yes, thanks from me too as there are many youngsters, especially in England that will be needing the Students Loans Company in the future.

    It's a shame that unlike in Scotland the students still have to pay tuition fees here in England.

    Yes, it certainly is Angie; as keeping the tuition fees down south only puts the pressure on the poorest of the young people trying to get a decent education.

    The rich ones can pay these fees without any trouble.

    But then again, is that not just typical of The Tories ?

    Of course it is.

    The Tories need to hold on to their rich supporters, and that is why they keep pandering to them.

    I honestly cannot understand why ordinary people vote for these chancers.

    According to the result of the snap election recently, the Tories, and Theresa May, have less than a poor chance of winning the next general election.

    With Jeremy Corbyn's supporters growing apace, if the Labour party don't do anything in the meantime to upset their core voters there is a good chance that labour will be elected to government in the next general election. 

    Of course, that will also mean that Corbyn will be the next Prime Minister.
