» Student Loans Company 'phishing' Scam - Beware!

IT services have been made aware of phishing emails that are targeting students.

The emails received are purporting to be from the SLC (Student Loans Company). They have a link to a fake login page asking students to enter their details.

DO NOT TRUST THESE EMAILS

We urge all students to be vigilant and report any such emails immediately to IT Customer Support who are happy to help with any queries you may have: www.southwales.ac.uk/customersupport or 01443 482882.

IT Services have produced advice for how to deal with suspected phishing emails. Phishing scams aimed at students are very common at the start of the academic year (and at the start of each term).

It’s also worth reading the guide to scams targeting students in the UK.
