Other common scams
This is when a scammer calls and uses your stolen details to try to convince you they’re from a trusted company like your bank or student loan company.
Often, they'll say your account is at risk and tell you to move your money to a different account.
Upfront fee scams
This is when a scammer asks you for upfront payments for goods or services.
They might say it’s to access your student loan, to secure a job or even to secure your student housing or a rental property.
They might reach out through social media or post a fake ad.
So what can you do?
Don't get played, press pause and remember:
One last thing. Remember the student loan company, your bank and the police will never call to tell you to move your money to another account.
