Students at UK Universities are being targeted during the start of term.

- These emails will appear to come from the University’s Finance Department;

- The email subject will be along the lines of “You have been awarded student grant”;

- A link in the email will take you to a University branded web page asking for personal details or a banking site asking for account details.
