Student Loan scam email

28 September 2011

Some students may have received an email which was supposedly sent from the Student Loans Company, or Student Finance England, requesting updated profile information in order not to delay the processing of the next fees and maintenance grant.

This email was not sent from the Student Loans Company, but is a scam being perpetuated by fraudsters attempting to steal usernames and passwords.

Students are strongly advised not to respond to the email or act on any instructions contained therein but delete the email immediately.

The Student Loans Company have also issued a warning on their website, which can be found at

If anyone has responded to the email, please contact the FixIT Centre immediately on 0207 915 5488 or report it online at
