Beware of Student Scams

WHAT IS HAPPENING?
Chinese students are being approached in person and via
WeChat by individuals offering to pay their university
tuition fees for them at a reduced rate if they use a ‘third party
facilitator’.
For example students are being “befriended” in
London Chinatown and referred to WeChat groups.

To help prevent these scams the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit has produced an information booklet to let people know what to look out for and who to contact if you are suspicious. Click here to read or download the booklet.
