Phishing emails

It has been brought to our attention that a number of students have received emails that were supposedly from the Student Loans Company requesting confirmation of bank account details in order to receive SLC loan and grant payments.

Please be aware that neither the SLC or Liverpool Hope University would ever send emails requesting personal bank account information and if you receive an email like this you should immediately delete it; however real it may look.

You should always be on your guard not to reply to any communications like this but particularly during SLC payment points when these emails are received more often.

If you have responded to a phishing email you should change your account password and forward the email to the Student Loans Company security team at phishing@slc.co.uk.
