A fake email is going round asking for students’ bank details

The email is a scam and should not be responded to


Manchester uni students have been sent an email to their uni accounts requesting they provide their bank details.

The email is a scam and students are advised to refrain from responding to it.

The sender’s email address is [email protected], but it can be confusing as the name appears as University of Manchester.
