There’s a scam government grant email going around Sussex

An email sent from a Loughborough Uni address is offering students a £1,829 grant

Students have received a scam email saying they have been awarded a one-off grant by the Department of Education for criteria including “moral support”.

The grant collection page asks students to enter their personal details as well as their card details to collect the grant.

Finance services have released a statement saying: “Please be aware that students are currently being targeted by a phishing e-mail purporting to be from the Finance Department in which they are being asked to provide their bank account details via a ‘Grant Information’ link.

“This is not a genuine e-mail and we ask that students do not click on the link if they receive this”

They have asked students to delete the email immediately and assured that ITS are working hard to block the emails from coming in.
