Scams and frauds

Students, especially international students, are particularly vulnerable of falling victim to fraudsters when paying their university fees. Online and telephone financial fraud is on the rise and often, fraudsters will offer significant discounts, incentives, or attractive exchange rates to encourage students to use these methods of payments. Please remember that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. The 兔子先生 does not offer any incentives for payment via a third party.

Tuition and accommodation fees should always be paid directly to the 兔子先生, preferably through SITS applicant view or student view. Students should never give their log in details to anyone else, especially if that person is offering to pay fees on their behalf. The most common scams to look out for include: 

  • Fee payment scams: This is where an external third-party agent claims to make a payment on the student鈥檚 behalf. Students can also be approached by a fraudster and/or another student either in person or via social media. They will offer to provide help to pay tuition fees. The fraudster will pay the tuition fee using stolen bank or, debit/credit card details. However, when the genuine cardholder reports this, the funds are recalled leaving the tuition fee unpaid. 
  • Another example includes where the fraudster will appear to have made a successful payment by sending you a copy of the receipt showing the full payment made. In reality, all they have done is made a successful 拢1 payment using a stolen debit/credit card and then altered the receipt to make it seem like they have paid the tuition fees in full. 
  • Money muling: the 鈥榤oney mule鈥 trap involves students being offered payment in exchange for receiving money temporarily into their bank account. Students will then be asked to withdraw the cash or to transfer it on to another account. This type of scam is on the increase, targeting students who are short of cash and who may be tempted by offers to make 鈥榚asy money鈥 on job search or social media websites.

Losing money on tuition fees can have serious consequences. Money Laundering is a serious criminal offence and if the University is informed of, or suspects, fraudulent payment activity, it will take appropriate action in accordance with its Anti Money Laundering Policy. In circumstances of payment fraud, be it wittingly, or unwittingly, the University reserves the right to reject an application, withdraw a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) or de-register a student from the course without further recourse from the student. 

Advice for students:

  • Be mindful of ongoing scams,
  • Always use the University鈥檚 approved payment routes www.port.ac.uk/about-us/ways-to-pay,
  • Ask for a number to call back. Usually, a fraudster will never give out their details. Do not share anything over the phone. Do not share your bank account, credit or debit card details, with anyone. Your bank will never ask for full details over the phone, like the PIN, neither will the University. 
  • Do not share your University login details with anyone, especially on social media with strangers or any third-party agent.
  • If in doubt, or if you have any questions about payment options, contact our friendly Income team directly by email at any time via income@port.ac.uk, or by calling +44 (0) 23 9284 5533 Monday to Thursday between 10:00 and 4:00pm or Fridays between 10:00am and 3:00pm. 
  • Be cautious of offers of easy money or discounts. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The University doesn鈥檛 offer discounts on tuition fees. Beware of favourable exchange rates provided by unsolicited agents.
  • Do not feel pressurised to transfer the money to an unknown individual.

For further guidance please see the鈥.

If you or your appointed third party is found to have made a fake/fraudulent payment, the University will hold you responsible and take disciplinary actions against you which may result in your immediate de-registration from the course. We strongly advise that payments on your account are either made by yourself or an immediate trust-worthy member of family and not by an unknown third party. The University is not responsible for any financial loss to any student as a result of fraudulent activity
