Harpoon the phishermen

Have your say

UPDATE your student loan account!

Actually, don’t. Because it’s a scam. A phishing email takes the unsuspecting clicker to an official-looking website where a lot of personal questions are asked.

But the Student Loans Company says it will never:

Ask to update your bank or account details or update your date of birth.

Ask you to click a link. Always type the address yourself: www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance.

Give you a choice of secret question.
