Hoax Email 20th November

Over the weekend, it appears a number of students have received a scam email titled “Your student grant information”, asking students to visit a page which requested a significant amount of personal information.

This email appears to have come from a compromised IT account at Keele University, and asks for a  number of personal details, including personally identifiable information, bank account numbers and debit card numbers. It has been blocked from the University network, but if you read it over the weekend and did submit your details, please contact your bank as soon as possible.
