The Anonymous Widower

Six Arrests in Phishing Scam

I was pleased to see this article on the BBC web site.

I suspect it might have been the result of one of the two phishing scams aimed at students, that I flagged up earlier in the year.

  1. Student Finance Agreement
  2. Academic Year 2011/12 Payment Access Review Alart

Both were fairly well designed scams and the success, shows how people are vulnerable, when they are embarking on a new phase in their life.

The perpetrators were caught this time, and hopefully new students will be more careful next year.
