中国留学生:请留意微信平台上的诈骗

11 October 2018
我们近期获知有很多在英读书的中国同学被骗,成为诈骗分子的下手对象,造成一定的经济损失。
 
这类诈骗很多是通过微信和电话的形式进行。诈骗分子谎称为银行职员,大使馆工作人员,警察或者其他官方中介机构,让学生降低心里防线,要求学生转账付款,有时候还会给予优惠的换汇汇率。
 
请大家谨记,任何人向你索要个人信息,比如家庭地址、银行账户信息,都不要相信。如果认为可疑或者发现类似骗局,请立刻联系大学的国际学生服务部,或者登录Action Fraud网站:https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/并进行report。
 
Many thanks to Fang Zheng, International Student Adviser at the University of Sheffield, for translating.

Chinese students: beware of WeChat scam

We’ve been made aware that a number of students across UK universities have been targeted by fraudsters and have lost large sums of money. 

This scam is targeting Chinese students and involves WeChat and mobile contacts. Students are contacted on their mobile phone by people claiming to represent their bank, the embassy, police or other reputable agency and are told they owe funds immediately, often being offered preferential exchange rates on currency conversions.

Please do not give any payments or personal information from unsolicited calls. If you think you may have been targeted by this scam please contact your university’s international office or report it to Action Fraud.)
