**Important notice 15/08/2017**
It has been reported that there has been an attempt to re-direct students paying Tuition fees to a false bank account. Please take extra caution when making payments to Imperial College.
Below are a few things to be aware of BEFORE making any payment.
- Any emails / invoices regarding Tuition fees will come from our firstname.lastname@example.org email address only, emails relating to applications to pay fees in instalments will come from email@example.com only.
- The College bank details are attached to the PDF Tuition fee invoice, funds should ONLY be paid to the account shown on the invoice which will match that shown on our How to Pay page.
If you are unsure of the content of an email, you can verify any email with us by forwarding it to our email address (do not reply to a suspicious email, always forward it to allow you to enter the address yourself) or by calling us on our phone number shown in the Contact us section of this site. If you have any concerns or believe you may have been a victim of a scam email, please contact a member of the Student Fees team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are a few pointers with regards to detecting Scams and malware.
Avoiding scams and malware
Email-distributed malware are emails that contain rogue attachments. The attachments could have software that intercepts your keystrokes, may attempt to steal banking information or mean that your computer can be controlled remotely by criminals.
Tips to avoid being scammed
If in doubt, do not click
A simple rule is: do not click on any links that you're not sure about. Think about whether the person or organisation the email appears to be from is likely to ask for this information. Phishing emails sometimes pretend to be from your bank or may ask you for your username and password for certain websites, like PayPal. If it looks too good to be true, it usually is, so if you receive an unsolicited email to notify that you have won the lottery or inherited vast sums of money, it is almost certainly a scam.
We will never ask you to provide your password either in person or via email.
Check the email carefully
While phishing scams are becoming more sophisticated, there can often be signs that something is wrong in the email. Are there spelling mistakes? Does the wording have a different tone of voice to other communications you have received from that person or organisation?
Emails from the College will not use unusual emphasis or threaten dire immediate consequences (for example the use of capitalisation to emphasis a point or threatening that your account will be immediately suspended).
Check the website address
If you are considering following a link, check the website address carefully. Is it what you would expect? Be wary of following any link in an email that takes you to a login screen. These can be convincing but may not be genuine. Use your cursor to hover over the link to see if it actually redirects to a different website address than stated.
Report anything suspicious
If it looks suspicious, even if you know the source, do not open or click on any links. Report the email to the ICT Security team by attaching the suspicious email to an ASK request
