Be Wary of Potential Identity Fraud

Posted on: 30 April 2020

We have been notified that a number of college students have been contacted via social media (mainly via Snapchat) encouraging them to make claims for Universal Credit. Job Centre Plus have advised us that criminals do use this method of communication and are concerned that young people may be drawn into revealing personal information, which may be used by a third party to defraud/scam.

Please be careful and extra vigilant. We will never contact you to encourage you to apply for Universal Credit or ask for your financial account details.
