PhD Scam Circulating

The University has been advised by the Police that a scam is circulating.

This scam is from a person/s purporting to be a University PHD student and is asking members of the public to assist with their research. It suggests the current COVID-19 pandemic has meant they are under pressure to spend the funding. Victims are then asked to send a deposit amount to be part of the PHD research process.

We have no further information about specific locations for this scam, but we wanted you to be aware. 

If you are in any doubt about a mailing you think is from Loughborough please do not hesitate to drop us an email to check.
