Information: increased fraud risk during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

We have received correspondence from our partners at the ESFA, who have asked us to alert our student and parent community to a potential risk:

Periods of instability, such as during the coronavirus pandemic, bring an increased risk of fraud. Fraudsters will actively exploit these difficult times and will target vulnerable areas for financial gain.

We have been informed by our partners at the ESFA that some learners and parents have received a letter from them asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. The ESFA never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.

The Yeovil college community has not experienced this and we have zero reports of this happening to any of our learners, so let’s work hard to keep it this way.
