Banking Industry Scam

Beckfoot School have been contacted by Santander Bank about a scam targeting students. This is a bank industry wide scam, involving ‘friends’ or ‘friends of friends’ asking students for their bank account details to put money in, claiming they do not have a bank account of their own. The money they are putting in to the student’s accounts, is fraudulent, which will then go on their credit file for life, affecting things such as mortgages and loans. Please take this information seriously and do not give out any bank account details.
