NFIB Alert - Phishing Scam Targeting University Students

On behalf of the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, please find attached information relating to a Phishing Campaign:
 
The phishing campaign, which was last highlighted in May 2016, has reappeared yet again. It claims the student has been awarded an educational grant as part of a student support programme. The email purports to have come from the Finance Department of the student’s university. It tricks the recipient into clicking on a hyperlink contained in the message to provide personal details on a webpage.
Victims report that after submitting their sensitive information (including name, address, date of birth, bank account details, National Insurance Number and mother’s maiden name), they were taken to a spoofed website which appeared to be a genuine representative of their online bank, where they were directed to type in their online banking credentials.
