Scam targeting Chinese students

Please be aware of scammers targeting Chinese students

The University has been made aware of a number of scams, particularly targeted at Chinese students.

What happens?

Scammers contact students claiming to represent the police or other official body from student’s home country.

They tell students they are suspected of a money laundering crime.

They ask for money and tell not to alert the British police.

What should I do if I’m affected?

Contact the police in the first instance. Call 101 or report to the police station. The nearest police station is at Partick - 609-611 Dumbarton Rd, Glasgow G11 6HY.

If you need support in reporting the crime, get in touch with Campus Security on +44 (0) 141 330 4444 (ext. 4444) and one of our Security Officers will go along with you to the police station.

You can also contact our International Student Support team and the Confucius Centre for guidance and support.
