Urgent - Chinese Students

We've been made aware of Chinese students, living and studying in Scotland, being targeted in a telephone scam.  Students have been phoned by someone saying they are from the Chinese government or police and asked to transfer money online to a bank account.   Although appearing genuine, this is more than likely a fraud, and you should take the following steps to protect yourself:

  • Don't give out any personal information or credit card/ banking details over the telephone. No genuine caller will ever ask you to do this.
  • If you are in any doubt about who is calling, hang up and find the advertised contact details for that agency. Don't redial the telephone number used to call you.
  • Don't click on any attachments or links in an email or text message.

If you think you have been a victim of a telephone or online fraud you should contact your bank immediately and report it to Police Scotland on 101.

We advise that you be vaccinated for meningitis (MenACWY vaccine)  and  Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and before arrival to the UK wherever possible. 

If you are unable to get the MenACWY before travelling to the UK, this vaccine is available in the UK to new university entrants up to 25 years of age. Register with a doctor when you arrive and request the vaccination, if you have not done so before you arrive. Find out more about student health and wellbeing on myNapier​.
