Fraud Advice for Parents

  • Always verify an email payment change request directly with the school, via the official, established contact details you have on file. Be alert to unexpected or notably increased fee requests
  • Be vigilant and always scrutinise requests to amend payment procedures. Check for inconsistencies and grammatical errors in external emails, such as a misspelt school name or a slightly different email address; these can be warning signs of fraud
  • Don’t be afraid to question and to verify details if being asked to make fee payments into a new bank account
