Important information: yearbook scam

Posted on 2 April 2024

We have been alerted to an email scam targeting students by asking them to buy a yearbook.

The sender is appearing as and the email subject as ‘Complete Your Yearbook account.’

The email then asks you to fill in a form with personal details including your name, mobile phone number, personal and university email address, profile picture and the degree you have achieved. 

The form also requires you to pay either a £5 or £10 fee, which the scammers then use to set up recurring payments from your account. 

If you have received this email do not click on any links in it or enter your information in the form, instead just delete the email.

This scam serves as an important reminder to refresh your knowledge on how to spot spam and phishing emails.
