Be on guard against fee payment scams: here’s what to look out for

We have recently received reports of students, particularly international students, being the victim of a fee payment scam in which they have paid their fees to a third party or agent, rather than directly to Deakin.

These scams are designed to take your money in a dishonest way, leaving your university fees unpaid.

All valid payment options are displayed on your official student invoice, so make sure you only ever use these methods to pay your fees.

Things to look out for:

If you think you may have fallen for this kind of scam, please contact Student Central for advice.

Online scams are very common

Please be wary of any unsolicited or unexpected communications you receive and think before you click in emails – these scams can be sophisticated and look legitimate.
