Check out our top tips to avoid being scammed by accommodation payment fraudsters.
Please be aware of an accommodation scam targeting international students.
This scam can look legitimate, and you may even be sent a receipt. However, the payments don't actually reach the accommodation provider properly and so you can lose the money you've paid.
If you think you may have been targeted by fraud in any capacity, please report it to the police on 101 or via Action Fraud.
