Be Careful of Fraud Rings!!! Recently, we received reports from our students who were deceived by fraud ringsand caused them to lose lots of money. We would like to alert every student of these incidents.
DO NOT give any information to someone whom you do not know or to any strange phone call that asks to check or asks about your account numbers, your ID number, your birthday, or the spelling of your name.
They will give a lot of excuses to ask about your personal banking information. Please remember, DO NOT just follow the directions from the strange phone number by answering their questions or process any of your banking affairs even if they said they are from government offices, your banks, or cell phone companies.
You may have two choices:
Choice 1: Hanging up the phone immediately.
Choice 2: Ask their phone numbers and check this phone number with "The Internet Fraud Complaint Center"
(The telephone is 165, you can dial directly from a cell phone, too) to make sure this phone call is not from fraud rings.
