Parents Beware Email Scam

Please be aware that there has been an incidence of a scam email which appeared to be from a private school in Perth this week. A Scotch College parent received a fake email, which appeared to be from a staff member advising that College fees were now to be sent to a new bank account. This information was incorrect and typical of a ‘false billing scam’. The staff member whose name appeared on the email was completely innocent and uninvolved in the scam.

Scotch College said that the email looked genuine. Consequently, we advise that Santa Maria College has no intention of changing bank account details in the foreseeable future. If changes were made, you would be notified by post. If you receive an email from us that looks in any way suspicious, please contact us immediately.
