    You didn't click a link in an email and login did you? Apparently this has become widespread this year, scammers are sending out phishing emails to get your login details and then logging in themselves and changing the bank account details.

    I'm not sure what happens in this case because if it was a bank you would be covered but the student loans company isn't a bank.

    EDIT: Heres a link to the story on the BBC news website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-12972497

    My understanding though was that the name on the account has to match the name of the applicant, and the persons name cannot be changed online at the SLC.

    You seem to have got further with them.. how did u go about it?? I was meant to get mine on the 9th of may but someone changed my bank account details aswell. Phoned the investigation team on so many occasions and they keep asking for emails, even after i've told them i havent received any -_-! Have they dealt with yours yet?
