    A couple of folks in the main Student Finance Support section, have recently posted questions about a letter apparently sent by Student Finance. This asks the recipient to send their bank details. However, I'm worried that this is a phishing scam by fraudsters.

    As far as I know, all bank account details are input by the student on the application system and no written info is required. Also, SF know that those with conditional offers (presumably the majority) will not have student bank accounts until their uni places are confirmed after results day - it makes no sense for SF to be asking students to send bank account details as most won't have them yet.

    Please can you confirm whether SF ever wtite to students asking them to send in bank account information? Or is SF aware of such a phishing scam?
