On Wednesday the 25th of September, a student was approached outside Santander Bank by someone claiming to be from the accommodation office at Brunel.

 

The student was told that he could get a better deal on his flat and after being taken to the Metro Bank, he gave the scammer £1,000 in cash. 

 

Brunel University staff will never approach you with a "better offer on accommodation" and will certainly never take you to a bank to request money in cash with no paper trail.
