FSM Voucher Fraud Warning

26 March 2020 (by jgathercole)

We are currently exploring the best way to provide those in receipt of Free School Meals with vouchers. We will NEVER ask you for your bank details, please wait for us to contact you directly. Click on the title for further info on the suspected fraud.

Some schools have already reported that parents and carers of children in receipt of free school meals are being targeted by fraudsters. Fraudsters are targeting families, emailing parents and carers with messages such as ‘ If your child is entitled to free school meals send your bank details to the school and they will help with funding while the school is closed’. The email contains links for the parents to follow if they want to receive the this funding – these links are fake. This is a scam.
