ESFA Communication – Fraud Alert
Surrey County Council has received the following update from the ESFA:
“We have been informed some learners and parents have received a letter from ESFA asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. We never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond. Where possible, it would be helpful for institutions to share this message with parents and students through your communication channels.”
