Free School Meal Scam

Urgent: Some schools have 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 fake links for the parents to follow if they want to receive this funding.

Concerned residents or anybody with information about coronavirus-related scams are being asked to email trading.standards@bucksandsurreytradingstandards.gov.uk (preferable) or by phone on 01296 388788.
