Fraudsters scam gap year parents

23rd August 2010

The parents of those away on gap years are being warned to watch out for a scam where hackers log-in to their child’s emails and send desperate emails asking for money.

The parents are led to believe that their son or daughter is being detained in jail for a crime they didn’t commit. They are told that if money is wired over to them, they will be released.

Be wary of strange emails
