A popular scam is now involving an email that’s sent to students, demanding they pay tuition money they owe, immediately.
Scammers then threaten students, saying they’ll be dropped from their classes, if they don’t pay.
Another scam, fake sites, selling cheap textbooks. So,make sure you’re buying them from a legit company.
And another one going around, fake online back-to school coupons and gift cards.
Clicking on those links could download malware on your laptop or computer.
“I think if you just keep your eyes out make sure it’s from official sources then you should be fine,” said MSU student Jacob Lizotte.
“If it’s not from Minot State even if you don’t know call Minot state and ask them they’ll tell you if it’s from them or not and if it’s not just delete it, ignore it, block it if you can,” said MSU student Sam Wise.
