Fraudsters and Free School Meals
We have received notification from another Local Authority 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 to claim this funding – these links are fake and this is a
scam. If anyone receives an email like this it should be deleted immediately.
