We've been made aware of a scam email in circulation from uniyearbook. The company claims to provide a University yearbook for all UAL students.
This company is not affiliated with the University and the final yearbook has no relationship with UAL. It features students from universities across the world, who are not necessarily UAL graduates.
What does the email look like?
The sender is appearing as firstname.lastname@example.org or similar.
Uniyearbook asks students for payment upfront, but does not deliver the yearbook until several months later. This makes it very difficult to claim the money back once the recipient realises the yearbook is fraudulent, due to the time elapsed between purchase and delivery. The website also requires you to share your personal contact information.
Please remain vigilant and do not make payments or give your personal details to this company or that of a similar appearance.
