Fraud advisory

Well organized fraudsters are running a scam using social media and word-of-mouth primarily targeting international students at U.S. colleges and universities. Discounts are offered on school tuition if the victim makes a tuition payment via the fraudsters. Victims are subsequently asked to provide their credentials to the school's online tuition payment portal in order for fraudsters to make a payment on their behalf. The victim transmits funds to reimburse the fraudsters, only to find out that the tuition payment was made with stolen credit card information, which results in a chargeback of the fraudulent card payment. This scheme has resulted in students unable to pay tuition while left with little recourse in recovering their funds.
