Fraud Targeting Parents of Children on Free School Meals

Fraud Targeting Parents of Children on Free School Meals


Parents of children eligible for Free School Meals are being targeted by fraudsters amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Families across the country have received an email asking them to send over their bank details so that their child can still receive meals during school closures.  This is a scam the Department for Education (DfE) has issued a warning to parents to delete the email immediately.
