SCAM ALERT: Illegal Discounted Payment Offers Using Stolen Credit Cards

Dear Parents & Carers,

Please be aware of a current scam where criminals are contacting households claiming to be able to pay off your various bills at a discounted rate.

They request that you send them your invoices, and in return, they will pay the total fees on your behalf – and then request you pay them back some lesser amount.

This is a scam, because the operators are actually paying these amounts using stolen credit cards, which are eventually declined by the bank upon receipt.

One family’s Canterbury College fees payment has just been caught up in this trap and their payment rejected, so we are sending this community message to avoid other parents and carers getting caught out.

So please be aware and alert to this scam, and only deal with the original supplier only – such as Canterbury College Ltd.

For any payment queries, please contact our Finance Dept – T: 07 3299 0807 | E: 

Thank you!
