Scam Alert - Please Read

Posted on 22/08/2011

It has been brought to our attention that an individual calling himself ‘Professor Smith Allcott’ has been falsely using Royal Holloway’s name as part of a scam to invite academics to speak at a seminar at the College on 23 August 2011.

The recipients are asked to pay around £950 for a UK work permit and to email a scanned passport copy.

We have notified the police and urge anyone who receives any email or correspondence of this nature not to respond.

To report this scam please contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
