As the new academic year begins, scammers are looking to take advantage of students that want to secure their seat at a tertiary institution.

The University of South Africa (Unisa) is warning prospective students and members of the public to beware of scammers claiming to be the university or associated with the university.

Unisa says they are aware of a number of companies and social media pages advertising the university's information. These companies and social media pages are also offering to assist Unisa students with challenges they may face.

The University explained, “In the process, companies either solicit money fraudulently from students or make money through online advertising with no benefit to students”.

Unisa is urging its students to only make use of the university's official social media pages and websites. This as the fraudulent sites could give you false information which could be harmful to your studies.

Here’s a list of Unisa’s official social media pages:

Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UniversityOfSouthAfrica

Twitter -  https://twitter.com/unisa

LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/unisa

Here is Unisa’s official website domain name.

Website - www.unisa.ac.za or https://my.unisa.ac.za

‘Unisa is in the process of handing over the names of the companies who try to mislead students to our Legal Department’ said the university.
