MSU Students’ Direct Deposits Intercepted By Scammers

Scam Computer Keys Showing Swindles And Fraud

Officials at MSU Mankato are investigating a cyber scam aimed at students at the college.

University Security and ITS Information Security were informed Monday that several students had received emails indicating that they should log into their StarID accounts to keep them from being deactivated.

The emails provided a link to a non-University website, which was used to steal their usernames and passwords. The scammers who got the stolen information then changed the direct deposit information in E-services, thereby intercepting direct deposits meant for students

University officials are now following up with other possible victims.
