Warning on scams affecting parents and students


A serious scam that aims at international school parents and students is now active in Ho Chi Minh City.

In which fraudsters calling on behalf of homeroom teachers, staff and faculty, and medical offices notify parents about kids' urgent health conditions, such as falls, accidents, etc., that are being handled in hospitals. When parents know about their child's accident and injury, fraudsters take advantage of their fear and confusion to urge for money transfer so that their child can undergo surgery or be admitted to the hospital.

The school is reminding parents of its family communication procedure in an effort to assist parents in helping parents to be more aware of scams in general.

Through education department, homeroom teachers, or the school's SMS, the school always keeps parents updated about the learning environment and the health of students. If parents receive any information that does not come from the phone numbers provided by the school, please contact the school again to verify the details.
