Financial aid scam targeting EWC students

Posted: Updated:
A phone scam offering financial aid is targeting students at Eastern Wyoming College.
 
School officials say several students have answered a call and were told that a representative from the U.S. government was authorized to give them financial aid assistance.

They were then given a "confirmation code" and either told to call another number with the code or told to respond to an e-mail with the code to receive the funds.

In one case -- one student was told they would receive nearly $9,200 in funds.
 
School officials says they want to remind students that all financial application processes are handled through the school.
