Announcements & Information
From the 4th to the 8th February 2019, NASMA will be running its annual National Student Money Week Campaign (NSMW19). The theme this year is 'Breaking Bad Money Habits'.
We at Money@CampusLife have put our own spin on the campaign by focussing on Scams - Spot them & STOP them! Figures show that scammers have stolen more than £500m from UK bank customers in the first half of 2018. So we all need to break the habit of our laissez-faire attitudes to sharing information and making purchases.
Money@CampusLife has information events on Singleton in Taliesin Create on 12th February and on Bay in the Great Hall Atrium 14th February to coincide with the launch of our new Scams webpage - keeping you updated and informed of fraudster's tricks.
Let's be more shrewd to the scammers by spotting them and stopping them!
