Warning: New Phishing attack targeting students with email claiming to be from a ‘Debt Collectors Agency’

Location: > Fees University of Toronto > News and Events > Warning: New Phishing attack targeting students with email claiming to be from a ‘Debt Collectors Agency’


We have received a report of an email message sent to students’ utoronto.ca email addresses claiming to be from a "Debt Collectors Agency" which claims that there is Past Due amount. 

Do NOT contact the agency.

The email message includes an amount owed and requests that the student contact the agency as soon as possible to get payment instructions.

Check ACORN to view what amount you owe and your student account status to confirm if your account is currently placed at external collections. If your student account status is ‘Active’ no one outside of the University will contact you to request payment.

At this time, unpaid fees from the 2015 Fall-2016Winter session or earlier, have been transferred to our external collections agency.

If you have any questions regarding this, you can forward your inquiry to info.studentaccount@utoronto.ca.
