International employees at the University of Groningen have been targeted by phone scammers.
This has been an ongoing issue, and was highlighted earlier this month in an article by Traci White on The Northern Times.
It is scary to be threatened with arrest and deportation, but remember, NO official Dutch government body will demand payment direct over the phone. If you receive such contact, do not pay any deposit or fine. You can seek further information and advise via the Connect, IWCN or via the University of Groningen
Please be vigilant!
