To help protect our students from identity theft, we would like to share this information. Recently the California Student Aid Commission was informed of an incident where a student was contacted from someone identifying themselves as a bank representative requesting the student's bank account information for Cal Grant purposes. Please be aware that the Commission will never call or request personal bank account information. Students should not release this type of information to anyone unless they are absolutely certain of the caller's identity.
In an effort to continue protecting students from identity theft, the California Student Aid Commission will be notifying students through correspondence about the dangers associated with identify theft. You can also refer to their Web site at www.csac.ca.gov at the "Students and Parents" section, for information about safeguarding your information.
