Scam calls targeting FIT Students

What happened? 
We received multiple reports of scam phone calls that are targeting FIT students. These calls are from suspicious individuals pretending to be FIT employees asking the student to verify the last four digits of the social security number and to “go over their student file.”  

What should you do?
If you received a phone call like the one described above please contact us by opening a ticket at
