Online/Telephone Scam Alert

The JCU team has been made aware of some alumni of another Australian University being asked to disclose their credit card details over the phone by someone claiming to represent that University.

JCU would only request credit card details via a secure payment mechanism accompanied by a legitimate JCU invoice.

As a JCU alumnus, you would only be contacted and asked for any personal, business or credit card details over the phone as a response to an inquiry personally made by you to the University.

Further, JCU does not charge for "lifetime Alumni registration" and membership of our overarching Alumni Network is free worldwide.  You can always check on the name of any person purporting to be a staff member here: and just type the name in the search box.

If you believe you have been contacted by somebody who claims to represent JCU but does not seem legitimate, please send us an email to let us know alternatively, you can phone the Alumni Relations Office on +61 7 47814303.
