The latest scam that is going around is “Free College Grant for Students!”. It informs the recipient that he or she is approved for a grant and should click on the link provided to complete an application. The email appears to have been sent from a Penn State email account.

DO NOT CLICK on any links in the email or provide any personal information in response to it. These links generally mimic legitimate sites and are used for identity theft/fraud.
