UC is aware of a scam email being sent to UC student email addresses that promotes writing services, assignment counselling and quiz coaching. The email is being sent from ‘HCB Business Counselling Center,’ has the subject line ‘HCB Business Counselling Center Solves Your Problems!’ and includes an image with the UC logo on it. UC is not in any way associated with this communication – this email is a scam.
If you receive any suspicious emails offering writing services, please contact the IT Service Desk in the Central Library (Puaka-James Hight building, Level 2).
Academic integrity is one of the cornerstones of being a good student, and breaching academic integrity can lead to serious consequences. For more information read Academic Integrity Guidance for Staff and Students and the Student Code of Conduct.
