Student loan fraudsters target vulnerable people and in my professional opinion should be given tough sentencing for this crime

According to the BBC News report by Joe Kent dated 5 August 2013: Criminal gangs target Student Loans Company, more than £6.5m of tax payers’ money was paid out on fraudulent student loan applications. The fraudsters provide false exam certificates to applicants who then apply for university courses and student loans. The gang would charge £1000 for the certificates and also took a cut from the loan payments. Another method used to scam unsuspecting students would be to pose as their student loan company in an email asking them to update their details. The link would appear to be going to the official website but it would, in fact, take them to a website controlled by fraudster who would take their money.
