Caution! Never give out personal information over the phone

Lately many students are called and asked for their citizen service number. Someone is pretending to be an employee of the municipality of Maastricht.

The person on the phone says that something has gone wrong with the BSN number and asks the student to give that information.

The municipality will never contact you by telephone to pass on personal details. It seems that criminals are trying to discover personal data. So please pay attention yourself. This type of scam is unfortunately more common.

Have you been approached by someone and are you in doubt? Then contact the municipality yourself.
