The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) says tips-offs received by students have led to the arrests of three of its employees on fraud allegations.

They were arrested yesterday at the scheme's head office in Wynberg.

They allegedly diverted student allowances to


their personal accounts.

NSFAS says it is also aware that people are posing as NSFAS officials and soliciting money from hopeful applicants.

NSFAS Adminstrator, Randall Carolissen: "This is a result of a tip...-off we received from students who have noticed unusual and suspicious activities on their student accounts.

We have handed over all the evidence that we have gathered to the SA police to assure and reassure the public that the arrests of the three employees will not have any negative


impact on the 2020 applications cycle which is expected to close successfully on the 30th of November."
