Attention! Fraudulent messages on Facebook and Instagram

We have identified fraudulent messages on Facebook and Instagram promising official and certified online university courses on behalf of the University of Bologna. These messages are not associated with the University of Bologna in any way.

The messages, fake and deceptive, come from the profiles "Owen Wilhelmina" and "Online service" and others who are abusing our registered trademark "ALMA MATER STUDIORUM A.D. 1088 UNIVERSITY OF BOLOGNA®".

The incident has been reported to AGCM - and to AGCOM for the protection of consumer interests.

We invite you to consult the list of official university social media channels.
