[Caution!] Be careful of phone calls from private tutors posing as "OU students"


Recently Osaka University has received numerous complaints concerning persons, persons posing as Osaka University students or actual Osaka University students, making phone calls, and offering their services as private tutors.

Osaka University will never solicit services as a university to private households by telephone, so we urge you not to respond to these kinds of suspicious telephone calls.

*OU students hoping to work as private tutors need to register with Osaka University Co-op and get referrals for private tutoring.

If you do encounter any kind of persistent telephone solicitation, please consult with the National Consumer Affairs Center of Japan.
