Be On Guard Against Scams Targeting International Students!

Please be on guard against fraudulent phone calls or messages from scammers pretending to represent U.S. government agencies such as SEVP, ICE or the IRS. Scammers may threaten deportation or other legal consequences if students do not provide money or personal information. You should never provide personal information, such as: immigration records, social security number, bank account or credit card number to anyone you don't know.

Refusing to give information or send money over the phone will never cause you to lose your legal status in the United States. No government agency will ever call and demand money or conduct business in this fashion.

If you believe you have been a victim of such a scam, please file a police report immediately and contact ISSS if you have questions. We also recommend reviewing this information from Department of Homeland Security about avoiding scams and how to report a call from a scammer
