On September 13, 2016, USCIS posted on its blog, The Beacon, that a current scam is targeting immigrants. Basically someone will call and state represent himself as a representative of USCIS. The phone number these people are calling from will appear to be an official government number. The person will then state that there is a problem with the immigration application and request more information and payment to fix the problem. They may even threaten with deportation if payment is not made.
USCIS does not ask for payment over the phone or through email communications. If you receive these calls, you should hang up and report it immediately. If you receive a scam phone call you can report it here.
If you feel you may be the victim of a scam, call our Georgia Immigration Attorneys and we will be happy to direct you to the proper authorities. We can be reached at 912.401.8880.
