New Telephone Scam Targeting Aliens

The American Immigration Lawyers Association recently issued a warning to all its members regarding a new scam targeting aliens:

“AILA has received reports of a new scam potentially victimizing aliens. According to one report, the individual will receive a call purporting to be from a USCIS officer, who will have certain correct information on the individual, including the individual’s name and address. The caller will state that there is some discrepancy in USCIS records, and ask for confirmation of data, such as an I-94 number, an “A” number, or a visa control number. The caller will then tell the individual that there is a penalty for not clearing up the discrepancy, and that the individual is to send a sum of money via Western Union, to an address the caller provides.”

Everyone should be cautious and report any suspicious phone calls such as these.
