Dear Duke Students, Scholars, and Employees:
Foreign Nationals are receiving phone calls and emails from scammers requesting payments, personal information, and immediate action to avoid immediate deportations/severe issues with a person’s visa status. Remember, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials will never ask for payment over the phone or in an email.
If payment is required, a letter on official stationery will be physically mailed to you. If you ever are unsure about the authenticity of the source:
- Do not provide payment/personal information.
- Record as much information about the call as possible.
- Contact Duke Visa Services with this information so we may help determine if the request is legitimate and can provide any necessary instructions to assist you.
If you have any further questions, contact Duke Visa Services. For more detailing information on this issue, refer to https://www.uscis.gov/avoid-scams.
