Telephone fraud targets international students at Universities in the UK
Over recent months there have been a number of reports of International students receiving telephone calls from persons who claim to work for the UK Border Agency (UKBA). The caller may appear genuine and convincing because they have some information about you, for example your passport number and visa details. Typically students are informed that there is a problem with their visa or visa application and are asked to make a payment immediately to prevent further action by the UKBA.
The UKBA have confirmed that they will never contact you to ask for money or your personal details. Further information and advice is available from the UKBA ’s web page Frauds, Tricks and Scams.
If you receive any calls that you are unsure about, please contact your Immigration and Welfare Officers as soon as possible:
Do NOT confirm or provide any personal information
Do NOT make any payments over the phone
If you feel confident ask the caller for their name, job title and contact number and tell them you will call them back, but DO NOT call them back
End the call immediately. If the caller rings again DO NOT answer the call.
Report the incident to your Immigration and Welfare Officers who can help you to report the fraud to the police and the UKBA
