Attention: International Students Phone Scam!
26th July 2012 3:34 pm
A scam targeting international students has come to our attention.
International students are being called up by someone impersonating UK Border Agency and asking for their passport or visa details and in some instances for money to sort out putative problems with databases or with visas.
UK Border Agency would NOT normally contact students for their details in this way.
If it happens to you or to people you know, please report the case to your country's international office or to UK Border Agency. There is more information about fraud and how to report it on the UKCISA website.
