The Executive Office for Immigration Review today announced that scammers are calling individuals and pretending to be an employee of the Arlington Immigration Court as part of a fraudulent scam. The scammers will even use the Immigration Court’s main number, 703-305-1300, making the calls appear to be coming from the Immigration Court on the recipient’s caller ID.
These scammers posing as Court employees or officers advise individuals that their social security number has been compromised and request money from the victims. These calls are fraudulent; Court personnel do not call individuals regarding social security numbers or to request money.
To protect yourself, be wary of answering phone calls from numbers you do not recognize. Never give out your personal information over the phone to individuals you do not know. Please contact our office should you have any questions or concerns.
