Many students receive scam calls or emails. You may be next! Scam artists often pretend to be government employees such as Police, FBI, IRS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They often threaten students to take an immediate action such as making a payment. U.S. government employees will NEVER call you nor email you and NEVER ask you to make payments. Please report any suspicious communication to ISSS!
