    Urgent Message About Scam Callers

    Be aware of fraud callers from ‘Home Office’

    International students should watch out for fraudsters calling them to discuss issues with their immigration status and claiming to be from the Home Office.

    These fraudsters are demanding their victims to pay an up-front fee and often ask to confirm personal details such as their passport number and date of arrival in the United Kingdom.

    How to avoid this fraud:

    • The Home Office, Police or any UK Law Enforcement Agency will never ask for money over the telephone. 
    • When receiving unsolicited calls, be wary of providing personal information, or confirming that personal information the caller already claims to hold is correct.
    • Always ensure you know who you are talking to. Ask for the details of the organisation the caller represents and call them back yourself on the officially published numbers rather than the numbers the caller may try to provide you with.

      If you have any concerns regarding your immigration status, please visit the official government website to speak with someone regarding your specific immigration issue.

      If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling 0300 123 2040
