» Home Office Telephone Frauds and Scams

We have, again, been made aware that a number of students have recently been contacted by fraudsters saying that there is a problem with their visa and then trying to extort money from them.

Please be aware of their tactics and know that the Home Office or legitimate organisations never contact students to insist they pay money at very short notice. For details, see the UKCISA item on telephone frauds and scams.

If you are contacted by someone purporting to be from the Home Office or other government agency, please ask for their contact details and tell them you will ask the University’s Immigration & International Student Advice team (IISA) to speak to them on your behalf. If they refuse to accept this, then it is likely to be a scam, state you will contact the UKVI via the University for verification and then hang up. Please then contact the IISA immediately.

As we are coming up to the Christmas period, you may also get scam emails about gifts or unusual activity on your debit or credit card.

Please do not give out personal or account information to anyone by telephone or email and, if you are not sure, come in to see us in IISA for advice.
