Fraud Advisory – Scammers Using SEVP and HSI Phone Numbers to Target International Students

General Information
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has been made aware of a spoofing scam
involving individuals using an SEVP Response Center (SRC) phone number (703-603-3400) or a
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) office phone number (757-441-6533) to target
nonimmigrant students. Fraudulent callers are claiming to be SEVP representatives and asking
students to provide their immigration information, such as their Alien Registration Number or
Form I-94, “Arrival/Departure Record,” information, or face deportation.

SEVP encourages designated school officials to reach out to their students to make them aware
of this scam. If you or one of your students encounter, or are a victim of this spoof call, you are
encouraged to report the incident to the HSI tip line. If you are unsure about the validity of a call
from an SEVP official, you can also reach out to your designated SEVP field representative or
contact the SRC.

Tips and items to remember:
• NEVER divulge personal or financial information to unknown callers.
• SEVP officials will NEVER ask stakeholders to provide credit/debit card/gift card
numbers, wire transfers, or bank routing numbers, or to make bitcoin deposits for any
• Report all suspicious calls to the HSI tip line and if you are unsure about the validity of a
call from SEVP officials reach out to your designated SEVP field representative.
If you have any additional questions regarding this matter, please contact the SRC at 703-603-
3400 or 800-892-4829, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, except federal
