WARNING: Scam (Fake) IRS/FBI/USCIS Phone Calls - Don't Lose Your Money!

The International Center would like to warn you about phone calls from criminals pretending to be from U.S. law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, or from U.S. government agencies such as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), or the Michigan Department of Treasury. The calls may also be "robo-calls" making "urgent" callback requests.
