Be Aware of Scams

International students are targets, and sometimes victims, of phone and email scams. Criminals have been calling and/or emailing students pretending to be from their home country consulate (or embassy), 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.
