News and Announcements


Every year we are informed by our students that they have received phone calls from people identifying themselves as U.S. government officials, usually from an immigration (DHS, ICE, CBP, USCIS) or tax office (IRS) threatening the students with deportation, immediate arrest, huge fines, etc. if they do not send money to the caller. Often the telephone number that appears on the phone is an actual U.S. government phone number (e.g., 1-800-829-1040). 

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY SUCH CALLS into wiring money or buying gift cards and sending them to the callers. 

The U.S. government will never ask you to transfer money to an individual electronically or to pay a fine by gift cards. Should you owe money to the U.S. government, you would receive written notification and there would be a lot of paperwork involved! 

Please inform yourself of Common Scams: USCIS Scams and IRS Scams

Also, please watch this informational IRS YouTube video about scams.

One of our students who received such a call recorded it and has given us permission to share it with you so that you can hear how persistent the callers can be. She did a great job dealing with them!

If you receive such a call, you should report it to the Federal Trade Commission and to New York State.

Should you receive a call about which you are suspicious, our advice is that you immediately hang up. If you want to try to record the call and share it with the Slutzker Center, we would be happy to post it to educate other students in an effort to give examples of how these things happen.
