Scammers using SEVP phone numbers to target international students

Dear F-1 students,
 
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has been made aware of a spoofing scam involving individuals using the SEVP Response Center (SRC) phone numbers (703-603-3400 and 800-892-4829) and claiming to be SRC representatives. The fraudulent callers are inquiring about Form I-94 documents and asking students to provide information regarding monetary transactions.

Don’t fall victim to this dangerous scam. If you are unsure about the validity of a call from an SEVP official, you can always reach out to IPSO at ipso@augusta.edu or 706-721-0670.

Things to remember:
  • 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 purpose.
  • NEVER divulge personal or financial information to unknown callers.
  • Report all suspicious calls to the HSI tip line, and if you are unsure about the validity of a call from SEVP officials, do not provide or confirm any information over the phone. Record the phone number, date and time of the call. Request a name and a call back number and reach out to IPSO. 
If you have any additional questions regarding this matter, please contact the SEVP Response Center at 703-603-3400 or 800 892 4829, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, except federal holidays.
