Immigrants being targeted for scams

There has been a rise in immigration fraud – those preying on immigrants’ fears for profit.

One example, are deportation letters supposedly sent by USCIS which suggest that the receiver of the letter is subject to deportation.

Please know that these are FAKE letters.

There have also been reports of community members receiving phone calls or solicitation for "deportation insurance" (i.e.. someone would pay a fee to ensure that their green card status would not be taken away).

If you know of any community members who have received these letters or observed this suspicious behavior have them see a lawyer and/or contact the Attorney General Consumer Protection Division or call 1-800-551-4636.
