We have heard from other Universities that international students are again being targeted by hoax phone calls claiming to be from the Home Office or UK Border Agency.

The caller may appear to be genuine and convincing and explain that there is a serious problem with your immigration status, and that you need to send a payment as soon as possible to prevent further action including deportation.

If you are contacted by anyone claiming to be from the Home Office or the UK Border Agency:

  • Do not give out any personal information, or confirm that any personal information they have is correct
  • Do not make any payment
  • Do report the matter online to action fraud (www.actionfraud.police.uk), or by calling Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040

Or contact Student Advice on 020 7911 5000 ext 66080, email [email protected] for further information.
