Hello. “They are planning to arrest you for seven months to jail now.” Students are receiving scam calls at an alarming rate. You can recognize when you are speaking with a scammer by listening for clues. “The total and final outstanding balance of your name all together is $9,750.” U.S. government agencies will never call you to demand money. They will not contact you by phone to let you know they are coming to arrest you. Scammers claim to be calling from many U.S. agencies, including local police departments, USCIS, Department of Homeland Security or even the IRS. “The degrees that you received in your name in December 2017 will now have no more values on it. On behalf of your education, no job or admission will be granted to you in the premise of the United States.” Government agencies cannot take away the degree you have earned. Scammers may use any threat they can to scare you. “The student will need to go into the IRS office of their city personally, individually, by themselves, without involving their parents, CP, or lawyer, tax person or H&R Block office.” Scammers get paid by scaring you into believing you will be arrested, or worse, if you don’t give them money. They can sound very convincing and official. They may even be appear to be calling from an actual agency when you Google their caller ID. Don’t be their next victim. I’m glad I didn’t fall for that. If you receive a call you suspect is spam, do not give them any personal or financial information. End the call immediately and hang up. Contact the ISSC by phone or email. Don’t give them any money. Help save your friends from falling victim to scam calls. Share this video with your fellow ASU students.
