“Home Office Immigration Cold Call Fraud Alert – The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) and Action Fraud have recently noticed that fraudsters are purporting to be from the Home Office and cold-calling victims to claim that there is a problem with their immigration status. Victims are informed that in order to rectify this issue, they must pay an up-front fee and are often asked to confirm personal details such as their passport number and date of arrival in the United Kingdom.
Please note that a link to the NFIB’s feedback survey can be found at the end of every alert, or you can access it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FeedbackSDU. The survey is only 3 questions long and should take no more than 2 minutes to complete. We would appreciate it if you would take a moment to let us know if an alert was particularly useful, or if you have any suggestions for improvement. If you have been forwarded this email and wish to be added to the distribution list for fraud alerts, please contact NFIBOutputs@cityoflondon.pnn.police.uk.
