Fraudulent phone calls
We are aware that a number of international students have been targeted by fraudsters, pretending to work for UKVI, advising there is a problem with their visa and requesting additional payment and personal details or they may ask for payment in the form of vouchers eg apple/iTunes or similar vouchers.
Officials from UKVI will NOT phone you to request any additional payment or your personal details. If you receive a call of this nature DO NOT provide any payment or personal details. You should simply end the call or inform the caller that you are seeking advice from the International Student Office. Contact the International Student Office immediately and we will help you report it.
Further information and guidance is available from UKCISA
International Students should always seek advice from an authorised immigration advisor regarding any aspect of their visa and immigration.
