Hey, guys!

My fiance is coming to the US on K-1 next week! My mother called me and told me that the FBI left her a letter on her door. It said something like this: Ma'am, we are contacting you in regards to a foreign person who has been granted trust with the US government. If you could contact us so we can ask you some question please contact."

Is this legit? Why would they do that if he's already approved? Has anyone else had anything like this happen?

if from the FBI on an official letterhead, you better believe it is legit!

Why would they do that? They are probably just doing fact-checking... Given middle-east conflict issues and our government being notorious for recording every conversation of foreigners and of US Citizens......lol Not much you can do about it. She just needs to do what the letter is requesting and call them up and talk to them.

Why would the FBI need to put a letter on a door ? A relative of my husband works for the FBI & says they don't do business that way.

Yeah, I didn't read the part about leaving a "note on the door".... But then again, I have personally witnessed police officers or others in an official capacity who will leave a business card or some type of note on the door. Especially if it was a "personal visit" by "The Man"

For the original poster:

I am not sure how someone could just leave a "note on your door" unless someone was super familiar with your current visa processing. If it is a scam, it would need to be someone that not only a) lives nearby and b) is fully aware of your pending applicatoin.. ( unlikely ).

It's simple: just ask your mother for the address on the letterhead and the accompanying phone number. And then do a quick google search. Problem solved.

It sound like a scam to me. If the FBI needed to check anything out they are not going to just drop a note on the door, maybe the local police but not the FBI. you will definitely know if they need to contact you.

Ask your self why will they need to contact Some one, immigration is not a reason

Do not answer that letter

Do not answer that letter

I am not sure ignoring it completely would be the right thing to do. I would establish if it was truly legitimate first. Inquiring with the local FBI office would certainly clear this up and also open up a case against the person if was in fact a scam.

If there is a telephone number, then the FBI could track that.

the FBI, just for information sake, is in charge of handling federal issues within the US Territories. So it would be completely legitimate for them to inquire on a potential US immigrant if they had concerns..

EDIT: Im not saying it is legitimate or not. Im just saying you should contact your local FBI office.

it's not legit. The background checks have been completed if the visa was issued. They should report it to the real FBI, it isn't the OP's responsibility to figure anything out.

Agree with Ning, this is a load of #######, but by all means make sure you get it to the FBI..,..,I promise you they can find who did this prank.

Someone needs to answer for their actions.

I just hope you call the FBI, and tell them what has happened.

Don't ignore. Report to real FBI. and limit how many ppl know your business. Go over any public profile you have and ensure no identifying info, don't post too much about the process on social media. Someone is watching you, knows too much and has too much time on their hands.

Hey, guys!

Go to the fbi with this if possible. At a min. Turn it over to law enforcement. It's a scam and people should get arrested for impersonating fbi.

Did they leave a name and phone number on the letter? If so you can call the FBI field office of your area, let them know about the letter and ask them to verify if that agent name and phone number is the real deal. If it is legit tell them to connect you with the agent. I personally don't think it's real but I suggest you investigate a little just to be on the safe side.
