Warning! Has anyone received a survey call from USCIS?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received a blocked call from someone saying that they were from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, wanting to ask us questions about our case. They didn't give a name or ID number. I got a funny feeling about the call and hung up. I immediately called USCIS and talked to them and they said they didn't do survey calls.

I'm thinking this was some kind of phishing scam and was wanting to warn others. Everytime USCIS calls, it's from the same number, they say USCIS, not what it stands for, and they give their name and ID number. Not sure what it was about, but it wasn't them, so be careful!

Yea but OP said the person said he or she was calling from USCIS. That is completely different from CDC.

So I wouldn't give any information to them..

It might be the same way fake credit card companies get your number - pure phishing. So sorry but no, I do not have a Discover card and therefore there is no "suspicious" activity on something that does not exist and my husband does not have an Amazon account and therefore you do not need his CC number to confirm delivery of a package that he could not have ordered. :rolleyes:
