IMMIGRATION SCAM -- Public Service Announcement
Please be advised of an immigration scam occurring in Lansing.
A client received a phone call yesterday from (619) 432-0272 claiming to be Brian Mendez, immigration chief of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Caller requested my client to pay $400+ for English class or he would be picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and/or local police. Caller stated a case number and provided the phone number of Carina Rodriguez of the "Superior Court of California" at (619) 383-0445.
If you dial the first number, the recording announces that it is USCIS, very believable. This is a government impostor. The other number is no different- both fakes.
Immigrants are especially vulnerable and fearful at this time, given the Executive Orders being enforced.
Please help stop the scam by warning vulnerable individuals.
