Especially during tax season, international students may be targeted by phone or email scams. Be aware: scammers may falsely represent themselves as representatives of the IRS, USCIS, or other government agencies.
As posted on their official website, the IRS will never:
Contact you by email, text or social media.
Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail you a bill if you owe any taxes.
Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
If you receive a suspicious phone call or email, visit the UTA Police Department website for guidance. The UTA Police Department suggests you verify emails with unusual requests for money, personal information, or account information by contacting the Information Security Office at email@example.com before acting. They can provide you with additional guidelines to verify if this is a valid request. You may also forward emails to the Office of Information Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scams can be further reported to the UTA Police Department and IRS Identity Protection Unit.
