An increasing number of international students and scholars are targeted by scams. The most common scams involve immigration, tuition, taxes, employment and travel.
Please be suspicious if anyone demands that you wire them money. Do not share your personal (SSN, passport number, date of birth) or financial information (debit/credit card number, bank account number) with unknown persons. Remember that government officials will never call you and ask you for money or threaten deportation. If you fall victim to a scam, contact law enforcement by calling 614-292-2121 or 614-645-4545.
