USCIS reports that employers are being targeted in an email scam requesting employers to submit I-9 information. The emails are reportedly sent from a fraudulent email, news@uscis.gov, and contain USCIS labels, employer addresses, and links to websites that appear government related. If you receive an email purporting to be from USCIS and requesting I-9 information, do not respond or click on any links within the email. If you receive a fraudulent email, you can forward the email to the USCIS webmaster at uscis.webmaster@uscis.dhs.gov.

Employers must complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for every employee on their payroll, and these forms must be retained for the required period of time. Employers are not, however, required to submit the forms to USCIS.
