Warning About Scam Phone Calls to Adjustment of Status Applicants
Our firm has recently received reports of individuals with pending One-Step Adjustment of Status applications receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be from the Denver Sheriff’s Office. The person on the phone is reported to allege that the individual missed an immigration-related court date and must report to the sheriff’s office.
If you receive any calls from individuals claiming to be from law enforcement or immigration, please contact your immigration attorney immediately. Additionally, please remember to never give personal information over the phone to anyone claiming to represent a local, state, or federal government agency. Local law enforcement agencies do not investigate immigration offenses, and although they may send letters through the mail, neither USCIS nor ICE will use phone calls to collect information or make allegations.
