EOIR Warns of Scammers Spoofing Agency Phone Number
FALLS CHURCH, VA – The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) today announced it has recently been notified of phone calls that spoof the Office of the Chief Immigration Judge as part of a misinformation campaign. The callers will often “spoof,” or fake, the Office of the Chief Immigration Judge’s main line, 703-305-1247, so the calls appear to be coming from EOIR on the recipient’s caller ID.
In this scam, fraudulent callers posing as EOIR employees request personal information from the victims. These calls are fraudulent; EOIR personnel do not call individuals from this number about case-related matters. To protect yourself, be wary of answering phone calls from numbers you do not recognize. Never give out your personal information over the phone to individuals you do not know.
If you have a question about your case, please call the Automated Case Information Hotline at 1-800-898-7180, or visit the Automated Case Information System (https://portal.eoir.justice.gov/InfoSystem) or the Immigration Court Online Resource (https://icor.eoir.justice.gov).
