Scam Alert - Scam targeting international students

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has released a scam notice reporting that international students have been recently receiving phone calls from individuals claiming to be IRCC employees. The caller tells the student that to avoid arrest and deportation, they must obtain an immigration lawyer.

As far as we know Waterloo students have not been targeted but, we encourage students to be aware.
