Scam Alert - Phone calls targeting international students

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has released a notice of a re-emerging scam targeting international students. Across various Canadian cities, international students have recently reported receiving phone calls from individuals claiming to be employees of IRCC. The caller tells the student that to avoid deportation, they must send prepaid credit and gift cards, money wires or e-transfers as payment to avoid arrest or deportation. IRCC would never ask you to do this. As far as we know Waterloo students have not been targeted but, we encourage students to be aware.
