Several residential providers have received a phone call from someone claiming to be with Homeland Security/ Immigration. This is a scam and you should and not provide the caller with any information.

The phone number the caller uses has a strange area code and may have a 63 prefix.

The caller asks for the owner by name, then asks how many employees the provider has. The caller says the owner must complete a form that will be e-mailed to them. The caller says there is a $100 per person fee to process the form and requests a credit card number. The caller says this form must be completed immediately or there is a $10,000 per employee penalty.

Again, this is a scam.  Do not provide staff names or credit card information to the caller.
