USCIS Issues Form I-9 Scam Alert

Employers Are Not Required to Submit I-9s to USCIS

Scam-AlertThe U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently issued an alert warning of scam emails that appear to come from USCIS and ask employers for Form I-9 information. The alert advises that employers are not required to submit Forms I-9 to USCIS.

According to the alert, the scam emails may:

  • Come from the fraudulent email address, which is not a USCIS email address;
  • Contain USCIS and Office of the Inspector General labels; and/or
  • Contain the employer’s address and a fraudulent download button that links to the non-government web address

USCIS is directing employers to not respond to these emails or click the links in them, and to report any suspected scam emails to the Federal Trade Commission.
