Fraud Alert- Indian Students

by Shane Mooney | May 18, 2021
Some students have being contacted recently via telephone by person(s) claiming to be from The Indian Embassy and or ISD demanding payment to prevent deportation. The caller may have access to personal information and be very convincing. 
THIS IS ATTEMPTED FRAUD. Embassies never ask for payments via telephone, post office or any other non official channels. All issues should be dealt with directly onsite at the Embassy and NOT over the phone.
If you receive one of these calls please DO NOT AGREE TO A PAYMENT. If you are still unsure, please go directly to the Embassy and speak with a staff member at the premises or contact the local Garda station.
Alternatively you can ask for advice from the Student Services Team.
