When visiting immigration sites, it is important to note that all government sites end with .gov. There are other sites on the web which purposefully mimic the government sites and can be confusing. The copycat sites will sell forms or try to obtain personal information from individuals. The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) provides forms for free at uscis.gov. The USCIS will also not request payment over the phone. If you are contacted and asked to make a payment over the phone, the call is a scam. Technology today allows scammers to use Caller ID Spoofing where the call may seem to originate from an official number like the USCIS (Immigration) or FBI. Do not make payments to individuals contacting you via phone.
