I might have been scammed. How can I find out about my immigration status?
Check with USCIS.
You can check your status online at www.uscis.gov. Put your receipt number into the “Case Status” box on the left-hand side of the webpage.
If you don’t have your receipt number, make an appointment with your local USCIS office. You can do that two ways:
•Go to www.infopass.uscis.gov.
•Call the USCIS National Customer Service Center: 1-800-375-5283.
Immigration scams are illegal. If you or someone you know has seen an immigration scam or been the victim of one, it’s important to report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or the attorney general of your state. Go to ftc.gov/complaint (or call 1-877-382-4357) or click on the map at naag.org to find out how to contact the attorney general in your state. The FTC does not resolve individual complaints. Instead, the FTC enters complaints in a secure online database used by law enforcement worldwide, including many federal, state and local officials, who spot trends and build cases.
The more information you can give, the more helpful your report is to the person who will investigate. Investigators are grateful for as much information as you feel comfortable giving.
