Report visa and immigration scams

You’ll never be asked to pay for a visa using:

  • cash
  • money transfer

Contact Action Fraud to report visa and immigration scams. You should include:

  • a copy of the suspicious email you received, the sender’s email address and the date and time it was received
  • details of what you sent in a reply, if you replied - for example whether you sent your bank details, address or password

You can also report suspicious emails, letters or telephone calls to the police through Action Fraud.
