ADVISORY FOR INDIAN NATIONALS ON FRAUDULENT PHONE CALLS

Some Indian nationals, who have recently arrived in or migrated to Australia, have been receiving fraudulent calls from unauthorized persons about their Australian visa / immigration status. At times the callers have even spoofed the phone numbers allotted to the High Commission of India, Canberra or its Consulates in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth or their Service Provider viz., M/s VFS Global or Australian Immigration Department. These calls are not made by any authorized officials from these offices. It may be noteworthy that the Indian High Commission or its Consulates usually do not deal with the immigrant Indians regarding their Australian visa / immigration status.

If any Indian national receives such a call, he/she is requested to immediately report regarding such incident to local police authorities and a copy of report be forwarded to cons.perth@mea.gov.in

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has issued following guidelines available in the following link: http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa/migration-fraud-and-scams
