International Students


Warning of a scam targeting newly arrived students

A caller identifying himself as CIC (caller ID may reveal call centre number, 1-888-242-2100) is calling students, saying the student has committed misrepresentation by entering a different birth year on the custom declaration form (a white form visitors fill in upon entry to Canada). The student is then asked to make an immediate payment of $750 within half an hour or risk being removed from Canada.


The caller provides a file number, case number and reference number and uses legal words such as removal order and misrepresentation to make the call appear legitimate. If you receive such as phone call, please contact Douglas International at 604-527-5650 immediately.
