U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced that employers have received scam emails requesting Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, information.

USCIS said that the scam emails have been coming from a fraudulent email address: This is not a USCIS email address. The body of the email may contain USCIS and Office of the Inspector General labels, your address and a fraudulent download link to a non-government web address ( "Do not respond to these emails or click the links in them," USCIS warned.

Those who believe they received a scam email requesting I-9 information from USCIS may report it to the Federal Trade Commission website.Those who are uncertain may forward the suspicious email to the USCIS webmaster, USCIS "will review the emails received and share with law enforcement agencies as appropriate."
