Urgent: Call for deportation from immigration office

Post by nattykat19 » Wed Oct 24, 2018 11:34 am

I just got a call from immigration office saying ill be deported to india with a black mark on passport. when asked if there were any cases or tax/loan defaults on me in india, i said no. I asked the lady where was she calling me from and her name. She responded saying that there will be two police officers coming to collect me at home.
The reason what is disturbing me further is that i was at the INIS office yesterday and had gone for stamping. So i assumed it is a follow up call. I checked the number she called me from - it was (01) 666 9100 - it is the burgh quay INIS dublin office number (Garda National Immigration Bureau)

I did not react much as my books and records are clean but am still in a state of shock. What should i do? Should i call the authorities? if yes, who do i call?

please help.

I think you must file a complaint with garda.

I thought it was a scam, but that number belongs to GNIB

I had similar experience where I got scam call claiming to be Revenue just after visiting Revenue office.

record call if somebody call you again.

its a SCAM , dont worry about it. Has anyone been asked money so far?

The GNIB Appointment service website is being hacked now on a daily basis - Security Design is so terrible that hackers have been swooping all available slots and then selling them.

Similarly, other hackers have been getting phone numbers from those appointment details. These people are then getting fake calls from people pretending to be calling from INIS.

There are numerous apps out there that help a caller pretend that they are calling form different numbers. See this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etFU0gOhwNE

So, next time someone gets a call, just ask them to confirm your address where they plan to come pick you from, and that you will be waiting for them with tea ;)

Also, Do report to Garda and INIS that their number is being mis-used. May be they can do some announcement on their pages.
