Robocalls Targeting Immigrants, Foreign University Students
Most Americans are aware the Internal Revenue Services does not make telephone calls to people to tell them they owe the federal tax agency money. But that knowledge is far less prevalent among particular populations. That’s why robocalls by phone scammers are targeting immigrants and foreign students at universities in the United States, says Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Adam Doupé (in red shirt, with students in photo). That’s one reason Arizona is among the places where perpetrators of such scams most frequently target their efforts, says Doupé, whose expertise includes vulnerability analysis, web security, mobile security and network security.
