    uscis.gov@f5.sI This is a scam email? They are communicating with me thru email claiming that they are from USCIS. However, they are not calling me and asking for money. They provide me the details and documents needed for my visa. They even emailed me that my employer has paid all the visa processing, foreign affair certifications, national insurance, and flight ticket processing fees.

    In accordance with the Law of the United States, it is the duty of any Foreign Contractor/Agent/Employee to pay responsibly for the procurement and acquisition of Residence Work Permit.
