The US Department of Homeland Security has issued a Scam Alert stating employers have been receiving scam emails requesting information from employee I-9 forms.

USCIS website states: “These scam emails come from a fraudulent email address: news@uscis.gov. 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 button that links to a non-government web address (uscis-online.org). Do not respond to these emails or click the links in them.”
