Relocation guide

This page provides some tips for international graduate students or visting scholars for relocation:

Scam prevention

No government agency notifies a person with a telephone call, but always in USPS physical mails to your address on file.

If you receive suspecious telephone calls, simply ignore them. Some calls show up with a trustworthy phone number because they use Caller ID spoofing. In some countries, Caller ID spoofing is not possible, but it is existing in US telephone systems and the spoofing is legal.

Spam and telemarketing prevention

If you start to receive telemarketing promotion calls and junk mails, please follow the steps listed in the following webpage:
