Scam and fraud warning


Recently, the Embassy of S.R. Vietnam in Washington D.C. has been notified of a number of telephone scammers, who have impersonated the Consulate-Generals of Vietnam in San Francisco and Houston to request the recipients to provide their personal information and/or documentation for possible identity theft and fraud.


If you receive unwanted calls from anyone identifying themselves as representing Vietnam's diplomatic missions in the United States with the above-mentioned requests, kindly report the scams to local police authorities. You may also contact the Embassy's hotline at 202 716 8666 or email for further assistance if necessary./.
