Help Stop Passport and Visa Fraud!

Passport and visa fraud are more than just paper threats.

Fraudulent passport and visa documents allow people to enter and leave the U.S. illegally—a federal crime in itself. Criminals may use false travel documents, or authentic passports or visas obtained through fraud, to commit other crimes—like terrorism, child exploitation, human and drug trafficking, financial fraud, and identity theft.

Passport fraud and visa fraud post serious threats to our safety and national security.

Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) special agents help pursue and apprehend fugitives charged with passport and visa fraud. The individuals on the DSS Most Wanted list are wanted for visa or passport fraud or related crimes.

You can help DSS by providing information about these fugitives.

Do not attempt to apprehend any of these fugitives yourself— they could be armed and dangerous.

If you have information on the suspects listed below, contact DSS Most Wanted at DSSMostWanted@state.gov or call toll free at 1-855-TIP-4-DSS.
