You can ignore the request and abandon your application or write a letter and withdraw your application. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, the sentence imposed, and the dollar amount involved in the fraud, you may be facing removal (deportation) proceedings once the immigration authorities find out you have been convicted. You may be able to avoid trouble but need the help of an experienced attorney now.
