Global Visa Appeals – Scams: How to protect yourself from scams Immigration Consultants
There are many people who would like to scam you and rip you out of your hard earned money. In the process, they could reveal your ability to apply for immigration benefits or entitlements. So, if we are hiring an immigration consultant or immigration assistance service provider, we should consider these important points to protect ourselves from immigration scams.
- Make sure the person we hire is honest and genuine and only provides basic illegal immigration services for small fees. Remember that immigration consultants and immigration assistance service providers are not lawyers; they do not work for a non-profit organization recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and cannot provide legal advice and legal services.
- Do not trust people who claim to have special contacts with USCIS or who guarantee results or faster processing. No organization or person offering immigration assistance has a special relationship with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and cannot guarantee results or faster processing.
- If we use an immigration consultant or immigration assistance service provider, obtain and keep a written contract from them. The contract must be in English and in our native language. The contract must specify all the services that will be provided to us and how much each service costs. Ask for a reference before we sign the contract. Make sure we fully understand the contract before we sign it and that we can cancel it within 72 hours of signing it. Keep a copy of the contract for our records.
- We should avoid paying cash for the services of an immigration consultant or immigration support service provider. Use your own check, certified check, or credit card to pay for the services of an immigration consultant. Make sure you get a receipt every time you make a payment, and make sure the receipt includes the name and address of the agency or supplier. Never sign a blank form, application or request. Do not sign forms, applications or documents that contain false statements or false information.
