Immigration scams have been an increasing phenomenon in the last few days. This can essentially be attributed to the lack of information about immigration complexities among people across the world.[adinserter block=”3″]
Scammers find it very easy to tarnish these people and deceive them by providing them fake or unreal services. This can cause various problems including financial pressure, identity robbery, or arrest.
Most often, immigration scams can be online or through phones. Offenders usually use robocalls whereby they send automated messages to some phone numbers already selected, and wait for the victim to respond.
How can I distinguish between a scam immigration agency and a credible immigration agency?
Scam immigration agencies are usually characterized by:
- Communicatively unclear
- Not authorized
- Have ideal reviews
- Completely ensures pledges
6. Unreal immigration officials
There are many unlawful people who act like officials from immigration departments. These people usually tend to email or call immigrants to alert them of a certain problem they must solve as soon as possible.
For instance, they say that the immigrant should pay a certain amount of money (by gift cards, Western Union, or other means of payment); otherwise.
all the application process he/she went through will be in vain, and he/she will lose his/her status. And to sound serious, they usually ask for personal information such as cell numbers, names, and addresses. If you come across such people, we advise you to just ignore them and never reply to them.
