Immigrating to a new country can be an intimidating process. There are many forms to fill out, fees to pay, and requirements to meet. This complexity leads many immigrants to seek assistance navigating the system. While most immigrant assistance services are legitimate, some are scams designed to take advantage of vulnerable people.
One common type of fraud is when a service charges fees but never completes or files the immigration forms as promised. The victim ends up losing the money paid and still needing to start the immigration process over again. This can cause major delays and problems.
Another scheme involves services giving incorrect or fraudulent advice. They may tell immigrants to apply for visas or programs they aren’t actually eligible for, resulting in wasted time and denial. Or they might make false promises about options like “guaranteed” asylum that don’t really exist.
Some fraudulent operations even file immigration applications containing false information without the immigrant’s knowledge. This not only jeopardizes the application, but can get the immigrant in legal trouble for immigration fraud.
There are several red flags that can help immigrants avoid assistance services scams:
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) warns immigrants to not work with anyone who says they can expedite applications or obtain waivers that aren’t allowed. It’s also important to research services online and check for complaints before hiring them.
If an immigrant believes they have been the victim of an assistance service scam, it should be reported right away. This helps prevent the scam from continuing to victimize others.
USCIS has a form to report immigration scams. Complaints can also be filed with state attorneys general, the Better Business Bureau, and the Federal Trade Commission. Police may get involved for large fraud cases.
Immigrants should keep any documentation related to the scam, such as contracts and receipts. This evidence will help investigators in building a case against the fraudulent company or individual.
There are some legal protections available for immigrants scammed by assistance services:
While legal action can potentially recover financial damages, it usually doesn’t fix issues with stalled or botched immigration applications. That remedy still lies with USCIS. Documenting the scam and reporting it ASAP are immigrants’ best chance for justice.
The complexity of immigrating legally makes many vulnerable to scams. But there are steps immigrants can take to find trustworthy assistance:
Navigating a new immigration system takes patience and caution. But immigrants who do their homework can find legitimate help and avoid becoming victims. With vigilance and reporting, we can shut down these scammers exploiting newcomers’ eagerness to join our communities.
