Beware of Immigration Scams

March 1, 2016

You may not think it needs saying, but make sure that the person giving you advice about immigration law is authorized to give it. Only an attorney or an accredited representative working for an organization recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals can give you legal advice.

Notaries public, or the Spanish equivalent of “Notarios publicos” or “Notarios” for short have a different role in Latin American countries than they do in the United States. In Latin America, “notarios” may have the equivalent of a law license and can give legal advice in that capacity. In the United States, notaries may only witness the signature of forms.

Other types of scams to watch out for include telephone callers seeking money to “fix” a fake problem with someone’s immigration record, scams claiming to make it easier to win the diversity visa lottery, and businesses and websites claiming “guaranteed” results in their USCIS filings.

Please contact us for an initial consultation with a licensed attorney if you have questions concerning an immigration law matter.
