3 Tips to Avoid Being Scammed by ‘Immigration Consultants’

Immigration is a complicated process. Regardless of whether you want to move to the US to study, work or to settle down, the possibility of making mistakes during immigration is very high. As such, you might consider hiring an immigration consultant but you must be cautious about who you choose. Since your life and career are at stake, it’s important for you to make sure that you don’t fall victim to scams.

These tips will help:

  1. First of all, remember that there is no such thing as a ‘guarantee’ when it comes to immigration. Even the most experienced and prolific immigration lawyers can’t ‘guarantee’ you anything. Essentially, it is up to you to ask questions about his qualification and experience.
  2. If he asks you to produce forged documents, medical records, or anything unethical, refuse to comply. This is one of the first signs of scammers. If you’re caught, your chances of immigrating successfully will get zero and possibly barred forever.
  3. Finally, remember that no one can manipulate the US immigration system. If someone says he has ‘people’ inside the US immigration, don’t believe them. In addition, if the consultant is preparing any documents for you, make sure he signs it as the preparer.
