Avoid Immigration Scams
Permanent residents may find themselves in Orlando immigration court. Very often we are asked to help immigrants that should never have been in immigration court altogether, had they been properly advised. The sad truth is bad advice will cost you dearly. Immigration is a complex area of law. Scam artists know this and often take advantage of immigrants that don't have proper representation. Therefore, we've assembled a few tips to help you avoid immigration scams.
1. Be wary of "official" telephone calls from USCIS
As a general rule, USCIS officials rarely call you. A genuine USCIS official would rather see you in person. Always write down the full name and contact information of the person calling you. NEVER provide your alien number (A#), social security number, credit card number, or bank information to someone claiming to be from USCIS or immigration court. Keep in mind that USCIS does not accept payment of immigration fees or bonds over the phone.
2. Notarios are not Attorneys
In many Central and South American countries, a "Notario Publico" (Public Notary) is an officer of the court. The same is not true in the United States. However, many "Notarios" take advantage of this confusion and offer legal services without being qualified to dispense legal advice. Countless mmigrants at the Orlando immigration court are victims of notario fraud. Moreover, the Orlando USCIS office may immediately suspect fraud regarding your application if it was prepared by a notario, or paralegal practicing without the supervision of a licensed attorney.
3. Never purchase USCIS forms from a website
I guarantee you that any website selling immigration forms is not authorized to do so by USCIS. Keep in mind that USCIS does not charge a fee for forms. The best way to insure you have the latest USCIS forms is to visit the USCIS site or visit an experienced immigration attorney.
4. There are no guarantees when dealing with USCIS or the Orlando Immigration Court
If an attorney (or notario, or paralegal) guarantees a specific result with USCIS or Immigration Court, they are not telling the truth! Immigration and USCIS rules are complex. You and your family deserve knowledgeable and honest advice. Please don't be scammed by a promise that won't be kept.
5. For any USCIS, immigration, or immigration court issue
Please seek the advice of a knowledgeable immigration attorney who is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association ("AILA").
