A number of immigration frauds take place in the United States. Those include marriage frauds, citizenship frauds, visa frauds, immigration scams targeting specific communities, as well as identity thefts.
The prevalence of so-called notarios, (people who do not have the qualifications of a licensed attorney but claim to provide services as such), has led to the increase of the number of immigration frauds all over the United States.
Going the wrong route to obtain legal residence or/and citizenship in the United States may cause extreme hardship and dire results. Before initiating any case that relates to U.S. immigration, make sure you hire a qualified, experienced immigration lawyer. Failure to do so may result in the denial of your immigration application and worse.
Cases of immigration fraud should be directed and handled by the appropriate law enforcement agency. One such agency is The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), through its Fraud and Abuse Prevention Program (Fraud Program) in EOIR’s Office of the General Counsel. EOIR is committed to identifying and combatting all forms of fraud in order to protect the integrity of immigration proceedings. They can be reached at:
