Immigration consultant who had immigrants arrested resurfaces

Fake immigration consultant targeted students online

We have previously blogged about a fake immigration consultant who took money from a group of students from China, promising to sort out their visa overstay issues. The immigration consultant didn’t do anything at all, that is, until one of the students had no money left after giving the immigration consultant $18,000. The immigration consultant then called the RCMP on the student, who was arrested and faced deportation. All of the students were contacted by the fake immigration consultant online.

Immigration consultant resurfaces in Ontario

According to the Canada Border Services Agency, the same  immigration consultant has reappeared online and is targeting people in Southern Ontario. The scammer claims they have an “in” with immigration officials and can help people in the country illegally with all of their visa problems for a huge fee.

To avoid being scammed by unethical immigration consultants or lawyers, newcomers to Canada should only deal with licensed immigration lawyers or consultants with a proven track record.  As we have advised before, expertise due diligence and caution before signing the “dotted line”

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
