One can easily become a victim of immigration fraud in the United States.

You have to remember that being part of any kind of fraudulent procedure will prevent you from ever setting foot in the United States.

If you live in the United States and you are thinking about starting the immigration process, you must be really careful. In this regard, we are going to give you some tips to avoid fraud.

Immigration procedures are not precisely simple, especially to people who are not familiar with the system. However, the <a href=”https://www.ftc.gov/es”>Federal Trade Commission (FTC) </a>has wisely made some good tips public.

First, they warn us about the number of people and websites that take advantage of Latin immigrants (undocumented ones above all) who long to get a work visa or to regularize their immigration status in the U.S.

They have no true legal power.

More advice? Never pay for any United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ <a href=”http://www.uscis.gov/es”>(USCIS) f</a>orms.

They can be downloaded for free on their website.

Additionally, the <a href=”https://www.ftc.gov/es”>FTC </a>published a list from the U.S. Department of Justice where the names of all the immigration lawyers who are currently suspended can be seen. It is important to check it so as to avoid falling into the wrong hands. You can see the list <a href=”http://www.justice.gov/eoir/lista-de-abogados-disciplinados-actualmente”>here.</a><!–more–>

Finally, you can always communicate directly with the <a href=”http://www.uscis.gov/es”>USCIS</a> by dialing 1-800-375-5283. In this way, you will be able to check the availability of lawyers near your city of residence.

All those who have been victims of fraud must let the <a href=”https://www.ftc.gov/es”>FTC </a>know.
