Multiple commercial websites offer immigration or citizenship services. Unfortunately, some will offer false guarantees to take your money or steal your private information. These are scams.
There are many red flags that you should look out for, including: you are asked to pay for official application forms and guides, the website asks you to pay for faster processing of your application or has no contact information.
Every week, we discover new attempts to scam members of our community. When you report potential scammers, we investigate to confirm if any action should be taken on our end, such as banning the person from our community.
We may also forward this information to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
