Information About Immigration Fraud
The crime of immigration fraud includes, but is not limited to, a wide range of acts such as: providing legal advice as an unqualified individual, misrepresenting oneself as an attorney, notary public, or agent from the INS (disbanded) or USCIS (the agency that grants benefits). It is fraudulent to pose as an authorized representative and give advice or services to immigrants. Furthermore, it is illegal to guarantee and/or charge a fee for government benefits, to operate a fraudulent visa lottery, to provide false promises, or provide unqualified advice. It is also illegal to assist an act of immigration fraud. Producing or assisting in the production of fraudulent immigration documents can mean a prison sentence in addition to fines of $250 to $2,000 for each document. The penalties increase for repeat offenses. A person who creates false documents for an immigrant enters into the area of passport and visa fraud; the offense is compounded if the immigrant is a terrorist. It is a felony to engage in this type of fraud and the offender may end up spending 10-25 years in prison. Participating in immigration marriage fraud is also against the law.
