Canadian Visa Scam: How to Spot The Red Flags
A multitude of Canadian visa scams has arisen in the last few years. To the untrained eye, these companies could come off as legit, but we are going to give you 4 red flags to look out for to ensure that you are able to separate the real from the fake when it comes to Canadian immigration companies.
Red Flag 1-If Something Feels Off, It Probably Is
This may seem strange, but it is quite important to pay attention to that little voice that tells you something is not right. This usually comes when you feel pressure from the company you are dealing with to hand over your card details. A reputable company would never request your private banking details or passwords.
Red Flag 2-Poor Online Presence
Red Flag 3-No Mention of Regulated Consultants
If a company claims to have a team of experts who are well equipped to handle your visa application but fails to make mention of who these people are, that’s a red flag. In addition, the team needs to consist of registered RCIC members and if this information is nowhere to be found, it’s a telling sign of a lack of legitimacy.
Red Flag 4-Bad Reviews
A simple google search of the company you are dealing with will show you what other people are saying about the company. No company is going to only have positive reviews but if the negative comments outnumber the praises, you are likely dealing with a company that is either incapable or downright fraudulent.
