Starting your Canadian immigration process is difficult. The adjustments, application procedures, and documentation required can be quite daunting. For this reason, people seek help with the visa application process. It is advisable to get trustworthy assistance for your Canadian visa application considering all the fraudulent immigration agencies out there these days. You should always keep in mind that some businesses take advantage of those seeking immigration services. Unsuspecting clients usually fall prey and accept services by unauthorized practitioners. This could have long-term financial and other detrimental consequences such as identity theft. 

At MDC, the Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) provide expert advice and pride themselves on their ability to offer you a truthful and consistent service. You are guaranteed to receive the guidance necessary in your Canadian visa application process. Below we have put together some common forms of Canadian immigration fraud and tips to help you foresee scammers.  

1. The News Seems Too Good to Be True

If you have doubts or when the news seems too good to be true, consider a second opinion. If you’ve been in a situation where your Canadian visa application has been rejected and now it seems to be an easy application, it might be a scam. After all, everyone wants good news but a Canadian visa application will only be successful if the candidate meets all the necessary criteria. The process can be quite challenging, that is why we suggest you do your research or seek advice from our well-informed Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) who have the expert knowledge to guide you through your Canadian visa application.

2. Strange Payments for Vague Reasons

While a Canadian visa is not free, nor the expert service offered by RCICs. only scammers will expect hasty payments through odd payment services such as Western Union etc. There are specific and clear payment instructions that immigration service providers like MDC put in place and candidates should only be requested to pay following these instructions. MDC offers cost-effective evaluations to consider your unique needs, save you time, and meet deadlines.   

3. Offer a Canadian Visa Without a Proper Eligibility Procedure

Receiving your Canadian visa is excellent but only if you actually followed the Canadian visa application process properly. If you receive no feedback on your eligibility or information about your application and simply receive a green light without a proper explanation of why you are eligible, it is almost impossible to have landed a Canadian visa legally. It is best to ensure that you are sending your personal documents to a trusted and registered company.

At MDC, our RCICs call applicants to give you all the information you may need as well as answer any questions you may have about the visa process. It’s that simple. Some RCIC’s are immigrants themselves and therefore use their own personal experience, knowledge, and passion to guide you through the immigration process.

4. Fabricating Documents and Promising Specific Results

RCICs provide you with personalized assistance to lead you to the right immigration option according to your personal goals and qualifications. Each candidate's visa application is unique and there can never be a guaranteed outcome that the process will be successful. No applicants will receive immigration benefits and no immigration service will offer to write any documentation or alter any documents for the applicant. As such favors are illegal and we can assure you that it might be a scam.

At MDC, we carefully approach your immigration application within a set timeline. You will always be aware of the progress as this is a transparent procedure and includes the applicant at all times. 

5. Poor Communication From Free Services

So we've come to the last tip on our "how to Spot Canadian immigration fraud" guide, and it's a highly important one. If communication between you and the company is filled with poor English and grammatical mistakes, you should be wary. This is concerning because it shows the company does not pride themselves in their service. If the email comes from a free service like Gmail or Outlook instead of a dedicated email address from a company, it is probably a scam. At MDC we are three RCIC’s, David Allon, Ying Liu, and Jimmy Park who will always give you honest and reliable information.  

We believe that immigrating to Canada is a real possibility for thousands of people, but a Canadian visa application requires preparation, time, and attention. We provide guided assistance with the various immigration laws and regulations to represent our clients in an ethical manner as members of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. We are authorized by the Canadian and provincial governments and we abide by the rules of professional conduct to serve our clients' best interests.
