How to avoid becoming a victim of notary fraud, immigration consultants, and unscrupulous attorneys
Don’t look for what you want to hear. If you are looking for someone to promise you residency, you will always find someone to do so. Be a good consumer, look for a second (and third) opinion. A legitimate medical practitioner advises their patients to look for other opinions and does not take offense if a patient does. Feel free to do the same with a legal case.
Don’t sign documents or forms in blank.
Don’t sign applications or documents in a language that you don’t understand
Don’t sign documents that include false information
