Comment: A Golden Opportunity For Scammers -
Several states are already anticipating large-scale fraud and deceit surrounding the Deferred Action process as the date when applications will start being accepted nears. State governments are understandably concerned that unlicensed people billing themselves as "immigration consultants" or notarios will prey on the public's lack of understanding of our complex legal system and the intricacies of applying for deferred action. In Texas, the Attorney General sought and was granted a temporary injunction and asset freeze against an organization called 'Just for People, Inc.' which took exorbitant fees while providing no real services. In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo set aside $600,000 for a legal counsel team and also apparently plans to fund a public education campaign aimed at ensuring people do not fall victim to these crooks. Perhaps NY Secretary of State Cesar Perales said it best when he noted that, "[i]t became clear to us that this was going to be a golden opportunity for scammers." We encourage all immigration attorneys to be vigilant in educating the public about the risks of falling victim to these unlicensed rogue organizations that prey on a vulnerable segment of our society, even if it's something as simple as warning post on your blog or website. Share your thoughts and experiences with us at editor@ilw.com. To read more about the Texas case, continue here. For more about New York, see the full article here.
