US Immigration Direct ~ immigrationdirect.com

scamFRAUDalert see it fitting to issue this ALERT as scamalerthttp://www.immigrationdirect.com/ is not representative of any Governmental agency nor are they authorized to act in any capacity.

Immigration direct preys on illiterate or newcomers that cannot understand that they are not on a government web site. THEY ARE THEN ASKED TO PAY $49 for a form that is available free from the Canadian government. once you finish filling out the form they then tell you to print it and send it to the government office that it needs to be sent to. This apparently is the service that they are providing.

Although it may not be illegal, it does come up first in every Google search and therefore fools a lot of unsuspecting people that are being fooled into getting a service that is not really being provided.
They also have a disclaimer on their home page that is in a light gray font and hardly noticeable to to mention irrelevant because most people can’t read or understand it and think they are on a government website.

These people are vultures and should not be allowed to cheat unsuspecting newcomers.
