Canadian Visa Experts is a scam by yinkavelli(m): 2:30pm On Apr 19, 2013
hello lovely people of nairaland, i am very concerned about a Canadian immigration website i visited 6months ago in regards to getting a work visa there....this is the site Canadian Visa Expert tho i applied a long time ago, i had forgotten about it when all of a sudden they just started bombarding me with calls this past week, asking me questions ranging from my educational, work back ground and how much i earn presently. i tot all was well until it got to a point when they stared to ask me for my MasterCard details, for an assessment fee of more than $600 which they said will be deducted from my atm. anytime the funds gets there. i don't mean to sound paranoid but it sounded dodgy to me, i guess this is maybe asper sharp naija boy. well, i asked my bank to block my ATM till i can ascertain the authenticity of this company or website...please nairalanders, i need your comments flowing in as reasonable, rational and responsible also helpful comments about them will be immeasurably appreciated. God bless the works of our hands, and may our good dreams come true. Yinkavelli undecided

I personally don't know how people get visas in Nigeria but i think if an agency is claiming to be an accredited visa agency their information will be registered with the Canadian embassy. so, to check their credentials start with the Canadian embassy.

It is tricky. An immigration agency may be operating from Canada and scam you while NOT breaking any Canadian law. A lot of those agencies prey on desperate people and are ready to charge exorbitant fee for a service you could easily do for yourself.

For instance, they may advertise that they can help you obtain permanent resident status in Canada and ask you to send $1000 for assessment and fill a questionnaire. There is nothing wrong with that under the law.

However, after you have send the money and have answered their questionnaire, this is when they would tell you that you don't qualify for permanent residence in Canada (under family class neither under the skill program). In other words, you have paid them $1000 for them to tell you that you don't qualify for permanent residence in Canada whereas you could have found that out by yourself if you did visit the Canadian immigration website.

My advise would be to deal directly with the Canadian embassy if you need information on how to move the Canada. All the applications are ONLINE and you can do it by yourself. Even better, you may post your questions on Nairaland where the community would assist you.

If you choose to deal with an agency, chances are you will be throwing your money through the window. Good luck.

Thanks,

You may immigrate to Canada under any of the following categories:

• Federal skilled workers
• Federal Skilled Trades Program
• Quebec-selected skilled workers
• Canadian Experience Class
• Investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed
• Family sponsorship
• Provincial nominees
• Live-in caregivers
• Refugees


Do your homework by visiting the following website to determine if you do qualify to immigrate under any category.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/apply.asp

According to the Canadian Immigration Webstite, when immigrating to Canada, you don’t have to use an immigration representative to represent you. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/protection/fraud/index.asp

Don't be a victim of Fraud. If you need further help, you may post your questions on Nairaland and the community on here would be more than happy to assist you.
Re: Canadian Visa Experts is a scam by santafe(m): 8:50pm On Aug 09, 2013
I used an immigration consultant in Sept 2009 and was defrauded to the. Tune of 2500usd. Since then, I vowed I would never use a consultant again. I decided to do personal research and I got a lot of useful inf. From cic.gc.ca the official website of the Canadian govt.I filed my application myself under FSW in March 2010 and I got my immigrant visa in september 2012. Left Naija with my family in Dec and the rest is history. A lot of folks do not want to spend quality time in research and are not organised that is why they fall into the hand of false immigration agent.
Also go to canadavisa.com and register with the forum. You will get everything u need to process your visa. Even the so called visa agents come to these forums to get info.

Well, you didn't give her all the digits so it's unlikely she can take money out. The first 6 digits are specific to the bank, not your personal account. You can ask your bank if they provide a service whereby they can 'stop payment' if that particular agency tries to take money out. And remember: never, never, never give out your account or credit card or identity details on the phone if someone calls, or online if you get an email supposedly from your financial institution. Always go back to your financial institution to ask if they really did call or email you. And if it's some random person calling, like Samantha, just hang up and move on.

(During the telephone conversation, which was legally recorded for your protection and for our protection, our agent read you a transaction script, asked you several questions and you responded that you agreed to everything, including paying for our services 1147$ .

Therefore, I would like you to respond to this email within the next 10 business days and provide me with the best day, time and phone number for me to contact you so we may reach a mutually-satisfactory solution to this matter.

It's a scam. They can't do anything to you. They can't take you to court, and they know it. They're hoping you don't know, and that they can intimidate you into paying more money. If they call back, tell them you've found out they're a scam and will report them to the appropriate Canadian Immigration authorities if they don't leave you alone.
