Stay Alert from Fake Consultancies dealing with Your Canada visa
Big news broke in early March when The Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) issued deportation notices to over 7000 Indian students whose admissions offer letters to the educational institutes were found fake.
What happened to students who were deported from Canada?
As per multiple news sources, a group of students created counterfeit admission offer letters in order to obtain entry into Canada for educational purposes. The situation was brought to the attention of the Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) during an investigation into the student’s permanent residency applications following the completion of their studies.
According to reports from various media outlets, about 700 students had requested study visas through Education Migration Services in Jalandhar. The owner of the visa service agency, charged students approximately ₹16 lakh to cover their expenses in Canada, including admission fees and other related costs. However, airfare and security deposits were not included in his amount. Students who used this Immigration consultancy services and applied for Study Visa in Canada during the 2018-19 academic year came in the eyes of Canadian authorities and were rechecked and confronted.
Now this doesn’t stop here, the agent had charged each student between Rs 16 to 20 lakhs to cover expenses such as admission fees and other related costs.
What did Students do to counter CBSA and what actions did Canadian government take?
When Indian students applied for permanent residency, they presented their “Admission Offer Letter.” However, it was discovered that the letters, which were also used to obtain their visas, were fraudulent. Following the exposure of the fraud, CBSA issued deportation notices to the students.
According to reports, the students enrolled in different colleges and finished their studies. Some of them even obtained work permits, as per the reports. However, it was recently discovered by the CBSA that the admission letters they used were fraudulent. There is no confirmation from Outlook regarding the accuracy of these reports.
There has been no official response from Canadian authorities, but it is reported that they have rejected the victims’ claims of being unaware of the fake admission letters.
