President Zack Statement Re: FTC’s Recent Prosecution Targeting Online Immigration Fraud
Taking advantage of a person’s desperation and lack of knowledge is illegal and simply wrong. The Federal Trade Commission should be applauded for aggressively and creatively pursuing the unauthorized practice of immigration law and notario fraud. The FTC’s actions send a strong signal that our country will not tolerate when those seeking legal help are, instead, being hurt. The American Bar Association strongly supports pursuing those engaging in notario fraud, and will continue our own efforts to educate and protect the vulnerable.
The ABA offers more information and resources on notario fraud here.
