Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi everyone 24 November 2010 was a red letter day for registered migration lawyers, agents and visa applicants - it marked the first successful proceeds of crime action for migration fraud, sending a strong warning that illegal operators in the migration industry will not be tolerated. A Western Australian woman was ordered by the District Court to pay the Commonwealth $50,000 for allegedly practising as an unregistered migration agent. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) launched an investigation into the woman after receiving a complaint from one of her clients. The woman was found to be acting without accreditation as a migration agent for dozens of individuals or businesses on temporary skilled migration matters. DIAC says that people with information about migration scams or illegal operators should phone DIAC’s Dob-In Line on 1800 009 623 or visit the department’s website: www.immi.gov.au/contacts/forms/services/services-form.htm Source: Media Release, Minister for Immigration and Citizenship “Migration fraud will not be tolerated” 24 November 2010
