Scam Alert: Don’t trust Canadian Visa Expert with your money.
Reviews like the one above are not uncommon when it comes to Canadian Visa Expert.
When you get tired of scamming people that want to move to America, why not scam the people that want to move right next door? Canada! Which is exactly what Canadian Visa Expert is doing.
Mistakenly trusted by many, Canadian Visa Expert has managed to embezzle money from countless people for years. On November 4 2014, Canadian Visa Expert received their 100th complaint., yet this corrupt institute is still up and running and manages to take and take without giving anything back.
Who is behind this legal team of “professionals”?
The first red flag thrown up by Canadian Visa Expert’s website is that it gives no indication of who will be assisting applicants, so we do not know if you will be assisted by a qualified immigration lawyer or a qualified RCIC consultant, or if they even are qualified to help with visa applications to start with.
Affiliated with other Scams.
Alarmingly, after doing some research, our team has discovered that Canadian Visa Expert is tied to the infamous USAFIS.org – a notorious American Green Card Lottery spam and scam website, which charges for entry into the Green Card lottery.
How did we discover this? The footer of Expert’s website clearly states they are “owned and operated by the EU company, PRONET Online Marketing GmbH” – the same company responsible for USAFIS.org.
A quick Google search reveals that the company identity of Pronet Online Marketing is an untrustworthy one.
This, plus their affiliation with USAFIS.org (sister site) makes Canadian Visa Expert’s legitimacy very questionable indeed.
Need more convincing?
Search online for “Canadian visa expert review” and the number of negative reviews about this company are frightening. Yet, despite this, their website features a single positive review from 2012, which is odd as most of the reviews about them are negative.
With all the negative reviews about them, it would seem that Expert has attempted some reputation management, or dare we suggest it: fake testimonials.
There are a number of these so-called video testimonials about Canadian Visa Expert showing up on Google.
For example, the testimonial above was made by “Claudia”, and may be authentic. But is it? Watching the other three reviews quickly reveals a common theme: unlike reviews posted elsewhere online, these reviews are all VERY positive and sound more like sales pitches than true experiences.
This woman, apparently Jenny Roberts, keeps looking to the side as if reading a script and does not seem to be very authentic. She claims to have started the immigration process with a lawyer, but changed to Canadian Visa Expert because “things just weren’t moving fast enough”.
She fails to explain just how much faster Canadian Visa Expert was. While she doesn’t say where she was originally from, or how long she has been in Canada for, she has a very strong Canadian accent, which is odd if she really has only immigrated recently. Which we doubt she ever did.
Who is Sharon Visa?
Normally, when there are online testimonials about a company, people either post them on their own accounts, or the company will upload it to the company’s YouTube account.
Oddly, all of Canadian Visa Expert’s video testimonials are hosted on the same account, called Sharon Visa. You’d be forgiven for assuming that the account belongs to one of the people posting the videos. However, reading the single-line description on the YoutTube account’s “About” tab shows that the channel actually does belong to Canadian Visa Expert. Why isn’t the channel CALLED Canadian Visa Expert then?
And why are all comments disabled? Are they afraid of what people may be saying about them?
Dedicated Scam Facebook page
Nothing shouts SCAM ALERT louder than when someone has created a Facebook page dedicated to people who have been scammed by a company.
Canadian Visa Expert Arnaque/Scam FRAUD is an entire Facebook page with well over 1000 likes/followers dedicated to telling people that Canadian Visa Expert is a scam.
If that is not enough to tell you that everything about this company is fraudulent, they are also not a BBB Accredited Business.
How much does Canadian Visa Expert cost?
No one can truly answer this, as the company seems to charge different people different amounts. Rather, you can expect to lose whatever money you do pay, and never see a dime again.
All we can say is SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. Stay away from these frauds!
