Canadian Visa Expert Review

Don’t trust Canadian Visa Expert with your money.

Reviews like the one above are not uncommon when it comes to Canadian Visa Expert.

There are claims that Canadian Visa Expert has scammed people trying to immigrate to America and now there is a possibility that they are trying the same tactics on people hoping to move to Canada.

Mistakenly trusted by many, Canadian Visa Expert has allegedly  embezzled money from countless people for years. On November 4 2014, Canadian Visa Expert received their 100th complaint, yet this seemingly corrupt institute is still up and running and manages to take and take without giving anything back.

100th complaint

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.CNV

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 possibly 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.

Video “testimonials”

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.

facebook fraud

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 could be 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.

Conclusion:

Be very careful if you choose to use Canadian Visa Expert as they are seen to be a possible scam company.

    bonjour, moi aussi j’ai été arnaqué de plus de 178.000 euros, je l’ai rencontré sur Meetic un site de rencontres, il est parti soi-disant en Côte-d’Ivoire à Abidjan pour travailler (photographe), il vit dans un hôtel, et bien sûr il s’est fait agressé en sortant de cet hôtel, plus d’argent, plus de papiers, plus cartes bancaires, donc je l’ai envoyé plus de 2.000 euros plusieurs fois pour qu’il puisse rentrer en France, mais il avait toujours une bonne excuse pour ne pas rentrer, et il prend plusieurs personnalités (noms, villes), il est toujours sur Meetic, maintenant je sais le reconnaitre et je ferais attention maintenant,J’ai senti l’arnaque et je lui ai dit que c’est de l’arnaque. Il m’a appelé jusqu’à 10 fois la même nuit pour pleurer au téléphone me disant qu’il était amoureux de moi et qu’il ne pouvait pas croire que je le traitais ainsi, lui qui croyait en Dieu, comment pouvais-je le traiter d’escroc sans scrupules. Les appels continuaient jour et nuit, tantôt d’un soit disant médecin, Armel Leroy, une autre fois d’une personne de la banque etc…C’est alors que j’ai téléphoné à Interpol de France Lyon pour faire une plainte,mais heureusement j’ai expliqué ce problème tous le problème a Interpol du Lyon qui ma fait prendre contact avec un Inspecteur Général de police Interpol qui depuis l’Afrique qui coordonnais des actions avec l’interpole de la France Lyon et le regroupement du CDEAO pour un remboursement immédiat. Et grâce à lui on ma remboursé la totalité de mes 90.000€ qu’on m’avait arnaquer y suivi des frais de dédommagements du double au triple , J’ai bien eu de la chance car j’ai échappée belle a cette crise. À partir de ce instant j’ai dès lors reprise confiance en moi et ne cherche plus d’embrouille sur les sites de rencontre parce qu’il n’y a pas de vérité en tout çà.
    Alors si vous avez été arnaqué sur la toile d’une : grosse somme d’argent, d’achats non conformes à la photo, de virement bancaire, de chantage sur le net, de faux maraboutage et faux compte,paypal, de fausses histoire d’amour pour soutirer de l’argent, de vente de voiture, de gay et lesbienne et de faux tirage a la loterie etc….., si vous le contacté, il trouvera facilement vos escrocs grâce a un système GPS WALO WALO et une fois qu’ils seront arrêtés grâce a leur systeme WALO WALO car j’ai suivi vraiment leurs instructions et sa a marché pour moi .Je remercie beaucoup LE LIEUTENANT DE POLICE MR GEORGES MÜLLER sans lui je serais sans doute à la rue car j’avais épuisée toutes mes économies pour ses voleurs . Pour touts ceux ou celles qui ont été dans le même cas comme moi voici l’adresse émail du LIEUTENANT DE POLICE MR GEORGES MÜLLER.

    Beware of this company. I have been getting unsolicited email, calls and voicemails for 6 months now despite only inquiring about the service. I have asked to be removed from the call list several times but to no avail.

    This is a SCAM. Do not use this service

    • DTE says:

      Yes they are scammers. But don’t give up to recover your money.
      In my case, fortunately I got my money back after 1 month approx. because after 24 hours I’ve gave them my credit card information I received an email with an authorization to debit money from my bank account and I supposed to sign this, but at that time I ‘ve read all negative reviews and obviously I didn’t sign. So I claimed my money explaining them that I never signed that authorization, and they practically stole the money because I trusted them giving my credit card information and they initially told me that they could return just 40% of 1224 $ but I called them every day to customer service asking information about my case and asking to solve the problem with their lawyers, at the same time I wrote them many mails complaining and telling them that they stole my money and it doesn’t look trustable about their service.
      Finally they returned my money. So keep trying to get back your money.

  5. DTE says:

    Hi everybody, I’m very worried because unfortunately I was scammed by CVE as you.
    The way they act is the same. In my case they asked me for 1224 dollars and mi sixth sense didn’t work :( x(
    I already wrote them to ask my money back. Hope this will work ;( ;( ;(

  6. swati says:

    Thanks a lot, I had a hunch after speaking to their representative about them being fake, so when they ask for credit card details , I was sure not to give instead search about them. Thanks to the efforts of this website….I was right.

      Hi, Have you had any luck! What did you end up doing? What happened? Please advise! I am so scared and I have put a lot of money into this already.

  8. Amy says:

    I’m just interested as to what all these people believe the meaning of the word scam is… let’s start with the start of my call with Canadian visa experts.. first they asked questions to see if I was qualified. As I have a BA in education they said I was qualified. Then they asked me for the first 6 numbers of my card. When I asked the girl explained it was the bank identification number and I googled what this was and she was right, it’s an internationally recognized thing. So I gave her the 6 number because honestly anyone with a basic education should no that you cannot steal any money with only first 6 numbers. Then when it started to get real I ask her to prove they were a real company. They guided me to the iccrc website which is the Canadian government immigration lawyers register or something and gave me all their numbers and showed me their website. I then thought why not and paid the amount of 1024$. I got emailed a receipt and they were in contact with me the whole time updating my application and letting me know the status. I don’t understand why you people keep throwing the word scam around, I’m sure if you listen properly and researched you would understand what is happening. They are registered under the government, they provided a legal receipt and I received the legal service they told me I would get.. Like honestly could someone please comment and tell me what the scam is? I honestly don’t understand what is fraudulent about the service.. I would like to know some actual facts before I continue with the company..

    I have totally upset with CVE and it’s parent company USA FIS.Since year 2006 I’m applying usafis and I paid over 1000 usd for them for USA green card,but I have t sucessfull , I do t have any clues about they really submit our application behalf of us or not.it seems some One willingness to pay them they try to keep them not sucess and try to take. Only for next year.
    Then for Canada visa Expert is another culprit,they explain nice heaven story and too much appreciate you’re expierinces etc. Then they take over 5000 usd for evalauation and all at the end they ask to do IELTS even three time done you take the results either bit less for IELTS 6 for each criteria but three time done even you take more than 6 in three areas and one s 5.5 they divert you to other provisional and then introduces lawyer.
    Lawyer is like judge he always saying this is not sucess, we cnat decide it’s goverment etc.. after they submit pap,i action they ask you find job or blood relations in province else you won’t sucess.the real points provinsiol need is too very high Becuace you have master degree, IELTS 6 overall and 15 years expierinces even you can’t win that race.
    Also Lawyers And cvs are not fair enough to get sucess you.
    I have worked in many foreign employment with very hard life in 10 years, and local,native country 7 years, I have three degrees and final as master degree, I paid to usafis and CVE and thier Lawyers over 9000 usd and for IELTS my self and Wife over 2000 usd in 4 times but I loss my all tries due to their very poor service and guidance.
    My earned money was very hard, and I hve suces sin many countries doing work over decades, and also two years suffering contractless situations ue to overseas and local worked make some issues in job demand due to expertises area.
    This is real hard time while CVE failure to gave result on me.and now facing financial trouble too to cater two kid family.
    So beware and get guarenteed with those experts legally before you pay.otherwise you will loss youre hard earned money and time also when you faces job recession time you don’t have any savings to overcome situations even you are expert,qualified as well as Ling time served 8n industry.thia is totally chaos and forced bad situations.

    i applied for Canada PR IN 2015 But they took so much time and then they rejected .

  12. Ricardo Rocha says:

    Hello guys!! I ended up talking to the Canadian Visa Expert about immigration. They opened the home page so I could fill out the form.
    After I’ve seen so many bad comments about them … I ended up asking them to cancel the process and cancel the card amount, but the Canadian does not want to cancel … maybe they’ll give me a discount so I can continue the process. But how mistrust arose and seems to be very serious.
    Could someone help me how could I proceed in this case? Is there any way to bar this collection since they are not really a consulting company and yes they are trying to deceive people more? What should my assignment be?

    I was scammed by Canadian Visa Expert and I am now in the process of filing a complaint. A guy contacted me. His name was Gabrielle Marsh. After speaking with him he assured us that it would cost $2000 from start to finish. When we got through paying that Marsh disappeared and a woman by the name of Mia Morgan contacted us and said that we needed to pay even more money. They have refused to refund our money, saying that they could only give us a $700 discount, but still had to pay more money. In the end we got scammed out of $3000. Don’t let that happen to you!

  19. Masih says:

    I wonder how such fake companies can advertise in instagram!. They called me and said i have to pay 819$ to start my application, even asking for credit card number. I noticed that this was strange so i said i am busy now and hang up on them! later on they sent me email today (12.03.2017), saying I can register for only 15$ and the email was send from this email :mnnnynyqptsblnwtbqylsmjptnnnnztntqtcmtzkccwqkyqknmyj@canadianvisaexpert.net!
    Now seeing this news I just got sure

  20. Tony says:

    I had a similar experience, and I do believe this is a scam. Naively I gave them the information about myself and family and they charged me US$840 off my credit card. Later they called saying I qualified for everything and wanted me to pay another US$1250 to complete a double application. I told them I did not have that type of money so he said to pay a part. I told him no. So he hung up. I changed my credit card information with the bank and recovered some of the money. He called himself George Johnson.

    I just a call from them also and talked for an hour. I was almost got duped by their tactics and sweet words. Thankfully, my credit card company, which is Citibank, didn’t allowed the transaction to go through and called me right away to inform me. And then I checked this website if it is really a scam and it turned out to be true. God, these people are so mean.

  23. Donna says:

    • Jay says:

      Hello Edward,

      I got exactly the same experience today Sunday 19.6.2016.
      I confirm that this whole idea is suspicious.

      • Wan Norafli says:

        Ive got exactly the same call ( 18.5.2017 ) – same language ( praising how qualified I was and that I need to move to Canada as soon as possible ) – but instead they asked me to pay a whopping $2804 USD .
        Since they were “praising” me too much – I realize that something was wrong. I told them I will think about it and they passed me to a different person ( still trying to convince me ) .

        At the end I hung up …. directly google search “Canadian Expert Visa Fraud” and found this page.
        I am super glad my 6th sense kicked in …..

    • SK says:

      Just today I got the same experience after filling the form. Received a call from a person called Sam and then passed the phone to his manager Adam trying to convince to make the paying of USD 1512. When asked to give 24 hour time to think about it, they started pressuring me to make the payment immediately.

  29. Julian says:

    You can be completely sure, they are scammers. They Call me a day after I filled a short form form Twitter; The guy said that his name was Joseph or something like that (without giving his last name). The call lasted something like an hour, I´m a young man from Colombia, looking for new chances to grow up, and give my family new opportunities, So I decided to listen to him, I gave him all my personal information including the name of my children (What a fool you will say) But, when you really are dreaming with something better you don’t think clearly, besides this scammer don’t give the time, he told me something that I still remember: ” Julian just relax, give me your credit car number, we are professionals, I have family too, this is your big chance” … They sent me an email with information for payment, saying that I still had to pay $700US, When the call finished i received a message from my bank, They stole me, $300US, in Colombian pesos are $900.000COP a lot of money for me, 1 mont of work. They had the nerve of saying me by other mail that I had a due with them for other $400US.

    Let me give you a free advice, take care of your money, If you want to move to Canada be patient and make the correct choices. Prepare your own CV, save some money, study the customs, read about the country and prepare your self because is something like traveling to other new world.

    Good Luck, sincerely Julian.
