Beware: Canadian Visas is NOT the same as Canadian Visa!
If you were not careful, it would be very easy to confuse canadianvisas.org with the website canadianvisa.org. After all, the only difference is that one says “visa” and the other says “visas” in their name. However, that’s where the similarities stop, because while canadianvisa.org (read our review about them here) is a legitimate immigration consultancy, canadianVISAS.org is a potential scam pretending to be the same company.
Another Stolen Name?
The well-known scam site USAGC Organization, is not only ripping people off but also stealing legitimate company names in order to rip people off.
USAGC Organization is the scam that isn’t ready to call it quits. The popular scam site has now decided to use a well-established immigration agency’s name for its own con. After stealing the name CanadianVisa.org – USAGC Organization came up with the creative CanadianVISAS.org.
Because of the similar names, people tend to think that CanadianVisa.org (legitimate company) is the same as CanadianVISAS.org (possible scam). They are in no way similar or affiliated with each other. USAGC Organization just added an “S” to make it seem different and creditable.
A site within a site
Masked by the new site CanadianVISAS.org, there are three other possible scam sites embedded within the site. CanadianVISAS.org has OV Canada, OV Australia and the other popular scam site USAGC Lottery Service under its belt.
What people think is a link to learn more about the Canadian Visa Application – is actually just the OV Canada website. The site leads you to the ghost website of OV Canada where clients can fill out their information. In addition, when you click on the USA Green Card Lottery link – it directs you to the USAGC Lottery Service, a well-known scam site. When you click on the Australia Live and Work Application, it takes you to another popular scam sign-up site – OV Australia.
The original website – CanadianVISAS.org doesn’t have different languages, but the back end sites (OV Canada, OV Australia, and USAGC) have different languages – 10 languages to be exact.
This so called immigration agency doesn’t even try to create a proper site with only one video and a few pictures.
The video posted on the website is from the “MrCedarCottage” YouTube page. If this truly was a CanadianVISAS.org video, why isn’t it posted on a CanadianVISAS.org YouTube Page? It just looks like the video was stolen and is being passed on as “CanadianVISAS.org” video. The “Canadian Work Visa” video also has an IMMA Group logo on, although it looks like they got it from google and added it to the video.
At the bottom of the page one can see that the site is created on WordPress and it even shows the theme it is using. It shows a log in portal and we suspect that this gives hackers the perfect opportunity to hack the site.
The “About Us Page” is also a “Contact Us Page” and it doesn’t say anything about the business or who they are. It just has a contact us form that a client should fill in, which probably leads to the unreliable sites. There is no company address or contact number and there are no social media pages or blogs.
The CanadianVISAS.org logo appears as if it was taken from Google images – not exactly professional.
Nothing about this site looks like it was planned or thought through. It looks like a sloppy rush job that we recommended people should stay away from.
