The Bureau of Immigration has issued a warning against a syndicate that has duped at least one victim who paid them P350,000 for a U.S. visa that turned out to be fake.

 

Sun.Star Online reports a woman was intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport before she could board a flight to San Francisco, California. Immigration officers found that her U.S. visa was counterfeit.

 

"Our immigration officers are capable of detecting these fake visas as all of them underwent training in fraudulent travel documentation," Immigration commissioner Ricardo David Jr. said in the report.

 

According to the BI, the victim paid a certain Cely Reyes P350,000 to ’fix’ her application. David said victoms are "made to believe that they would get their US visas without the need to appear for interview before a US consul at the American embassy."
