If you get a call from someone who claims to be from the government and says that you have lied on your visa application and you need to pay them money or else you’ll be deported, hang up! This is a scam that targets migrants in Australia, especially Indian migrants.
The government will never phone you to demand money. Instead, if they have concerns about how you got your visa, it is most likely they will send you a letter or email to ask you to explain yourself. This is called a Notice of Intention to Consider Cancellation. Even if they do cancel your visa, they will not phone you to ask for money.
If you have received a Notice of Intention to Consider Cancellation or have other concerns about your visa status, contact us today on 08 6161 9239 to schedule a consultation with one of our migration experts.
