Notario Fraud – Step Forward LA
As you may have seen, there is a lot of immigration-related news coming from various sources today. In order to combat misinformation and false promises regarding potential immigration changes, which can cost victims thousands of dollars, jeopardize their immigration status, and even result in their criminal prosecution, please see Mayor Garcetti’s “Notario Fraud” webpage at Notario Fraud – Step Forward LA (lacity.org).
This resource page was recently updated to include information on how to identify legal services and notario fraud, how to avoid such fraud, helpful tips, where to find a trusted lawyer or accredited representative in the City of Los Angeles, and where to report immigration legal services fraud. We have made this information available in accessible flyers, in English and Spanish, that you can download and print.
