Fake Emails About Greencard Lottery – USCIS Issues Warning


The Diversity Visa Lottery, commonly referred to as the greencard lottery, was established in the 1990 Immigration Act to give an additional opportunity to natives from eligible countries to immigrate to the United States, apart from the regular routes of immigration. The Diversity Lottery or the DV Program makes 55,000 immigrant visas available to people who come from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. Out of this, 5000 is allotted for use under NACARA beginning with DV ’99.

The State Department conducts the lottery every year, and randomly selects approximately 110,000 applicants from all qualified applications. The State Department selects approximately 110,000 applications as many will not complete the visa process. However, once 55,000 are issued for the year, the DV program is closed.

If you get a visa through the greencard lottery program, you are authorized to live and work permanently in the U.S. You can also bring your spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21 to the U.S. In this program, the U.S. government gives visas through a computer-generated lottery drawing.

A permanent residence visa is generally referred to as green card. Having a permanent residence visa is good for life. Green card holders can also get health, education, retirement, taxation, social security and other benefits. If desired, a green card holder may later apply for U.S. citizenship once he/she meets all the eligibility requirements.

Applicants for the greencard lottery program will no longer be permitted to submit a petition by mail. Instead, the Department requires all applications to be submitted to it in an electronic format, using an Internet website that is specifically available for the submission and receipt of Diversity Visa

Scammers Sending Fraudulent Emails and Letters :

As mentioned earlier, the State Department (DOS) is the authority that conducts this lottery. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) warns immigrants to beware of fraudulent emails telling them they have won the greencard lottery. The Department of State, Office of Visa Services, brings to the notice of the public of a notable increase in fraudulent emails and letters sent to DV program applicants. The scammers who send such fraudulent emails and letters pose as the U.S. government in an attempt to extract money from greencard lottery applicants. All applicants are requested to be familiar with information about greencard lottery (DV) scams provided by the Federal Trade Commission.

Finally, all DV-2012 applicants should check their status online, and will not receive a notification letter from the government agency. The DV Entry Status can be checked at the Department of State secure online site http://www.dvlottery.state.gov from July 1, 2010, until June 30, 2011. Also refer to the additional fraud warning information provided and the frequently asked questions about fraud protection for additional information.

The U.S. Department of State also advises that it will notify winners by only by mail for the DV 2011 lottery. This Greencard lottery is for individuals who applied in 2009. The letter will come from the Department of State. If you don’t get a letter or the website does not identify you as a winner, it means you did not win. Green Card Lottery is one of the best way to get green card.
