A little more than one year after a catastrophic earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince and surrounding Haitian communities, scam artists in the United States are targeting survivors with fraudulent promises of new lives as legal immigrants.

The fraud is perpetrated by luring Haitian nationals to pay thousands of dollars for immigration services: from temporary protection status to that of full legal immigrant in the U.S. The scammers, however, are neither the licensed attorneys they purport to be, nor has the federal government accredited them to perform the immigration services that they sell.
