Are you keen in getting the cherished and much sought after Permanent Residence (PR) in Canada, using the popular Ontario Immigrant Nominee Programme (ONIP)? If yes, you need to be on your guard. Even if you are not a candidate, you need to read this news and follow the instructions, and be ‘on the safer side’.
As per some available reports and information, pouring in from some very reliable sources, some members of the society have been getting e-mails with a fake Ontario Certificate of Nomination affixed, demanding a “Right of Permanent Residence Fee” (RPRF).
Such certificates carry the Government of Ontario Logo & the address of 400 University Avenue in Toronto.
You can easily notice the fake activity, via these highly noticeable markers:
What to Do When You Get Such Call or Mail for Payment?
Instantly forward the details to the OINP at ProgramIntegrityTeam@ontario.ca. Also, never give out personal details, like for instance, account numbers, the maiden name of your mother, passwords or other recognizing facts in reply to the uncalled-for e-mails or calls. And, to bring any sort of fraud case to the notice of the concerned officials, get in touch with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by telephone at 1-888-495-8501, or via their website: http://www.antifraudcentre-centreanitfraude.ca.
Be alert, lest you are taken for a ride and robbed of your hard-earned money by the impostors promising you PR in Canada–when in some of the cases–you may not have even asked for it in the first place!
