signed me up for e-mail when I didn't want it

Started sending me e-mail about how they thanked me for "signing up" for their services, which would provide, should I pay them $55, a chance to win a lottery and get a green card.

Seeing as I've been a U.S. citizen my entire 47 years on this Earth, I don't think I signed up for this outfit.

Ripoff -- stay away from these crooks.

    cos he can, t afford to complete his application but now
    you can see how he wish to win us permanent residensy through online prifessional support, so i do
    not see anything wrong about that, it can anybody else tommorrow, it might be my turn or even yours
    so i wish this complain deserve to be loooked into and
    see what can be done about it.

refund not done

I entered the Green Card Lottery. I was offered an opportunity for an Australian entry last week, week commencing 4th May. I agreed and the financial transaction went through on my credit card.

I was then advised telephonically the following day that I do not qualify for this offer due to my age. I was promised that they would refund me. I have to date not been refunded.

    I've managed to list greencard lottery, and declared a success. but data have not updated my application, my application has not proven ready. at that time I was sustained by a party Telphone usafis offer VVIP member. I was not so clear with his information and he asked me my credit card is no secret that I think will confirm the data that I fill in the online application form. and I told him (John) that I want to talk or any information through my email, and he promised to say "yes akau will email" but I did not also receive emails, even receive a bill that I have to pay some $ 361 through my credit card . I was very surprised and asked for my money back, and I had time to inquire about the status of my application, it turns out after usafis withdraw money VVIP member, data on my application to be ready.

    I asked for my money back, because I do not need to VVIP member, said it would ditelphone usafis party, it turns out they just gave the discount, and I was forced to withdraw money although they had to cut to the administration, and usafis said, withdrawals can only be done through Telphone, was until this moment there is no Telphone who said how do I withdraw my money, even send an email that they've sent an email about my withdrawal.

    I am confused how to contact usafis, because I Telphone was never appointed.

    thanks natto, I will not surrender for the sake of other victims as well. usafis must answer using their conscience rather than an answering machine. to ask for bank offices to withdraw funds back from usafis it is not possible, because the bank's office had to withdraw funds from a person approved by that person, so as not accused of a theft of money as is done usafis to the victim.

Now I had a call form a lady at 11pm my time,does this lady respect me and my family .She woke up my sleeping child with a call at that hour. Further she did not have the courtesy to ask if it was ok to chat ,she went straight into it to discussion. This was because i had an incomplete web application, which i aborted when it came to personal particulars. Now if I did not complete the info why was I contact.This person breach pricay. I did not consent to that application.

Agent from an assumption that I was interested and outlined my options, the only way i could get her off was to tell her that i do not a credit card and i will do a telegraphic transfer. Now I would like (Manager) to call me in relation to this complaint.I have not completed the entire application. This was aborted. I also did not consent the call. Further you have breached anti spam Usa law.Called after 9 pm with breaches new Zealand Law. Does your company train your staff to ask permission before engaging in a discussion.I am reporting this matter further.

This tactic is not to be tolerated by anyone. This is careless and inconsiderate.

    USAFIS is an application review service provider for those who wish to enter the U.S Green Card Lottery program, and our guarantee is that if people use our service they will definitely be qualified for the program.

    We are proud of our service to our customers and thousands of them actually won the lottery and went to live and work in the United States.

    With kind regards,

    USAFIS provides green card application review service to make sure that green card application is accepted for the lottery process. They never guarantee any green card but they guarantee successful participation in the process. I went through their website, no where they have written that they guarantee a green card, also it is mentioned that this thing can be done for free from the states government travel website. No one can guarantee you a green card.

    Any email that states you have won the Diversity Visa Lottery is fake. The Department of State has never sent emails to notify individuals they have been selected, and The Department of State will not notify Diversity Visa 2012 (DV-2012) winners by email. Emails indicating that you have won the diversity visa are fraudulent. We encourage you to report fraudulent emails to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx)

    Status information for DV-2012 will be available from May 1, 2011, on the Department of State Diversity Visa website using the confirmation information given to you at the time of your entry. If you lose your confirmation information, you will not be able to check your DV entry status by yourself, and we will not resend the confirmation page information to you.

    Some companies posing as the U.S. Government have sought money in order to "complete" lottery entry forms. There is no charge to download and complete the Electronic Diversity Visa Entry Form. The ONLY valid site to register for the Diversity visa is http://www.dvlottery.state.gov/.

    The 2011 and 2012 Diversity Visa entry registration periods have ended. Status information for the most recent Diversity Visa registration period will be available from May 1, 2011.The 2013 Diversity Visa entry registration period will open sometime in Fall 2011.

    Diversity Visa lottery applicants for DV 2010 and DV 2011 who were selected were notified by paper mail between May and July of the next year, following DV Online entry.

    For more information on the proper process for registering for the diversity visa, please visit the following link:

won't leave me alone!

A few months ago, I filled in an online inquiry form for what I thought was for more information. I was not sent more information instead I am sent one to 2 emails per week requesting I complete my registration and make payment. I am at the end of my tether because I have constantly tried using their unsubscribe link, sent angry e-mails and marked the address as SPAM which still arrives in my bulk inbox.

I am losing my mind over these e-mails and it makes me not want to pursue any further inquiries about living and working in the USA.

Beware people!

    Important Notice

    No fee is charged for the electronic lottery entry in the annual DV program. The U.S. Government employs no outside consultants or private services to operate the DV program. Any intermediaries or others who offer assistance to prepare DV entries do so without the authority or consent of the U.S. Government. Use of any outside intermediary or assistance to prepare a DV entry is entirely at the entrant’s discretion.

    The Department of State strongly encourages applicants to complete the application without the assistance of “Visa Consultants, ” “Visa Agents, ” or other individuals who offer to submit an application on behalf of applicants. In many cases, these facilitators substitute their address for an applicant’s address and thereby receive the selection notification instead of it being received by the actual applicant. Subsequently, the visa facilitators extort money from the selectees in order to receive the notification information that should rightly have gone directly to the DV selectee.

    HI Peeeved

    As I said before, our service is mostly for those who do not have a great command of the English language, the proper computer tools, or do not work well with timelines. For a small fee, USAFIS ensures a person's application qualifies for the program.

    All too often, people who register for this wonderful opportunity do not make into the front door due to their application being disqualified. Whether the application was not filled out correctly, a person's photo did not meet the U.S. government standard, or it was submitted too late are just some of the reasons why hundreds of thousands of applications per year never get a chance to qualify for the U.S. Green Card Lottery program.

    USAFIS does charge a nominal fee for it application review service and clearly states on its homepage the differences between their service and if a person wanted to do by themselves.

    On our main page (and many others) there is a chart that shows you the difference between filling out the forms yourself at the Official U.S. Government Program and with us. we do not hide the fact the application is free- we only charge you for the assistance we provide in filling.

    If you had any problems with our services please feel free to contact me directly with your personal details to my direct email [email protected]
