Please be aware that here are a few schemes going on promising easy routs to legal immigration. One scheme is an offer of "amnesty" or "legalization". THERE IS NO AMNESTY PROGRAM IN EFFECT. If someone is offering amnesty, that is an immediate sign that the offer is a fraud. Another scheme is an email telling you that you have "won" the visa lottery and asking you to send money. If you did indeed "win" the visa lottery, you will receive a letter from the Department of State's Kentucky Consular Center. Communications from any other entity claiming to be the government and asking you for “clearance/acceptance fees” are just attempts to steal your money.
