A representative from the office of Attorney General Paula T. Dow will be present

ASBURY PARK, NJ ― Nosotros/Center for Immigrant Services will hold a public forum regarding immigration service scams on August 11 at 6:00pm at 808 Main Street Asbury Park, NJ.  A representative from the office of Attorney General Paula T. Dow’s office will be present to discuss how to avoid becoming a victim of these frauds, and what the government is doing to combat the growing trend of businesses that offer false services to the immigrant community. 

“Here at Nosotros/CIS, we have seen so many people, families, whose lives have been destroyed because of these fraudulent businesses,” said Cecilia Reynolds, from Periódico Nosotros and the Center for Immigrant Services in Asbury Park.  “As immigrants, we are vulnerable because of cultural and linguistical barriers and people take advantage of this.  We need to empower the immigrant community to protect themselves from becoming victims.”

The forum is free and open to the public, but seating is limited so please call 732-845-1911 to confirm your attendance.  A representative from the Newark office of U.S. Customs and Immigrations will also be present.
