US Government strongly advises to be cautious.
Fraudulent websites are posing as official U.S. government
sites. Some companies posing as the U.S. government have sought
money in order to "complete" DV entry forms. These websites are
designed to appear official, and often have images of the U.S.
flag, U.S. Capitol, White House, or Statue of Liberty. What
these websites and emails are missing is the “.gov” suffix on
their addresses. Remember that anything that does not end with
“.gov” should be considered suspect.
The Department of State does NOT notify successful DV applicants
by letter or email. Entrants can check the status of their
entries, by returning to the website at
to find out if their entry was or was not selected.
The U.S. government will never ask you to send payment in
advance by check, money order, or wire transfer. Only you pay if
you request someone to help you fill out application on line in
your name. Remember that fees for the DV application process are
paid to the U.S. Embassy or consulate cashier at the time of
your scheduled appointment.
Some of these fraudulent organizations may require payment for
immigration and visa services. If payment is made to a
non-governmental source, this payment is not received by the
U.S. government and does not apply toward visa processing.
Sometimes these costs are for information or forms that are
otherwise available for free on official U.S. government
websites. Additionally, these imposter websites and emails
cannot provide the services they advertise and for which they
require payment. For example, many fraudulent emails promise
U.S. visas or “green cards” in return for a large fee. These
non-governmental, unofficial organizations are not able to
provide these services. These services can only be obtained from
official U.S. government entities, such as the Department of
State, a U.S. embassy or consulate, or the Department of
Homeland Security. Finally, be wary of providing any personal
information through these fraudulent websites and emails, since
such action that could result in identity fraud or theft. Visa
applicants are strongly advised to be cautious in all dealings
with non-governmental companies that claim to offer any
assistance in obtaining U.S. visas.
