Beware of "The United States Green Card Organization" Lottery Website - it is a Scam

"The United States Green Card Organization" website located at www.greencardorganization.com is fraudulent. The fraudulent Green Card lottery website is being operated by cybercriminals. The Better Business Bureau, McAfee Secure, Security Standards Council security seals on the website are fakes. Online users are advised not to use the fraudulent website because their credit card information will get stolen by the cybercriminals operating it and used fraudulently.

Please continue below.

"The United States Green Card Organization" Lottery Website at greencardorganization.com

To enter the Green Card lottery, online users should apply only on websites with names ending with ".gov" because they are official U.S. government websites. Other non-governmental websites with names ending with ".com", ".org", or ".net" provide immigration and visa related information and services, but the U.S. Department of State does not endorse, recommend or sponsor any information or material shown on those websites.

Please note that the only official way to apply for the U.S. green card lottery is to apply online at the Department of State website at https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/, and there is no fee to apply. If you have been selected in the green card lottery, you will receive the confirmation by postal mail, and NOT by email. Therefore, if you receive any such email, it is a scam.

It is recommended that you complete the green card lottery online application yourself, rather than through "Visa Consultants" or "Visa Agents" or other facilitators who offer to submit an application on your behalf because many of the websites offering the Diversity Visa (DV) Program extort money from their applicants by withholding their selection notifications that should have gone to the applicants directly in the first place.

The U.S. Government does not employ any 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 them entirely at your own risk.

Remember, some websites may not even provide any assistance in completing the online form or provide any service and just steal your money. Therefore, you should be very careful when sending any personal information to these websites as they might use your information for identity theft or in other fraudulent activities.

    hello,

    I have registered myself and paid 6k. I have been hearing bad things about 'green card organisation' and I just want to make sure I haven't lost all my money. I just asked them to provide me with some legitimate paperwork...still waiting.

    if its a scam is there a way to get the money back somehow?

    thanx for your answers in advance.

        I was a telemarketer. I was only with them for a few weeks, so any info I have is limited. The company works out of Ramat Gan, and hires people with a high level of English to pose as Americans, so the clients think it's a US based company.

        The job of the sales representatives there is to call up people who left their contact info and try to convince them to buy the service. Among the questions they ask is stuff that has nothing to do with the process, such as "what do you plan on doing in the US" and "do you have family in the US", specifically to try to build the client's trust.

        I'm not sure how much info I'd be allowed to share on this thread (since a previous comment of mine that went into more detail was never approved). I will say that "Green Card Organization" is not the actual name and it operates from the Bursa area of Ramat Gan.

          Thanks for the info. Is there anything you can do or any other detail you can give me without violating the rules of this post, like any hint the police might use to find them?

            The cyber criminals are operating in countries where it is hard to find and prosecute them.

    I forgot that all Greencard applications should be made on a page that ends with .gov. I checked my eligibility out of curiosity but was prompted to enter my phone number.

    I didn’t enter my credit card information because I knew the lottery should be free. When I received an email from them, I immediately canceled my subscription. On a Sunday morning I received a phone call from the following number: 1786408524. I made a reverse phone check and found out that the number is listed as fraudulent and high risk. They apparently make the call for voice recognition.

    I did a "free check" whether I am a valid candidate for the process or not. Once I saw the fees and that I should enter credit card infos... I stopped the process and found this website. Actually I just made the "free check" out of curiosity and regret it right now.

    I received a mail that my application isn't yet complete.. Of course since I haven't filled my full data yet. My question is, should I declare that I don't want to use and will not use any of their services and they should unregister me? Or should I just ignore any of their mails in the future?

    Thank you for your advice and hope my info will help as well.

    Best

    I saw yesterday, January, 14th 2018 in my mobil-telephone an advertising from US Green Card Organisation offering the US Green Card.

    I started to apply but when I saw they were asking also for my credit card number, I decided not to apply. I am in the north of Europe and today I got 2 telephone calls from US ? The number is 1 (786) 408-6004. I called back and the machine saids "The US Green Card Organisation .... " I closed my phone.

    They have another telephone number: 1888-433-0135
    and email: Registration@greencardorganisation.com

    Thank you for your advice !

    I hope my information helps others.

    I wrote a while ago, that I gave my personal details to these criminals, but I will add that their commercial was placed on the front page of MSN news feed, right next to official news sources like New York Times, CNN and others. And one link after that you are lured to give your details to criminals. This is just.... If it was on a webpage I would have thought twice before, but on this news feed - you can't even see the link to the webpage. Really, you can't be too careful on the internet.

    I feel very foolish for giving my personal details to these criminals. I searched before I pay luckily, but even with this info they can do harm.

    Hello, I have already paid the organisation (USA Green Card) to register for the green card lottery. I don't want them withholding information from me if I am successful or unsuccessful. Should I register again by myself at the Department of State website at https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/, or will I be penalized for potentially applying twice?

    Many thanks.

    Yes, they are confidence tricksters, scammers and liars. The ISP who supports it should be notified by the FBI and the web site removed. They are praying on vulnerable people around the world. They are cybercriminals.

    How did I fall for this! Be aware everyone! these people will go to any lengths... I reached their site through an authentic news website. I simply wanted to use their calculator to test my odds getting a visa... for the fun of it.
    Next day they are calling me. I answered. We talked for an hour. Everything seemed right! I thought to myself why not. Getting a visa is always an asset.
    But I never knew that human beings can successfully lie so much! I attempted to search for reviews or anything, but your site didn't pop up in time!! Nevertheless thanks for spreading the word.

    I think I have been scammed too... I have been guided by the Green Card Organization and alredy paid a nice some of money“, which I probably lost....
    they keep asking for more money and I have been filling out forms. I feel very uncomfortable right now, after reading this website. How could I fall for this? I should have done more research!
    I guess I lost all this money ($8000,-!!!) and I still have no entry in the DV Lottery? How can I find out what is real at this point? And how to protect my identity?
    Any advice is more then welcome...

      I really feel sorry for your lost. They asked me the same thing, namely my cried-card NO., but I gave them a wrong number, then the guy who speaks in Persian accent talked to me and he said if you don't believe me talk with my boss.

      Then, I was talked with his boss, she was talked in fully USA accent and she said you have to pay now or ever. They are still kept calling me. Fortunately, I made some research before I pay anything.

    I was scammed by the website too. I paid only 79 dollars so it is a small sum. However, I closed all cards, and change all passwords. Lucky all my accounts got two-step verification.

    The support service was helpful until I realised where the money has been paid to in Tel AVIV. I send them 1 verification document, which now I cancelled asap.

    The website is most comprehensively design compared to other scammers. Hence, I got bought into this joke. There is virtually no cyber protection anymore.

    Quite nice, I was scammed by these. And that happened 10 days before this article came out. And I don´t know what should I do in order to get my refund. My bank can´t intervene since it´s against bank policy (they can´t help me if I have authorized the transaction). I have tried few times to contact them, but the numbers provided on their website are only leading to ´´Yellow Pages´´.
    I have already reported them to FBI, and consumer support websites. But I think I have just thrown away 2000 USD into fire.

    p.s.
    I have blocked and changed my credit card, so they don´t have access to my account anymore.
