Those who qualify for deferred action must be on the lookout for scammers known as “notarios,” who wish to steal money and time from the DREAM-act eligible immigrants. Many notarios claim to hold the same power as immigration attorneys, but that could not be further from the truth. Notarios often claim that they can help their clients through a faster process in receiving visas and green cards but it is all essentially a scam in order to steal money. It is important to note that there is not yet a process in which a person can file for deferred action! Notarios are not attorneys and they cannot help a person who would like to receive deferred action. According to Randall Caudle on http://politic365.com/2012/06/27/dream-act-related-fraud-already-running-rampant/, the only steps an individual can take at the moment are the following:
1.Collect documents that prove you were in the United States before June 15, 2007 and documents that prove you have been living in the United States continuously for the past five years.
2.Collect your passport and birth certificate.
3.Do not commit any crimes.
