SBS - Fairfax Investigation Into Alleged Pay-for-Visa Scheme

There's an interesting article in this morning's Sydney Morning Herald concerning a joint investigation by Fairfax Media and SBS Television into an alleged "pay-for-visa" fraud that allegedly involved visa applicants making payments to a company in return for job placements in regional areas, and the company's allegedly making payments to employers for providing jobs to applicants and sponsoring them.

The article can be found at this link: "Million-dollar visa scam leaves migrants $50,000 out of pocket, boss drives Porsche"

The article indicates that there will be further details about the investigation on SBS tonight (14 November) at 7:30 p.m. (on the "Viceland" program and at 11 p.m.

The article appears to confirm the truth of the saying that: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" and confirms the importance to applicants of using only Registered Migration Agents for immigration assistance.
