Fraud Detection and National Security. FDNS was created to strengthen the ability of the U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services (USCIS) to provide the right benefit to the right person at the right time, and no benefit to the wrong person.

Fraud Findings Reversed

We were asked to provide a second opinion on a complicated case where the US consulate had denied a green card based upon a finding that the beneficiary/applicant had committed visa fraud where they had earlier misused a visa.  The consulate directed the applicant to file for a waiver (which is quite difficult to obtain).  Note that a finding of fraud is a permanent bar from entering the USA.
