Chile Visa Fraud Warning on the Internet

Post by admin » Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:41 pm

The Chilean foreign ministry is publishing this warning about a company offering fake work contracts and fake stamps of the consulate:
Advertencia sobre intento de fraude en California

8 de junio de 2011

La Embajada de Chile informa a la comunidad chilena residente en Estados Unidos que el Consulado General en San Francisco ha detectado un intento de fraude por parte de una supuesta compañía establecida en dicha ciudad denominada Altiplano LLC, la cual ofrece vía internet contratos de trabajo en Chile para que se desempeñen como Asistentes de Venta con un salario de US $ 1.800.

Los contratos de trabajo tienen estampado en la última página un timbre supuestamente del Consulado General de Chile en San Francisco que dice “Aprobado” y figura el nombre y el cargo del Cónsul General, el Sr. Rolando Ortega Klose, junto a una firma que es absolutamente falsa.

Toda la información relacionada con esta compañía es falsa, incluyendo la dirección que figura en el contrato, su Director General, Gerente, Número de Identificación del Empleador y firma, tratándose claramente de un intento de fraude, por lo que se ruega tomar todas las precauciones del caso para evitar que sean engañados. En ningún caso proporcione los datos de su cuenta bancaria.

Los datos de esta supuesta compañía son:

Nombre: Altiplano LLA
Dirección: 555 California Street Bsmt, San Francisco, CA 94104, Estados Unidos
Director General: Stuart Freedman
Employer Identification Number (EIN): 22-5651091
Gerente: Dolores Smith, doloressmith@altiplanoshop.com

We seem to get a steady stream of people through the forum reading various "get a visa in Chile the easy way" scams involving work contracts. THE CHILEAN GOVERNMENT KNOWS ABOUT THESE SCAMS AND IS LOOKING FOR THEM.

They are not just scams, they are pyramid schemes. When one person gets caught, everyone they have obtained a visa for (real or fake) gets caught.

For gringos, with economic means, there is no reason at all to even play around with one. Follow the rules, do the bureaucratic shuffle, and you can get a real legit visa to work or live in Chile most times a hell of lot cheaper than these scams costs.
