Fraud Prevention

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs' ActionNYC program provides a safe and secure option for every immigrant who needs legal support.

MOIA also combats the unauthorized practice of immigration law (UPIL) through a partnership with the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) to bring renewed focus to this issue. Visit the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs website for tips on how to avoid fraud when working with an immigration legal services provider.

The Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs is also part of a task force formed by the Mayor and NYS Attorney General to combat fraudulent activity.
