We have recently been alerted to a UK visa scam targeting residents of Australia, pretending to be sent by the British Consulate in Sydney.

Criminals around the world often use scams and tricks to try and gain money from individuals.

Often these criminals pretend to be one of our Embassies, High Commissions, Consulates or UK Visas and Immigration centres.

To find out more about visa fraud, tricks and scams and what to do or look out for, please read the information on the UK Visas and Immigration website.
