Beware of internet scammers, British High Commissioner warns visa applicants

British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis on Wednesday warned applicants in India about visa scammers making rounds on the internet, who are using his name to beguile Indian nationals seeking UK visas.

“I am seeing an increase in visa scams, using my name. Be suspicious: If it sounds too good to be true – such as an easy job in the UK, or a way to get a UK visa quickly and easily. If you are guaranteed a visa to the UK using documents the scammer provides,” British High Commissioner Ellis said in a tweet.
