Be Aware: Fraudster Impersonating Attorney Dery

Immigration fraud is an unfortunate reality, and the best way to protect yourself is to learn how to identify it. From receiving a fake job offer to being charged for services that aren’t delivered upon, stories of immigration fraud are sadly not hard to find.

Recently we were made aware of a fraudulent actor impersonating Canadim Immigration Lawyer Renaud Dery. Fortunately, the individual reached out to us to verify the legitimacy of the messages. 

Jason Spencer is not affiliated with Attorney Renaud Dery or the Canadim Law Firm. In addition to claiming they are, the individual has been fraudulently impersonating Attorney Dery to take advantage of those interested in receiving an eTA to travel to Canada. 

The contact information provided above is a WhatsApp number with a 325 area code. Our immigration law firm is located in Montreal, Canada and our phone number is +1 514-989-9700.

Canadim representatives communicate with clients about their immigration profile exclusively through email and telephone, and not through social media platforms. All email correspondence from employees at Canadim will be from an “@canadim.com” email address. 

You will never be contacted by a Canadim representative unless you have previously submitted an online immigration assessment, or have subscribed to a Canadim newsletter. 

Finally, always be certain to verify the identity of any immigration representative you are interested in working with. You can verify Canadim Law Firm through our Google Reviews, and can be certain of Attorney Dery’s good standing by finding his registration with the Barreau du Québec

What to do if you think you are a victim of fraud

At Canadim we take immigration fraud very seriously. If you are approached by someone claiming to be a Canadim representative and are feeling unsure, don’t hesitate to reach out to us through our social media channels or email us directly at [email protected] You can also report immigration fraud with the Canada Border Services Agency.
