How the scam works:
Many people from US and Canada are going to the World Cup of soccer in Brazil this summer and need to fill out applications to get a Brazil visa. As a US/Canadian citizen, you are required to have one.
Because the process is not that simple, criminals on the internet create fake Brazilian consulate websites and have the victims send their credit card numbers and personal information via these bogus pages.
Needless to say, weeks after, applicants don't receive anything, since the consulate websites are fake.
How to avoid:
Internet is a beautiful thing, but when it comes to information, you should not trust just anybody. If you need help and all the legitimate information about applying for the World Cup visa as a US/Canadian citizen, visit: www.worldcupvisa.org. All the details are real and you're guided how to apply step-by-step.
