Q: Will this affect my green card application?
My friend from China scammed me. He said his business is legit and he asked me to collect payments and send it to him. My bank closed my accounts because of it and deducted money to my other accounts to send the money back to people who marked me as fraud. Will this affect my application to get a green card? I cannot also open a bank account? What will i do?
If this just happened, a Federal investigation may be pending. If you spoke to Federal Officers, then you may be subject to further action in criminal court. This will delay any action and may even result in detention and deportation.
I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, like me, before there are any more complications. All Wisconsin Resident’s are subject to the jurisdiction of the Chicago Immigration Court.
