ALERTA/ALERT: ¡Por favor, tenga cuidado con los estafadores que intentan defraudar a las personas con seres queridos en detención de inmigración! Algunas personas se han hecho pasar por Envision Freedom Fund, Brooklyn Community Bail Fund (BCBF) y otros fondos de fianzas de inmigración, incluso utilizando órdenes de fianza falsas o pidiendo que las personas proporcionen información falsa. Envision Freedom Fund nunca cobrará dinero ni honorarios ni pedirá que se le devuelva el dinero. Aunque algunas familias se unen a nosotros para contribuir al pago de una fianza, nunca pediremos transferencias de dinero a través de Western Union, Moneygram, Ria o Zelle. Tampoco le pediremos nunca que proporcione información falsa, ya que eso podría afectar a un caso de inmigración. Póngase en contacto directamente con Envision Freedom Fund si tiene alguna pregunta o duda. // Please be aware of scammers trying to defraud people with loved ones in immigration detention! People have impersonated Envision Freedom Fund, Brooklyn Community Bail Fund (BCBF), and other immigration bond funds—even using fake bond orders or asking that people provide false information. Envision Freedom Fund will never charge money or fees or ask to be paid back. While some families do join us in contributing to a bond payment, we will never ask for money transfers via Western Union, Moneygram, Ria, or Zelle. We will also never ask you to provide false information as that could impact an immigration case. Please contact Envision Freedom Fund directly if you have any questions or concerns.
