To our community,

We wanted to let you know that we’ve had multiple reports from our community members regarding fraudulent accounts on Instagram and WhatsApp impersonating Moving2Canada. These accounts have been using the names of our team members, our photos, and our videos in efforts to scam others.

Please know that Moving2Canada is a free information resource. We do not provide one-on-one immigration services, nor do we charge job candidates for potential jobs in Canada (in fact, that’s illegal). This means that we will never ask you for money. If someone asks you for money, stating that they’re from Moving2Canada, this is an attempt to fraud you!

  • On Instagram, we’ve seen fraudulent accounts using the handles: moving.2.canadainfo and, presently, canadajob4u.
  • On WhatsApp, we’ve been impersonated by someone using the number: +1(620) 371-4064.

If you are contacted by any of these accounts, please do not reply. For reference, the real Moving2Canada Instagram account is here. We do not have a WhatsApp number.

This account is currently impersonating Moving2Canada on Instagram. Community members who contact the listed WhatsApp number have been asked to pay for job offers — the real Moving2Canada (that’s us) will never ask you to pay for anything!

Finally, please note that there is a high level of fraud in the realm of Canadian immigration. If you’re considering hiring anyone to represent you for immigration purposes, please consult our guide on red flags to avoid when hiring an immigration consultant, or consider working with one of our recommended immigration consultants.

And if you’re looking for a job in Canada, please see our resume guide and then complete a free Moving2Canada profile, where you can upload your resume. We’ll then try to match you with opportunities in Canada, and all for free.
