Suthers goes after another immigration service

By Charles Ashby

Attorney General John Suthers' office reached a settlement agreement today with a Colorado Springs business that offered immigration services in the state, requiring the business to pay a $20,000 restitution to its clients.

The company, Simply Done Immigration, had been selling immigration documents that people otherwise could have received for free from the U.S. Center for Immigration Services, a government program, Suthers' office said.

According to Suthers' office, the company falsely claimed that customers would receive help from specialists who actually turned out to be sales staff. The company was charging fees ranging from $300 to $1,000 for documents consumers could have gotten for free at www.uscis.gov.

The office also said the company was trying to make it appear it was associated with the federal government.

Suthers said the company's business model was similar to another Colorado Springs firm, Immigration Center. The attorney general won a suit against that company in 2009, winning a $2.5 million default judgment.
