Faking Farming and 2nd Year Visa

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 11:35:12 GMT

I've read about people paying farmers to sign them off and also about people just filling in the form and saying they've done the work and getting an ABN number and postcode on it. Obviously it's risky, but I do wonder how many the authorities actually check. ... [Posted by jameserob - Oct 03, 03:35]
