      Thread pretty fed up with the british scammers in Florida

      sitting here now for twelve days inside my home which i bought for cash in Vista del Lago and they are repossessing it because i wasnt able to pay ground rent...i wasnt able to pay it due to some pretty unsavoury characters charging some horrific fees for jobs they HAVENT DONE and also renting it out to people so that the bills are horific. everyone on here will be losing their homes thanks to some nasty characters...when i find the strength to get out i will make sure everyone knows NOT to use these couples who come over here and say they will manage ur home cheaply - they cant. dont rent ur homes out. dont use dodgy managers...u will end up with no home and no money!!! 12 days in here now surviving on bread and water....its the only way because i am not allowed to be in my home....

      Not too sure about what it's like for Brit pubs in that area, I haven't been down there too much. You're heading a lot further South than where I'm based. :)
      I'd admire your priorities once you're there though!
      Dear Purple,
      Do you think I will have a problem going into the U.S from Canada with my wife and our household contents in order to find a home at a later date (my American sister has an ongoing petition filed) ?

      Hey 9sheets,

      I'm not sure any of this is making much sense to me.
      So your sister is a US citizen and she has a petition filed for you to become an LPR? Is that what you mean?
      You said before that your wife was a US citizen, so why hasn't she filed the petition for you to become a LPR?
      You and your wife along with your household contents? What in? A truck or something? Too risky without a visa.

      I woudn't try anything like that unless you have the correct immigration paperwork in your hand from the US Embassy.

      Ask your wife to file the petition with the USCIS as soon as possible. You know it makes sense. ;)
      If you were confused with what you need to do, you could contact an immigration lawyer in the US to help you through it.
