Why would the US hold a lottery for a green card?
I am from another (European) country, and I see these alluring colorful advertisements about the lottery all around online, like if it would be clearance sale ads:)
I wonder what are the intentions of the american government here? Thank you and warm greetings:)
I think by now habit, originally to increase diversity of immigrants:
The ads are probably trying to scam people out of money. The US government doesn’t advertise the program on the internet. Entering it is free, and it is currently open for a month.
But there are a lot of private enterprise trying to get people to pay them money for entering their data. Some probably really do that, others just are scammers.
