Whoa, don't get too excited yet. In your previous threads you were told that you would probably need to re-train, and you'd need a sponsor. Did you fill in an online form and it told you your GC would arrive by first class post? You were also warned about agencies. Why Tennessee now, when you were so dead set on Texas previously?

Sorry to be so negative but I see red flags unless there's something you haven't told us.

I'm confused. Here is your previous thread: http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=749104

Just one month ago, you didn't even know what visa to apply for to work in the USA. Now it's only one month later and you've managed to apply for a green card? How did that happen?

You say you've passed the first step. What was that step, can you explain?

An agent is going to contact you? That just sounds odd. If you're paying an agency to help you get a green card, you're likely to be ripped off. If you need professional assistance, you should consult with an immigration attorney only...not an agent or agency.

A green card (permanent resident card) is something you apply for from within the USA. You're saying during this past month you've managed to get a visa to come to the USA, and are now inside the USA applying for your green card? Almost impossible to do, and very confusing.

Can you please be more specific as to how exactly you are obtaining a Green Card?

What happened to Dubai...last week you wanted to moved there?

I'd join you but I don't care for popcorn. Move along please as I don't like the smell of it either.

Not that any one keeps track and reviews you, but could you provide us with your Facebook password so that we can thoroughly vet you, before answering any further questions.

p.s. Have you considered moving to Britain, I hear they have very bad teeth.

How many steps are there? Has this 'agent' told you you will definitely get a green card and if so, how exactly?

I doubt he'll be back... it's only now that he's beginning to realize what a fool he's been and that he won't get his money back.

Either that or he's nothing more than a troll.

Still, it might be entertaining. I'll put the coffee on!

I bet the first step involved handing over some money, we could all pass that one.

Those of us in Knoxville are dusting off the welcome banners and planning a street party just in case.

This coffee you say you have... Did you apply for it? Through an agent? What was the first step? ...
