    It is hit and miss. You can contact the Dept. of Homeland Security or ICE, just make sure you use the proper forms and pay the appropriate fees.

    If someone is seeking immigration status through marriage, the couple has to attend two or more interviews with USCIS to demonstrate that the marriage is genuine enough. So, unless you are the husband or wife of this "fake" marriage, mind your own business.

    As long as the marriage is legitimate and they have the various required documents to prove it, then they have nothing to worry about.
    If they make it through all the USCIS interviews and the immigrant is given status, I don't think USCIS is going to revoke anything due to an unsolicited tip.
    Who knows which reports they take seriously and which ones they ignore. The truth is they have more important things to worry about.
