Never trust WWICS
WWICS Immigration Company is a BIG Cheat!
Never hire their services for any kind of immigration; or else you will end up in soup
Following are Real Life Experiences of people hired services of WWICS…
Dear Friends, I am just wondering, can we do any thing on this? I thought these following mails can be eye-opener for many a Indians falling prey to immigration company like WWICS. So I am re-posting these messages from WWICSclients group@Yahoo. Please send in your thoughts on this… - Anand

Hope I have to say hi Bakaras… Any how let me tell introduce myself to oyu as a client of WWICS (not at all proud about that), who had coem here a month back, dreaming about a career in Canada, that too with WWICS.
I am Rakesh Garikapati, Filed my case with WWICS, Hyderabad in 2001 and had got a success now and had landed up here. My suggesstion to all the bachelors of WWICS Clients to marry soon as it would be diffcult for you to pay fee to WWICS for sponsering your Spouse. Amazed to know, you must be under the impression of how can taht be, when WWICS had told you that you will get a free service to all the dependents of yours? Well that is only that they tell you, but in Black and White it will be different, and after coming here they will ask you to pay Cnd$ 1100 as a fee to WWICS, to sponser your spouse. And this fee is now, and it may increase later on. So, think about it and if your brach office has told you taht they will take care of your spouse or family better take it in writing.
The reason why they are charging is, they got only one thing to say, that now you are here, your file is closed and if you want to sponser your wife after your marraige you may need to pay for it as you are no longer a client. Back in India, my marraige was fixed and, WWICS office in Hyderabad has suggested me to goto Canada, collect PR Card an dcoem back for marraige an dsponser her from Canada. I had asked tehm to sponser her from India, they told taht it would take a long time and also they will never suggest it to do as even my immigration status may be rejected. So, what is that we expect from a consultant, we feel they suggest us soem thing good, but not soem thing which gains profit to them. So, that is it, be very careful with WWICS, ask every thing in Black and White.
As a WWICS Client, many had come here by paying the same amount and that too with their family, but, my case is different, I may need to pay Cnd$ 1100 extra, because I am marrying afetr I land in Canada, it doesnt matter even if I am marrying after just 2 months of landind here. (That is what my case is also.)
I had asked an appointment with Mr. Sandhu, to request him regarding the same. I had called them they had kept me on hold for 15 min, then I spoke to 5 different persons whom I don’t know, and they had given an appointment afetr a week days. When I had requested for an appointment after 2 days the lady speaking to me told that she will call me back after 5 min, which she had not even after 30 min. and then I had again called her and she told me that I can coem today and speak to him. I had come here only to find out that, the lady with whom I had spoken is no longer working with WWICS. They told me taht I can’t have an appointment with Mr. Sandhu, I have to wait for a week more. So, I am frustrated and am giving this mail right from their office only.
So, think about it Mr. Sandhu is so busy taht he can’t give an appointment even to his client for a 15 min. and being a client you may need to wait for a week to get his appointment. If you still belive in them it is upto you, if you have doubts on them stop your friends are anybody coming accross you to stop filing the case with WWICS and ask them to apply on their own by going through the GOvt Offcial web site
More over think about the money you are paying to GPS Canada, ask how many clients were settled because GPS had shown them a Permenent Job. They can provide you a temporary job but never evr can they provide you a Permenent Job. For getting a temporary job (WWICS Calls it a Transisional Job) you don’t need WWICS, you can walk tohrough any of the placement agencies in Toronto, they will be nothing less than 2000 such agencies and you will be placed from any of them, that too free of cost, tehy won’t charge you $2100 like GPS had charged you.
Since I am here, if you have any doubts, ask me I can clarify you better than WWICS.
Bye, Rakesh Garikapati

Hello Friends… I too totally agree with Rakesh & Ranodeep. I am sure (i bet) you are going REGRET within a month for taking WWICS service after reaching Canada. WWICS people here are so unprofessional and is sitting here to suck your blood and flesh (all the MONEY). They give all beautiful dreams while we are in India to just ooze out the money from us and behave to you like UNWANTED ANIMALS when you come here and ask for any help (which you are legally entitled to).
Personally I too had these sort of experience from Mr. Parwinder Sandhu and his entire team - they will threaten, scream and shout at you, so that you wont utter a single word against them. Only a handful in GPS like Mujtafa Khan and Afshan is okay. They will put you in hard labour jobs (which requires you to work like donkeys in heavy lifting, packing etc - next day whole of your body will be paining like anything) in the name of transitional jobs and canadian experience
They will give you accomodation on shared basis (sharing bedrooms with 2 to 3 others - usally there will be 6 to 9 people PACKED in a three bedroom apartment), 1 or 2 washroom and a kitchen. The state of these residents are really horrible. You will be asked to clean it regularly, otherwise they will not give back your security deposit. Mind you, a single accomodation with other facilities and food (cooked food is very costly here) as paying guest will cost you only CDN $450 - 500 in Mississauga.
With WWICS, they promise internet, fax and printer in their WELCOME HOUSE…. but you realize it when you come here, there will be only a junk computer with frequently disturbed net connection, NO FAX, NO PRINTER. Recently I understand that WWICS is not having any Welcome Houses at all. In fact they are hiring other people (the name is OUTSOURCING) to rent apartment in distant places (which usually cost only cdn $ 1000 a month) and jampack the unlucky INDIAN BAKRAS.
And if you compalin or request, the property manager just bunks. You will see him only when you are ready to leave the place. And mind you, he will be standing in front of you with a list of recoveries so that you will not get your security amount. The ERC they are giving us after reaching here is another BIG BLUNDER…. not of any use at all and you loose 1 week of your precious time.
PR card application (this is free) is usally made automatically at airport by the authorities. If you give the WWICS address, the imigration officer usally reject your request and ask you fax the application with your own address. SIN card is done at any HRDC centre in Canada free of cost. Bank Account (which is also free) is also easy if you go to any bank and show your landing papers and current residence address.
WWICS shows off (gimmicks) to you that these are done out of their mercy - RUBBISH LOT!!! Govt of Canada is spending a lot of money to help newcomers here. If you go to any city, you will find a lot of “newcomer information centres” and “new comer assisstance centres” which is of BIG eyeopener to you! Then you will realise the ways WWICS cheating you.
In any case they jumbled up my resume and a counselor (these are original Canadian people, and not like the imposters sitting in WWICS office in Canada) at one of the newcomer assisstance centres helped me to correct it and fetch a good job. At the time of application, they promise you that your family’s case will be processed free of cost. But when you land here and ask for the same they will charge you CDN $ 1100.
WWICS COMPANY IS CHEATING US - THE INDIANS... WE ARE BEING FOOLED - WE ARE INFACT MADE “BAKRAS”
ALL OF WE SHOULD REACT TO THIS BULGARY…. I AM THINKING OF INFORMING THE CANADIAN AUTHORITIES HERE. AND ALSO TO INITIATE A LEGAL ACTION. WHAT YOU SAY? - Ashok Nair
Do Not USED WWICS they are just Cheat people, only Very Big Name. I have paid 1200 US $ no result, even they have send wrong froms to CIC New Delhi. Use any other service if you like to migrate Canada
dont waste ur hard earned money these agents like wwics cant do anything for u they just fill u forms by taking details from u.do it urself if u cant do it ur self than u dont deserve to immigrate.
Dont waste ur time and money thru WWICS and above all spoil ur case. if ur case is straight forward dont look for agents they r only money making machines charge money from u for just filling ur forms, secondly embassies dont like cases put up thru agents like WWICS
although there is nothing wrong appling thru agents. if u have any questions regarding canadian immi u can ask me i`ll help u as a good buddy so far i hv helped 9 ppl in filing their case totally in kind ( no fee at all)...cuz i myself is a sufferer.

The WWICS is a cheat. They take your money and before you pay your money they will call you everyday.
Once you pay if you call 1000times and email million times, no one will respond.
The guy who worked with you will not work in anymore. They are a big scam and they need to be reported to canadian government.
I lost lots of money and they donot send any reply and and they do not do anything besides collecting money
I recently got a fraud letter from the so called WWICS group, offerng me to immigrate to Canada. After having posted a penpal ad! I definitely don't trust them, and I definitely wish that nobody else does.
CBI recommends action against Sandhu and WWICS on FOREST HILL CASE
In the report, a copy of which is in possession of Newsline, the CBI has recommended prosecution of accused Lt Col B S Sandhu (Retd); J S Samundri, IFS, the then Divisional Forest Officer, Ropar; Harsh Kumar, IFS, the then Deputy Conservator of Forests, Planning and Investigation, Hoshiarpur; K B S Sidhu, IAS, the then Chief Administrator, PUDA; Rajiv Bajaj, Estate Officer, Forest Hills Resort and M/s WWICS Private Limited.
Another example of how much BIG a fraud Sandhu is:
"Harpal Singh was shocked when he got a phone call last week from his father, Ajya, in Phagwara, India, urging him to vote for a Conservative candidate in his Mississauga-Brampton South riding. His family back home couldn't care less about Canada's federal election, the 32-year-old Brampton truck driver said, but were told by their local member of parliament in Punjab, Jander Singh, to support Parvinder Sandhu in [Mississauga-Brampton South], where 15 per cent of the population is South Asian [according to the 2001 census, immigrants actually comprised 53% of the riding's population -- three years ago]. ... Harmail Kaur, an executive member of the Ontario Khalsa Darbar Sikh temple, said people have complained about receiving voice messages and hearing on Punjabi radio programs in Toronto — on CJMR 1320 and CIRV 88.9FM — Indian officials 'implying their associations' with Sandhu's family, and saying that 'they are good people.' The officials, according to the complaints, included Punjab's chief minister, Amrinder Singh, his officer Bikramjit Singh Sandhu, and a member of the legislative assembly, Ranjit Singh Talwandi. Although the phone messages did not explicitly tell people to vote for Sandhu, they referred to the voters' relatives in India and Sandhu's good reputation there. ... Sandhu, 33, came to Canada as a teenager, and his family runs the largest immigration consulting company in Canada's South Asian community, WWICS." (Toronto Star, June 26, 2004) In any event, Navdeep Bains (the Liberal Sikh candidate) handily won the riding with 57.15%, to Sandhu's (the Conservative Sikh candidate) 24.09%.
