WWICS victim- ()     03/25/2010 11:50 AM
 


Dear All,

If you have to apply for immigration or any other VISA service please DO NOT (NEVER EVER) choose WWICS. They are the biggest cheat and frauds. They have mishandled many cases which means rejections from consulates and they do not pay the money back also. There is no professionalism at their office also and you can often see the receptionist singing songs and chit chatting with fellow colleagues and on the phone. This is true for WWICS Mumbai and even their Chandigarh Headoffice is no good and people do not even know basic things about immigration. They are a totally useless company

Hi
I have stamped my H1b Visa in 2008 after that i went to embassy for B1 Visa stamping.there it asked me why you didn't went on H1b Visa i told them due to recession my employer didn't turned me up.so that's the reason for not travelling on H1b.At that time consultate has written CWOP on my H1B Visa and issued me B1 visa.
I donot know what exactly CWOP means.Later my employer is calling me on H1B Visa.
I have planned my trip for US but on delhi airport at immigration they refused to go to US as CWOP is written on my H1b Visa.they told me to check with embassy people and verify about ur visa

Please help me what should be done in this case as my petition is valid till 2011 but my visa is CWOP
it means my visa is cancelled and i have to reapply for H1B Cap or i have to give H1b Interview again.Please help me out

please dont get trapped in WWICS. they are big
fraud people. I hired them for getting immigration to canada. I paid 30000 to them as to start the processing. later on I came to know some info they provided me is not correct and I will not be able to get visa. So I asked them to cancel my visa application and file for getting 50000 refund of visa fee. I could have done this myself but they told they know the process and they will do the needfula and hand over the visa fee refund check as soon as they get it. I kept mailing to them enquiring about the status of check I always get a reply that they have not recieved it. One day I get a reply that they have recieved the check I contacted them they told I have to pay 45000 to them only then they will release the check. Its clear case of fraud as they never mentioned about this money and I inform them intially that I will be going for visa cancellation. they are real cheater. If you people realy want to file a case against them please visit CSIC ( http://www.csic-scci.ca/) they need complaints against them to cancel there membersip. I have contacted them at 1-866-308-2742 its a toll free number they can help people if you want. so please mail to them your complaint form. Also I have contacted news agancies they are ready to write article against them they need names. so please mail me @ [email protected] we need names to mention in the article.

Hi,

I wish to know the waiting period for 2004 applicants, if there are any. I am very frustrated with this long wait, hope to get some feedback on the usual time taken for immigration as the waiting period seems to be getting extended each time.

My mother got visa at the Hyderabad consulate. We were skeptical because my father passed away a couple of years ago.
She interviewed in Hindi. THe officer asked her only 3 questions

Q) Who are you visiting?
A) My daughter

Q) Where does she live and what does she do?
A) Answered

Q) Where is your husband?
A) Answered

The officer said "you have been issued a visa.. Have a nice trip to the US"

Immihelp has been very very helpful with the documents and interview preparation and the readers' experiences. I would really encourage people to take a few minutes out and post their experiences.

Hi to all the reader
I am a client of wwics and was harrassed a lot by them.I must say they are big liar,cheater and no trustworthy.I have withdrawn my case but they are denying to pay me back my fees.It was all their mistakes they didn't tell me the fact of my case untill I paid the entire fee but after they shown their original color and prooved that they are only the biggest cheater in the immigration services.
The branch manager of wwics Ahmedabad Mr. Deepak Zhamtani is a big liar,he has the skill of speaking lie and making fool the customer.
So it is my personal advice that please avoid their services,there are good consultants in India and abroad who are genuine and trustworthy

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.

WWICS Immigration Company is a BIG Cheat!

Never hire their services for any kind of immigration; or else you will end up in soup

So I am re-posting these messages from WWICSclients [email protected]. Please send in your thoughts on this… - Anand

Re: WWICS - corrupt consultant

You can get to know about WWICS from anyone used their ?service. Dont go by the words what they have written on their website, it is just to lure the innocent people.ground reality is something different. Until you give them money, they lick u from top to bottom, including manager and director, once you give them money, they kick ur ass ... make u completly handicap and slave

Although they claim themselves as ISO 9001:2000 company with very high service standards, but personally I felt that KPMG should snatch their ISO certifcate as they are not professional and their service is very unreliable... They claim thousands of successful cases, but when we ask any reference, they dont give any reference, on the name of confidentiality !!!

They have a very wierd set of procedure, first of all they dont file e-visa, only paper based visa, and also they ask two sets of form (one complety filled in client's hand writing with signature and one absolutely blank with just signature) .... God knows what they do with second form, upon asking explanation, they dont give u satisfactory answers and only show u dark picture if u dont give them two sets of picture .. they only take advantage of ur slaveness !!! Isn't it ridiculous !!!

Now someone might have an idea and tell me that, why dont u complain to MARA ... well, wwics had also thought about it very clearly .... Although they have their own family person as a registered MARA agent(which u can still see today on MARA website), but they never file ur case with his name, so even if u complain to MARA, MARA can't take actions. Because, in a first place MARA registered agent didnt file a case ....

My only advice to u is, dont go with them, even other agents are not good. All of them are bunch of crooks, only behind ur money and not focused on success of ur case and future. Do a detailed study, DIAC has a very clear and easy set instruction on their website. On the top of it, you have access to forums like this and others on internet. I repent on my decision of hiring wwics as my authorised agent.

Hi Friends,

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

CBI recommends action against Sandhu and WWICS on FOREST HILL CASE

See:
http://www.tribuneindia.com/2008/20080805/cth1.htm
http://www.screenindia.com/news/cbi-recommends-action-against-corrupt-officials/343244/
http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/cbi-recommends-action-against-corrupt-officials/343244/

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%.

Re: MARA to cancel the registration of WWICS

I am in the similar boat.. I am a WWICS client in Bangaloru. I applied for Canada in 2002 and just waiting for something to happen. There is a Manager named Jancy. She dont know what is immigration. She is just there to send courier to punjab (head office) and thats all. For any question she says, I will talk to HO. Then she say: she is sorry that HO is not replying. This goes on for years and the client is someone who fed u and go away. I agree with you that never ever go to WWICS..... save your money and life. they are just a bunch of thieves.
