Here in this post, we will cite occasions when both criminal and consumer courts have entertained complaints and booked offenders for cheating , fraud and deliberate deficiency in services.

Have a dream of settling abroad? Please hold it unless it is legitimate. My first advice to people don’t believe in shortcuts.

Remember if its not legitimate then it’s gamble and someone has to loose. Chances are more of you to loose since these immigration consultancies , companies, firm, visa agents or settle abroad service provider play it regularly. Its a cakewalk for them to gallop lakhs in  months and say your application got rejected.

Now the remedies before you?

First would be a legal notice. Give them last chance to show up and do the needful. Legal notice is just a warning that I am moving to court now and I mean it.

Second would be consumer court since I am not fond of criminal as you have to shell out more to get your money back. Consumer courts are quick to issue notice and provide resolution .

Whereas in criminal complaint you too have to be present in police station while police tries to mediate with the accused. But not all are alike and exceptions are there. Do see whom you are talking to? If your gut is good in intuition , go ahead or consumer courts are the safest, cleanest, and efficacious way to get the justice.

But some people don’t understand it and they need a heavy doze. Criminal is just the right thing for them.
