Here’s what you should do
1 Get all the work supposed to be done and assurances in writing with timelines. If there isn’t any then risk is more. Pay for it later.
2 Make all the payments online. Strictly no cash and don’t forget to take the receipts.
3 Better check the veracity of Immigration Agency from police authorities and look for reviews and feedback. If possible, get to speak to the individual who has flown to the same country.
4 Be careful in signing the papers with Immigration agents. Seek clarity where you find doubt in the agreement.
5 Last , seek transparency from the immigration agent, agency, consultancy or firm at each step. If its not shown, its not going to happen .
What to do if you felt cheated or a victim of Immigration fraud or a scam?
1 Locate the agents or visit the office first and foremost. Don’t delay as the company owners may close the business and run away. So do it asap.
2 If the numbers are not reachable or business is found closed then rush to the police station and register an FIR under 406 and 420 IPC. Then the criminal trial would commence.
3 If both the above categories are not happening and immigration company is on talking terms, then the best would be to send a legal notice first and then recover your money through consumer court.
4 You can’t recover your money through a criminal case and for that you have to file a consumer case.
5 My last advice would be to engage a lawyer and don’t do it alone. The professional would cut down your time to recover your money.
