“Liars and scammers ”

Written on: 13/09/2012

I first contacted them last year, has two of my visa applications were refused. This company promised to arrange all paper work and help to prepare documents and the application. They sounded so helpful at the start, then they wanted there £1200 upfront. Then the problems started, we was given FALSE and MISSLEADING information, and emails went unanswered, phone calls ignored.
The problem went on for many weeks, all the we was given false information, I even sent TWO letters of complaint to the general manager. These were ignored, I even traveled from Manchester to there office in Birmingham, yes I met the manager and was lied to but reassured all will be ok (yes more lies ).
I have just made an official complaint to the OISC, and received a later telling me that there licence and registration has been taken off them.
UK visa and immigration is NOT allowed to operate any more, and will be taken to court if they do.

I strongly advise all to keep there eyes open for this company and its staff, they will be prosecuted by the OISC.

The group UK Visa and Immigration Scam has now been blocked on facebook - seems they did a pretty good job at knocking a hole in the income of the likes of UK Visa and Immigration (no longer registered with OISC) (winding up order against them) now seems to have transferred business to UK Immigration Barristers.

I am going through pain of waiting for my application, they just said because of data protection you can not talk to Barrister who is handling your case. I have idea is it true or not??

I just got name of Barrister in my control panel and nothing else, its been 1 month and there is no proceedings in my application. Kind of document they asked and I replied is seems generalised and nothing related to my case.

Till now it seems to me a complete SCAM, if I am not convinced then definitely I will not dispatch my original documents with them.

Samje36's can you please find out if these guys has legal right to file my immigration case using their credentials etc.??

We had the same problem.

The only person i managed to eventually receive any reply from by email was (name removed) ..... Which quickly came following a threatening telephone conversation with UK Immigration Barristers (which I believe is the new company).
We managed to get all of our documents back but still waiting any refund that was offered to us.

Google search him & you will find quite a tangled web (also search any of the names you were given in communications while you dealt with this rip-off company.

teamlegal@ukvisaandimmigration.co.uk

Do any of these names ring any bells:

(Name removed) (dealt with us briefly)

Name removed) (our "case worke!" - LLB (HONS) AT MANCHESTER METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
Specialties - IMMIGRATION LAW
Global Immigration Consultants Ltd)

(Name removed)

I am currently investigating these people & locations & when I gain more information I will post on here or on Facebook page "UK Visa scammers uncovered"

Toni8307 - in response, UK Visa and Immigration have had a winding up petition served and appear to be trading under the name UK Immigration Barristers, For more info I suggest you check out a group call Action Fraud and report your case to the police as others have done.

Please read thro this blog and the following comments:
The police are now investigating, but in the meantime, I suggest you do as carrspaint did and call them up telling them that you will sue them.
Neither UK Visa and Immigration OR UK Immigration Barristers are registered with OISC the regulatory body.

hello, I have terrific experience of using Uk visa and immigration office, as well as making complaint to OISC and home office as they lost all our documents. No responsible people and to restore documents will cost more then £10 000! would be happy to discuss issues

we are still dealing to them as between this company and home office they lost our passports. first of all i requested document return from home office-to be able to prove the case status. then i will write complaint to home office.
i also complained to OISC,although they would not proceed claim as visa and immigration service are already suspended (even we sent documents in december when they acted under OISC legislation. we also written a letter to local MP, who contacted home office on our behalf.as last measures we are going to talk with police and media. good luck. if you lost money you can talk with your bank too, i know some people got their money this way
