GLOBAL VISAS IS BLACKMAILING THEIR UNHAPPY CUSTOMERS when they complain about the company.THE DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL VISAS LIAM CLIFFORD TRIED TO BLACKMAIL ME OFFERING TO REFUND MY MONEY ONLY IF I GIVE POSITIVE REVIEWS ABOUT HIS COMPANY ( EVEN THOUGH I AM A DISGUSTED CUSTOMER, SO HE ASKED ME TO LIE IN ORDER TO GET MY OWN MONEY BACK), IF I DENOUNCE MY NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON THE INTERNET AND IF I DENOUNCE OTHER PEOPLE IN ORDER TO HELP HIM OUT.

I BELIEVE THIS IS THE SERIOS SIGN OF A SCAM IF YOU CANNOT GET YOUR MONEY BACK FROM THEM UNLESS YOU LIE AND TESTIFY AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE IN ORDER TO HELP GLOBAL VISAS WHO RIPPED YOU OFF BY OFFERING CARP SERVICE AND CHARGING YOU A LOT OF MONEY FOR IT.

MORE THAN THAT HIS OFFICE LOST MY DOCUMENTS INCLUDING MY BANK DRAFTS AND TRIED TO BLAME IT ON ME OR ON THE ROYAL MAIL.
I GOT AN EMAIL FROM THEIR EMPLOYEES STATING MY DOCUMENTS WERE DISTROYED BY THEM FOR SECURITY REASONS AND ANOTHER EMAIL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL VISAS TRYING TO BLAME THE LOOSING OF MY DOCUMENTS ON ME OR ON ROYAL MAIL.

You people need to complain to OISC and newspapers. Take further to the minister of immigration and so on.
First Global Visas they are not solicitors, barristers or lawyers, they are just advisers but they want to charge you 1000 pounds per hour for a phone call only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.


The person selling you the contract will promise you anything you want in order to make you sign a contract and get your credit card details. If after talking to your case worker it proves that what the sales agent told you is wrong they still want to charge you full fees for talking to the case worker even though what she told you is only a correction of the info the sales agent gave you .Even if the give you the wrong information they still want to charge you as whatever they say to you they call expertise and then guess what they talk to you on the phone and the phone call is not recorded so anything they say to you or you say to them cannot be proved in court because it was during an unrecorded phone call. So basically is your word against theirs. I believe it is an obvious way of misleading customers to sign a contract that is is clearly disadvantageous for them.


Even though the sales agent tells you the fee for the whole application is a sum, the contract you sign says that the fee is only for an initial consultation and the rest of the work is done for free. The sales agent doesnt actually tell you what it says in the contract, he tells you a lie to make you sign a contract.




So in other words if after the initial consultation ( we do not know exactly what that consultation implies as the contract is very slippery) they decide not to file a single document for you or do any work you cant get your money back because the work they said they would do for you and they didnt is free of charge according to the contract. The contract is designed basically with unfair and illegal contract terms in order to rob people off their money.I do not believe this company intends to do any work for you and help you in any way, they just want a signed contract and your credit card details so that they can ignore your calls and emails after that.

So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

If you are from the UK you can follow the next steps, if you are in another country you may be able to sue them using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk if you have a friend in UK who can receive at his home address the court papers and can go to court in your behalf. So if you are in another country dug out all the skeletons in your closet, your relatives you forgot about in UK, friends and find someone in uk ;)

FIRST step is

complain to

http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them as they will send you a letter saying your complaint was received and is being investigated. plus if there are enough complaints maybe oisc can withdraw these peoples licence?

if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court

for people who write complaints and go to court it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas is registered as disqualified in 2008 under section 7 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 ( disqualification undertaking by an individual). and you can print this information from the internet from Companieshouse which is a website run by our wonderful government and use that in your court case

http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/a85a5d03662557af141f486e229b8186/dis_pers_apps...


http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/e7f1eab36255e4bb19dae841bd5a89eb/compdetails


Also his business partner Carl Thomas of Windsor and co -owner of Global Visas is also registered as disqualified



http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/b2e8dc2604526be7f09bf6ac083147d0/dis_pers_apps...

If you want to know what a disqualification means you can read

ALSO WHAT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR COURT CASE AGAINST THIS COMPANY AND THEIR OWNERS IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY INCVESTIGATED BY THE NEWSPAPERS FOR RIPPING OFF THEIR CUSTOMERS AND POSTING FALSE ACCREDITATIONS


SO PRINT THE FOLLOWING THINGS AND TAKE THEM TO COURT WITH YOU

http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2002/07/one-false-mover.html


also Liam Clifford was stupid enough to admit himself in a press release that he was in JAIL at the Old Bailey


http://rinf.com/alt-news/surveillance-big-brother/biometrics-slammed-by-uk%E2%80...


I quote:




“Once he was even arrested and thrown in the cells of the Old Bailey due to his previous government job of keeping people outside the UK. During his time in the Old Bailey cells he realised his country needs help and people who work for HM Government. UK Plc should never have to spend time in the cells for a job well done”



My personal interpretation of his press release is that he went to sleep one night in jail and he woke up thinking he was the next Mahatma Ghandi. If this is the case then Liam Clifford is just deluding himself and he should stop this delusion for the sake of his customers who deserve a much better service from a guy who is only 40 years old but he has already been in jail, disqualified, investigated by the newspapers for posting false accreditations and ripping off his clients.

complain to your local MP ( member of parliament appointed by your constituency to fight for your rights in the parliament I think)
to find your local MP use the following link


http://www.parliament.uk/directories/directories.cfm

WITH EVERY COMPLAINT YOU WILL MAKE YOU WILL STICK METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING A CARROT UP MR CLIFFORDS ARSE. SO LETS STICK AS MANY CARROTS AS POSSIBLE SO HIS ARSE IS TOO SORE FOR HIM TO SIT DOWN.


BY THE TIME YOU FINISHED COMPLAINING A RIVER OF INK HAS FLOWN AND MR CLIFFORD HAS CURSED THE DAY YOU CALLED HIS OFFICE AND THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY:))

complain to God:))

I believe that by taking money from people wrongfully Mr Liam Clifford is committing a sin and the Bishop of the Catholic Church should receive from us a letter showing how Mr Clifford has sinned so he can lobby for us to Mr Clifford asking him to repent, pay the money back to people, and donate the money to the Church so that he doesnt burn in Hell in the afterlife.
Lets ask for help from the Catholic Church, there must be a Catholic Church near where Mr Clifford lives that can ask him to repent.

The work the Church does is illustrated here

I mean folks Liam Clifford is selling his soul to Lucifer for the sake of a house in Croydon, London and a second hand car he is driving. I believe this is very cheap for his soul and Clifford should ask from Lucifer for a 13 million pounds mansion in Oxfordshire, a Ferrari Diablo and a helicopter to supervise his international fraud operation.


after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the UK, I dont know how you do this in India)


I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit


after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
system".

From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.


DO NOT BE AFRAID YOU CANNOT GO TO COURT AS YOU DONT HAVE ANY RIGHTS, THERE ARE PLENTY OF LAWS IN UK TO PROTECT THE CONSUMERS, YOU CAN ALSO GET FREE ADVICE ABOUT YOUR CASE GOING TO A CHARITY CALLED CITIZENS ADVICE BUREAU WHICH HAS OFFICES IN ANY TOWN IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

after all this I wish you good luck in recovering your money from Global Visas, if they dont pay after you win in court just send the bailiffs to their office

remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you



my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain because this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair fees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it), them wanting your credit card details before you submit any documents assessing your eligibility or chances of getting a visa, providing you with misleading information, there are endless reason but there are a few applying on your case so you have to stick to your case, just tell the truth and do your homework

the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain



remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you, I had to do hours of researching myself into this matter, I was quite inexperienced and uninformed when I contacted Global Visas.

However, a complaint can be automatically marked as resolved if a complainant isn't responding or updating a complaint for 30 days after the company has tried to reach the complainant.

    Complaint marked as Resolved 
    First Global Visas they are not solicitors, barristers or lawyers, they are just advisers but they want to charge you 1000 pounds per hour for a phone call only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.


    The person selling you the contract will promise you anything you want in order to make you sign a contract and get your credit card details. If after talking to your case worker it proves that what the sales agent told you is wrong they still want to charge you full fees for talking to the case worker even though what she told you is only a correction of the info the sales agent gave you .Even if the give you the wrong information they still want to charge you as whatever they say to you they call expertise and then guess what they talk to you on the phone and the phone call is not recorded so anything they say to you or you say to them cannot be proved in court because it was during an unrecorded phone call. So basically is your word against theirs. I believe it is an obvious way of misleading customers to sign a contract that is is clearly disadvantageous for them.


    Even though the sales agent tells you the fee for the whole application is a sum, the contract you sign says that the fee is only for an initial consultation and the rest of the work is done for free. The sales agent doesnt actually tell you what it says in the contract, he tells you a lie to make you sign a contract.




    So in other words if after the initial consultation ( we do not know exactly what that consultation implies as the contract is very slippery) they decide not to file a single document for you or do any work you cant get your money back because the work they said they would do for you and they didnt is free of charge according to the contract. The contract is designed basically with unfair and illegal contract terms in order to rob people off their money.I do not believe this company intends to do any work for you and help you in any way, they just want a signed contract and your credit card details so that they can ignore your calls and emails after that.

    So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

    If you are from the UK you can follow the next steps, if you are in another country you may be able to sue them using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk if you have a friend in UK who can receive at his home address the court papers and can go to court in your behalf. So if you are in another country dug out all the skeletons in your closet, your relatives you forgot about in UK, friends and find someone in uk ;)

    FIRST step is

    complain to

    http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

    they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
    will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them as they will send you a letter saying your complaint was received and is being investigated. plus if there are enough complaints maybe oisc can withdraw these peoples licence?



    then go to trading Standards and complain

    if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court

    for people who write complaints and go to court it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas is registered as disqualified in 2008 under section 7 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 ( disqualification undertaking by an individual). and you can print this information from the internet from Companieshouse which is a website run by our wonderful government and use that in your court case

    http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/a85a5d03662557af141f486e229b8186/dis_pers_apps...


    http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/e7f1eab36255e4bb19dae841bd5a89eb/compdetails


    Also his business partner Carl Thomas of Windsor and co -owner of Global Visas is also registered as disqualified



    http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/b2e8dc2604526be7f09bf6ac083147d0/dis_pers_apps...

    This website offers free information for the public under The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Data protection Act 1998 give people the right to see or receive information.
    The Freedom of Information Act gives the public the right to see official information held by public authorities and includes information held by Companies House.
    The Data Protection Act allows a member of the public to see the personal information that is held about them by organisations of all types, including Companies House.
    If you want to know what a disqualification means you can read

    http://www.accaglobal.com/students/student_accountant/archive/2005/53/2342490


    ALSO WHAT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR COURT CASE AGAINST THIS COMPANY AND THEIR OWNERS IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY INCVESTIGATED BY THE NEWSPAPERS FOR RIPPING OFF THEIR CUSTOMERS AND POSTING FALSE ACCREDITATIONS


    SO PRINT THE FOLLOWING THINGS AND TAKE THEM TO COURT WITH YOU




    http://www.people.co.uk/news/news/tm_method=full%26objectID=20987018%26siteID=93...


    http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2002/07/one-false-mover.html


    also Liam Clifford was stupid enough to admit himself in a press release that he was in JAIL at the Old Bailey


    http://rinf.com/alt-news/surveillance-big-brother/biometrics-slammed-by-uk%E2%80...


    I quote:




    “Once he was even arrested and thrown in the cells of the Old Bailey due to his previous government job of keeping people outside the UK. During his time in the Old Bailey cells he realised his country needs help and people who work for HM Government. UK Plc should never have to spend time in the cells for a job well done”



    My personal interpretation of his press release is that he went to sleep one night in jail and he woke up thinking he was the next Mahatma Ghandi. If this is the case then Liam Clifford is just deluding himself and he should stop this delusion for the sake of his customers who deserve a much better service from a guy who is only 40 years old but he has already been in jail, disqualified, investigated by the newspapers for posting false accreditations and ripping off his clients.

    WITH EVERY COMPLAINT YOU WILL MAKE YOU WILL STICK METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING A CARROT UP MR CLIFFORDS ARSE. SO LETS STICK AS MANY CARROTS AS POSSIBLE SO HIS ARSE IS TOO SORE FOR HIM TO SIT DOWN.


    BY THE TIME YOU FINISHED COMPLAINING A RIVER OF INK HAS FLOWN AND MR CLIFFORD HAS CURSED THE DAY YOU CALLED HIS OFFICE AND THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY:))

    complain to God:))

    I believe that by taking money from people wrongfully Mr Liam Clifford is committing a sin and the Bishop of the Catholic Church should receive from us a letter showing how Mr Clifford has sinned so he can lobby for us to Mr Clifford asking him to repent, pay the money back to people, and donate the money to the Church so that he doesnt burn in Hell in the afterlife.
    Lets ask for help from the Catholic Church, there must be a Catholic Church near where Mr Clifford lives that can ask him to repent.

    The work the Church does is illustrated here

    I mean folks Liam Clifford is selling his soul to Lucifer for the sake of a house in Croydon, London and a second hand car he is driving. I believe this is very cheap for his soul and Clifford should ask from Lucifer for a 13 million pounds mansion in Oxfordshire, a Ferrari Diablo and a helicopter to supervise his international fraud operation.


    after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the UK, I dont know how you do this in India)


    I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit


    after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


    I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

    my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

    there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

    when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

    the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

    So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
    The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

    But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

    I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

    On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

    I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
    system".

    From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

    But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

    You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

    Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
    urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

    When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
    fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

    Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

    If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

    I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
    Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

    As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

    I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

    I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.

    remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you



    my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain because this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

    there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

    when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair fees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it), them wanting your credit card details before you submit any documents assessing your eligibility or chances of getting a visa, providing you with misleading information, there are endless reason but there are a few applying on your case so you have to stick to your case, just tell the truth and do your homework

    the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain



    remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you, I had to do hours of researching myself into this matter, I was quite inexperienced and uninformed when I contacted Global Visas.

      my case for Canadian immigration was given to global visas in Jan 2009 (10 months ago). I have spent just enormous amount of money calling global visas Canadian and UK office for endless number of times but to my surprise I have been advised to contact Canada and Uk office too and fro , I am highly dissatisfied and dissappointed with the services of Global Visas. I feel cheated from day one when i was given a price that i had to pay for my immigration by the sales consultant(Simon in the london office ) which later turned out to be 'NOT THE RIGHT PRICE' by my case worker , having dealt with more than 10 case workers in the past 10 months havnt been at all a pleasent experience , i feel bullied and mentally sick after all this. Spoke to canadian office today and have been advised that the case was sent back to the UK , I was assureed that under the fast track programme I will be Immigrated between 6-12 months (another fake promise).



      I dont want to go ahead with Global visas any more as i have had enough of Global visas now. Please refund my fees that have been paid to you at your earliest. I would not like to recommend Global visas to ANYONE at work or family and friends.

      Highly dissapointed with the POOR service.
      have been duped with almost 2000 pounds

      IT SEEMS/THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT GLOBAL VISAS DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH ACCREDITATIONS OR LICENCES TO OPERATE IN CANADA WITH AN OFFICE

      PLEASE READ THE INFO BELOW ABOUT WHO HAS THE RIGHT TO ADVISE YOU ABOUT IMMIGRATION TO CANADA

      Citizenship and immigration canada

      Immigration representatives: Who can represent you
      Immigration representatives are people who offer immigration advice or assistance to visa applicants. Some applicants may choose to consult a representative to act on their behalf with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), the Immigration and Refugee Board or the Canada Border Services Agency.
      There are two types of immigration representatives: paid and unpaid.
      Paid immigration representatives
      The only representatives who may charge a fee to represent or advise you on immigration and refugee matters with the Government of Canada are:
       lawyers who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society
       Immigration consultants who are members in good standing of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants, and
       notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec
      The Government of Canada will not deal with non-authorized representatives who charge a fee for their service.
      Unpaid immigration representatives
      A person or organization who does not charge a fee for their service may also represent you.
      For example:
       a family member or friend
       a member of a non-governmental or religious organization
      To protect your privacy, CIC will not share any of your personal information with your representative unless you provide your written consent using the Use of a Representative (IMM 5476) form.
      Other people who offer immigration advice or assistance
      People who provide immigration-related advice or assistance for a fee before the application is filed are not obliged to be authorized representatives. However, be aware that non-authorized representatives or advisors are not regulated. This means that they may not have adequate knowledge or training. It also means that you cannot seek help from the professional bodies (that is, the law societies, CSIC, etc.) if that person provides you with the wrong advice or behaves in an unprofessional way.


      Immigration representatives: How to file a complaint
      Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) does not get involved in disputes between applicants and their representatives. If you have a complaint about your representative, there are ways you can get help.
      First, you must find out if your representative is an “authorized representative.” Authorized representatives are members in good standing of a Canadian law society, the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
      For more information about regulatory bodies, see Contacts under Related Links at the bottom of this page.
      If you have a complaint about:
      an authorized representative
       File a complaint with the regulatory body to which the representative belongs (e.g., the appropriate Canadian provincial or territorial law society, CSIC, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec).
      an employee of an authorized representative
       Discuss your complaint with the licensed immigration representative. If you feel your concern was not dealt with properly, you may file a complaint with the representative’s regulatory body.
      a non-authorized representative
       If your representative is not in Canada, send your complaint to the appropriate authorities in the country where the representative lives or works.
       If your representative is in Canada, file a complaint through the Canadian Consumer Information Gateway or the Canadian Council of Better Business Bureaus.
      What if my immigration representative breaks the law while representing me?
      If you know your immigration representative broke the law while representing you, they could be charged under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, the Criminal Code of Canada or the laws of your country of residence.
      If the law they broke was immigration-related (for example, if your representative submitted fraudulent documents with your application), immediately contact the CIC office processing your application or the Canada Border Services Agency.
      If your representative has defrauded you personally (for example, if they charged you a fee, but did not fulfil what was promised or refuse to return your passport without another fee), contact your local law enforcement agency.

      Hi,

      I have sucessfully issued a small claims proceeding against Global Visa. My advise is to stick with it

      They are no longer memners of CSIC - they withdrew from that. I tried to go through CSIC initially to no avail

      I'm based in the uk and issued a small claims proceeding via money claims online stating my grievence. Global Visas do not defend the case and sent me a cheque. The cheque has now cleared and I have a full refund
      My experience with Global visas has been entirely and completely unsatisfactory. I am appauled at their attitude towards their clients. I started my case in Novemeber 2009 and was assured by most helpful Simon Koe at the London Office that my case would be undertaken to obtain a working visa for Canada. I travelled to Canada to meet my sponsoring employers which was a fantastic experience and I was confident that the whole transition would take place smoothly and efficiently as I had the services of Global Visas on board. The reason I chose to hire Global Visas was to make sure that because I was dealing with new employers in Canada I did'nt want anything to go wrong or incur unnexpected delays. I also wanted my employers to take me seriously and see that I was professional.
      All of my documents were submitted to the London office and my case worker 'Charlene Amarte' told me that the application had been made to 'Service Canada' for the first part of the process which was to obtain a positive LMO from the Canadian government. As time passed I became concerned that it was taking a little more time than expected and when my Canadian employer offered to contact 'Service Canada' to track my application and see if there was any way of speeding up the process. It was a nice gesture and helpful of them so I agreed that it would not do any harm.
      My employer contacted me the following day to say that on speaking with an immigration reprasentative from 'Service Canada' they had absolutely no record of my application or registration of my case.
      This came as a huge shock and I felt physically sick at the thoughts of wasting so much time and putting so much faith in the abilities of Global Visas. I contacted Global Visas immidietely and was happy to recieve a promt response from them for the first time since the beginning of my case. I brought the situation to their attention and my case worker told me she was very surprised to hear this and she would be making relevant enquiries. On further response from her she told me that it was worst case scenario and the bottom line was that my paperwork had been sent to the Global Visas Canadian Office and the reprasentative who was responsible for submitting this had simply 'FORGOTTEN' to do this.
      She assured me that this was a matter that was being taken most seriously and discussions were in place with management at the London office. They also acknowledged the fact that not only had this incident occured it was now a matter of 2 months passing and they would be making a form of compensation for this mishap. At this stage I had suffered serious delays and loss of earning as I could not fulfil working commitments as soon as ecpected in Canada, and not only this I was now unemployed in Ireland as I had terminated my employment as I was expecting to be well on my way to Canada by this stage.
      Global Visas said that they had pleaded my case with Service Canada and once the submittal had been made it would be processed in 5 working days. Over 3 weeks later I now have still not recieved any feedback. I have sent countless emails to Global visas, supporting documents and drafts. I have had one relpy to my emails in this time frame. They have made no relevance to any form of compensation even though I have brought up this topic time after time. I have called the office no one is answering my calls and I am now in total digust of this situation. They have caused me such enormous upset and stress not to mention a small fortune. I am now going to contact the 'City of London Police', 'The Law society Of Canada' and any other relevant immigration bodies. I do not know how they have so many accreditations on their website but I will do everything I can to fight to the bottom of my case and bring this matter to the attention of as many people as I can.
      Hello Tarun and others,

      You all are very right. No matter what Liam says to defend himself (Like every owner would do)...here's the real scoop.

      I was pondering on hiring Global Visas for my brother's case. After hearing the real story from my friend who works for Global Visas in their Canada office, I changed my mind. She told me the first day she walked into the office, 179 "PENDING" files were thrown at her face by the Manager. Most of these cases were over a year old...and one poor caseworker was going crazy trying to put together submissions, and at the same time, handling angry client calls. You filed must've passed her desk too. She mentioned that she tried to educate the Global Visas management on ways to do things right. They chose to turn a deaf ear on her. It seems they have state-of-the-art technology at the back office, with modern CRM etc. But what Liam fails to understand, is that he should be investing in quality professionals and have some respect for Canadian Laws.

      There is utter neglect and chaos behind the scene (at least in this Canadian office). Everyone is scared of Liam Clifford. That man, it seems, only understands $$$$s. The Canadian Branch Manager is an un-qualified guy sitting at the helm, who knows nothing about Imigration. Bottomline: You will not get any creative counselling from them. They are mail-handlers at best. All they do is to put together the documents as per the checklist, and mail it away to the High Commission (UNREGISTERED...Believe me !!) or thats what my friend says.

      Right now Global Visas is advertising that they have a Lawyer in their panel, who is a member of the Law Society o[censored]pper Canada. Try contacting this Lawyer...I bet you won't be successful even after 100 calls. Atleast my friend is yet to see this person.

      Stay away at all costs !!!
      Well why would anyone be scared [censored]less by Liam Clifford?

      he is a convicted man who has been in jail and he can go back there again, all his employees should just call the Canadian Inland revenue and the Canadian Commision of Immigration and report him plus the police for submitting applications for people without being approved to do so.

      I simply cant undersatnd why his employees ares scared [censored]less of hi, .they can put him back in jail easily if they only try!!!

      CALL INLAND REVENUE, CANADIAN COMMISION OF IMMIGRATION AND POLICE!! DO NOT DELAY!!
      I agree with all of the above, DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, their staff are unqualified and extremely unprofessional. Save yourself a lot of emotional stress, time wasting and degrading yourself to speak with illiterate staff and management.

      You are better of[censored]sing an immigration lawyer, who will charge a small percentage more but will do a much better job, actually get you the visas. Also, they are accountable to a regulatory body, and have professional inedmnity insurance in case they are found to be negligent.

      GV dont have any lawyers in house, they dont respond to emails or phonecalls...honestly keep away from them.
      Global Visas Scammed Me £3000 for a Entrepreneur visa. They never did any work and would answer my calls. Google Lets them advertise with them. IM NEVER USING GOOGLE AGAIN!

      Lets all let Google know and stop Global Visas comitting FRAUD.

        Please write to OFT, seek advice from Consumer Direct, LATSS., take global visas to court.

        Do not let Global Visas to get on happily with their frogery.

        Please write to OFT.

        They will take action only if all the affected consumers write to them about global visas scam and unfair trading policy.

        First Global Visas they are not solicitors, barristers or lawyers, they are just advisers but they want to charge you 1000 pounds per hour for a phone call only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.


        The person selling you the contract will promise you anything you want in order to make you sign a contract and get your credit card details. If after talking to your case worker it proves that what the sales agent told you is wrong they still want to charge you full fees for talking to the case worker even though what she told you is only a correction of the info the sales agent gave you .Even if the give you the wrong information they still want to charge you as whatever they say to you they call expertise and then guess what they talk to you on the phone and the phone call is not recorded so anything they say to you or you say to them cannot be proved in court because it was during an unrecorded phone call. So basically is your word against theirs. I believe it is an obvious way of misleading customers to sign a contract that is is clearly disadvantageous for them.


        Even though the sales agent tells you the fee for the whole application is a sum, the contract you sign says that the fee is only for an initial consultation and the rest of the work is done for free. The sales agent doesnt actually tell you what it says in the contract, he tells you a lie to make you sign a contract.




        So in other words if after the initial consultation ( we do not know exactly what that consultation implies as the contract is very slippery) they decide not to file a single document for you or do any work you cant get your money back because the work they said they would do for you and they didnt is free of charge according to the contract. The contract is designed basically with unfair and illegal contract terms in order to rob people off their money.I do not believe this company intends to do any work for you and help you in any way, they just want a signed contract and your credit card details so that they can ignore your calls and emails after that.

        So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

        If you are from the UK you can follow the next steps, if you are in another country you may be able to sue them using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk if you have a friend in UK who can receive at his home address the court papers and can go to court in your behalf. So if you are in another country dug out all the skeletons in your closet, your relatives you forgot about in UK, friends and find someone in uk ;)

        FIRST step is

        complain to

        http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

        they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
        will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them as they will send you a letter saying your complaint was received and is being investigated. plus if there are enough complaints maybe oisc can withdraw these peoples licence?

        if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court

        for people who write complaints and go to court it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas is registered as disqualified in 2008 under section 7 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 ( disqualification undertaking by an individual). and you can print this information from the internet from Companieshouse which is a website run by our wonderful government and use that in your court case

        http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/e7f1eab36255e4bb19dae841bd5a89eb/compdetails


        Also his business partner Carl Thomas of Windsor and co -owner of Global Visas is also registered as disqualified



        http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/b2e8dc2604526be7f09bf6ac083147d0/dis_pers_apps...

        This website offers free information for the public under The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Data protection Act 1998 give people the right to see or receive information.
        The Freedom of Information Act gives the public the right to see official information held by public authorities and includes information held by Companies House.
        The Data Protection Act allows a member of the public to see the personal information that is held about them by organisations of all types, including Companies House.
        If you want to know what a disqualification means you can read

        ALSO WHAT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR COURT CASE AGAINST THIS COMPANY AND THEIR OWNERS IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY INCVESTIGATED BY THE NEWSPAPERS FOR RIPPING OFF THEIR CUSTOMERS AND POSTING FALSE ACCREDITATIONS


        SO PRINT THE FOLLOWING THINGS AND TAKE THEM TO COURT WITH YOU

        http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2002/07/one-false-mover.html


        also Liam Clifford was stupid enough to admit himself in a press release that he was in JAIL at the Old Bailey


        http://rinf.com/alt-news/surveillance-big-brother/biometrics-slammed-by-uk%E2%80...


        I quote:




        “Once he was even arrested and thrown in the cells of the Old Bailey due to his previous government job of keeping people outside the UK. During his time in the Old Bailey cells he realised his country needs help and people who work for HM Government. UK Plc should never have to spend time in the cells for a job well done”



        My personal interpretation of his press release is that he went to sleep one night in jail and he woke up thinking he was the next Mahatma Ghandi. If this is the case then Liam Clifford is just deluding himself and he should stop this delusion for the sake of his customers who deserve a much better service from a guy who is only 40 years old but he has already been in jail, disqualified, investigated by the newspapers for posting false accreditations and ripping off his clients.

        BY THE TIME YOU FINISHED COMPLAINING A RIVER OF INK HAS FLOWN AND MR CLIFFORD HAS CURSED THE DAY YOU CALLED HIS OFFICE AND THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY:))

        complain to God:))

        I believe that by taking money from people wrongfully Mr Liam Clifford is committing a sin and the Bishop of the Catholic Church should receive from us a letter showing how Mr Clifford has sinned so he can lobby for us to Mr Clifford asking him to repent, pay the money back to people, and donate the money to the Church so that he doesnt burn in Hell in the afterlife.
        Lets ask for help from the Catholic Church, there must be a Catholic Church near where Mr Clifford lives that can ask him to repent.

        The work the Church does is illustrated here

        I mean folks Liam Clifford is selling his soul to Lucifer for the sake of a house in Croydon, London and a second hand car he is driving. I believe this is very cheap for his soul and Clifford should ask from Lucifer for a 13 million pounds mansion in Oxfordshire, a Ferrari Diablo and a helicopter to supervise his international fraud operation.


        after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the UK, I dont know how you do this in India)


        I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit


        after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


        I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

        my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

        there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

        when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

        the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

        So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
        The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

        But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

        I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

        On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

        I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
        system".

        From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

        But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

        You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

        Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
        urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

        When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
        fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

        Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

        If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

        I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
        Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

        As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

        I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

        I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.

        my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain because this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

        there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

        when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair fees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it), them wanting your credit card details before you submit any documents assessing your eligibility or chances of getting a visa, providing you with misleading information, there are endless reason but there are a few applying on your case so you have to stick to your case, just tell the truth and do your homework

        remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you, I had to do hours of researching myself into this matter, I was quite inexperienced and uninformed when I contacted Global Visas.

          Dear All,

          Enterprise Act 2002 (EA02)
          Consumer Protection from Unfair Tradding Regulaions 2008
          Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000

          Office of Fair Tradding (OFT) has no powers to assist individual consumers.But under part 8 of EAO2, the OFT, along with other enforcers such as LATSS and other specific regulators, has power to seek undertakings and court orders to deal with infringements of a range of consumer protection legislation.

          The OFT can take action in cases where it affects consumers generally or a group of consumers.

          The OFT advices to contact Consumer direct (CD) (www.consumerdirect.gov.uk, telephone [protected]). CD will give advices and help individual consumers. It can refer consumers to Local Authority Trading Standards Services (LATSS).

          OISC is appropriate body to deal complaint with Global Visas.
          If you feel OISC is incompetent and does not do any justice to you.

          Write to OFT again. Even though OFT will not deal with individual consumer they will retain your complaint on their database and incorporate your concerns for future investigation when they receive complaints from group of consumers against global visas.

          Since, OFT (according to part 8 of Enterprise Act 2002 (EA02)) will take action that affects group of consumer, therefore inorder for OFT to take a direct action on global visas, then a general complaint letter mentioning all the breaches that global visas has made and should be sent to OFT signed by all the affected consumers.

            The complaint is marked as resolved when a company has responded to the complainant, addressed his or her dissatisfaction, and came to an agreement where both parties agreed that the complaint is indeed resolved. However, a complaint can be automatically marked as resolved if a complainant isn't responding or updating a complaint for 30 days after the company has tried to reach the complainant.

            To people who dont know where to complain and they I have an idea: why dont you contact the daily mail news paper in the United Kingdom, they can run a story about the scam that Global Visas are running. So why dont you write your complaint to newspaper reporters, they would love a good story to investigate. For all the people who dont know where to send their complaint I have put together the email addresses of Daily Mail reporters, just send your complaints to the following email addresses( you can mention in your complaints that Global Visas has unfair terms in the contracts they offer to their clients, terms trapping their customers into paying full fees but Global Visas having no obligations at all in case of bad advice given – they call it expertise- or in case they would delay your visa or not return calls and emails):

            so keep on complaining to:

            Due to our clients’ on going support we are the largest and fastest growing Visa company in the world.

            We are registered with more quality assurance governing bodies world wide than any other Immigration company.

            We win cases other can not.

            We are great listeners and really do care about you very much. Take the time to come and see us and we can sit down and listen to everything that is on your mind. We have several quality checks in place and also some of the highest skilled and best qualified Immigration law experts in the world. With over 100 staff world wide we operate a strict refund policy as mentioned in our Client Care Letter.

            We obviously cannot respond to any specific issues on this site but we do want to hear from you.

            On the issue of payment. We make our fees clear to all clients before we do any work and we explain everything in our client care letter. Offer payment plans for people who can not pay our full fees in one payment and do our best to accommodate our clients but, we can not work for free. Taking our knowledge and expertise and expecting not to pay for our service is unacceptable and we are certain 99.9% of clients would agree. If we allowed a person to take our services without payment all our other clients would suffer as their fees would need to increase to pay for the tiny percentage of people who believe it is right to take without payment.

            Thank you in advance for getting in touch if you have anything to say to us. We look forward to receiving your email at [protected]@globalvisas.com We have put up this special email address to make sure if you have anything to say you can come straight through to us.

            On a seperate note a person has been spread slanderous comments about our company on the internet. We would like to say thank you to everyone who has help in tracking this person down and the authorities are now assisting our legal team to ensure they answer for their actions in a court of law. We appreciate on the internet is full o[censored]ntruethful comments about all sorts of things but your efforts have been really helpful as it is hurtful to read things about us which are simply not true on this site.

            All we ever ask is that if you like what we do please tell others, but if you don’t tell us.
            We will do everything we can to meet your expectations.

            ADVERTISEMENT
            Hello,

            You all are very right. No matter what Liam says to defend himself (Like every owner would do)...here's the real scoop.

            I was pondering on hiring Global Visas for my brother's case. After hearing the real story from my friend who works for Global Visas in their Canada office, I changed my mind. She told me the first day she walked into the office, 179 "PENDING" files were thrown at her face by the Manager. Most of these cases were over a year old...and one poor caseworker was going crazy trying to put together submissions, and at the same time, handling angry client calls. You filed must've passed her desk too. She mentioned that she tried to educate the Global Visas management on ways to do things right. They chose to turn a deaf ear on her. It seems they have state-of-the-art technology at the back office, with modern CRM etc. But what Liam fails to understand, is that he should be investing in quality professionals and have some respect for Canadian Laws.

            There is utter neglect and chaos behind the scene (at least in this Canadian office). Everyone is scared of Liam Clifford. That man, it seems, only understands $$$$s. The Canadian Branch Manager is an un-qualified guy sitting at the helm, who knows nothing about Imigration. Bottomline: You will not get any creative counselling from them. They are mail-handlers at best. All they do is to put together the documents as per the checklist, and mail it away to the High Commission (UNREGISTERED...Believe me !!) or thats what my friend says.

            Right now Global Visas is advertising that they have a Lawyer in their panel, who is a member of the Law Society o[censored]pper Canada. Try contacting this Lawyer...I bet you won't be successful even after 100 calls. Atleast my friend is yet to see this person.

            Stay away at all costs !!!
            Wel why would anyone be scared [censored]less by Liam Clifford?

            he is a convicted man who has been in jail and he can go back there again, all his employees should just call the Canadian Inland revenue and the Canadian Commision of Immigration and report him plus the police for submitting applications for people without being approved to do so.

            I simply cant undersatnd why his employees ares scared [censored]less of hi, .they can put him back in jail easily if they only try!!!

            CALL INLAND REVENUE, CANADIAN COMMISION OF IMMIGRATION AND POLICE!! DO NOT DELAY!!
            First Global Visas they are not solicitors, barristers or lawyers, they are just advisers but they want to charge you 1000 pounds per hour for a phone call only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.


            The person selling you the contract will promise you anything you want in order to make you sign a contract and get your credit card details. If after talking to your case worker it proves that what the sales agent told you is wrong they still want to charge you full fees for talking to the case worker even though what she told you is only a correction of the info the sales agent gave you .Even if the give you the wrong information they still want to charge you as whatever they say to you they call expertise and then guess what they talk to you on the phone and the phone call is not recorded so anything they say to you or you say to them cannot be proved in court because it was during an unrecorded phone call. So basically is your word against theirs. I believe it is an obvious way of misleading customers to sign a contract that is is clearly disadvantageous for them.


            Even though the sales agent tells you the fee for the whole application is a sum, the contract you sign says that the fee is only for an initial consultation and the rest of the work is done for free. The sales agent doesnt actually tell you what it says in the contract, he tells you a lie to make you sign a contract.




            So in other words if after the initial consultation ( we do not know exactly what that consultation implies as the contract is very slippery) they decide not to file a single document for you or do any work you cant get your money back because the work they said they would do for you and they didnt is free of charge according to the contract. The contract is designed basically with unfair and illegal contract terms in order to rob people off their money.I do not believe this company intends to do any work for you and help you in any way, they just want a signed contract and your credit card details so that they can ignore your calls and emails after that.

            So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

            If you are from the UK you can follow the next steps, if you are in another country you may be able to sue them using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk if you have a friend in UK who can receive at his home address the court papers and can go to court in your behalf. So if you are in another country dug out all the skeletons in your closet, your relatives you forgot about in UK, friends and find someone in uk ;)

            FIRST step is

            complain to

            http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

            they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
            will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them as they will send you a letter saying your complaint was received and is being investigated. plus if there are enough complaints maybe oisc can withdraw these peoples licence?



            then go to trading Standards and complain

            if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court

            for people who write complaints and go to court it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas is registered as disqualified in 2008 under section 7 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 ( disqualification undertaking by an individual). and you can print this information from the internet from Companieshouse which is a website run by our wonderful government and use that in your court case

            Also his business partner Carl Thomas of Windsor and co -owner of Global Visas is also registered as disqualified

            http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2002/07/one-false-mover.html


            also Liam Clifford was stupid enough to admit himself in a press release that he was in JAIL at the Old Bailey


            http://rinf.com/alt-news/surveillance-big-brother/biometrics-slammed-by-uk%E2%80...


            I quote:




            “Once he was even arrested and thrown in the cells of the Old Bailey due to his previous government job of keeping people outside the UK. During his time in the Old Bailey cells he realised his country needs help and people who work for HM Government. UK Plc should never have to spend time in the cells for a job well done”



            My personal interpretation of his press release is that he went to sleep one night in jail and he woke up thinking he was the next Mahatma Ghandi. If this is the case then Liam Clifford is just deluding himself and he should stop this delusion for the sake of his customers who deserve a much better service from a guy who is only 40 years old but he has already been in jail, disqualified, investigated by the newspapers for posting false accreditations and ripping off his clients.

            complain to God:))

            I believe that by taking money from people wrongfully Mr Liam Clifford is committing a sin and the Bishop of the Catholic Church should receive from us a letter showing how Mr Clifford has sinned so he can lobby for us to Mr Clifford asking him to repent, pay the money back to people, and donate the money to the Church so that he doesnt burn in Hell in the afterlife.
            Lets ask for help from the Catholic Church, there must be a Catholic Church near where Mr Clifford lives that can ask him to repent.

            The work the Church does is illustrated here

            I mean folks Liam Clifford is selling his soul to Lucifer for the sake of a house in Croydon, London and a second hand car he is driving. I believe this is very cheap for his soul and Clifford should ask from Lucifer for a 13 million pounds mansion in Oxfordshire, a Ferrari Diablo and a helicopter to supervise his international fraud operation.


            after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the UK, I dont know how you do this in India)


            I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit


            after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


            I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

            my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

            there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

            when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

            the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

            So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
            The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

            But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

            I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

            On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

            I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
            system".

            From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

            But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

            You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

            Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
            urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

            When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
            fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

            Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

            If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

            I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
            Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

            As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

            I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

            I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.

            remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you



            my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain because this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

            there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

            when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair fees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it), them wanting your credit card details before you submit any documents assessing your eligibility or chances of getting a visa, providing you with misleading information, there are endless reason but there are a few applying on your case so you have to stick to your case, just tell the truth and do your homework

            the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain



            remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you, I had to do hours of researching myself into this matter, I was quite inexperienced and uninformed when I contacted Global Visas.

              First of all I am one of the people conned by Global Visas.

              I am going to court against global visas as i canceled my contract 4 days after i signed it thinking it was a scam, i canceled my credit card and now they are taking me to court because i paid the deposit and idnt pay the rest of the money , although i havent submitted any documents and they havent done any work.I have letters from Home Office proving that I am not elligible for what Global Visas told me I am elligible. They are trying to claim in front of court that a 30 mins conversation in which they told me lies and what documenst I should bring them is worth 690 pounds and any work after that with filling in the aplication form and submiting documenst should be done for free. This is a scam definitely as they want your drecit card details and sign a contract even before they check your documents to see if you have any chance when you apply for a visa.

              First Global visas they are not solicitors or lawyers , they are just advisers with no university qualification but they want to charge you 1300 pounds per hr for phone calls only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.

              So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS , KEEP ON COMPLAINING

              i AM FROM uk SO I CANNOT HELP MUCH PEOPLE IN INDIA BUT I CAN HELP WITH ADVICE PEOPLE IN UK

              FIRST step is

              complain to

              http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

              they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
              will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them.


              after that complain to

              Scambusters Team
              Office of Fair Trading
              Fleetbank House
              2-6 Salisbury Square
              London
              EC4Y 8JX
              email:oft.gsi.gov.uk

              if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court and close them down

              for people who write complaints it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas and ex director was disqualified in 2008 for serious breaches and you can print this information from the internet and use that in your court case

              after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


              I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

              my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

              there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

              when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

              the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

              So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
              The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

              But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

              I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

              On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

              I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
              system".

              From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

              But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

              You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

              Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
              urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

              When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
              fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

              Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

              If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

              I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
              Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

              As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper.

              If Liam Clifford was disqualified as a direct, the present director called Brian Palmer can be disquqlified as well, you just have to complain people do your homework, be honest and fight for your rights so we can live in a fairer world with no scams
              Aug 14, 2020
              Complaint marked as Resolved 
              Ihave done some resaerch after I discovered that Liam Clifford was disqualified as a director under section 7 Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986.

              A diretor can be disqualified as a result of an investigation by the following authorities:
              The pOLICE
              DTI Investifgations
              Companies house
              The Insolvency service

              The actual diretor now of global visas is Brian Palmer because in 2008 last year Liam Clifford was disqualified after 13 yaers of runnning Global Visas after a complaint from an individual, so it can be anyone of you !!!


              So complain to the companies house

              and insolvency service

              Dear insolvency practitioner > Chapter 10 > Disqualification
              [protected][protected][protected][protected]
              [Chapter 1] [Chapter 2] [Chapter 3] [Chapter 4] [Chapter 5] [Chapter 6] [Chapter 7] [Chapter 8] [Chapter 9] [Chapter 10] [Chapter 11] [Chapter 12] [Chapter 13] [Chapter 14] [Chapter 15] [Chapter 16] [Chapter 17] [Chapter 18] [Chapter 19] [Chapter 20] [Chapter 21] [Chapter 22] [Chapter 23] [Chapter 24] [Chapter 25]


              New guidance was issued by Disqualification Unit in December 1999; the following article has been reissued to remind insolvency practitioners of the compliance issues.

              1. Company Directors Disqualification Act Compliance
              The Service’s insolvency practitioner Compliance Unit (IPCU) has reviewed the processes for identifying practitioners who have failed to:

              pay monies into the Insolvency Services Account;

              lodge a disqualification report or return within six months of the relevant date, or

              lodge a final disqualification return or report within a reasonable period of time after lodgement of an interim return.

              The processes for notifying the respective authorising bodies of these defaults has also been reviewed.

              CDDA

              Office holders have a duty to submit a disqualification return or report within six months of the "relevant date" as required by section 7(3) of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 and rule 4(2) and 4(4) of the Insolvent Companies (Report on Conduct of Directors) Rules 1996. IPCU will send any practitioner not lodging a return or report within six months of the relevant date a reminder letter, and a further reminder 14 days later. If no return or report has been lodged within a further 14 days after that then a third reminder letter will be issued. The authorising bodies will be notified of any of their practitioners who have received a third reminder. The failure to lodge a return or report may also lead to the Department referring the matter to solicitors to consider whether it would be appropriate to bring proceedings under rule 4(7), i.e:

              "If an office-holder without reasonable excuse fails to comply with the duty imposed by paragraph (5) of this rule, he is guilty of an offence and:

              on summary conviction of the offence, is liable to a fine…….. and
              after continued contravention, is liable to a daily default fine ….."
              If a practitioner lodges an interim return, IPCU now notifies the practitioner of the date by which he is expected to lodge a final return or report. Although the practitioner has met the requirement to lodge a return within the strict definition of rule 4, an interim return by its nature imposes a requirement on the practitioner to lodge a final return to complete his reporting duties. Practitioners are encouraged to contact Disqualification Unit at an early stage if they require any guidance or assistance with a particular case. This assists both the practitioner and Disqualification Unit by ensuring that investigation by a practitioner is targeted correctly, and allows for Disqualification Unit to have input at an early stage. It is important that Disqualification Unit receives returns and reports from practitioners at the earliest opportunity in order that it can have a reasonable period to carry out any further work required, and to ensure that proceedings are issued in appropriate cases within the two year deadline, i.e within two years of the relevant date.

              Consequently, when an interim return or report is sent, practitioners will be encouraged to lodge final returns or reports within nine months afterwards. In most cases this will be sufficient time to complete the necessary investigation, but extensions can be agreed provided the practitioner has contacted Disqualification Unit in advance. Practitioners who fail to lodge a final return or report within the time set by IPCU will receive a reminder letter. If within 14 days no return or report has been lodged, or an extension agreed, a second reminder will be issued of which the practitioner’s authorising body will be informed.

              2. Disqualification cases and IP’s costs

              A significant proportion of the Secretary of State’s costs in conducting disqualification cases under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 is made up of costs charged by IPs. These are the costs of preparation of the evidence (settling Affidavits and exhibits) and sometimes attendance at trial (for cross-examination).

              The Courts, when assessing the Secretary of State’s bill of costs after an Order has been made, often look closely at the IP’s costs. Because the hourly rates charged are relatively high, the Courts are concerned about the total bill charged by the IP, knowing it will have to be paid by the disqualified director. The Courts frequently disallow some of the IP’s charges because they believe the amounts charged to be too much. The amounts disallowed have to be borne by Disqualification Unit ("the Unit").

              To try to reduce or eliminate the number of occasions on which this happens and to ensure that the Courts are satisfied with the levels of charging in disqualification cases, the Unit proposes to introduce a standard form, to be completed by all IPs involved in disqualification litigation. This will include the type of information the Courts are likely to find helpful in assessing the costs so that they can be satisfied the amounts charged (taking into account the actual hourly rate) are reasonable in the circumstances of the case.

              The Unit would like the form to be completed as the case progresses and after each piece of work is completed. If a case is disposed of before trial the form can be called for at any time to evidence the work completed by the IP to that date.

              The principles upon which the form has been devised are as follows:-

              Reasonable Work
              The work done must be reasonable in the context of the case. Relevant factors include the nature and complexity of the case, the amount of documentation, the number of Defendants, and so forth. The work should be performed at the appropriate (and no higher) level of seniority in the firm, taking such factors into account.

              Reasonable Rates
              The rates accordingly agreed with the Unit need to reflect the seniority of the people in the firm doing the work. The rates themselves need to be reasonable. In assessing what constitutes reasonable rates, the Unit recognise that disqualification work is litigation. However, the Unit, in setting rates, will take into account the following factors:-

              the IP is already very familiar with the papers in the case;
              the IP is supported by a professional client and their lawyers;
              a great deal of work is done by Unit staff and solicitor agents, who are very experienced in this field;
              only exceptionally does the IP attend Court for cross-examination. Whilst there may be, on occasion, the possibility of a Court appearance, the vast majority of disqualification cases settle or are disposed of at Court without the need for the IP to attend.
              The firm’s standard charge out rates will inform the setting of appropriate rates, taking into account the above factors. Premium rates (if charged by the firm to other clients) will not be relevant to the Unit’s consideration for the reasons set out above.

              Amount of Time
              The amount of time likely to be spent by an IP on a particular piece of work needs to be accurately estimated. It will generally be inappropriate to set estimates by reference to ‘bands’ of hours (e.g. 4-8) or to the length of an affidavit. If more time is needed than provided for in the estimate the reasons need to be clearly identified. They may need to be produced to the Court (with any other relevant information as appropriate). The total time spent on a case needs to be reasonable and the actual work done needs to have been properly and necessarily performed.

              Duplication of Work
              The different roles performed by the Unit, its solicitors and the IPs need to be borne in mind. The Unit will be able to do much of the necessary preparation for an Affidavit and its lawyers will advise on whether the case, as drafted, is legally sound. The IP will wish to satisfy himself that the draft Affidavit accurately reflects his understanding of the position and exhibits the relevant material, but the material, both drafted and exhibited, is likely to be very familiar to the case-officer and should not therefore need to be approached as if it were new information. It is very important to avoid the misleading impression of any duplication of work, particularly since the bills fall, eventually, in successful cases, upon individuals. They are entitled to be satisfied, as is the Court, that what is charged to them in a Costs Order is fair at the end of the day.

              The form for completion (see next page) in the future is intended to ensure that accurate records are kept of all work done by IPs. This will be presented to the Court in the future assessment or taxation of costs to explain and justify the total charges made by an IP for his work or any part of it.

              Enquiries arising from the above should be directed to enforcement.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk

              3. CDDA Guidance visits

              IPCU Monitoring Inspectors are carrying out a programme of CDDA guidance visits to insolvency practitioners, both those authorised by the Secretary of State and the other Recognised Professional Bodies, to discuss ways in which disqualification reporting may be better targeted and to provide guidance on the content and format of reports. These visits are currently initiated by IPCU.

              These visits are conducted on an informal basis in order to provide an opportunity for an exchange of information on the disqualification process. The objectives are to improve the quality of reporting, assist insolvency practitioners with their reporting duties and improve The Service’s disqualification effort. A brief report of the visit will be provided both to the IP and to Disqualification Unit, although the report will NOT be passed to the relevant Recognised Professional Body.

              During the visit our staff examine a number of recent cases, usually four to six, and a mix of D1 report/D2 final return cases. A review of the investigation work carried out by the IP takes place in order to ascertain whether allegations of misconduct are appropriate and well evidenced. In addition, in one or two cases the company books and papers examined. In cases where a decision not to submit a report was made, the reasoning behind that decision will be considered. Once the cases have been examined constructive feedback is provided on those cases. They will also deal with any particular matters which IPs may wish to raise. Each visit lasts around three hours and whilst IPCU will continue to initiate some visits, we also want to hear from any IPs who are interested in receiving a guidance visit.

              To arrange a visit please contact: IPU.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk

              4. INSOLVENCY ACT 2000 (IA 2000) AND THE COMPANY DIRECTORS DISQUALIFICATION ACT 1986 (CDDA)

              The various amendments to the CDDA brought about by the IA 2000 come into effect on 2 April 2001. Those principally affecting office holders are set out below:

              ‘D’ forms

              The form of the report to be made under Section 7 (3) of the CDDA has been amended (by The Insolvency Companies (Report on Conduct of Directors)(Amendment) Rules SI 764 of 2001) to include the details of the insolvent company’s registered office in the 6 months prior to the office holder’s appointment as administrative receiver, the making of the administration order or the passing of the resolution to voluntarily wind up. This is because of the changes to Section 6 in particular the court in which the disqualification proceedings are issued. In effect the disqualification proceedings will now generally be issued where the company traded rather than where the office holder is located. Also in calculating the date for the registered office in S.6 (3A)(a) it is important to know the date that the company passed the resolution for winding up.

              Disqualification Undertakings

              It is now possible for a defendant to offer to the Secretary of State a disqualification undertaking rather than the case having to go to court. This will enable proceedings to be conducted more quickly and cheaply. However, if it is going to be quicker there is a need for office holders to adhere to the reporting guidelines and comply with section 7 (3) which requires unfitted conduct to be reported forthwith to the Secretary of State.

              Another advantage for a potential defendant will be that if a disqualification undertaking is offered prior to the issue of proceedings the Secretary of State will not usually seek to recover his costs. It will still be possible for the Secretary of State to accept an undertaking after proceedings have been issued, but in that situation the Secretary of State would normally seek his costs.

              A disqualification undertaking will normally include a schedule setting out the basis on which it has been accepted by the Secretary of State and will be a public document in the same way as a court order.

              It will normally come into effect 21 days after acceptance by the Secretary of State. .

              Permission to act and applications to vary a disqualification undertaking

              Section 1(A)(b) of the CDDA as amended absolutely prohibits a person who is subject to a disqualification undertaking from acting as an insolvency practitioner as is the case where a person is subject to a disqualification order (see section 1 CDDA as amended). The court does not have any power to give leave. In addition S.17 CDDA has been amended. The amended section also provides that only the Secretary of State is required to appear on any application for permission. It will also be open to a person who has been disqualified by giving a disqualification undertaking to apply under S.8 (A) of the CDDA for the court to reduce the period or discharge the undertaking.

              Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)

              When the legislation introducing LLPs comes into effect a disqualified person will also be unable to be a member of an LLP.

              5. Update on procedures where an IP needs an extension of time for submission of a final disqualification return/report and clarification of roles of IPCU and Disqualification Unit

              Article 1 of this Chapter covers the procedures followed by IPCU to ensure compliance with requirements to report on the conduct of directors under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986. Office holders are reminded that where they submit an interim return they are encouraged to submit a final disqualification return/report within 9 months of the relevant date. If a longer period is required a request must be made to Tony Dakin of Vetting Section in Disqualification Unit, either by email, or by fax (contact details below). Requests for extensions of time sent to Tony Dakin should explain the reasons for the delay and include a note of the expected date by which a final return/report will be submitted.

              IPCU, based in Birmingham, receives all disqualification returns/reports from IPs and enters information from them on to The Service’s database of cases, the Central Index. In maintaining the Central Index, IPCU also monitors statutory compliance, such that it is IPCU that issue reminder letters should an initial submission not be received within 6 months or, following an interim return, a final return/report is not received within 9 months, or such longer time scale agreed with Tony Dakin.

              Information from disqualification returns/report is usually entered on to the Central Index by IPCU on the day of receipt, and all disqualification reports are then sent to Disqualification Unit, 21 Bloomsbury Street, London, again generally on the day of receipt. Once an IP has been submitted a final report then all further contact should be with Disqualification Unit rather than IPCU.

              Upon receipt of a D1 report by the Vetting Section of Disqualification Unit, the case goes through a pre-vetting procedure, in order to look into the financial history of the directors, and to identify links with any previous or current insolvencies in which they may be involved. The case is then vetted using a grading system, and a decision is made. The decision is to either “take forward” for further investigation, which happens at present in about 36% of cases, or to “not take forward” for further investigation, if the vetter does not consider that it is appropriate use of Disqualification Unit’s resources. This can happen for a number of reasons, the most common being: the unfit conduct is criminal in nature and the matter will be referred to, or is already being dealt with by, another government department; the evidence to support an application for disqualification is not available; the Official Receiver is already involved and dealing with the matter or a related matter; or the allegations are not serious enough on their own.

              If you disagree with the Unit’s decision, we are happy to review it, provided you contact us and make available any additional evidence you may have. Vetting cases is not an exact science, and sometimes we can reach the wrong conclusion.

              6. D Return Reminder Letters
              During June 2003, IP Unit in Birmingham will be piloting new workflow software covering the submission of D reports and returns, the initial sifting and targeting of cases, through to the final investigation stage (but only within the Birmingham Investigation Team). The Savvion software has been customised especially for The Insolvency Service.

              If no D return has been received 6 months after the Insolvency date, an initial letter advising IPs that the D return is late will be produced by the system. If no return/report is received within 2 weeks of this notice a further letter will be sent and the failure by the IP will be reported to their licensing body. A reminder to the IP is then produced every fortnight until a return is received.

              Extensions to the time allowed for submission of a full D report o[censored]p to 9 months will usually be granted. An extension over 9 months may be granted but only after discussion with staff in IP Unit and only if the extension is justified and appropriate.

              The software will allow various performance reports to be obtained. This information in terms of quantity and quality will be used as part of the process of monitoring IPs. The consideration of D reports now takes place in Birmingham. The manager in charge of this is Tracey McLean, Tracey.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk. The aim of the section is to decide, within 3 months of the receipt of a report in the majority of cases, whether or not to further investigate. IPs will continue to receive a letter advising of the initial decision and giving some feedback.

              If you wish to contact IP Unit regarding any of the decisions made, or the progress of D reports, please contact Tracey and her team in Birmingham. Full contact details were provided with Dear IP no.11.

              7. Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 – "D" Forms

              Following on from the Enterprise Act 2002, there are some consequential amendments to be made to the D Forms. The references to "administration order" in these forms should be read as to include all appointments of an administrator.

              IPs are also reminded that there were changes to the D form brought about by the Insolvency Act 2000, article 4 Dear IP March 2001 refers, and that from now on, any incorrect forms submitted will be returned.

              Any enquiries may be addressed to the disqualification team in Birmingham – see Dear IP no.11 for contact details.


              [protected][protected][protected][protected]

              8. Update on the procedure on disclosure of the D report or decision

              All enquiries, made direct to insolvency practitioners about the D decision and requests for copy returns or reports must be referred, in the first instance, to Disqualification Unit, Case Targeting Section in Birmingham, Tracey McLean on[protected] or e mail Tracey.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk, and the Unit will arrange for disclosure if appropriate. This also includes all requests made under the Data Protection Act for report or return.

              This includes all requests from creditors, licensing bodies, regulators and investigating authorities such as the Police and the Inland Revenue. This is because the report is produced in compliance with a statutory obligation under section 7 (3) and the purpose of the statutory regime under which that duty arose was to enable the Secretary of State to use the report in considering whether or not to procure the institution of disqualification proceedings. That being so, it would appear that in the ordinary course the SoS could not make use of the report for other purposes.

              The Secretary of State’s current policy on disclosure of D reports to defendants in Director Disqualification proceedings, both in England and Wales and Scotland following the decision in Barings is that

              1. Legal professional privilege is no longer claimed for D-Reports

              2. Public interest immunity will only to be claimed for D-Reports in very exceptional circumstances

              3. In each case where access to the D-Report is sought disclosure will be made so long as:

              i) express Undertakings were given to the effect that the D-Report will only be used for the purpose of the proceedings i.e. the disqualification proceedings, and

              ii) the D-Report was provided on the basis that it is not conceded that it passed the threshold test for relevance in legal proceedings.


              D reports may also be passed to other regulators where there is an appropriate gateway. However the disclosure of all reports is cleared by solicitors to check for any Data Protection Act issues, particularly about sensitive personal information, but this is not a check to see whether the report may contain defamatory matters.

              The Secretary of State has successfully resisted, on appeal, an application for disclosure by the defendants to a liquidator’s action on the basis that the report was not relevant to the action and merely reflected the liquidator’s personal view (see In Re Harris Adacom Limited 19 September 2000 unreported)

              Whilst it may be possible also to claim some form of immunity from suit as practitioners are reporting as part of a statutory duty (see latterly the decisions of the ECHR in the cases of Taylor v United Kingdom and Mond v United Kingdom both on 10 June 2003) practitioners should bear in mind that disclosure of D report is more likely than not, in cases where proceedings are contemplated and therefore a report should contain only facts, not speculation, and only contain relevant and pertinent information and should not be a means for passing secret or dubious information.

              9. Extensions for Submission of D Reports/Returns

              Enforcement Directorate, Case Targeting Team, welcomes Allan Mohan as the new Compliance Manager, replacing Ian Evans. IPs should contact Allan (email Allan.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk) in the first instance where they become aware of difficulties in achieving the six-month deadline for submission of D returns.

              IPs are reminded that there is no statutory power for any extension and that they should submit returns as soon as possible, ie as soon as they are able to make a decision. It is not necessary for all lines of enquiry to have been exhausted if sufficient information is already available, and in particular where there are strong indications that the return will be a D1, then the earlier it is submitted the better.

              IPs are also reminded that any extension over six months must be justified and merely stating that enquiries are continuing will not be sufficient. The request should provide details of the outstanding enquiries, how these will be progressed and what benefits they will have to the final report. In future extensions will only be granted in retrospect where there are exceptional circumstances.

              When deciding whether to request an extension, consideration should be given to the nature of the outstanding information, eg the receipt of a director’s questionnaire is unlikely to influence the decision whether disqualification proceedings are appropriate and the submission of the report/return should not be delayed for this reason.

              It should also be noted that it is the IP’s responsibility to decide whether disqualification proceedings could be commenced; it is the Secretary of State’s decision whether any such proceedings are in the public interest. Therefore any D2 submitted with accompanying documents will not be considered as a potential D1, it will be assumed that the IP has reached a decision to submit a D2 based on this information and it will not be reviewed further by the Case Targeting Team. The only exception to this is where notice has been received that there is a particular interest in an investigation of the case where a D2 has been submitted, this will then be reviewed and queries may be raised with the IP.

              Exceptionally, where there is very strong public/media interest in a case IPs should advise the Case Targeting Team as soon as such interest becomes evident.

              10. New Reminder Letters
              The Insolvency Service is increasingly aware from court judgments, from legal advice and in applying the principle of fairness required of the Secretary of State, of the need to reduce the time taken to bring disqualification proceedings against unfit directors. From a wider perspective this also makes sense as earlier action against culpable directors will remove them from the market place and therefore reduce the risk to the public from future misconduct. It should also allow a comfortable period before the limitation date to allow defendants more time to make representations to the Secretary of State with a view to establishing all the facts of a case and so avoiding inappropriate proceedings.

              One element of the time taken to bring proceedings is the time taken for the officeholder to report to the Secretary of State. The Service is currently reviewing all its investigation processes to identify efficiencies and must seek the co-operation of IPs in reporting within the statutory six-month period.

              To assist IPs in their case management, from 1 April 2004 the Case Targeting Team will issue a reminder letter to IPs five months from the date of their appointment if they have not submitted a report or return by this time. A further letter will be sent if no submission is received, or extension agreed, by one week before the expiry of the six-month period.

              If no report or return is received by the six-month deadline, and no extension has been agreed, a further reminder will be issued and the failure to comply with the statutory reporting duties will be reported to the IP’s authorising body at that time. The authorising body will be asked to deal with that issue as a formal complaint.

              IPs’ attention is drawn to the guidance regarding the circumstances in which an extension will be considered set out in Article 9 of this chapter.

              If an extension has been granted, but the report/return is not submitted by the agreed date, the IP’s authorising body will be notified of the breach without further reminders.

              IPs are reminded that they may contact the Case Targeting Team[protected] to discuss a case if they are unsure whether particular conduct warrants submission of a D1 report, although the Team will not direct the IP’s enquiries/investigation and the responsibility for the decision to report either fitted or unfitted conduct remains with the IP.

              11. Disqualification Undertakings In Northern Ireland

              Legislation recently introduced in Northern Ireland allows disqualification undertakings to be accepted from directors, which will have the same effect as if they were disqualification orders made by the court. Those whose undertakings are accepted in Northern Ireland are banned from being involved in the management of a company in Northern Ireland.

              Parliament anticipated that this legislation would be introduced in Northern Ireland, and section 7(2) of the Insolvency Act 2000 incorporates a power to allow the Secretary of State to make an Order to provide that a person subject to a Northern Ireland disqualification undertaking is also prohibited from running a company in Great Britain.

              This power has now been exercised and The Insolvency Act 2000 (Company Directors Disqualification Undertakings) Order 2004 (S.I 2004 No. 1941) came into force on 1 September 2004. This will provide a greater degree of protection for the public by preventing those considered “unfit” in Northern Ireland from running companies here. The effect of this new Order is to mimic provisions that already exist here (section 12A Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986) which prevent those subject to disqualification orders made by the courts in Northern Ireland from acting as directors in Great Britain.

              Simultaneously, The Companies (Disqualification Orders) (Amendment) Regulations 2004 (S.I 2004 No. 1940) have been made, which permit information about disqualification undertakings accepted in Northern Ireland to be kept on the disqualified directors register at Companies House. This means that those searching the register will be able to obtain information about persons who are banned from running companies in both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

              12. Changes to the procedure for filing D returns/reports in respect of Scottish registered companies

              With effect from 1 April 2005, the Enforcement Directorate, Case Targeting Team, Ladywood House, 45-46 Stephenson Street, Birmingham, B2 4UP will be responsible for receiving and dealing with all disqualification returns/reports from IPs, including those reporting on the conduct of directors of Scottish registered companies.

              IPs reporting on directors of Scottish registered companies should note that reminder letters are issued by the Case Targeting Team, Birmingham at earlier intervals (i.e. at 5 months after date of appointment, 1 week prior to 6 months after date of appointment and a final reminder at 6 months) than those currently issued by the Edinburgh office. After 1 April 2005, reminder letters will be issued to IPs reporting on Scottish registered companies, as per the time frame identified above. If no report or return is received by the six month deadline and no extension has been agreed with the Case Targeting Team, the final reminder will be issued and the failure to comply with the statutory reporting duties will be reported to the IP’s authorising body at that time.

              For guidance on full guidance on the issuing of reminder letters and on requesting extensions for submission of D reports/returns, please refer to Dear IP issue no.17 – March 2004.

              13. Submission of Conduct Reports under the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986

              With effect from 3 April 2006, two changes come into force which will affect the submission of director conduct reports to the Case Targeting Team .

              1) The reference number for the submission of conduct reports by DX has changed to: DX 713901, Birmingham 37.

              The previous address (DX 713897) remains effective for all correspondence to the Insolvency Practitioners Unit in Birmingham.

              2) The Case Targeting Team will take over the vetting of all conduct reports for cases located in Scotland. These reports were previously submitted to, and vetted by, the Disqualification Investigation Team in Edinburgh.

              Insolvency Practitioners appointed in Scottish cases are therefore reminded that from 03 April 2006 they should send conduct reports to the Case Targeting Team in Birmingham, using either the new DX number shown above, or the following postal address:



              The Insolvency Service, Case Targeting Team, 5th Floor - West Wing, Ladywood House, 45-46 Stephenson Street, Birmingham B2 4UZ.

              Any queries in respect of these changes should be directed to CTT.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk

              14. Targeting D1 Conduct Reports for Investigation

              The Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 places a duty on liquidators, administrators and administrative receivers to report suspected unfit conduct by company directors to the Secretary of State, those reports being prescribed by The Insolvent Companies (Reports on Conduct of Directors) Rules 1996 and The Insolvent Companies (Reports on Conduct of Directors) (Scotland) Rules 1996. In all instances the Conduct Reports/Returns should be sent to the Case Targeting Team at Ladywood House, Birmingham. Current projections are that approximately 3900 D1 Conduct Reports will be submitted in the year to 31 March 2007.

              The principal role of the Case Targeting Team (CTT) is to consider all D1 Conduct Reports with a view to identifying those cases that are appropriate for investigation. Each review includes a detailed consideration of the conduct report, supporting documentation, any other available information and usually includes telephone contact with the practitioner and searches of Companies House and other databases.

              The decision whether or not to target a case for investigation takes account of the seriousness and timing of the alleged misconduct, the reasonableness and impact of the alleged misconduct on the solvency and failure of the company, the profile of those who have lost as a result of both the misconduct and the insolvency, the human rights and ability of the directors to defend themselves, and government policy towards both encouraging enterprise and detecting and deterring fraud and other misconduct.

              Once the case has been targeted for investigation (usually within 8 weeks of submission of the D1), the case, complete with the D1 and supporting documentation, is forwarded to the Initial Investigations Team (IIT – see article 15) (for English and Welsh cases) and to the Disqualification Investigations Team in Edinburgh (for Scottish cases). Given the creation of IIT and in order to avoid nugatory work for insolvency practitioners CTT will no longer notify them that cases have been targeted for investigation or request letters of authority. CTT will notify insolvency practitioners in those cases not targeted for investigation in the usual way.

              15. Creation of the Initial Investigation Team

              Background

              The Department of Trade and Industry has suffered some unforeseen demands on its budgets in 2006/07 and as a result has been required to cut its expenditure on some of its activities. This in turn has impacted upon The Insolvency Service where the enforcement budget has been reduced by 7.5%. The consequence is that the Service will be unable to investigate as many disqualification cases as originally planned.

              This means that The Insolvency Service has had to reconsider its priorities for taking cases forward and, to that end, the Initial Investigations Team (“IIT”), has been created within The Investigations Directorate. Based at Boulton House, in Manchester it is managed by Anthea Barker, Senior Examiner, and will be responsible for ensuring that available resources are allocated most effectively.

              IIT will be responsible for the management of prospective IP disqualification cases in England and Wales, in the time between the selection of cases by CTT and the allocation of cases for investigation to the Disqualification Investigation Teams based in Birmingham, Manchester and London and Official Receiver’s offices.

              Scottish IP disqualification cases will be categorised and investigated by the Disqualification Investigation Team in Edinburgh.

              Classification of Cases

              Once cases are received by IIT from CTT they will be classified according to the seriousness of the misconduct and the incidence of factors determining the “public interest”. Cases will be allocated to three categories, A, B or C.

              Category A cases (which will be given the highest priority) will be those with high public interest criteria – for example fully listed public companies, cases which have attracted widespread media attention etc. The public interest decision is affected by numerous factors, including the seriousness of the misconduct, the number of complainants, prevailing case law, media interest and The Service’s overall investigative powers.

              Category C cases will be those which, after some further limited investigation, experience suggests, taking account of mitigating factors, would be unlikely to result in any disqualification.

              The remainder of the cases (the majority) will be classified as Category B cases, being cases that require investigation, and those cases will be further sub-categorised as cases likely to attract periods of disqualification of 2-3 years, 4-6 years and 7+ years.

              The Investigations Directorate currently has sufficient resources, to investigate all Category A cases, all Category B(7+years) cases and a minority of the Category B(4-6 years) cases. The Secretary of State has therefore agreed the following guidance:

              All category A and B7 + years cases will be further investigated.

              All category C and B (2-3 years) cases and a majority of the B (4-6 years) cases will be concluded by IIT, with no further investigation carried out by the Investigation Teams.

              The cases that are investigated will be selected so that they are drawn from all areas of England and Wales to ensure that there are no “disqualification free zones”. In addition the cases selected for investigation will contain a broad range of possible unfit conduct.

              The initial classification of the cases by IIT will be based on the evidence and information in the D1. If necessary, IIT will request additional information from insolvency practitioners. Case categories and/or periods may subsequently alter if and when new evidence and/or information is received.

              Shortly after the classification of the case by IIT, insolvency practitioners will be notified, in respect of Category A and B7+ cases, that the case is likely to be allocated for investigation and a letter of authority and some limited further information, as previously obtained by CTT, will be requested.

              In respect of Category B2-3 and C cases, insolvency practitioners will be advised that no further investigation is likely and therefore no further information or documentation will be sought at that stage.

              As regards Category B4-6 cases, most will be not be allocated for further investigation and no further information will be requested from insolvency practitioners. Such further requests will only be made where it becomes apparent that further investigation is likely.

              As and when the Investigation Teams have capacity to investigate new cases, these will be allocated appropriately by IIT.

              The Future

              This policy will be kept under continual review, but the early conclusion of some cases targeted by CTT, with little or no further investigation, will continue until such time as more resources become available. Those cases will however be reconsidered if the director(s) is/are involved in any future company insolvency. Expenditure on enforcement work will be restored to planned levels in 2007-08 thereby increasing our capacity for investigating cases next year.

              These decisions in no way reflect the quality of the conduct reports submitted by insolvency practitioners and insolvency practitioners are requested to continue to report unfitted conduct in the same manner as previously.

              Once IIT has become fully established, it is envisaged that it will make some focussed initial enquires in relation to the potential misconduct identified in the D1, whether by way of telephone calls or correspondence and possibly even by visiting insolvency practitioners. The purpose of such enquiries will be to facilitate the decision-making process and/or promote the progress of the investigation and/or conclude cases at an earlier stage, in appropriate cases, in order to further prioritise the use of resources.

              16. Changes in procedure affecting Scottish cases

              Since April 2006 the Insolvency Service’s Case Targeting Team, based in Birmingham, has reviewed all D1 full reports, including all those reports submitted by insolvency practitioners in Scotland. Centralising the targeting resource has lead to efficiency gains while also allowing the Disqualification Team in Edinburgh to focus on their core activity of investigating disqualification matters in Scotland. To this end, the Insolvency Service has been looking, where possible, to further unify the targeting, investigation and post section 16 letter processes irrespective of whether the case originated in Scotland or in England and Wales.

              As a result, from 1 April 2008 cases originating in Scotland, England and Wales will be subject to the same vetting, investigation and review procedures. This will mean that once an investigation is complete, cases will be submitted to the Authorisation Team in London who will take the decision as to whether misconduct is made out and whether it is in the public interest to issue proceedings. Thereafter the Defendant Liaison Team in Birmingham will progress the matters to completion of the case (with reference to the investigation team). Defendant Liaison Team will negotiate undertakings and, where appropriate, instruct Solicitors to bring proceedings at court.

              A further change within the process will see the Chief Examiner in Edinburgh take the role of the principal witness in disqualification matters. This change properly reflects the different roles of the investigator and the insolvency practitioner, and as has happened in English and Welsh cases (where it has been in operation since 2002) it will result in a reduction in the need for insolvency practitioners to review and swear affidavits and reports, or to attend court as a witness.

              However, there will continue to be cases where the Insolvency Service would like the insolvency practitioner to act as witness of fact, particularly where the alleged misconduct occurred during the course of the insolvency administration and may have caused difficulties to the insolvency practitioner or losses to the estate. As now, where an insolvency practitioner is fulfilling such a role beyond his/her statutory duty the Insolvency Service will pay the cost of the practitioners’ time, although we would wish to discuss and agree the detail with the practitioner beforehand for cost control purposes.

              Any enquiries regarding the above should be directed toward Enforcement.[protected]@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk

              17. New approach to “D” conduct reports

              From 1 September 2008 the teams formerly known as Case Targeting and Initial Investigations will combine to bring a new approach to dealing with D Reports.

              The new team, "Conduct and Complaints" will deal with all D Reports from receipt to allocation to an investigator, and will continue to operate the complaints 'Hotline'. Their working processes have been designed to handle the targeting of investigations in a more timely manner on a one-team basis; to reduce the contact with the insolvency practitioner to just one occasion prior to the usual visit from the investigator; to give a more in-depth consideration to potential investigation cases; and to give better quality and more detailed feedback to insolvency practitioners if cases are not to be taken forward.

              The team will be looking to insolvency practitioners to submit substantive D Reports at the earliest possible date within the usual six month period, reducing the use of interim returns to a minimum. It would also be useful if a letter of authority could be sent with every D Reports as this would assist in the enquiries that will be made to facilitate future decision-making.

              This change flows from recommendations made in the recent review of The Insolvency Services’ investigation and enforcement activity and should reduce the time insolvency practitioners are called upon to answer queries in the early stages of a case, improve the cases received by investigators so enhancing the likelihood of an effective outcome and improve the understanding between The Insolvency Service and insolvency practitioners about decisions relating to whether to take a case to investigation. With regard to that understanding the team will be happy to be contacted by insolvency practitioners who wish to discuss individual cases, find out what we are looking for in a D Report or if they wish to attend liaison meetings on appropriate subjects.

Our team does offer our clients the best chance of success and we appreciate if you do not meet the required qualifications bad news is never nice to hear.

We want to learn from such mistakes and improve our service to you. If we have done absolutely everything we can and you still feel let down by the laws or our company, then we want to hear from you directly. We may not be able to change the situation but at least we can explain why not.

              We would like you to shared your feelings with us, as we work hard every day to achieve 100% client satisfaction.

              If an individual feels disappointed by the Immigration laws or our actions, we want you to know we care. That is why in our Client Care Letter and on our website we list all the governing bodies we are registered with around the world to investigate all complaints if you do not wish to speak with us directly.

              Hi All,

              I was looking to apply for hsmp so I filled a form online for my assessment.
              There after I received a call from the representative of Global Visas named Mr. Swetabh Kumar. He told me that I am eligible and can proceed right away. He insisted me to deposit rs. 10000/- immediately.

              I asked him a few queries regarding the charges and eligibility conditions. He told me that we charge Rs.45000/- which includes everything. And when I asked him that I don't have maintenance funds and at this he replied that I need not to have it
              and I can apply.

              So I deposited the money . After that I received a couple of
              mails with assessment form, agreement and login details. I filled all the
              forms and submitted back.

              Thereafter I got a call that I will have to have £2800 in my account for at least 3 months. I cleared my situation to Mr. Kumar that I can't maintain these funds. I have asked you earlier abt this before applying. At this he promised me to get my money refund within a weeks time.

              But now after almost six months had past, but no response from him. Even he
              is ignoring my mails and calls. I am feeling cheated. I have reported the issue many times to Global Visas and Liam Clifford. But no one responds

              Please let me know what can i do or where can i file a complaint against Global Visas.

              Thanks,
              Vishal Gupta
              I won't go into too much detail as I'm still waiting for the money but I would absolutely endorse the advice above. I had really poor service from the same company and took them to the small claims court via the moneyclaims website. They admitted fault and the court found in my favour.

              The actual process of raising the claim on the website is really straight forward and took me about 1 hour. No legal knowledge is required - just state your case

              For the amounts taken in for visa fee's the small claims court only costs £80. If you win you get it back

              Once everything is finally settled and I get the money back in my account I'll try to provide more details
              how to sue global visas, make complaints and get your money back

              First Global Visas they are not solicitors, barristers or lawyers, they are just advisers but they want to charge you 1000 pounds per hour for a phone call only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.


              The person selling you the contract will promise you anything you want in order to make you sign a contract and get your credit card details. If after talking to your case worker it proves that what the sales agent told you is wrong they still want to charge you full fees for talking to the case worker even though what she told you is only a correction of the info the sales agent gave you .Even if the give you the wrong information they still want to charge you as whatever they say to you they call expertise and then guess what they talk to you on the phone and the phone call is not recorded so anything they say to you or you say to them cannot be proved in court because it was during an unrecorded phone call. So basically is your word against theirs. I believe it is an obvious way of misleading customers to sign a contract that is is clearly disadvantageous for them.


              Even though the sales agent tells you the fee for the whole application is a sum, the contract you sign says that the fee is only for an initial consultation and the rest of the work is done for free. The sales agent doesnt actually tell you what it says in the contract, he tells you a lie to make you sign a contract.




              So in other words if after the initial consultation ( we do not know exactly what that consultation implies as the contract is very slippery) they decide not to file a single document for you or do any work you cant get your money back because the work they said they would do for you and they didnt is free of charge according to the contract. The contract is designed basically with unfair and illegal contract terms in order to rob people off their money.I do not believe this company intends to do any work for you and help you in any way, they just want a signed contract and your credit card details so that they can ignore your calls and emails after that.

              So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

              If you are from the UK you can follow the next steps, if you are in another country you may be able to sue them using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk if you have a friend in UK who can receive at his home address the court papers and can go to court in your behalf. So if you are in another country dug out all the skeletons in your closet, your relatives you forgot about in UK, friends and find someone in uk ;)

              FIRST step is

              complain to

              http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

              they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
              will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them as they will send you a letter saying your complaint was received and is being investigated. plus if there are enough complaints maybe oisc can withdraw these peoples licence?



              then go to trading Standards and complain

              if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court

              for people who write complaints and go to court it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas is registered as disqualified in 2008 under section 7 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 ( disqualification undertaking by an individual). and you can print this information from the internet from Companieshouse which is a website run by our wonderful government and use that in your court case

              http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/a85a5d03662557af141f486e229b8186/dis_pers_apps...

              ALSO WHAT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR COURT CASE AGAINST THIS COMPANY AND THEIR OWNERS IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY INCVESTIGATED BY THE NEWSPAPERS FOR RIPPING OFF THEIR CUSTOMERS AND POSTING FALSE ACCREDITATIONS


              SO PRINT THE FOLLOWING THINGS AND TAKE THEM TO COURT WITH YOU

              http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/investigations/2002/07/one-false-mover.html


              also Liam Clifford was stupid enough to admit himself in a press release that he was in JAIL at the Old Bailey


              http://rinf.com/alt-news/surveillance-big-brother/biometrics-slammed-by-uk%E2%80...


              I quote:




              “Once he was even arrested and thrown in the cells of the Old Bailey due to his previous government job of keeping people outside the UK. During his time in the Old Bailey cells he realised his country needs help and people who work for HM Government. UK Plc should never have to spend time in the cells for a job well done”



              My personal interpretation of his press release is that he went to sleep one night in jail and he woke up thinking he was the next Mahatma Ghandi. If this is the case then Liam Clifford is just deluding himself and he should stop this delusion for the sake of his customers who deserve a much better service from a guy who is only 40 years old but he has already been in jail, disqualified, investigated by the newspapers for posting false accreditations and ripping off his clients.
              ;))

              WITH EVERY COMPLAINT YOU WILL MAKE YOU WILL STICK METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING A CARROT UP MR CLIFFORDS ARSE. SO LETS STICK AS MANY CARROTS AS POSSIBLE SO HIS ARSE IS TOO SORE FOR HIM TO SIT DOWN.


              BY THE TIME YOU FINISHED COMPLAINING A RIVER OF INK HAS FLOWN AND MR CLIFFORD HAS CURSED THE DAY YOU CALLED HIS OFFICE AND THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY:))

              complain to God:))

              I believe that by taking money from people wrongfully Mr Liam Clifford is committing a sin and the Bishop of the Catholic Church should receive from us a letter showing how Mr Clifford has sinned so he can lobby for us to Mr Clifford asking him to repent, pay the money back to people, and donate the money to the Church so that he doesnt burn in Hell in the afterlife.
              Lets ask for help from the Catholic Church, there must be a Catholic Church near where Mr Clifford lives that can ask him to repent.

              The work the Church does is illustrated here

              I mean folks Liam Clifford is selling his soul to Lucifer for the sake of a house in Croydon, London and a second hand car he is driving. I believe this is very cheap for his soul and Clifford should ask from Lucifer for a 13 million pounds mansion in Oxfordshire, a Ferrari Diablo and a helicopter to supervise his international fraud operation.


              after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the UK, I dont know how you do this in India)


              I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit


              after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


              I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

              my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

              there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

              when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

              the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

              So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
              The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

              But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

              I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

              On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

              I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
              system".

              From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

              But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

              You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

              Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
              urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

              When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
              fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

              Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

              If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

              I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
              Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

              As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

              I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

              I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.

              my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain because this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

              when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair fees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it), them wanting your credit card details before you submit any documents assessing your eligibility or chances of getting a visa, providing you with misleading information, there are endless reason but there are a few applying on your case so you have to stick to your case, just tell the truth and do your homework

              the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain



              remember to tell the truth and do research and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you, I had to do hours of researching myself into this matter, I was quite inexperienced and uninformed when I contacted Global Visas.

                Dear Sir,

                Initially have taken services from Global Visas for UK Work Permit in Mar 09 but before filling my application for UK work permit, they have told me to file for immigration to Australia as i will get better opportunities at Australia and they confirmed me to file my applicaiton in month's time but till date i am not getting any status for my application. I have already paid them Rs. 85000/- fee for the services. I have also checked, they have not lodged my application for immigration nor they are refunding my money. Request you to pls intervene.

                Complaint marked as Resolved 
                Hello, I used your services about 3 years ago and have now gained permenent residency in Australia through a de facto visa. I have unfortunately split up with my partner of 5 years and wanted to ask if this visa is still valid. I intend to stay in Australia and wanted to find out my options. Also if I want to aplly for citizenship am I allowed to leave Australia and for how long for? I hope you dont mind me contacting you again for information. Thank you so much!

                IN the uk there is a law called unfair contract terms law 1977 which protects the consumer againt companies who intentionally put unfair terms in their contracts which are defavourable to the consumer. thats why people should sue them, FOR UNFAIR CONTRACT TERMS

                LIAM CLIFFORD, THE DIRECTOR OR GLOBAL VISAS HAS BEEN DISQUALIFIED AS A DIRECTOR IN THE UK DUE TO NUMEROUS BREACHES

                HAVE A LOOK AT

                http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/ddir/dqdet.cgi?P=[protected]
                ADVERTISEMENT
                First of all I am one of the people conned by Global Visas.

                I am going to court against global visas as i canceled my contract 4 days after i signed it thinking it was a scam, i canceled my credit card and now they are taking me to court because i paid the deposit and idnt pay the rest of the money, although i havent submitted any documents and they havent done any work.I have letters from Home Office proving that I am not elligible for what Global Visas told me I am elligible. They are trying to claim in front of court that a 30 mins conversation in which they told me lies and what documenst I should bring them is worth 690 pounds and any work after that with filling in the aplication form and submiting documenst should be done for free. This is a scam definitely as they want your drecit card details and sign a contract even before they check your documents to see if you have any chance when you apply for a visa.

                First Global visas they are not solicitors or lawyers, they are just advisers with no university qualification but they want to charge you 1300 pounds per hr for phone calls only giving you info that is free of charge on the home office website.

                So to people who want to know what to do my advice is KEEP ON SENDING LETTERS, KEEP ON COMPLAINING

                i AM FROM uk SO I CANNOT HELP MUCH PEOPLE IN INDIA BUT I CAN HELP WITH ADVICE PEOPLE IN UK

                FIRST step is

                complain to

                http://www.oisc.gov.uk/complaints_about_immigration_advice/

                they dont do much, wont help you get your money back but the fact that they investigate global visas
                will be a proof for you in case you go to court against them.


                after that complain to

                Scambusters Team

                email:oft.gsi.gov.uk

                if there are enough complaints sent to them they can take the company to high court and close them down

                for people who write complaints it is worth knowing that Liam Clifford, the founder of Global Visas and ex director was disqualified in 2008 for serious breaches and you can print this information from the internet and use that in your court case

                if you go to court against global visas it will help to show the judge the owner and director of the company ws disqualified under section 7

                if you want to read more about disqualification go to

                http://www.accaglobal.com/students/student_accountant/archive/2005/53/2342490


                after that prepare yourself to take them to court( only in the uk, i dont know how you do this in India)


                I found on the internet an article written about someone else about going to court which I will present below as the guy was very explicit

                my advice is ... keep on complaining, keep proof of everything you did so you have chances in court and complain coz this is the only way to change things. send all your true stories to the authorities because if you dont complain nothing will ever change

                there are people who dont have the time to complain or they dont know to whom to complain and that is why global visas is getting away with lots of money for doing no work at all

                when you take them to court you can complain about unfair charges, unfair feees, no work done for the money, unfair contract terms( there is a law in uk about it so research it)

                the truth will always shine through your stories, you just have to complain

                So here is below the story I found on the net about how to sue them from the UK
                The name of this website, Moneyclaim Online, suggests a dodgy accident compensation service, like Claims Direct and all the other legal vultures who are pushing up our insurance premiums.

                But Moneyclaim.gov.uk is actually a website produced by our own wonderful government. To be more specific this website is run by the Court Service of England and Wales, the people who do such a fine job of punishing all the baddies out there.

                I stumbled upon Moneyclaim Online earlier this year when I was planning to sue Wilcon Homes over the faulty boiler in my house (that's a whole story in itself which you can read more about in my op about Wilcon Homes). I have sued a few people in the past; most notably NTL when they used to be called Cable & Wireless, and a dealer who sold me a car which I later found out was an accident write-off. I don't suffer fools (or crooks) gladly.

                On both of these previous occasions I won my case, although I had found the system to be intimidating and rather bewildering for ordinary people (or the 'information underclass' as we are sometimes labelled - those o[censored]s who didn't go to public school and don't have dinner parties with friends in high places).

                I am pleased to say, however, that the internet has changed the way in which ordinary folk can access justice. Or perhaps 'revolutionised' would be a better word. Although I have a very low opinion of Mr Blair and the New Labour machine, I feel that credit is due in one area. Several years ago Blair vowed that all government departments should be made more accessible to the public via the modern miracle of the worldwide web. This was one promise that Blair actually delivered - and the website I am reviewing is a good example of how Joe Public has been empowered with greater access to the "
                system".

                From what I can gather, Moneyclaim Online was only launched last year (2001). Before this time you had to go to your nearest county court in person and obtain forms and leaflets if you wanted to sue someone. From my experience these courts were far from user-friendly. They were designed for solicitors who knew the way things worked - information was sparse and the staff were unhelpful at the best of times. Anyone entering the court building without formal dress was treated in a sneering and condescending manner.

                But all that has changed. Whether you're looking for recompense from a crooked builder, or trying to get someone to pay you back a debt, you can now launch a county court claim from the comfort of your own home. Taking legal action against somebody need not be as daunting or expensive as you may think. And you don't need to pay a solicitor in order to sue someone (although I would still recommend getting good legal advice if you're unsure about the chance of your claim succeeding). As every case will be unique, I can not give an exhaustive guide to suing, nor can I give a guarantee that you will win, but hopefully I can give you a clear idea of how to use Moneyclaim Online.

                You have to pay a fee to use the service (the fees are identical to the conventional snail mail method of issuing a claim), but the fee will be relatively small in relation to the amount you are claiming for, and will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful. The court fees are on a sliding scale but work out very roughly at 10% of the amount you are claiming, eg. a claim for between £1000-£5000 will cost you £115. If your claim is below £5000, the court will automatically allocate the case to the 'small claims track' which is a basically a more informal way of dealing with it.

                Crucially you are going to need evidence. In a county court, the rules of evidence are not as formal as in a criminal co
                urt, so the judge is going to take a "common sense" look at the plausibility of the evidence presented by each party. Typical forms of evidence used in county courts are professional written reports, photographs and written statements from witnesses. You must be able to show that you gave the defendant a reasonable opportunity to settle the matter outside court. Keep a written log of every time you phoned or wrote to them. Send at least one letter to the defendant by Recorded Delivery (this will cost you 90p at any Post Office) in which you clearly outline the situation and set them a reasonable time in which to act, ideally 14 days. Clearly state that you are going to issue a County Court Claim against them unless they act within this time limit. Keep the Recorded Delivery receipt and a copy of the letter - these will form part of your evidence in court, in case the defendant denies that you gave them a fair chance to sort things out.

                When you are ready to make your claim, log on to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and register for a username and password. You then fill in a series of simple forms, providing information about yourself and the person you are suing. Finally you are asked to write the "Particulars of Claim" in less than 1080 characters, so keep it very concise and to the point. At this stage you only have to give an outline of the basic details of your claim, so limit it to a few sentences. You will have chance to go into more detail later on. The website then collects your payment of the court fee by credit or debit card. Once you're done, the claim will be posted off to the defendant at 10.00am the next working day. You will notice that your claim is issued by Northampton County Court who issue all online claims. The defendant will be given 14 days to respond. They may buy extra time for themselves by issuing an acknowledgement of service, which gives them a further 14 days to consider their options. If the defendant files a de
                fence then you will have to pay an extra £80 for an "allocation questionnaire" which is basically the next step in the process (but it's free if your claim is below £1000). Again, this £80 will have to be refunded by the defendant if your claim is successful.

                Whether you decide to settle outside court, or go to a hearing, is entirely up to you, but remember that you can drop the claim at any moment until the day of the hearing. If you are suing a company, and the case goes to a hearing, then you should make sure the case is heard at the court nearest to you. Private individuals are given this advantage when suing a registered company. You will need to ask the court to transfer the case to your nearest County Court - they will do this free of charge. To find out the address of your nearest County Court, visit www.courtservice.gov.uk/notices/county/ccadd/circu its.htm (this does not apply, however, if you are suing an individual person - the case will be automatically be heard at THEIR nearest courtroom).

                If your claim is successful, either because you won the court hearing, or simply because the defendant entered no response to your claim, you can progress the case online by applying for a warrant of execution. Basically this means the court bailiffs pay a visit to your defendant to seize goods which they sell at auction in order to pay you what you are owed.

                I found the website extremely easy to use. For any of you who are familiar with internet banking, the interface is a similar kind of thing: a status bar displays the current progress of your claim (ie. Claim Issued, Acknowledgement Filed, Judgement Issued, Warrant Issued, etc.). All the terminology on the website is written in plain English, rather than legalspeak, which I found pleasing. The website includes a user guide, and each stage in the process is accompanied by a 'Help' button which gives you a pop-up window containing a text based explanation. Moneyclaim
                Online also has a helpdesk telephone number (charged at 0845 local rate) in case you get stuck at any point. I used the helpdesk on one occasion when I had a query and I found the staff to be prompt at answering the phone and extremely helpful.

                As I mentioned earlier, I sued Wilcon Homes using Moneyclaim Online. I won the case by default because they did not enter a defence before the 14-day deadline, and I was able to complete the whole process through my computer without putting pen to paper. When my claim reached the stage at which I requested judgement, I was particularly impressed to see a feature on the site which enabled the claimant to add interest to the amount claimed. The website automatically calculates the interest at the current Bank of England rate. It was only about three pounds but I thought this was a great little touch which you would not get with the old paper-based system. Wilcon Homes paid me the full amount without a fight, which was slightly disappointing as I had been looking forward to pressing the 'Send Bailiffs' button!

                I think this website is a breakthrough in the way ordinary people can access the legal system, which until now has been elitist, old-fashioned and arrogant. It's just a shame that nobody seems to know about the existence of this website - as far as I know it has not been advertised anywhere.

                I hope this has been of some use to you. If you have any feedback on this opinion, or are aware of anything I have left out, please let me know.


                DO NOT BE AFRAID YOU CANNOT GO TO COURT AS YOU DONT HAVE ANY RIGHTS, THERE ARE PLENTY OF LAWS IN UK TO PROTECT THE CONSUMERS, YOU CAN ALSO GET FREE ADVICE ABOUT YOUR CASE GOING TO A CHARITY CALLED CITIZENS ADVICE BUREAU WHICH HAS OFFICES IN ANY TOWN IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

                Their website is


                http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/


                for free legal advice in United Kingdom go to


                http://www.communitylegaladvice.org.uk/


                after all this I wish you good luck in recovering your money from Global Visas, if they dont pay after you win in court just send the bailiffs to their office

                remember to tell the truth and do resaerch and get lots of proof and witness statements, so get together with people who suffered like you

                If Liam Clifford was disqualified as a direct, the present director called Brian Palmer can be disquqlified as well, you just have to complain people do your homework, be honest and fight for your rights so we can live in a fairer world with no scams
                To people who dont know where to complain and they I have an idea: why dont you contact the daily mail news paper in the United Kingdom, they can run a story about the scam that Global Visas are running. So why dont you write your complaint to newspaper reporters, they would love a good story to investigate. For all the people who dont know where to send their complaint I have put together the email addresses of Daily Mail reporters, just send your complaints to the following email addresses( you can mention in your complaints that Global Visas has unfair terms in the contracts they offer to their clients, terms trapping their customers into paying full fees but Global Visas having no obligations at all in case of bad advice given – they call it expertise- or in case they would delay your visa or not return calls and emails):
                so keep on complaining to:




                s.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, s.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, v.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, e.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, j.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, r.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, m.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, peter.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, p.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, r.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, t.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, f.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk

We have even set up a special email address for you to contact us dirrectly with your complaint and we shall address it at the highest level with a view to help you.

                Dealing with any Immigration case can be a stressful time for a person. We know this from over 20 years experience and we also accept we are often in the firing line and have to break bad news to people if they do not qualify for a visa. Our team does offer our clients the best chance of success and we appreciate if you do not meet the required qualifications bad news is never nice to hear. If a person does feel let down by the legal system we aim to do our very best to explain everything as best we can.

                We are only human and even though 98.4% of our clients would refer their family to us it is possible we make the odd mistake out of 30, 000 cases per year. We want to learn from such mistakes and improve our service to you. If we have done absolutely everything we can and you still feel let down by the laws or our company, then we want to hear from you directly. We may not be able to change the situation but at least we can explain why not.

                We would like you to shared your feelings with us, as we work hard every day to achieve 100% client satisfaction.

                If an individual feels disappointed by the Immigration laws or our actions, we want you to know we care. That is why in our Client Care Letter and on our website we list all the governing bodies we are registered with around the world to investigate all complaints if you do not wish to speak with us directly. They will assess the complaint independently, and if we have let a client down these governing bodies will address it and ensure we correct the situation. We are Registered with more governing bodies world wide than ANY OTHER Immigration company.

                We receive over 4 million visitors to our website and complete over 30, 000 immigration cases each year. We send EVERY client a feedback form to let us know what they think of our service. These feedback forms are distributed once a month to our entire company. Currently 98.4% of clients say they WOULD use us again or refer us to their friends and family. The comments on those forms are on the Testimonials page of our website.

                Due to our clients’ on going support we are the largest and fastest growing Visa company in the world.

                We obviously cannot respond to any specific issues on this site but we do want to hear from you.

                On the issue of payment. We make our fees clear to all clients before we do any work and we explain everything in our client care letter. Offer payment plans for people who can not pay our full fees in one payment and do our best to accommodate our clients but, we can not work for free. Taking our knowledge and expertise and expecting not to pay for our service is unacceptable and we are certain 99.9% of clients would agree. If we allowed a person to take our services without payment all our other clients would suffer as their fees would need to increase to pay for the tiny percentage of people who believe it is right to take without payment.

                Thank you in advance for getting in touch if you have anything to say to us. We look forward to receiving your email at [protected]@globalvisas.com We have put up this special email address to make sure if you have anything to say you can come straight through to us.

                  yes i agree that global visas are cheats and they have ripped me of 977.37 pounds without doing no work. their terms of contract are unfair and whether they do the work or no they will be paid.
                  guys wake up write to home office and your local MP and stop these cons!
                  OISC is too slack hence these are still in business. Wite to office of fair trading and find other prople who have been cheated and form an union!!!
                  LIAM CLIFFORD, THE DIRECTOR OR GLOBAL VISAS HAS BEEN DISQUALIFIED AS A DIRECTOR IN THE UK DUE TO NUMEROUS BREACHES

                  To people who dont know where to complain and they I have an idea: why dont you contact the daily mail news paper in the United Kingdom, they can run a story about the scam that Global Visas are running. So why dont you write your complaint to newspaper reporters, they would love a good story to investigate. For all the people who dont know where to send their complaint I have put together the email addresses of Daily Mail reporters, just send your complaints to the following email addresses( you can mention in your complaints that Global Visas has unfair terms in the contracts they offer to their clients, terms trapping their customers into paying full fees but Global Visas having no obligations at all in case of bad advice given – they call it expertise- or in case they would delay your visa or not return calls and emails):
                  so keep on complaining to:




                  s.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, s.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, v.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, e.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, j.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, r.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, m.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, peter.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, d.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, p.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, r.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, t.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk, f.[protected]@dailymail.co.uk



                  Remember if you dont complain nothing will change so lets get this company investigated properly by the newspapers
