They cheated me as well seems they have cheated hundreds of people, how do they get away with it!
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.

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

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.

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
