13 Reviews
This is a fake job scam! There is no job! Do not send documents or money! Read to find out how to tell when a job offer is a scam and If you are not interviewed face to face, in person, the job offer is Always a scam! If you are asked to pay fees for a visa or work permit or anything else, the job offer is a scam!

The scammers send you to a fake legal verification company that supposedly verifies your documents. The name of the fake company is OFC Legal - They ask you to pay 10500 rupees. If you make the mistake of paying that, they will ask you for more money for some fake fee. They scam will continue until you realize you have been scammed. Realize it now and save your money!

These scammers have run this same scam at least three times. Read

This is the scam email for the fake solicitor. If you make the mistake of paying this fake fee they will demand more money for another fake fee until you realize you have been scammed and stop paying. You will not be reimbursed! It is like expecting a thief to break into your house and return items he has already stole from you.

Thanks for your information.. I too got the mail from Jberry Solutions and OFS Legal. I searched for the same on the web. Jberry Solutions website looked some what convincing, I had very much doubt on OFS Legal. My doubt has become more stronger when they asked for the deposit of Rs. 10500 into the account of Wingsol Solutions. I started thinking, why these people are asking to deposit money into the account of other company's name. I again searched for Wingsol Solutions several times on web. But could not find it, instead I found winsol solutions... another thing is, Jberry Solutions is not giving the details of the client they are recruiting for by saying silly reasons..Now with your review, I got full confirmation about the scam. But one thing I couldn't understand is, how these people are managing to call the victims from Chippenham, UK. My friend lives in UK and I enquired with him about Jberry Solutions. He said it is not a much popular company and suggested me not to pay any money. That means Jberry is also a fake company...

Thanks once again...

No real job offer requires you to pay money for anything ever!!! No real employer offers you a job without a face to face, in person interview. There are no exceptions to those rules whatsoever! Read

Scammers can use VOIP or programs that spoof caller ID or redirecting phone numbers to appear to be in places they are not.
Gyus after reading many complaints regarding JOHN BERRY LIMITED fake OFFER LETTER by jberrysolutions and OFSLEGAL Company appointed for background verification I did some research and found out that OFSLEGAL i.e is also a FAKE WEBSITE.Its contents are copied and pasted from original website named

Check the contents of both website you will come to know that everything is copied from the original real company LAWSENATE.

OFSLEGAL is FAKE, It is made to cheat candidate in the name of background verification fees and charging 10500/- for FAKE Background processing.There is no such company exists.Please stay away from this company and don't give them a single rupees. website should also get suspended like website ... both companies are cheating candidates.
Thank u so much guys for making this forum. I was about to do the payment and was ready with all the documents which they had asked for. My instinct just stopped me and I went to google to check with the OFS Legal and their address. To find the same exact format of the mail and the mention about the same amount of Rs. 10500/-. Thank u once again hope this is reached to as many people as possible.
I also had a same issue and gave the money to them, if I spoke to them for refund, they are ready to do that and asking bank detail.

Gautam Manral's reply, Nov 22, 2017
I am with you, Also we can register a OFS legal agent complaint to Ministry of External affairs.
Dear All,
I am also received same email, They asked verification amount 10, 500 I am read your comments John berry Ltd no jobs there is fake.
Thanks a lot for everybody for your comments.
Why ain't the govn't taking any necessary action against cyber fraudulent's these people are not only playing with others job it's even a matter of there life and emotions which are being affected
Guys when ever you receive any of the job opportunities from any foreign employer.

Please go through the details on Ministry of External Affairs website.
They states that a foreign Employer can do recruitment in 2 ways .
1. Direct - But they should have a permit from Ministry of External affairs .
2. They can nominate a recruitment agent but you should check their original Registration certificate issued by Protector General of Emigrants ans check whether the agent registration is valid and same can be checked on Ministry website

Also, check Any Demand letter or Power of Attorney duly executed by foreign employer to agent for recruiting on their behalf.

Also, remember no employer ask for any fees for documentation or for registration.


I came to know now as it's a fraud company last week i have paid 10500/- to OFS for verification. please suggest how we can get refund it.
Hi Syed, You made mistake.Even after so many comments posted on various websites regarding this FAKE company and

Ask OFSLegal about the status of your VISA processing, if they are saying your background verification is failed then they are cheating you because they are doing the same thing with every candidate whoever has given money to them.

If you have paid money to them and they are not refunding it then you should definitely lodge a complaint in your local police station with all details.They will be forwarding it to cyber cell and will try to get your money back if not then atleast they will stop them doing such FRAUD thing.
One more fake company and background varification agency !!!

This is DKM CONSULTING LIMITED ( and background screening is only1check (
