Find the Right Person

I have applied to Canada work permit throw IXP Visa Dubai, After reviewing all the negatives comments i decided to cancel my process where i have already deposit AED 5,500 to Ms Maricris, Once i cancel my process and ask for refund she really help me out and i received AED 4,000 despite it took six month however i appreciated her efforts and morality. Rest AED 1,500 its was taken by Ms Meha and its was not deposited to the account which is strange to have in the company to keep the money in their pocket.
But same time i am waiting for another refund AED 5,500 which should received along with for my brother i believe and have the trust that i will get it.

is this all for real?
one of my friend is planning to give his initial payment to mr. Byron.
but i advised him to make a second review regarding to this company.
and as i look to these review, something wrong is happening around the negotiation.
if these is real.. well i guess he must have to forget this offer or else he will regret this one in his whole life...

first question:

1. Agency or Company accreditation?

2. Liable Accounts and Approved assets of company?

3. Company Back ground?

4. Firm contact of the employeer?

can somebody give me answer...

thank you...

https://launchimmigration.co/ WARNING SCAM COMPANY

https://launchimmigration.co/ WARNING SCAM COMPANY
https://launchimmigration.co/ IS A FAKE COMPANY.

WARNING- Launchimmigration.co charged my credit card without my permission. They scammed me out of 1500GBP. This is the same company as IXP Visas, now registered by GARY SMITH the director of IXP Visas.

https://launchimmigration.co/ writes on their website that they are not affiliated with any director of IXP Visas. So this is the truth, Liam Clifford and IXP Visas sales were down, so they lost their EPDQ to swipe credit cards with their bank HSBC. So then Liam Clifford after the Finance director ran away - Paula, decided to plan to liquidate IXP Visas and he hatched a plan to open a new company with his finance called https://launchimmigration.co/ Launchimmigration.

He kept his circle of dummies including GARY SMITH, AMARJIT AND JENNY BUTLER and a few sales people and took out a regus temporary office in

12th Floor | The Broadgate Tower | 20 Primrose Street | London | EC2A 2EW 0207 596 2912

Liam Clifford and Gary smith are still there and dont be fooled although they wil tell you the overseas companies are 'seperate legal entities' they are still own by Liam Clifford, so in Canada they are still called IXP Visas, in Dubai they are still registered as Global Visas (but they use the name IXP visas) and in UK they are now called LAUNCHIMMIGRATION.CO/

same scam, same idiots, same theives.

Be very very careful of them, they were not set up to help IXP Visas clients, they were set up independently to fool people to show IXP is in liquidation and we are a new seperate company.

How is it on their facebook page and website they write they have over 15 YEARS experience, when the company was only set up 2 months ago????

Gary Smith is a fool, desperate, cant find another job and Liam Clifford is a thie

Global Visas Now Launch Immigration Ltd

First they were Global visas, then they changed to IXP visas and also IP visas, now they are called Launch Immigration Ltd.

Avoid these liars, they take as much as they can from innocent people and closed down legally so you can't take your money back from them.

Their staff are all low life scum who will get what karma gives back to them. They are the reason why people like Liam Clifford can get away with doing this and live a comfortable life. They are sleazy sales people only after one thing... your money.

Please sought help from your local embassy, no matter how busy they are, don't fall for their lies and entrapment.

I have come to know that www.ixpvisas.com or IPvisas.com (previously called globalvisas.com) have CLOSED thier office in London wihtout telling any clients. I just signed up there at the offices in

Salisbury House,
First Floor,5 Cranmer Road,

only 1 month earlier, they happily charged 1200 gbp to my account by a credit card, consultant called Ruzel Uddin, who seemed very friendly at first and then promised me a job in canada, that it will take 4 months to do my work permit and that canada has plently of jobs and opportunities total package 2400 gbp. He said I must pay half and then passed me over for a 'consultation' with some girl who didnt know half of what she was talking about.

I know have desperately visited their offices, but it is empty nobody ther. Have frantically called their number and have found out from their neighbours next door - at the Prince Trust- who said that they are all gone and that www.ixpvisas.com in london is liquidated now??? gone bankrupt. I called called their so called 'canada ffice no body ansered and then the 'dubai' office and the reception there -Joan was nice enough to first lie to me that they are a different company but yes then admitted - LONDON OFFICE is gone bankrupt. What about my case? more importantly what abou the fees to pay? I mean i have read lots of reviews and now seen that their owner Liam Clifford previously was made bankrupt and now this?

they are so many articles about the guy, it was even in the daily mirror and on TV in south africa. I mean how is it that these guys are still operational?????

I will be contacting the news paper and watchdog as this is not right, ixpvisas.com or ipvisas.com whatever the hell their name is is a scam. and i can see hear all their branches are a scam.

By the way i tried to chat to 'someone' on their facebook page who when i asked about my file or my money back tried to delete my comment, thats customer service for you- my case id is 400031

Jesus, what the hell to do now? can anyone advise how I can get my money back?

I have also contacted a citizen advice bueroe and showed them my 'contract' which is basically an email and I havent signed a written document, and my case is not allowing me to log in anymore on their system, my case manafer is not answering my call, her name is jean, so whats going on??

Can someone please help me, should i contact the liquidator in London??? who can I write to?

Is there anyone else who signed up with the UK office to find out now that IXPVISAS.COM is a fraud and HAS CLOSED its offices in london now without telling its clients?????

gys I am looking for help, please let me know what I can do, this is a huge amount of money to lose.
