I am just briefing you about the worst experience we had with Involgix consultancy for processing H1B visa.
Two of my cousins and I have approached Archan Reddy (the guy from Involgix) in March 2016 for filing H1B visa. He said we have to pay 4500USD for filing the application. Since we were not having that much amount at that time, we came to an agreement that we pay 2500usd initially and once it is picked up in the lottery we need to pay the remaining.
Myself and one of my cousin were picked up in the lottery and another one was not picked up. That's the only time we have received a call from Involgix(from Archan) to remind us to pay the remaining amount and we paid it.
Unfortunately there was an RFE against our file numbers(EAC1614351356). We were not informed about that RFE. We got to know when we were checking for the status online. We called Archan for further process and he said they are going to take care of everything.
But in the month of Jan 2017 our applications have been withdrawn. We were not even informed at that time. We called again to the US office number and the indian branch, no one was responding. Finally that guy Archan simply replied via whatsapp. I had to call him again.
He said, they have not withdrawn the application and It was from USCIS end and they are going to file MTR to reopen the case.
Since then no update from their end. We had to call them once in two months. They were simply saying that its under process. I could see the same status from the day it was withdrawn.
I had asked them for coy of MTR which was filed against our File number. And,I was received one PDF(seems to be edited one) which has my name written wrongly. I had checked with them for the same, He(Archan) replied saying that application is based on Passport number, so need to worry about the mistake in the name.
Everything was framed in the same manner. No proper reply from then onwards.
I have enquired with my friends , colleagues and my company's VISA cell. They all said withdrawn can be done from Employer only. But these fellows have been trying convincing by saying that its from USCIS end and we are in process of reopening the case.
We two have literally lost 6 lacs INR (4500 USD each).
We are planning to proceed legally against these guys.
Please help us If there is any way to file case against these guys.
I know that its been two years, but they have been cheating us by giving the same response even 6 months before. When we asked the proofs for what they are doing to resolve the issue, they always tried to skip that.
So friends, be cautious while approaching Involgix for H1B process. If you are picked up in lottery and your case is approved then fine. But if there is an RFE, that's it , that's the end of the road. These guys will not do anything and simply withdraw the application.
