Cobus Kriek @ Matrixvisa Thank You

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We would just like to share with you our experience throughout this whole stressful, emotional roller coaster process.....

My Husband was fortunate enough to receive a written job offer last year in Edmonton. Very thankful :D

One year prior to him receiving a job offer we were thinking of Immigrating to Canada and came across a Immigration company named Global visas, also known as IXP Visas. Unfortunately we fell victim to this incompetent company who took us for a ride by making false empty promises by assisting us in finding jobs in Canada etc....and scammed us out of a lot of money.

Avoid these liars, they are a dodgy immigration advise and services firm, please stay away from them!!!

And so when he received the job offer June '14 we thought to ourselves well we already paid Global Visas all this money the least that they could do was to process our Work Permit applications....Biggest mistake of our lives! :cry:

When they submitted our applications Aug '14 on our behalf they messed it up so badly our applications got REFUSED Oct '14, we were devastated to say the least but we were not ready to give up hope just yet.... second time round we did some proper research and came across Cobus Kriek (ex South African) from Matrixvisa whom assisted us with resubmitting our applications 03 Dec '14 and today we received passport requests!!! :D

A very big thank you to Cobus for his professional service and assistance in helping us. I highly recommend him to anyone looking at immigrating or going over on Work Permits. :ilikeit:

Wow CharJay!! Im so happy your story worked out and that Cobus was able to help you! So sad that people are willing to take you for a ride-they know that we (people applying for immigration) are usually new at this thing and then they take advantage of you...

Once again congrats!!!

We were also scammed by global visas... We used Dianne, but since she no longer does this line (she specialises in study permits now) i have recommended three friends to Cobus recently - I have only heard good things about him! I really hope he can help them too!

So happy for your success!!!

PS - we are in Edmonton, so feel free to send us a PM if you would like to meet up or if you need help with ANYTHING!!!

We were also duped by Global Visas/ IXP, I do not know how this company is able to remain open, that said, our friends were lucky enough to get work permits through Global Visas.

Almost fell for Global Visas too. A guy called Imtiaz was very "glad met die bek" when he sent the quote his mail stated that he had been trying to phone me but I had my phone on me the entire time. Quote was for R34k for a family of 4. When I had a look at the T&C's and the "service" they were selling me was basically to set up my Express Entry and provide a link to free IELTS tests. I just had the weirdest feeling about Global Visas and couldn't place my finger on it. Needless to say I saved my family that money Thank God!

There is also Nico Breed of NB Law and Theuna de Waal, of Athabasca Immigration worth consulting with them, very honest and transparent, but direct. No chancers
