MIDAS INC. Immigration Consultants FRAUDS!!!! - Don't let them play with your career
Address:  A-22, 1st Floor,Block- A, Sevak Park Dwarka Mor,Near Dwarka Mor Metro Station,New Delhi-110059

In October 2011 we received an email from Midas Inc. Stating that I have a good chance of getting my Canadian PR all I need to do is send in my documents for a free assessment. So I did. In 2 days I received an email from their end saying that I qualify for the PR and they can help me get a job in Canada along with the PR.
We decided to meet them and so we fixed up a meeting with their representative. She explained the whole process and said that they will get me a job (interviews taken through a video conferencing)... get my AEO and finally file my PR within 9 12 months. I was very convinced and decided to give it a go..
They took all the documents from me in May. I started suspecting that something was wrong when they got 1 formed filled 4 5 times. The form was very basic and just required my family details. I used to get no calls from their end so I followed up with them every now and then. In May they said that my papers have been filled and I have to wait for 3 months. I asked them for what did you file my papers for?? I don't even have a Job offer or an AEO. They said 1st we file the acceptance and then we will get me a job. I asked them why I wasn't told anything about the acceptance before. They said it is an important part of the process. I researched on my own but could not get an answer for what acceptance really means. In July after constant inquiry I found that they didn't send my papers for anything. After shouting at them they sent my papers (don't know where they sent it) and just mailed a postal courier slip to prove that they sent it. They said I will receive an email from the Canadian authorities informing if they accepted my application or not. I didn't receive any thing for for 2 months.. I was all worried I knew something was not right.. they then said that my 3 months period ends on 27 feb. If by then I don't receive anything they will contact the Canadian authorities them self. On 27th my patience ended and I decided to go and meet the. And I couldn't believe what they said next- they told me that my application was rejected.. I told them that according to you I should have gotten a reply on my email regarding that but I didn't get any. How do u know if it got rejected? They gave me a letter from Canadian authorities who stated that my application was incomplete, didn't contain any Job offer or AEO (They didn't even work on my AEO). And the date at which the application was sent by the Canadian authorities was 20th Nov 2012 and I was not informed about it till 27th Feb 2013. More over.. They didn't send my AEO (How can they send an incomplete application). They didn't do anything regarding it. And when I read the full application I was shocked to know that they directly applied for my PR and not the acceptance. A straight jump from step 1 to step 4. Where did step 2 and 3 go??? They took INR Rs. 2, 50,000 from me. I am now struggling to get a refund back from them. They are sending me emails from a fake legal ID... and outsourced a lawyer who till now doesn't even know my name or details regarding the refund (it's been more than a month since I filled for it).
It is a request Please DO NOT trust MIDAS Inc. They are nothing but a bunch of unprofessional and unqualified FRAUDS! I got trapped but I don't want anyone else to fall in their trap.
If you have any concerns or would like to know more contact me directly at: rs2013.23 @ gmail.com
Please don't let them play with you career.

Its bad what you went through but there are enough warnings on CIC website about such frauds. They are in bold on their homepage and its hard not to miss it !

If only you did some research before paying them or come here and posted your query, you would have saved the time and money.
Luckily you did not submit a fake AEO and hence you wont be blacklisted or banned from applying in the future.

Its amazing how these idiots thrive in this era when any information is available at a click or a tap !

The blame is always 50-50 on either side.

I hope you at least ensured that they are with CSIC . If they are, then you can lodge in a complaint about them.

I know.. But they seemed very legitimate and professional.. Didnt give an opportunity to doubt. Only when I started with the process I realized what I got into.. I just wish no one else falls in their trap..

   As soon as any agent/ consultant tell you that they will get AEO, take it a scam and stay away. Unless you want to immigrate to Canada by hook or crook. Chances are that you will loose your own money and sleep also. Even otherwise it is not worth paying money to immigrate to Canada.
   It is recession time, life is hard, it is expensive, jobs are scarce and if you pay chances are that you will never recover that money. I have met people who paid huge money to come to Canada and now are working as security guard/ labourer earning $10 per hr and cursing themselves.

It's evident that these fraudulent agents are everywhere and most of them are fraud.If it's possible lodge a complaint against them so that they do not rob another person.

Never ever believe these consultants who says will arrange job for you.

Hi

The company is in India, you are not going to get your money back from CIC or an Immigration lawyer.  If there was fraud, report it to the police in your home country.
