Thank you very much AtHomeInMontreal, I just about to send the money for my CAQ processing to them, but now I am extra careful, I even check the Ranch on Google Maps but it does'nt appear...

Hi JeanRobin,

I'm certainly glad that the many posts by forum members contained in this thread have helped. 

There are a lot of legitimate firms out there but the immigration business seems to be attracting more shady operators these days.  Sometimes they are set up in a very convincing manner.

Good luck in your search and feel free to post if you need help.  There are some really great people here that will do whatever they can to assist.

Thank you very much for your kind AtHomeInMontreal...it is difficult now these days in the internet world to find out who can trusted to....especially if these case that there is money involvement...Thank you very much once again, I just about to leave my present job here in Saudi Arabia because of these amazing offer going to Canada.... :-[

All:

If anyone still wants to have faith in Windmill Immigrations, aka "windmillimmigrations.com" then you should check out the "about us" page from the following company.  Notice any similarities in the language, as well as the order of sections?  

http://www.akbarmanpower.com/about-us.html

I don't know if akbarmanpower.com is legitimate or not - they may be.  Their site seems to have been harvested for content used within windmillimmigrations.com.  Some content was slightly altered (location, etc) and some that wouldn't make sense was not carried over.



And, while we are on the subject, here's where the home page content for Cathy Ranch and Farms, aka "cathyranchandfarms.ca" was harvested:

http://snakeroot.net/farm/AboutOurFarm.shtml

Some locational edits were made and some content was not used from this site, but it's the same folks.

Snakeroot Farm is a legitimate site.  Cathy Ranch and Farms isn't.

Here's where they got the photos and other data for the Cathy Ranch and Farms site:

http://www.viviun.com/AD-168388/

That's a legitimate sales listing for a property here in Quebec.



Please be very careful about who you trust, even if they seem to have a legitimate website. 

These scams usually progress from small amounts of money to larger and larger amounts.

Watch out when...

The agency contacted you; you didn't initiate the process.  They might have contacted you after you post questions on the Internet, etc...Promises are made that you will somehow receive priority treatment, or that your visa acceptance is "guaranteed"...The agency address does not appear when searched on Google or another mapping service...Their phone number returns "no record found" when searched in a reverse directory such as http://www.411.ca/ or a similar service located in the country where the business is based.  This probably means that you are dealing with a cell phone or an online number rather than a landline.  Not good if you are supposedly working with a reputable agency...They are using disposable email addresses (gmail, yahoo, etc)...They ask for payment only via a money transfer service...There is always "something else" needed, and you experience delay after delay - delays that can be solved if you just send in more money...They provide you with only scanned (email or faxed) documents / approvals rather than original documents sent by a recognized carrier/courier...They are unable to provide tracking numbers that are active and available online for verification when documents were supposedly sent to you; they may provide tracking numbers but they never seem to work...Their website was built usng a free online service...Their website is hosted by a free hosting service...

I hope this information helps.
