Syed,

Looks like you are in Pakistan and the company is an Indian company.. if in case you don't get through the lottery and the Indian company refuses to return back the money how will you get back the money...Legally how will you claim back the money...Given the strained state of relationship between the two countries it will be very difficult to get back your money...So you better explore potential sponsors in your country itself...

I agree.If bodyshopper is ready to do it freely(which they used to till 2000) its ok.But very big companies only do that for employees who have been with them over a year.Unfortunately these employers don't pay much in US to them.So from either side,its a loss.

Getting back money from a bodyshopper incase your Visa application is rejected will be tough even if you are based in India.

Do you think if you are in India you will go and file a suit against them? Given the expenses involved in this and the state of Indian legal system, you would probably think about just forgetting the whole thing.

Morale of the story: If you pay money to a bodyshopper, keep in mind that there is a significant chance that you will never get it back even though you dont get the H1B.

Some consultants are ok for a bank guarantee or a post dated cheque. This way you can make sure the company can withdraw the money only if you get the visa and you dont fly to the US. Besides 1.25 lakh is on the higher side. It wouldnt be a good idea to pay in advance.

Mav Ricky,
Did you not notice that the company name was removed from the post to which you were responding along with a note asking not to post company names and a link to the policy that explains why?
