Below is an experience shared by one of our anonymous readers suggesting to beware of the websites like H1Bullet.com, where the user was cheated. Thanks to the user for sharing the experience. You can share yours here . We always recommend not to use any online services that do false promises like beating H1B lottery, you can file multiple from employers without issues, etc. You may read the article How to Find H1B Sponsors on some general advice.
I was just looking online on to find H1B Sponsors and just went to this website called H1Bullet.com via Google. It says things like how to beat the H1B lottery…if you accept the free webinar by giving email, it lets you in. The website is really made to entice you and buy it…very promising for anyone new and who does not know the reality…The guy who speaks on the webinar that is recorded has a very thick voice( some European descent I would say ) and claims by some pseudo Indian name called Jaspreet Singh with an an image of a Sing picked up from freedigialphotos website ( I later checked, it is http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/corporate-indian-guy-over-white-photo-p221210 ) .
I thought for a minute and said to myself, how the hell is this possible to beat lottery and get to know all this. I knew that it was going to be some kind of a trap, but to my curiosity I said, fine let me spend $20 USD and see, what will happen. The guy says that he will give you the entire list of companies that sponsor you H1B, etc and how you file multiple petitions, etc. You do not get any email or anything, it is just a big trap. You just get an on screen code that authenticates and shows you a big document with list of few employers and their phone numbers. Nothing ! Big scam.
Anyways, when I went to payment, I picked PayPal, hoping that I would get a refund, if it is scam. As it turned out that, it was a scam and I wrote to PayPal that I did not get what I wanted and couple of days later, I got my money back. I am happy to get it back. But, I took a chance, I am sure some of you are curious like me, but you never know, if you would get a refund…be careful !
My whole idea of sharing this experience with the blog readers is that there are many people like me, who are searching online for sponsors and can get into a trap. Were you in any other traps ? Please share it, if you were in some kind of trap like mine.
