Go Matilda Visas in London, England - Go Matilda SCAMMED ME

11 comments
Not resolved

Paid these jokers over £1500 for them to write a simple (templated letter) knowing full well it would fail the skills match.

They kept telling me that they had processed many similar applications and that this one would almost definitely go through. Once they had my money they muttered something about the TRA changing their rules all the time.

AVOID at all costs, once they have your money they will not speak to you, they simply send emails.

SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS !SCAMMERS!

SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS!

SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS!

GoMatilda are SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS!

Poor, false, scam, don't trust GoMatilda.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

Monetary Loss: $3000.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Hello Anonymous.

Maybe the reason we are still operating in business successfully is because there aren't any "victims" (as you call them) and the so called "complaints" are without any foundation.

I have been working with Allan Collett of Go Matilda for few years. Nobody knows him better than I do.

Most of his visas applications for his clients got rejected. Allan Collett is the most irresponsible migration agent that I ever work with in Australia.

Working with him over the years has also tarnished my reputation and my practise. That's sucks!

You said you wouldn't write a templated letter for submission to TRA but that was exactly what you did!

Stop all you nonsense and scam. I wonder how you sleep at night.

Denying every scam that you have done. Denying that we haven't contacted you. Denying that we are not your clients. Denying that we didn't call you.

Pretend that you would resolve the problems.

Pretend that we have the rights to go to the migration authority but knowing how hard it is to proof and get the money back from you. Scam is your profession...you son of a bi...h!

I have no idea who you are - and so far as I know you haven't contacted me directly either.

We would not write a templated letter for submission to TRA "knowing it will fail the skills match", so you must be confusing us with someone else.

To say we don't speak to our clients is clearly also nonsense.

I suspect you are not (and weren't) a client of ours.

You are welcome to send an email to me if you are (or were) a client, or telephone our office in Southampton. I can assure you someone will pick up the telephone and will speak with you!

Go Matilda Visas - Go Matilda - I had Bad Experience With them.

32 comments

I've heard plenty of good things about them, but I had a bad experience with them.

I initially contacted Go Matilda (Australian Visas) Ltd and Alan Collett to get them to submit my visa application and they advised me that I wasn't eligible for a 176 PR and to apply for a temp visa (can't remember the number).

Even trying to prove I was eligible they said I wasn't.

So in the end I applied for the PR visa myself (and got it) and saved a shed load of cash in 2010.

So their incompetence was a good thing for me in the end.

I shared my bad experience about and Alan Collett in Poms in Adelaide - Australia Migration Forum in 2010.

But they covered it with positive reviews to drown my comment.

Now I know and believe the positive reviews about Go Matilda are mostly cooked up...

It is a good thing that someone finally speaks up and let the world know.

I see the common reply, here again, in how Alan Collett of Go Matilda answer and reply. Whenever he can't answer a question or avoid a question, he would always say: (1) "Your reply are all time stamped and with the same tone as that of each other" (2) "I can't see your name in our system" (3) "You are most welcome to contact me directly to discuss any concerns you might have".

(4) "No one has contacted me". A way to divert the audience from the original topics and a form of manipulation and distraction.

Hi Alan Collett,

Do you see any reason that the writer should contact you to discuss his/her concerns directly with you? It was clearly stated that you and Go Matilda had advised him that he/she wasn't eligible for 176 PR but instead you advised him/her to apply for a temp visa.

He/she then proceed to apply for the PR Visas himself/herself and save a shed load of cash. You and Go Matilda had provided the him/her wrong advice despite of all your trainings and certifications that you claimed. In fact, your incompetency was a blessing to him/her in the end. Your clients had already gotten his/her PR Visas so many years ago.

What's the point to contact you? What is there to discuss? The question is, how many of your clients actually have their Visas messed up because of your incompetency and left unreported?

Looking at the forums, it's hard to believe that you don't control the forums. Would you be able to tell us which forums are actually controlled by you and which are not?

Yet another posting at the same time as the several others on the 2 x complaint threads.

If you are going to post under different names at least do so at different times ...

To answer your questions:

> The only forum over which I have any control as to moderation or content is the forum on the Go Matilda website.

All others are independent of me - comments that appear on these other forums are under the control of the owners of those forums and moderators of the same. I am not a moderator or owner of the other forums to which you refer.

> The terms and conditions of our visa appointments confirm that anyone who has a complaint should contact me at first instance. If they are dissatisfied with how the matter has been handled the avenue of complaint is to the regulator of migration agents in Australia.

> In the absence of any detailed information about the person who asserts that incorrect information was given I cannot possibly give a detailed response - and in any event I wouldn't be able to do so on a website such as this, as we are bound by privacy constraints.

For all I know s/he might not have even been a client. > You are taking the comments of one person as being clearly indicative of failings on our part.

That is hardly indicative of a reasonable or fair minded approach. Best regards.

There's where you will be caught like a fish...that's fishy...!!!

Imagine, after Alan Collett had collected your money.

And "if you have a complaint you must first contact him at first instance" - Who do you think has the upper hands in the negotiation???..You know the answer...!

"If they are dissatisfied with how the matter has been handled the avenue of complaint is to the regulator of migration agents in Australia" - Could you imagine what you would you be going through by then...??? How much time will be wasted..?? What stress would you be going through..?? What changes you are going to face..??

Do you thing you will be able to get back your money...?? I suggest you read the regulator of migration agents in Australia very carefully..??

Even if you win the case, they have not power to enforce the migration agents to pay you back your money....!

My bad experience with Alan Collett of Go Matilda was slightly different.

He gave me the positive aspect of the application when I first met him.

He told me that I was eligible before looking into any of my documents based on the questions he asked me.

But once I engaged him, I hardly hear from him except when he wanted me to complete the forms or when he needed my documents.

All communications were through emails and there was no phone or personal communication after I paid him.

There was also no advice on the chances of my success in applying for my PR.

After few months, I received news from Alan Collett of Go Matilda that my application for my PR was unsuccessful. I was very disappointed and didn't want to pay more money to try again after going through much anxiety and wasted time.

Very irresponsible and bad migration agent. It was a bad memory for me.

DON'T Engage Go Matilda Visas For Your Visas Application

Not resolved

Go Matilda Visas and its managing director Alan Collett is a UNYTRUSTWORTH migration agent.

Alan Collett is an accountant of GM Tax and a migration agent of Go Maltilda Visas. He also claims to provide other services like financial planning, businesses for sale, shipping, jobs, telecoms and more.

He projects to be jack-of-all-trade but actually a master of none - HE IS JUST GREEDY!!!

Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas will appear to be an expert before he receives your money. But, once he collected your money, you will hardly hear from him. If you try to contact him, he will always give excuses that he is busy. Why then would he want to collect money from you if he cannot perform what he promised..???

BECAUSE HE IS SIMPLY UNSCRUPULOUS!!! He will do anything for money...!

Most of the positive comments in the forums are controlled by Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas. He engages internet specialists in writing positive comments in forums for a fee to populate the web and to be on the first page. And, to make himself and his company, Go Matilda Visas, to look like a genuine and professional company - IT IS ALL FAKE!!!

He projects to have a group of professionals working together with him but they are all associate networks working independently. The truth is that Alan Collett works alone in his home. All the other services are outsourced.

He boasts that he has offices in Australia, UK, Singapore, Spain and other different countries. They are only registered VIRTUAL OFFICES.

It is a shame that the Australia department of Migration and Border Protection has such a migration agent.

DO NOT Waste your Money and Time to engage Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas. YOU WILL REGRET! You won't miss out anything without engaging him for your visas application. In fact, in engaging Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas, you will end up having more problems.

Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas will offer free initial discussion and confirm his low fee for his services. Once he is engaged and money paid to him, you will end up paying much more, even double, because he will mess up your application. He does not provide proper professional advice.

Ultimately, you will end up going through the whole visas application all over with another migration agent. Bringing yourself a lot of headaches, heartache and frustrations.

You are better off applying it on your own and going through Australia Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection website at: http://www.immi.gov.au/.

Should you use GM Tax and other of his services? First ask yourself, is this man has trustworthy? My experience with him is NO!

The Decision is Yours!

Beware and Avoid Alan Collett and Go Matilda Visas

Registered Migration Agent Number 0102534

NOT TRUSTWORTHY & HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED!!!

Reason of review: Not as described.

Monetary Loss: $10.

Preferred solution: Deliver product or service ordered.

There is an unwarranted - and false - assertion in this discussion that we are not a real business, and that we are somehow shonky operators.

My "objective" is to give comfort to anyone who has participated in this thread that this is clearly not the case.

Putting aside issues of how we operate internally (these are issues that some of our competitors would be happy to exploit, I feel sure), I am happy to discuss concerns openly - whether that is in person, or on the phone, so long as I am comfortable that the person with whom I am talking is genuine.

You are not being coherent with your comments, which continue to be random in nature, and have no substance.

> When did I deny using virtual offices? Please be specific, as I am having some difficulty following your various observations.

> You are being critical of virtual offices - why?

We are perfectly able to look after our clients using this arrangement. As do many other businesses of size and reputation.

> You are welcome to come and visit me at our Melbourne office or our team in other offices.

In any event "Charles", what is your interest in this complaint?

Are you the same person who posted the original nonsense about us? Best regards.

Alan Collett,

I agreed with Charles Howard replied that: "you finally admitted that you are using virtual offices which you denied at first. Now you justify yourself that there is nothing wrong with using virtual office in the 21st century.

Why then gave excuses and defended yourself in the first place? Why didn't you come clean and admit that they are virtual offices. There are a lot more doubts about your integrity now".

You projected that you and your company, Go Matilda and GM Tax, are such an established and huge company. The truth finally revealed - you use virtual offices and are not what you earlier claimed "you occupy some of those offices and employed staff" - which is NOT TRUE!"

Hello again "Lyndon".

Your reply at the same time and with the same tone as that of "Charles Howard" indicates that you are one and the same person - so I also refer you to my comment in reply to him.

However, to save you time in locating that response:

> When did I deny using virtual offices?

> You are being critical of virtual offices - why?

We are perfectly able to look after our clients using this arrangement. As do many other businesses of size and reputation.

> You are welcome to come and visit me at our Melbourne office or our team in other offices. These "complaints" are nonsense.

They are nothing more than an unwarranted attack on a genuine and perfectly lawful - and proper - way to operate our businesses. Best regards.

Replying to Lyndon Courtney:

We are clearly not a "one man show", and while you may be disappointed and frustrated with this reply I am not about to discuss on a public website my business structure or modus operandi with someone who I have never met or spoken with.

Businesses large and small use virtual offices. They are an excellent means of developing a business in a market without committing to the financial obligations that come with a leased premises.

There are also no issues in our ability to look after our clients globally. In case you haven't noticed we have VOIP applications such as Skype for face to face conversations, as well as email, etc.

Methinks you need to enter the 21st century where business to client relationships operate in a different manner to the one you are suggesting should be used!

Hello Odetta.

Your comments, as well as the ones from "Brook Asher", "Lyndon Courtney", "Kathlyn", "Kelly Jewel", and "Charles Howard" are all time stamped within an hour of each other.

If I might speak plainly, this indicates that you are in fact the same person.

I am happy to continue rebutting these incorrect and false assertions about me and my businesses for so long as you continue posting here.

However, I suggest that your time - and that of the other persons who purport to have complaints against me - might be better spent making contact with regulators or professional bodies who are in place to protect consumers from those of questionable standards and businesses practices, rather than spending time posting manifestly incorrect and false comments on here.

Best regards.

Alan Collett,

Please continue with your wild guess. Have you not heard of news feeds?

You finally admitted that you want your aggrieved clients to make contact with regulators or professional bodies rather than spending time posting comments. That is exactly what you want your aggrieved clients to do. That is exactly what Odetta's arguments are all about - You have the upper hands to collect upfront fees periodically from your aggrieved clients. When things don't work out for your aggrieved clients, they have to rigourously go through the whole process to proof you wrong and claim back the money from you.

From you past experience, you know very well that your aggrieved clients would not want to go through such process because it is stressful, troublesome, time consuming, embarassing and inconvenient. Just like those victims who suffers in the hand of their rapists, pedophiles, abusers, criminals and aggressors yet remain silent. First you finally admitted to not occupying those offices and employed those staff as claimed. Now you finally admitted to your malpractice scheme.

I'm not in your system is because I have not contacted you. I was looking for a migration agent and came across your company, go matilda. I was about to contact you because there were a lot of good comments about you and your company, go matilda, in different forums. But I chance upon this site and decided to conduct my own query by asking you some simple questions about your definition of occupy offices and employed staff.

But I did not get a straight answer from you. Instead you diverted my questions and became sneaky and misleading. Finally you admitted to exactly what all those comments were saying about you. Knowing very well that it would be a long process for your aggrieved clients to claim from you although they have an avenue to do so.

Thank you but no thanks.

I have no intention to be your next aggrieved client. I urge others to be very aware and wary of any such migration agents.

> The tone of language adopted in all the responses contain are similar (compare your last posting with that of "Odetta")

> Not one person has bothered to contact me directly, in spite of my open invitations > No-one has given any specific details about their migration circumstances (eg visa type) I am obliged to draw the conclusion that this entire thread is a fabrication intended to do nothing other than attempt to undermine our good name and reputation based on false and misleading accusations. I wish you well with whatever migration journey you might find yourself upon. Best regards.

Making contact with regulators or professional bodies is what you hope you clients would do instead of releasing through comments in this forums.

You have already collected your clients money.

For your clients to claim back the money from you, your clients would have to go through all the hassle to make contact with regulators or professional bodies to claim against you.

It will probably take a long time going through the process to be able to claim anything. Your terms and conditions also cover you so well that going through the process would be so miserable for you clients..that's SUCKS!

Alan Collett - Go Matilda,

My comments made perfect sense.

It is true that you are at risk from a complaint by a aggrieved client if you failed to maintain professional standards and to act ethically.

On the same token, without receiving any complaint by aggrieved client does not necessarily mean that you have maintained professional standards and acted ethically.

Similarly, there are many rapists, abusers, criminals and pedophiles on the loose every day. They are not being reported does not mean that these rapists, abusers, criminals and pedophiles walking on the street are decent and innocent.

The victims may have not reported them because of fear, public scrutiny, embarassment, depression, condemnation, trouble of going through the process and for many other reasons. The rapists, abusers, criminals and pedophiles have just not been discovered....that's all. No complaints through professional bodies about you and your company, again, does not mean that you have maintained professional standards and acted ethically. It is the same argument given earlier.

Professional bodies which you are a member is only one of the avenues available for aggrieved clients to go to. But your aggrieved clients may not like to go through the trouble and the whole process. You could probably know that most aggrieved clients would not like to go through the whole process. Look at it at the same argument - Those victims who suffered so much under the hand of their aggressors, although they are given the avenues to report them and to help them, yet they just don't report them for whatever reason.

So you may have an upper hand to advise your clients and collect their money periodically but then you do not provide your clients with proper advise. Your clients won't know anyway, if you have advised them properly until it did not turn out as it should be or as advised. By then, if your clients want to seek redress, they have to go through your so called professional bodies which you are a member. But it may be too time consuming, troublesome, too far away in another country or for whatever reason, just did not want to file a complaint against you and go matilda.

And you are so proud to claim that "...there are no complaints with the professional bodies of which you I am a member.." - It just does not reflect the actual situation! I repeat, professional bodies is just one of the channels available for your aggrieved clients. To say that there is not no complaints about you is untrue and misleading. This forum is another form of channels available to aggrieved clients.

And, the fact is, there are complaints about you and your company , go matilda and your related companies. Maybe more complaints in other forums that are not controlled by you too! Don't live in denial.

Face the facts. The complaints are coming in but just not the channel you hope that they will go through!

Odetta

I'm sorry, but your comments are nonsense.

It is clearly very relevant that I am a professionally qualified person and am duly regulated, because if I fail to maintain professional standards and to act ethically I am at risk from a complaint by an aggrieved client.

I repeat, we have many happy clients, and there are no complaints with the professional bodies of which I am a member.

You are seeking to make mischief on a public forum, and I encourage you to please desist from doing so.

Alan Collett and Go Matilda. It is irrelevant if you are a qualified Chartered Accountant (registered in UK and in Australia) and a registered migration agent in Australia that have undergone a lot of study and maintain your competencies by attending Continuing Professional Education each year.

Without saying, it is also required, of lawyers, bankers, doctors, chiropractor, psychologists and many other professionals.

It doesn't mean a professional with more educations and trainings have a better heart or conscience than a less educated person. Many times, more educated people and professionals can be more heartless than less educated people.

Thus, education and professional do not determine what a person is. Despite all the trainings and educations that a professional received, the professional can still malpractice every day.

Utimately, it is the characters and ethics of the person that speak. No one knows the heart of an individual regardless if the person is a professional or not.

To bring in your trainings, hard works and continuing educations do not address the complaints. You are only trying to justify your professionalism by your qualifications.

But your qualifications do not justify your actions.

You are only boastful of what you have achieved and not what you have done to others. Gong forward, seeking counselling with a psychologist may help you to discover yourself better.

Alan_Collett
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia #890759

To the OP, and to others who have responded below: I am not sure what has caused such an outpouring of negative comments here.

To say I am a jack of all trades is offensive. I am a qualified Chartered Accountant (registered in the UK and in Australia) and am a registered migration agent in Australia.

I did not acquire these qualifications without undergoing a lot of study and doing the required examinations.

I am also required to maintain my competencies by attending Continuing Professional Education each year.

To answer the criticisms:

> Yes, we use serviced offices, and some of them are virtual offices. We also occupy some of those offices with employed staff. So far as I am aware anyone who calls one of our offices either has the call put through to one of the Go Matilda Visas team (if a visa matter) or a GM Tax person (if the call relats to a tax issue). When someone is not available their details are taken professionally, and are passed to the relevant person so the call can be returned.

> We employ staff, and we have consultants.

> I work from home and from our office in Melbourne. I also attend other offices for meetings. > I don't control any forums, save for the one on our Go Matilda website. If people make positive or negative comments about us on those forums that is their prerogative - and if someone makes a negative comment I like to think that in a spirit of openness and fairness I can respond.

> If we took money and didn't deliver a professional service we would be hauled up before the regulators which govern our services and/or the professional bodies of which I and my business partners are members. This doesn't happen, so please draw your own conclusions about the accuracy of some of the comments here. Finally, to anyone who claims to have had a bad experience: please make yourself known to me directly through one of our websites, and I will look into the matter.

We have built an excellent reputation over the last 13+ years, and the comments here are at odds with what our clients say about us. Best regards.

Hello again Lyndon. I'm not being given the option to reply to your post below - so I'm posting above it.

Please understand that we are a business, and I must respect the people who work for us.

As such I'm not at liberty to say who is employed and who we engage as self employed contractors - what would publishing each person's employment status say about us? You'll be wanting their salary details next!

I'm also not about to post on a public forum details of how we operate. For all I know you could be a competing business trying to extract information about us.

In any event, what is the issue with using virtual offices? Modern day businesses do this all the time.

Amongst other things it is a flexible way of working, allows people to work from home, and is employment friendly.

And I don't see what relevance this has to our ability to deliver our services to valued clients.

I acknowledge your right to have an opinion about using virtual offices, but I respectfully disagree about the inferences in your postings. The people in our team are detailed on our websites, and as I have said you are most welcome to telephone me at our Melbourne office, where I am today.

Finally, can I say that I do not see your name on our records, and we maintain details of all who contact us, whether by phone, email, or via our websites. What personal experience do you have of our business/es please? If you can let me know when you contacted us and your personal experiences I can look into the matter. Privacy constraints will prevent me discussing your personal issues on a public forum, but we can do so off forum.

Please make yourself known to me by email or on the phone.

I can then also have comfort that you are not someone who is trying to make mischief. Many thanks.

There are no issued with using virtual office. But you projected that you are such a big company with offices operating in different countries. The writer revealed that you are only a one-man show with registered virtual offices in different countries.

In your reply, you said that you "occupy some of those offices and employed staff". Now you give all kinds of excuses for not answering the questions and try to justify yourself. You are being deceiving and diverting the original questions again.

The Australia authority requires that migration agents inform their clients if they are receiving commissions and how much he is receiving if there is a referral service. The commissions must be printed in the agreement and be made known to the client.

There is definitely a conflict of interests in such cases!!!

Affected clients should seek redress with the relevant Australia authority.

Such migration company and agent like Go Matilda and Alan Collett must be checked by the authority.

Go Matilda and GM Tax's books, accounts and practises must thoroughly be investigated...!

What a shame it brings to Australia, the Department of Migration and Australians.....! Such practise...such disgrace...!

Hello Kathlyn.

I'm not sure whether you know, but each registered migration agent is required to submit to a renewal of his or her registered status each year.

The regulator asks us to submit details of our business as part of that re-registration process.

The terms and conditions of our appointment - which we are required to send to each client - also deal with the issue of any referral commissions which might become payable to us.

As a professionally qualified person I can also assure you that I am aware of the need to give independent advice that is not tainted by a conflict of interest.

Hope this gives you comfort. Best regards.

Hi Alan Collett,

Why am I posting here? To expose your cover up.

You used the word "factually incorrect". But you finally admitted that you are using virtual offices which you denied at first. Now you justify yourself that there is nothing wrong with using virtual office in the modern world. Why then gave excuses and defended yourself in the first place?

Why didn't you come clean and admit that they are virtual offices. What other points raised by the writer that are actually FACTUALLY CORRECT that you are still insisting that they are factually incorrect? There are a lot more doubts about your integrity now. I have no concerns to discuss with you directly is different from I have no concerns of your cover up.

I was not a victim and see no point to contact you to discuss with you over the phone. But I have concerns of such cover up by you and your company to lure public into believing that you or your Go Matilda are such established and huge company. Besides what is there to discuss about over the phone that it cannot be discussed over here.

It finally still gets to the bottom of the truth. You use virtual offices and are not what you earlier claimed "you occupy some of those offices and employed staff" - which is NOT TRUE!

I've heard plenty of good things about them, but I had a bad experience with them.

I initially contacted Go Matilda (Australian Visas) Ltd and Alan Collett to get them to submit my visa application and they advised me that I wasn't eligible for a 176 PR and to apply for a temp visa (can't remember the number).

Even trying to prove I was eligible they said I wasn't.

So in the end I applied for the PR visa myself (and got it) and saved a shed load of cash in 2010.

So their incompetence was a good thing for me in the end.

I shared my bad experience about and Alan Collett in Poms in Adelaide - Australia Migration Forum in 2010. But they covered it with positive reviews to drown my comment.

Now I know and believe the positive reviews about Go Matilda are mostly cooked up... It is a good thing that someone finally speaks up and let the world know.

Could tell me which part of the original review article is factually incorrect?

After reading the review article on Go Matilda and Alan Collett, I google Go Matilda and Alan Collett.

In Go Matilda's website, it does state that:

"Our services and contacts go beyond what other firms of advisors provide –

and include visas, tax and financial planning, businesses for sale, shipping,

jobs, telecoms, and more.." In manta.com, it further states that Go Matilda (Australia) Pty Limited usually offer: "Professional Paralegal Services, Paralegal Agencies, Contract Paralegal Services, Fire Legal Liability Insurance, Legal Expenses Insurance." Given what is printed on Go Matilda's own website and manta.com, paragraph 2 of the review article is FACTUALLY CORRECT.

It does show that Go Matilda or Alan Collett do claim to provide all kind of services - It is FACTUALLY CORRECT that his clients might experience poor services as a result of his "jack-of-all-trades" Further searches reveal that there are forums like GoMatildaforums.com, migrationagentreviews.com, britishexpats.com, etc. They are all populated with not much general discussions but only Go Matilda's positive reviews. They are too unnatural. It is FACTUALLY CORRECT to say that those forums are controlled and fake.

Go Matilda has offices addresses registered in UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, etc. Could you say confidently that they are not FACTUALLY CORRECT that those registered office addresses are mostly VIRTUAL offices?
