Go Matilda SCAMMED ME

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.

AVOID Go Matilda and his related companies at all costs, once they have your money they will not speak to you, they simply send emails.

SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS !SCAMMERS!

You're disgusting....Alan Collett! How could you still be in business with so many victims?

You mean until now no one investigates you just because no one complaint about you? What a shame to Australia!

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.

Best regards.

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!

No, we have better things to do with our time than to create new threads on this website.

Maybe pick up the phone and ask her for yourself?

#1023749

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!

#1014054

Same old answers, "I have no idea who you are..." and "You have not contacted me..."

Denying and pretending...even been contacted and know who the client is.

Only one word to describe you...rubbish migration agent....!!!

#962174

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!

Best regards.

Go Matilda - I had Bad Experience With them.

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.

"I see a common way in how Alan Collett of Go Matilda answer and reply."

"I see that as a way to divert the audience from the original topics."

Do you, Min?

That is because I suspect I am replying to the same person posting under different names, because the style of writing is identical across all the postings, with the same grammatical idiosyncrasies.

I wonder therefore who is the person adopting "a form of manipulation and distraction" ...

Best regards.

Hmmm...there you go again! I now can feel what your clients are going through.

I could imagine if I appoint you as my migration agent and have to go through all these arguments with Alan Collett and Go Matilda if my visas don't work out. I would seriously reconsider before even starting.

Do you always live in suspicious? This is a public forum, what do you expect....duh?

#894184
@PissedConsumer894180

Hello again Min.

I sense that English is perhaps not your first language? I am not seeking to argue with you. I am though rebutting the various incorrect and malicious assertions on this site, to which you are apparently giving credence.

We have many very happy clients, and I am happy to provide contact details if you wish to talk with one or two of them.

There are also many positive comments about us on the various forums on the internet - over which I have no control, ownership, or moderating influences (as already noted).

Best regards.

DON'T Engage Go Matilda Visas For Your Visas Application

DON'T Engage Go Matilda Visas For Your Visas Application
DON'T Engage Go Matilda Visas For Your Visas Application
DON'T Engage Go Matilda Visas For Your Visas Application
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!!!

This guy....Allan Collett of Go Matilda? He is a *** migration agent!

He collects money and doesn't do his job properly.

He then constantly challenges his clients to report him to the Migration Registration Authority of Australia (MRA). He take advantages of his clients and use the loophole of the MRA to get away....never use him!

#1091908
@PissedConsumer1087689

What a load of nonsense. If there were genuine complaints about my competencies there would be evidence of this on the MARA website, and I would have been struck off long ago.

Note: the regulator is the MARA, not the MRA.
