    It's a long standing joke...

    Just like the Highly Trusted Colleges that are equally dodgy and don't last five minutes...

    I'm going for a plan d. Especially as it seems that if I don't pay them they not reach that magic salary of £20,000

    Just need to work out how to set the chain between end client co and the sponsoring agency so that the money is suitably lost.
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    Can anybody throw a light on this? Anybody aware?

    I refer you to the posts at the beginning of the thread that warn you what happens if you go down that route.

    Get yourself a permanent employer who will sponsor you.

    You may not like the UK anyway.

    I've worked with various people from around the world who find they disliked being in the UK or stuck in the part they worked.

    At one client I worked with, one morning they opened up the delivery lorry at the warehouse and two illegals jumped out and ran off.

    Two days later, they handed themselves into the police, having found that waking up in a trading estate just outside Accrington wasn't quite the "roads are paved with gold" that they were expecting...

    Not sure what their status has to do with anything? They were human beings who were obviously so desperate to escape the situation in wherever their homeland was that they were prepared to suffer the hardships and risks of illegal passage to the UK.

    After a time they discovered it was not for them and that can happen to anyone.

    I wish you luck in your quest but I have to say that you seem to be clutching at straws in the hope that a magic contract will appear and all your dreams will come true when the one piece of consistent advice you have been given is to get a permanent role with an employer who will sponsor you.
