WASHINGTON: Four Indian-Americans have been indicted for hatching a plot to commit H-1B visa fraud, use of false documents and mail fraud among other offences, the US federal prosecutors said in an official statement.
The couple Sunitha Guntipally and Venkat Guntipally, Pratap “Bob” Kondamoori and Sandhya Ramireddi, allegedly used three California corporations to orchestrate the improper submission of more than 100 H-1B specialty-occupation work visa applications, said the statement from the US Attorney’s Office Northern District of California.

What is new here? That is pretty much the modus operandi of any Indian company sending employees on H-1b. They neither have a specified job when the prospective employees join nor do they pay them unless they are placed.
Shame on all the Indians involved in this scam. Even students who come on masters put on a minimum of 8 years of experience on their fake resume and join the workforce. Genuine applicants are getting effected because they are not getting a job as those are stolen from the immigrant works / students on visas.
The H-1b’s are abusing the system in innovative ways – fake interview calls, proxy calls, misrepresentation, false claims, using hi-tech software to manipulate their voice, living in overcrowded apartments, poor communication and social skills, inability to adapt to American culture and lifestyle, bad morals and ethics.
These H-1b’s are stooping so low with their desperation to get jobs that it has now become lucrative to work in India than in USA.
I really feel sorry for the Americans as the cheap labor is replacing genuine, talented and hard-working folks all in the name of “specialized skills”.
Equally pathetic are the corporations of US who are sacrificing local talent but don’t mind paying the same to offshoring companies with migrant workers.
What baffles me is all these so called IT jobs can be done pretty much be done by a high-school student with good analytical and reasoning skills. You don’t really need bachelors or masters to do such jobs. Not sure why these H-1b’s are categorized as skilled when they are really just basic technical programming skills.
Hope somebody takes note of it and does something in US before all unemployed folks take to the streets.

I have lodged a complaint with uscis and Department of Labor in USA so that in future companies like EBSMINDS (http://www.ebsminds.com/ & Ebs-minds It Inc) and iERATECH does not flourish in USA . The culprits are Man Mohan Akavaram, Brijesh Vyas and Raghu MUTUKULA. All these 3 people are responsible for taking the money from me (USD 4000) for processing the H1B Visa. After they took the mopney , they have not moved my Visa further and refused to send me for H1B Visa stamping even thought the visa was picked in lottery and Approved. I hope they are investigated by USCIS and DOL and procescuted. I am ready to be a whisteblower and provide evidence in any court of law. Please contact me in India at +91 709319 8849
EBSMinds also goes by the name of ebs-minds IT inc, so beware of this fraud company
Thanks for putting together this site. Headed to report a scam from Entellects (http://www.entellects.com/). All of their hiring is H1B or South Asian origin. They break the law by not paying their employees, their H1B’s on bench do not get paid . Employees play along and stay quiet with the fear of losing their visa status. The use of fake resumes is common. When I went to the USCIS web page the link is broken. What is the best place to try this again? The CEO is Murali Marega . Look at the glassdoor reviews as well.
