Hi, I am in the craziest situation and I would appreciate any legal help. I was born in the UK, but I am an Australian citizen. I have been with my accountant for nearly two years now and in March 2015, he offered to help me with my mother in law's permanent immigration visa from the UK to Australia. I was grateful for the help and have transferred nearly $30,000 from my account through online banking to his trust account. He advised $4,800 was for the visa lodgement fee and the remaining $24,000 was a refundable bond that would get refunded if the visa was not successful. Since then, he has failed to give me any visa reference and has gone so far as to warn me from contacting immigration as I would run the risk of ruining the visa. I have emailed, text and called repeatedly and even have a voice recording of him on the telephone confirming the above, but still I am no further in knowing what is going on. I tried to do a charge back through the bank but was unsuccessful and now he is ignoring all my calls! Where do I go from here?
