Is it possible that Fragomen didn't actually submit my h1 visa application?

First off, Fragomen is shit. I can't imagine any reason why Amazon would work with this hot pile of absolute garbage company.

So, my h1b visa application wasn't ready till the very last day of filing. Application status on their website showed "Awaiting docs/info" when in fact they never reached out to me asking for anything. They never replied to my repeated mails when I was panicking. And, on Apr 2 they replied that they have sent the application. And conveniently, the case progress tracker on their website jumped from 2nd stage straight to the "awaiting response" (second last stage).

Now, I wasn't asked to fill out any documents (I switched role leading to >50% change in responsibilities) for my role. They refused to give me any confirmation number or any LCA/receipt by which I can verify that they submitted my case on time. I can't help but get rid of this feeling that they haven't sent my case and I just got cheated by some automated status change script on their website. Do you think there is any reason for applicants like me to doubt Fragomen?

    I felt the same way last year. Couldn't shake off the feeling they never sent it in. I requested for a new respresntation this year and the process was so much smoother and they and I were in constant communication.

      I think I'll do the same. I haven't received the receipt info this year. So, I guess I wasn't picked :'( . Could you please tell me how you requested this change?

      So a while ago there was a way to do so. An email dl for Amazon immigration . That doesn't exist anymore. File a TT under immigration / work visa and talk about what problems you faced. I will be honest I didn't think it would work but it did. So I hope it does for you too. I got my receipt this year.

    Lol they usually have all the info they need. So don't worry. They can't say one thing and do the other. They'll get sued

      Well in this case, they totally can. They can just tell OP the petition wasn’t selected.

      Skeptic me thinks this might the reason why they haven't given me a confirmation number.

    I agree. Having a similar experience with them, they have been daying they will file soon, but keeps on delaying, now not even responding

    Lol, they are playing a game with you. They are probably filing everything last minute by design.

    You are being paranoid. Blame USCIS and US government, if you have to.
