You couldn't possibly have known this (or at least I assume not) but today I have heard of a second Adelaide family who have unwittingly become victims of VC. It is a heartbreaking story - as so many of them are - and I am told that it cannot necessarily be solved.
Needless to say the victims, two generations of the same family, are seriously out of pocket and there is no longer any certainty that their dreams of migrating to Adelaide can be salvaged.
You know better than most what it feels like when that thought hits you. To my dying day I will never forget the sound of your voice on the phone at 8am on the day when you learned how appallingly VC had let you down.
I am told that trying to salvage the new family's original plans is not guaranteed to succeed so I don't know what the eventual outcome will be.
But unless you are in touch with the family concerned I think you must have had a sixth sense a few hours ago.
Thank you very much indeed for your effort to ensure that we do all we can to see to it that if anyone who is caught up with the VC fiasco wants help or just wants a smpathetic ear, people who understand exactly how their situation feels are on hand, led by you.
Thanks to the Mods for making the thread sticky just when an Adelaide based family might need the contacts from it.

I think we should unstick this thread now. Tim has deleted the big VC thread from Poms in Oz and I don't think anything new will emerge now.
I think it is time to let this thread go as well.
