Could you explain your situation a bit more? You seem to indicate that Optima got you a visa but didn't find you a job. You have to have an employer do the paperwork in order to even apply for the visa, so did you do all the work with the employer yourself?
If Optima didn't serve as a broker for you to get the job, how are they removing money from your paycheck? What percentage did you agree to being removed? What is actually being removed? Is your employer on this list of supposed Optima clients? http://optimaresources.com/clients.htm
Have you spoken with your employer about this issue?
Do you have anything in writing from Optima as to what they were supposed to provide you? Also, did you read the other threads in this forum? http://www.fraudwatchers.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=141

I have the following to narrate as per my experience with Optima Resources / Reliable Associates : I am resident of Somerset, NJ. I had applied for my friend a resident of Singapore for H 1 visa through Optima Resources (Reliable Associates) a company in Edison, NJ. In order to employ him, they were supposed to file for H1 in this year 2006. Since I am already in US, I paid the fees of $2200 upfront when sending the papers to the company (check already encashed) and $800 (after a week.Check encashed as well). As per the company, once my friend's case was EAC no. (Case no.) we were supposed to pay another $1400 as Securitydeposit (not paid). I have photo copies of the checks and also the bank statements where it shows they were encashed. Since in the year in May 2006, the quota for H1 visas got over earlier, my friend's file came back without any EAC no. As we had earlier discussed with this company if there was a rejection, we were supposed to get a full refund of $3000(excluding administrative expenses, courier charges etc). After contactingthe company they said that we will keep the $2200 and refund the $800. This $2200 will be used in the next year's filing whenever the quota opens in April 2007. Case : Now, our concern is that it was implied that the company OptimaResources was supposed to file for H1 for only the year 2006. There wasno verbal / written communication from either side nor any approval from our side saying that if the papers get rejected / not approved by USCIS,the case will be carried over to the next year or Optima Resources will keepthe $2200. This even doesn't exist in any forms filled out during the application. It was neither verbal nor written. My friend didn't want to go ahead with the filing for 2007. So I asked for the refund. They said that they have already spent a lot of money on Attorney fees, courier,administration etc.. They also added that we are not the only ones whose money is with them.They have more 30 odd candidates (whose H1 got rejected / not approved due to over filling of the quota) whose money is with them. Upon demanding the refund of the money, Optima Resources said that we can pay you $800 only as the rest ($2200) have already been spent on Attorneyfees, Administrative expenses etc. They said that the same $2200 will be used next time when we file for my friend (April 2007). On occassions the company said that the money is safe with them. I reverted saying that Attorney hasn't even filed a case. It has been rejected by USCIS. So the Attorney come into the picture for his full fees? Now, I have already received the $800. My question is : whether a case can be filed against this company for a fraud? if it is filed, what are the chances of getting back the money fromthem? Also, on lot of website forums, I have read quite a lot of comments aboutthis company defrauding other candidates. Your suggestions / remarks in this regard will be highly appreciated andwill help us go against this defrauding firm. Pls contact me in case you are one the persons that could join me in fighting this case. Thanks

Only a lawyer can actually answer that question as it would be based on whatever testimony and physical evidence you can provide.
Personally I'd love to see the executives of this fraudulent company brought to justice and placed in a US jail for a great many years.

Hi My Name is Amit Mistry ,I was leaving Edison,NJ ,Came through this company(Optima resources and given me the petion of Excelsior business solution and client letter of Accuram technology for cap 2008 taken $4400 in year march 2007 ) on february 2008,They didnot give me any accomodation or food ,I was working on gas station initial 3 months ,then one day he called me I guess they will give me some expense but they put the request of filling tax for first quarter.I was shock becoz i don't have money at that time.
he forced me to fill the tax.But i didn't do that and I had leave that odd job and start marketing my resume with other company,later on 2 months I found job my on way and I went for client location,but after a month finished they(Optimaresource) didnot send me the regular salary and they send me the salary after 65 days.The rate was 45$ dollar he told me on the phone that we will paid you on 80%-20% base.
So actually I must got 80% of 45$/hour is 36$/hour But he paid me 25$/hour for 2 projects.
they even told me we will deposit($4400)your money gradually for every month on 18 months of contract base e.g (4400$/18)=245.oo$ every month(They didn't paid me yet)
Now After finished my 2 projects(3+3)months they paid me 25$/hour only.
And yet not return my deposit. As finally I have transfer my h1 in other company.
I have copy of demand draft of $4400 which I had paid them .
So Beware of this company.

If your condition is so bad because of them, why don't you report to BBB and along with some other agency like FBI or whoever handles such cases in US. I am sure you will get help.
