We analyze the effects of a doubly charged vector bilepton as well as exotic quarks with charge 5/3e and on light-by-light scattering. We consider mass values in the range 0.3-1 TeV, which will be reached at the planned future linear colliders. It is found that such exotic particles, especially the doubly charged vector bilepton, give raise to remarkable deviations from the standard model cross-section. The virtual effects arising from these particles would provide an indirect test to a particular model which is based on the gauge symmetry, known as 3-3-1 model, where such particles are a natural prediction.
