More Than 1,000 Student Visa Scammers Caught In New Jersey Sting Operation
New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said on Tuesday U.S. authorities set up a phony university with a website and an office–and they did it to nab more than 1,000 people they accused of conspiring to fraudulently obtain student and work visas. Federal prosecutors charged 21 brokers with felony charges of conspiracy to commit visa fraud, making a false statement, and conspiracy to harbor aliens for profit and other offenses. Prosecutors said the brokers are accused of marketing their services to more than 1,000 foreign nationals primarily from China and India who entered the United States on legitimate student visas. Prosecutors said the students wanted to remain after completing their studies.
