Scammers Got More Than 1,000 Visas in Fake School Sting

23 April 2016 No Comment


Twenty-one people who allegedly helped more than 1,000 foreign nationals fraudulently obtain student visas were arrested by federal agents in a nationwide sweep.

The arrests represent the conclusion of a three-year investigation into the exploitation-for-profit of non-immigrant student visas. Arrests were made in New York, Washington, New Jersey and Virginia by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations.

To help catch the alleged criminals, HSI federal agents set up a fake university, called the University of Northern New Jersey, that provided work authorization for hundreds of “students.”
