New Jersey University Was Fake, but Visa Fraud Arrests Are Real

Instead, the university was a fake, set up by the Homeland Security Department as part of a sting operation to ensnare criminals involved in student visa fraud.

The people arrested were brokers who recruited foreign students who were mainly from China and India to an institution that they knew would not have real classes.

He paid the university $6,000 to obtain 20 visas for skilled workers, known as H-1B visas, the complaint said. (The government never issued them.) He paid another $17,750 to the school for arranging the extension of student visas.

  1. Where does one go outside their existing company to report such things if they feel like they see it? For example, a recent re-org at my current company matches the scenario described in this post and others on your site. At the risk of sounding overly paranoid the leadership team here all came from india consulting companies and fear retribution for even questioning such things…

      • Ram, the call or raid by USCIS team should be more than enough for this company that’s threatening you. Please do not waste any time and file a written complaint mentioning facts in detail and then also, try to call them directly, there is a dial in option to directly talk an officer and you can explain and register the complaint.
        Please do so without bothering much about these threatens. In fact he will get a legal notice and not you, but you have to file at the earliest to bring to their notice what you are facing and then convincing is easier.

        Thanks,
        Madhav
