U.S. uncovers $20M H-1B fraud scheme

For more details, please visit http://www.computerworld.com/article/3064712/h1b/us-uncovers-20m-h-1b-fraud-scheme.html

The U.S. government has indicted a Virginia couple for running an H-1B visa-for-sale scheme the government said generated about $20 million.

Workers were required to pay their own visa processing fees and were treated as hourly contractors, the DOJ alleged. Treating H-1B workers as hourly contractors is in violation of the program rules, the government said.

A U.S. District Court judge in Dallas is scheduled to consider sentencing, as early as this week, for brothers Atul Nanda and Jiten “Jay” Nanda, for visa fraud following a jury verdict last November. They face up to 20 years in prison for using the visa program to create an on-demand workforce, the government alleged.

  1. Hello, all Indian owned IT companies do the exact same thing. 100″s of them exist. Also, they use fake experience when marketing candidates. If US government enquires, it will be one of the biggest scandals on earth. The companies charge 30% commission from candidates salary and make huge profits. I think US government should take immediate action to stop this abuse costing many genuine American workers.
