Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
I think this is a serious wake up call for foreign students wishing to get an education and come to the USA. One thing students interested in obtaining an education in the US can do to protect themselves is to check the college board of accredited for postsecondary schools, here’s the link: http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/. If the college/university is not listed there, what good is your degree if the school you obtained it from is not accredited.
The bad girl, CrimeDiva today is Susan Su, 43, of San Francisco area. Ms. Sue was convicted on 31 counts of running a fake university, which included wire fraud, mail fraud, visa (not the credit card) fraud and money laundering.
According to records, Ms. Su engaged in a two-year scheme to defraud the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by submitting fraudulent documents in support of TVU’s petition for approval to admit foreign students and, after having obtained such approval, fraudulently issued visa-related documents to student aliens in exchange for “tuition and fees”.
The records indicate that Ms. Su netted $5.9 million while operating the phony Tri-Valley University in Pleasanton, which she billed as a “Christian higher education institution.” It states that Ms. Su used the proceeds to purchase commercial real estate, a Mercedes-Benz, and multiple residences, including a mansion on the Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton, California.
The school was made up of 90% India students.
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
