USCIS Assists in NY Case Leading to Indictment of ESL Teacher for Stealing Thousands From Student Visa Holders
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate in the New York Office played a key role in the indictment of Jenetta Ferguson, 58, an English as a second language (“ESL”) teacher. Ferguson was indicted for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from student visa holders from Europe and Asia by misleading victims and falsely promising to provide them with Green Cards in exchange for cash payments. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced the indictment on April 6, 2015.
