Nigerian man is currently in trouble in the US for allegedly luring foreigners to America to work for a nonexistent university before setting them up with menial jobs and stealing almost half of their salaries.
According to ABC News, Kizzy Kalu, is facing charges of visa fraud, forced labor, money laundering, human trafficking, criminal forfeiture and mail fraud in what the government described as an ‘elaborate scheme’.
Kalu, 47, is accused of enticing foreign nurses to work as teachers at ‘Adam University‘ in Denver, which his alleged accomplice, Philip Langerman, 77, had made up, according to the police.
Langerman of Georgia, who was also indicted despite still being at large, is accused of representing that the ‘university’ needed nursing instructors, allowing foreign nationals to get work visas.
Kalu, made a salary of between $68,000 and $72,000 annually from the scam by asking his “clients” to pay fees to into his company’s, Foreign Healthcare Professional Group (FHPG), account in exchange for assistance in obtaining the visas.
Once they were in the United States, Kalu said that the positions were no longer available, and had them work for him at long-term care facilities that contracted with his company for employees and only pay 65 percent of the wages to his employees pocketing the rest.
