An Inglewood man, the man’s wife and his brother face charges of fraud following their arrests last month. According to investigators, the men targeted people looking to obtain permanent legal resident status in the United States.
Investigators say that the men operated a consulting firm which dispensed legal advice. Neither man holds a California law license. In addition, one man’s wife faces charges of tax evasion and conspiracy. According to prosecutors, the men charged clients thousands of dollars for fraudulent legal assistance.
The trio will face nearly two dozen grand theft charges, in addition to conspiracy to violate Immigration Consultants Act. They will return to court in Los Angeles County later this month for matters related to the case.
