Samuel Chai Cho Oh Gets Prison Time For Selling Diplomas at Fake University
A fake graduation ceremony at the fake school, California Union University.
Young people from all over the world, but primarily South Korea, paid anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 for a college diploma and $3,000 to $5,000 for fraudulent visa documents, the Orange County Register reports. As part of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, one student said she never took classes and that Oh told her to study at home or online. Another witness, who received a bachelor's degree in education from CUU, said Oh staged a graduation ceremony where students wore caps and gowns and received phony diplomas.
