Two illegal immigrants from India earned millions of pounds from a visa fraud “factory” that helped an estimated 4,000 bogus students to cheat Britain’s “shambolic” border controls.
The married couple, Jatinder Kumar Sharma and Rakhi Shahi, aided by a network of sham colleges, sold fake academic certificates to clients, who paid up to £4,000 each for a false educational history that would gain them the right to live in Britain. Their success, a Crown Court jury heard, was a damning indictment of the Home Office.
Those involved were so confident of fooling immigration officials that they offered a money-back guarantee to any customer denied a visa.
Police and UK Border Agency (UKBA) officials found 90,000 documents during a raid on two warehouses and the premises of a company called Univisas, in Southall, West London, in February last year. The operation led to the agency’s biggest investigation into organised immigration fraud and the discovery of an international criminal network stretching to the Indian sub-continent.
