Forget singles… These dancers wanted TUITION money!
Florida College Exposed For Using Strippers As Admissions Officers
This sounds insane.
According to NY Post reports:
Prosecutors say a for-profit Florida college used exotic dancers as admissions officers, falsified documents and coached students to lie on financial forms as it fraudulently obtained millions of dollars in federal money.
The Florida attorney general and the US Attorney’s Office in Miami announced Wednesday that they were joining an ongoing civil lawsuit against FastTrain College and former owner Alejandro Amor, 56.
FastTrain is now defunct. It operated seven Florida campuses and was based in Miami.
The complaint says that from at least January 2009 through June 2012, FastTrain and Amor bilked the US Department of Education out of millions of dollars with falsified grant applications.
The complaint says strippers on at least one campus tried to attract young male students.
Amor was charged criminally in October. A telephone message left at a listing for Amor wasn’t immediately returned.
We hope Amor is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Preying on kids just trying to get an education is wrong as hell.
