Sadly this is not the only case. I worked for a couple of Indians who were charging up to 9k for a course and they managed to get around 500 students from the Punjab over here on visas. The students gained nothing and were fleeced all the way to their bank accounts.

UKBA caught them red handed and closed them down. Do they care? no way. They're probably plotting another scam as I type.

I know a guy who fleeced the government in a similiar manner. He set up a company to teach incoming refugees to the UK, persuaded the goverment to fund it with millions and employed teachers on a salary of 20k a year, while paying himself six figures and barely doing a stroke of work.

After a few years the money was stopped but he had scammed enough to set up a restaurant and buy a couple of houses.

He probably got an MBE into the bargain. His "entrepreneurial behaviour" is just the thing in favour with the deranged ideologues now running UKANIA

He missed out on the honours mainly because the Inland Revenue were after him. He got out of that by setting up a bogus business in the Czech Republic and paying off a local there to forge documents, expenses, etc.
