HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for running a fraud scheme targeting Vietnamese people who sought assistance bringing relatives to America.
Federal authorities say 42-year-old Hai Van Nguyen of Lynnwood, Washington, falsely claimed that his company could obtain legal entry into the U.S. for clients’ relatives. He defrauded clients of roughly $550,000.
