Those were some of the proceeds, federal authorities contended today, of a massive immigration-fraud scheme carried out by David Lynn, 33, a businessman who allegedly made $3 million from the scam with help from five other Russian-born co-defendants.

The indictment said that Lynn, who was born in Russia and lived in Israel before coming to the United States, operated a phony asylum business called Lynn International, which he claimed was a translation service.

Lynn pretended to be a lawyer who specialized in immigration cases, the indictment stated, and operated from offices in Northeast Philadelphia and Southampton in Bucks County.

  1. People who are illegal aliens have shown themselves to be comfortable with skirting and bending the law, with gaming the system, with sucking off the hind teat. Is it surprising that with this mind-set they are quick to pursue shady deals such as this “asylum business?” Are they victims, or just continuing a lifestyle that has rewarded them in the past?
