When people are forced into the shadows it is easier for them to be taken advantage of. This is such a case.

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.
