Metro Detroit residents accused in nationwide scam

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Eleven Metro-Detroit residents are accused of scamming the federal government out of more than one-million dollars in student loans.

The U.S. Attorney's Office has filed criminal charges alleging that the group lied about having high school diplomas and about taking online college courses when they applied for financial aid.  One person charged is accused of recruiting dozens of people to fraudulently apply for financial aid.

Four separate crime rings are named in the charges, alleging criminal activity from 2006 through 2010.
