$250K Forfeiture, Guilty Plea in Texas E-1 / E-2 Visa Fraud Case


"A Laredo woman plans to plead guilty to conspiracy to use fraud to help Mexican entrepreneurs get visas that let them live in the United States.  Among the tactics used by Emilia Diaz, 41, was taking pictures of the inside of an H-E-B and passing them off as being from inside a tiny meat market business of one of her clients.  Diaz runs E.G. Services, which provides visa and tax services, and she signed a plea deal that says she provided fraudulent paperwork to the State Department in an effort to get up to 24 “E” series visas for clients between 2007 and August 2011." - San Antonio Express-News, May 8, 2012.
