Fil-Brit Businesswoman Arrested In Visa Scam Investigation

21 Jan 2013

Scores of Pinoys duped in entrepreneur visa fraud

Home Office's crack team of organized immigration crime investigators move in

UPDATE: Many comments on this story, have your say, see below 

Members of a joint UK Borders Agency (UKBA) and police task force made two arrests in Manchester Monday as part of a major investigation into a suspected visa scam.

Flerida Frost, 49, of Morland Road, Manchester who also goes by the name of Fatima Dudha and a 39 year old Bangladeshi man of Shillingford Road, Manchester were taken into custody.

Frost, originally from Nueva Ecija, was arrested on suspicion of assisting unlawful immigration and fraud by false representation while the man was arrested on suspicion of assisting unlawful immigration.

The arrests were by the UK Border Agency’s Criminal and Financial Investigation team. The UKBA’s Criminal and Financial Investigation team is a specialist unit of police officers seconded from the Metropolitan Police working alongside warranted UKBA officers to investigate organised immigration crime.

Frost and the other man were released on bail until April 22 while enquiries continue. 

A complicated web of deceit has alleged to have been utilized to cheat scores of Filipinos, as well as an unknown number of people of other nationalities, out of thousands of pounds.

The fraud has come about because of changes to British laws regarding foreign student visa holders, specifically those from outside the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA), and has enabled the fraudsters to dupe the naive and desperate into believing they were eligible for either highly skilled or Entrepreneur visas.

Balita Pinoy's Scam Check Service

For this "service" they were charged between £4,000 and £8,000.

Flerida Navarro Frost, also known as Fatima Dudha (above left) controls two businesses, one is known as the Filipino Cultural Forum (above right) located at 32-34 Lord Street, Manchester M3 1HF with the other being Angel Touch Care based in north London.

The offices of Angel Touch Care are located in Central House, an imposing building opposite Finchley Central underground station.

The investigation and arrests had come about because of complaints by victims to lawyers, immigration advisors and others. The UKBA and police were also alerted because of specific complaints from at least two law firms that discovered their websites or their company names had been copied.

The fake law firms offering "immigration" services had been getting visa applicants and charging them high fees and not providing the services.

In one case, a firm of lawyers with two offices, one in Manchester and one in Oldham, had been contacted by a relative of a man in immigration detention as well as by a charity representing a woman in a similar position. In both cases £4,000 had either been paid or was being demanded to enable release by the fake "Lloyds" of the people from detention by the UKBA. When the real Lloyds Law were contacted, at first they were bemused but then quickly realized a scam was in progress.

In the other case, a law firm with three offices in Yorkshire were being contacted by potential clients of another fake law firm, "Simmonds & Parker". In this case the website of the real law firm had been copied even down to the phone numbers of the Yorkshire based law firm being left  in place.

When this company realized what was happening because of calls from visa applicants, they, like Lloyds Law of Manchester quickly contacted the police, Home Office/UKBA, their professional body the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. the Law Society of England & Wales as well as the Scottish Law Society.

Angela Stull, head of immigration at Lloyds Law, told Balita Pinoy that the two main things in this case were that the amount charged was excessive, and that in the case of the enrepreneur visas, it should always be the applicant who arranges the funding, not the lawyer/advisor because of the obvious conflict of interest.

For submitting a visa application an immgration lawyer or advisor should charge around £1,000. Stull added that this would be a reasonable charge for processing and should only go up if there are appeals to tribunals or higher courts. Reasearch by Balita Pinoy has borne this out.

A meeting of 15 Filipino victims of the alleged visa fraud at a secret location in east London last Friday. They had all paid thousands of pounds for visas they never received 

This was in addition to Filipinos who had been complaining of paying money for visas and not getting them.  

The Google street views above are of three addresses which are Mail Box offices. The fake Lloyds Immigration, Simmonds & Parker "solicitors" and Simon & Co "solicitors" all gave as their office addresses the Mail Box offices. 

The top photo is of a Mail Boxes mail-drop office in Central London (Great Russell Street), the grand headquarters of Lloyds Immigration solicitors (see screen shot of website below) with another office in, surprise surprise, Manchester. The contact phone number in London however is of an 0208 number which is for Outer London, and does not even work. This same phone number appears on the letter heads and forms Lloyd Advisors have given to Filipino victims. The address given for Lloyds Immigration in Manchester (792 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury) is also that of a branch of Mail Boxes. Both offices have confirmed no company named as Lloyds rents a box there.

The center photo is of the Mail Boxes HQ of Simmonds & Parker (Solicitors) LLP. The address given (12 South Bridge, Edinburgh) is just the basic address, with no "box" or "unit" number. Staff at this branch of Mail Boxes have stated that they are not aware of any company known as Simmonds & Parker renting a box there.

The bottom photo is of the HQ of yet another interlinked "legal firm", that of Simon & Co Solicitors. This address is given as Unit 7 (Box 7 in reality), 275 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4EW. Staff at this branch of Mail Boxes have confirmed the use of this box by the named company, and that it is still renting this box. 

There is a letter which pupports to have been sent from the UK Borders Agency (UKBA) addressed to Simon & Co at that address in reference to an application for an Entrepreneurs visa which is published below.

Both legitimate law firms took action, reporting these websites to the lawyers regulatory authority, the police and the UK Borders Agency with the result the sites were disabled and taken down. 

These two websites (which are now down) have the domains lloydimmigration.com and simmondsparker.com .

Filipino victims have told Balita Pinoy that they were first brought into this situation because of "orientation" sessions.  

There were several such sessions at conference rooms at the imposing headquarter premises of the religious organization the Quakers, the Friends House, on London's Euston Road last summer and fall.

There is no suggestion that the Quakers were aware of the nature of these sessions, or that they knew these sessions were designed to defraud applicants. 

At these sessions, applicants were told they could get the necessary paperwork to get entrepreneur visas for around £7,000.

When Balita Pinoy contacted the Quakers, they initially stated that although the room seen in the photograph looked like one of their conference roomsand that the furniture was the same, they could not identify a booker from either the date we had given them, or that of the names of possible participants or company names.

However, last Friday we interviewed 15 victims, who pinned down one exact date of an "orientation" session, which we then communicated to the Quakers. This brought a totally different response.

A spokeswoman for the Quakers stated that they did not wish to comment on this matter further, and that they would only talk to the immigration authorities or police. She stated that she had heard the broadcast at lunchtime Monday by the BBC's "You & Yours" program on the visa fraud case and realized that this matter contained serious issues.

These "orientation" sesions stopped at the Quakers building opposite Euston Station and moved to Central House in Finchley sometime last fall.

We do applied in good faith and we did nothing wrong for the UK government. We are not so stupid to undergo such things if it's not genuine. We're just a victim of fraud here and with that we're going to fight for our right. We do respect the UK government, it's policies and rules that governs on it. We're the victims here not on our own doings but those oppurtunist and wicked people whom we trusted. We did our homeworks the best that we can. Yes, we're trying to step forward, but no intention to fool anyone. We're not fooling the government. Our future and dreams has been stolen from us, we invest too much time to build a future in here and now they're trying to take it away from us. We just a human beings, have some sort of plans for a better future. We're just victims seeking for justice. We want our future and dreams back. We want to fight for our right..

Yes, they are victimised but also they are victims of their own doings, in the sense that they didnt do their homework and stepped forward to deceive the H.O. for their own benefit.

A question to ask is "why would people look for something too good to be true?" and also "did these people, who tried to apply or applied for Ent. Or HS visa, breach the immigration rules and tried to deceive UKBA and ultimately the country?"

Isa po ako sa mga biktima ni FLERIDA NAVARRO FROST, nakilala ko sya sa isang kaibigan sa aming school, malapit na po kc ma expire ang ang student visa ko, sabi nya mag apply at subukan ko raw ang tier1 visa, nakakapagod daw kc mag estudyante sabi nya. Sabi nya, baka tatlong buwan lang, baka may visa na ako, sigurado daw kc may kapit sya sa home office. 4000 pounds ang paunang bayad, 3000 pagka dating ng visa. Sila na raw bahala sa sponsors. Ang dami nyang pinangako, dahil sa kagustuhan kong mapaganda ang buhay ko dito sa UK, kahit wala ako pera, napapayag nya ako. Nagbayad ako ng 4000 pounds, nagutom ako ng isang linggo, abot ang tipid ko. Kahit kelangan ng pera sa pinas, hindi ako nagpadala ng ng dalawang buwan. Grabe ang adjustment at sinakripisyo ko. Grabe ka FLERIDA FROST, di ka na naawa sa aming estudyante, ilang buwang ipon namin ang binayad namin sayo. Nagtiwala kami sayo, mapagsamantala ka, para kang linta, sinipsip mo lahat ng dugo namin, at wala kana halos tinira. Peke yung sponsorship na binigay mo. Sinubukan kong tawagan pero hindi kumpleto ang numero. May mga aplikante na palang nakulong dahil sa mga pekeng dokumento. Bago kami nag apply ang ganda ng mga sinabi mo, naniwala kami. Ang galing mo, Propesyonal ka sa panloloko. Di ka na naawa sa mga kababayan mong pilipino. Salot ka nga sa mga pilipino dito, sana hindi ka na lang namin nakilala. Please naman, magbanat ka ng buto FLERIDA FROST, hindi yung ninanakaw mo ang mga pera namin. Ang sama mo FLERIDA FROST, salot ka sa mga mamamayang pilipino dito sa UK. Manloloko. Manggagantso ka.

Ang mensahing ito ay para sayo FLERIDA NAVARRO FROST... Gahaman ka sa pera, manloloko ka, halang ang kaluluwa mo, buhay ka pa lang, sunog na ang kaluluwa mo. Sinira mo ang bawat pangarap namin, peke ka. Di ka na naawa sa mga nagtatrabaho ng marangal, pinaghirapan namin ang mga binayad namin sa yo, nilustay mo lang pala ang mga pera namin. Ang kapal ng mukha mong magbakasyon sa pinas at mag astang milyonarya, di alam ng tao pera ng estudyante ang mga ginastos mo, pinapakain mo sa mga anak mo. Ang kapal ng mukha mo, animal ka. Wala kang konsyensya, buti nakakakain ka pa ng may gana. Masyado kang greedy sa pera, kapal ng mukha mo. Magbanat ka ng buto hindi yung panloloko ang ginagawa mo. Ang itim ng budhi mo.

Hindi ako sigurado tungkol sa Flerida, na ito? ngunit ako ay pagkuha ng tungkol sa kanilang mga opisina ng kumpanya sa Edinburgh kung saan ako inilapat sa 2011. Paano i palawakin ang aking visa ngayon? Maaari kang makatulong. Oo alam ko mr Powell at mr Phillip, Powell nakatira sa Netherlands ngunit maglakbay siya sa London. Ito ay sa 2011. Ko na makipag-ugnayan sa mga detalye ng Philip ay ang may-ari ngunit walang tugon.

Hello everyone! I'd like to know any updates about the case? I am going home to the phils next month but the home office informed me that they don't have my passport. I'm pretty sure that powell's office have my passport because I never receive a confirmation from the UKBA about my application from them. Can anyone help me please, I badly need my passport. Here is my email address yadz_koykoy@yahoo.com thanks!

Unfortunately for Roxanna as well as for Anonymous, the comments attributed could not be further from the truth. Balita Pinoy is not in the immigration business. We are not qualified to do so, and in fact are in the news & information business. There are at present three companies involved in immigration advice who advertize in Balita Pinoy, they pay for the advertizing, as do other advertizers, we have the invoices to prove it. As for the newsletters from Immigration Matters, we take certain articles from their site (with their permission and with the correct attribution) when it is deemed needed for story/news purposes likely to be of interest to our readers. If readers peruse further articles, they will see news items from other sources are used (UKBA are one souce) including court reports. Balita Pinoy's competitors are other news sites/papers.

This is very important comments written by anonymous on January 24, 2013. This is true, It is all business my god ! All the Filipino victims are suffering and they are paying to someone for nonsense work. Please read again his comments Anonymous says to Editor : Your explanation is rubbish. Why don't you admit that the real reason why you keep deleting my comments. Don't mislead us. The same people who runs this thread make money out of desperate visa applicants. Do not take us all for fools. I was amused to learn that the people behind this blog are involved in the same business. They are "agents" who apply people who are desperate to stay in England, for specific student visas which they do not need. How people obviously unqualified can acquire visas as students or even those who graduated with higher degrees back in their respective countries and studies lower diploma courses here in Britain, is beyond me. But Agencies such as yours, you help perpetuate this crime. Just have a look at your latest blogs... http://www.immigrationmatters.co.uk/what-to-do-if-you-receive-a-‘go-home’-message-from-capita-on-behalf-of-ukba.html. What message does this convey to these people. Ignore the UKBA. Disobey the law.... come to us and we will help you .. For a fee! Disgusting Marketing tactics! I doubt these so called "immigration specialist" will help students for FREE. You are no different from these Fraudulent agents you expose. But of course, they are your competitors in this dirty business.

@Batman, you think I will believe that you are british... not in a million years mate! Illegal migrants- may it be Filipinos, Romanians, pakistanis, etc. coming over to this country is like welcoming people in your house, you dress them, feed them and when you tell them its time for them to go, they wouldn't... because they just enjoyed all the perks of being in your house. And when you are successful in throwing them out. They'll tell you that you are a prick and then they seek ways to get back in, or even hide inside the closet or underneath your bed so they won't be found out. I cannot explain the concept any simpler than that just for you to understand. I am glad I'm not talking to you in person cause I would not last one minute with your dumb arguments. Those who are have no legal right to stay should go..... that is for the best interest of England. nobody wants these illegals here, unless you are an Overaged pensioner and you just happen to shag your cleaner.If you are really legal here in the UK as you claim, all you have to do is switch on your radio or television or if you can, read a newspaper and you will see that illegal immigrants are ruining this country. And here is something for you... "Immigration Minister Mark Harper said: “It’s no surprise that after years of uncontrolled immigration, we have a sizeable illegal immigrant population in Britain. We are determined to get immigration under control, and in the last year net migration has fallen by a quarter. We also want to get tough on illegal immigration. Last year we removed 40,000 people from the UK who had no right to remain in the UK, and every day it gets harder to live illegally in the UK.” This is not rocket science....

anonymous and punisher, i was reading your comments regarding people seeking advice from agents. my answer for these, some people they go to agent rather to UKBA, are as follows. 1-people think they know the immigration laws, 2, they can help with the paper works what needed, 3-they dont want to get in trouble, 4 its easy and convinience. why you 2- always look in a bad ways. if you know anybody illigal in this country just reported, rather you 2-keeps saying all filipinos. i am british but you 2-keeps offended my filipinos friends. please dont used all filipinos..not fair to those who are working hard here and legal status in UK.

At kung wala ka talagang pera, bakit ka magaapply ng entrepreneur. Dapat mag-apply nalang sa talagang legal na paraan. Maraming estudyante na pakalat kalat at TNT na ngayon. Nakakaawa tuloy ang kalagayan nila. Lalo na pag nahuli. Balita ko kinukulong na ngayon ang mga TNT saka pinapauwi.

I dont think so, we have families here like u have families in other countries and yes it is hard to imigrate to other countries but it doesnt mean that I HAVE BAD LANGUAGE AND I DONT SPEAK WELL.

@batman. You just made my day for telling me the best joke I have ever heard in my life. You are employed as a pensions adviser? I hope you do it in Filipino and not in English because as far as I am concerned, you clearly cannot speak the language very well. The fact that you are even employed in that position as you claim, is very worrying. You obviously do not deserve your job. You are the one who needs to go back to school and study more. Learn proper English! That is just a friendly advice from me. Then maybe you do not have to pretend. If you cannot understand my vocabs then please buy yourself a dictionary. It is dirt cheap. Im sure you can afford it with your pitiful salary. * grins* you are where you are at the moment, I cannot reinvent the wheel. The truth is all I am saying, if you cannot accept that, then I feel so sorry for you. Immigrants will always be treated as a second class citizen in this country. And this my friend, is the reality for you and your illegal friends.

@batman, I did not remember mentioning skin colour in any of my post neither did I single out specific nationality. I am not being racist. I'm being truthful. If you are illegal, then there is a reason for you to be offended with my post. All countries have problems in immigration? Are you having a laugh, I do not see thousands of brits applying for visas to work or stay in the Philippines. All your arguments are completely nonsensical. "All" Filipinos are paying taxes? are you sure. Get your facts right! All you have to do is ask the Home Office how many Filipino illegal immigrants are living in this country or maybe even you can name a few. I am telling you now that its never going to be easy for illegals to live here in this country. Every year, the rule gets tougher.. to prevent these people to multiply like rats. England will get back on its feet, as long as the government watch its borders. Otherwise, just like any poor nation like Philippines, Pakistan, Romania or Poland.

anonymous stop making any more bad comments about filipinos, they are not all of them like what u think. your comments its very racist remark. next minute your saying just for that illigal person or people that you are against it but next minute you are saying all filipinos shouldnt be here in england, thats for me its very racist remark almost you are saying any colour people shouldnt be here. most filipinos people are very hard working and they are paying full tax for this country. most filipinos they are taking advice for the specialist like immigration officer to get advice or solicitors, bcos they dont want to get in trouble not bcos trying to get illegal means but obvousley not all of them, all country have problems in immigration not just this country..when you talk think carefully offend a lot of people..

Your explanation is rubbish. Why don't you admit that the real reason why you keep deleting my comments. Don't mislead us. The same people who runs this thread make money out of desperate visa applicants. Do not take us all for fools. I was amused to learn that the people behind this blog are involved in the same business. They are "agents" who apply people who are desperate to stay in England, for specific student visas which they do not need. How people obviously unqualified can acquire visas as students or even those who graduated with higher degrees back in their respective countries and studies lower diploma courses here in Britain, is beyond me. But Agencies such as yours, you help perpetuate this crime. Just have a look at your latest blogs... http://www.immigrationmatters.co.uk/what-to-do-if-you-receive-a-‘go-home’-message-from-capita-on-behalf-of-ukba.html. What message does this convey to these people. Ignore the UKBA. Disobey the law.... come to us and we will help you .. For a fee! Disgusting Marketing tactics! I doubt these so called "immigration specialist" will help students for FREE. You are no different from these Fraudulent agents you expose. But of course, they are your competitors in this dirty business.

Mabuti naman at natapos na rin to sa wakas. tama lang na nahuli na sila dahil halata naman na di totoo yung entrepreneur visa. Dapat matagal nang naireport yan. Matitigas kc Ang mga ulo, Kahit sabihan nang wag mag-apply nasa Pinas pa Lang. Nagpumilit pa rin. batch namin talagang pumasok kami sa college ng diploma course. Kaya Lang marami talagang reklamo lalo na yung mga estudyante na di makahanap ng regular na trabaho tapos magbabayad pa ng fees sa school and accommodation. Dapat ipagbawal na yung mga agents. Madaming naloloko. Mahirap tlaga Ang buhay student dito sa Uk. Kung inutang Lang yung pinangenroll dito, Hindi talagang mababawi. Kung Hindi pa Marenew Ang visa, yung iba Wla talagang choice kindi magtago Dahil sila Lang Ang inaasahan sa Pilipinas. Yung mga gusto pang magapply papunta dito. Magisip kayo at wag magpapaloko.

I do not understand why Balita Pinoy keeps on removing/ editing comments. I do not think I am going beyond the rules of this thread. I am not cursing/ saying profanities here. This is a healthy discussion and I, like all other people here should be allowed to give a piece of our mind regarding this very important topic of Illegal immigration.

Ang importante lang sa ngayon ay makulong Si Flerida Frost para matigil na mga Gawain nya na nagpapahirap sa ating mga kababayang Pilipino. Masira din Ang buhay nya Gaya ng mga nararanasan ngayon ng mga biktimang winalang hiya nya. Magka isa tayong lahat, hawak kamay tayo, Siguro ipasa Diyos na lang natin lahat at bahala na Ang UKBA na humusga. Anuman Po Ang mangyari, mapauwi man tayo, may mga pamilyang naghihintay, mga pamilya parin uuwian natin, eh Si Flerida, pag nalaman ng Buong sambayanang Pilipino Ang kawalang hiyaan nya, pag nalaman ng mga Amiga, mga Artista at ka pamilya nya mga kahayupang pinaggagawa nya, ire respeto pa kaya sya? Baka lahat sa kanya MAWALA.

After i read all the comments from carlo and anonymous i think anonymous got a point and @carlo ur so defensive ur saying ur future has been taken away right! What is ur visa when u came here in the UK is it student visa is that right? so it means u came here to study then not to work, but on ur complaints looks like u came here in this country to work not to study coz ur seeking for ur future am i right or wrong? Now tell me that ur not fooling the government and u people as far as i know are working cash on hand so it means ur not paying tax! If u really want to renew or get a visa u can get staight to UKBA but why do u need an agent to sort it out for u? I can see that u can speak english and u can read as well so i think that there is no reason that u can't apply on ur own. The thing i can see in here is u want to sort out ur visa illegaly thats why u need an agent to help u coz ur staying illegaly here now am i right mr carlo, plz tell if im wrong to all what i said. All i can say is UK is falling down because of all ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS hope all of u will get caught and send u back where u came from!

For your information, we don't signed with agent like Flerida Frost, we signed with her Lloyds Immigration Solicitors, secondly, we came in the UK legally and served our purpose here according to Law. We paid our tax contributions and we're not taking advantage on any benefits from UK government. We work hard, fair and straight, we're not stealing like these opportunist and wicked people that obviously you're trying to cover them and finally YES I'm speaking for every Filipino victims that you're trying to humiliate and demean here. We're not a burden in this country. You don't have the right to judge Filipinos, Shame on you if it's true that you're really English British which I doubt it, you're just one of Flerida's trying to cover her ass. By the way, why not ask Flerida if whats the commission for every referrals all about if she claims that applicants came to her not seeking them? Obviously, you don't know what you're saying and before you speak, be sure that you're knowledgeable enough. As for our level of English, this is us, you might judge it but we're so proud as English is just our Second Language. Filipinos are scattered everywhere because of the ability to speak English. Why not study Latin and see if you'll be fluent on it. I've had enough to say, you're just wasting our time.

You can all say what you want... it all boils down to the fact that you are all coming here in England without the right papers and visas. Did Flerida Frost seek you or did you come to her to sort out your papers? And why did you not go straight to the UKBA if you really intend to legally stay in England. Cut down the BS and get straight to the point. By the way you are speaking Carlo and with your level of English, I beleive you are one of those people. A lot of you will work for pennies and stay her illegally. Of course, life is harder in the Philippines. High unemployment, no benefits from your government. Life will be better for you out here. And yes, Flerida Frost has to pay you She needs to face the consequences of her actions too. That is my own unbiased opinion. The truth will come out at the end of the day and I believe that there is more to this story that what is written....

Listen to your own words alone and live like a lonely hermit. We don't need your opinion here. There are immigration lawyers to sort things out and to weigh things, not your own way. Hoping that you can get some benefits by acting this way. You've done so much effort trying to ruin our lives here. Bravo!!!

@ Carlo, the only point that I keep on reiterating is that NO court or judge should support a system that rewards people for coming illegally into the UK, working in the black market economy avoiding contributing to UK taxes and social contributions. A these type of people are going to work here illegally for cheap labor. We have enough Cleaners, Kitchen workers, nannies, domestic workers here in Britain. Thank you very much! It should not be allowed and this is damaging to the UK society. All I am against for is illegal immigration. Are you disputing my views because you are one of those people who believes in this system?

You are entitled to your own opinion and that is your opinion. Lets see how it goes. Who are you to chart our destinies in here. There are immigration lawyers to weigh things not your own way. I think there's nothing to do with you within this case and we don't need any opinion of yours. Even until the last ounce of hope, we're here to seek justice.

continuation.. FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS by all means! But it is pretty obvious that what you want after all these is that the UKBA will turn a blind eye on you lot and they will issue you a visa. YOU CAN ALL DREAM ON. This operation had now ceased and hopefully there are more to follow. Illegal immigration in Britain must end.

THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN MODERATED Ignorantia juris non excusat or ignorantia legis neminem excusat (Latin for "ignorance of the law does not excuse" or "ignorance of the law excuses no one") is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because he or she was unaware of its content. The essential public character of a law requires that the law must apply to anyone in the jurisdiction where the law applies. Thus, no one can justify his conduct on the grounds that he was not aware of the law. In this day and age of internet. It is not difficult to find out what you need. UKBA had well published their rules and I think their requirements are fairly stipulated in layman's terms. Therefore, these people have no excuse not to know. IF they are legitimate Students or entrepreneurs. They will not need an agent. They will apply by themselves. They know beforehand that it is a scam/ bogus act but willingly participated in the premise that they will get a visa. I cannot wait to see how this case will pan out. I think there is a conflict of interest there. Flerida Navarro, once jailed, should take down with her everybody- partners and applicants- who got involved with this business of hers. That is the only time, the real justice will be served. Balita Pinoy Editor, if you are not one sided, why on earth did you not include any information about this Bangladeshi man- and his involvement in the activities. Did you publish your story with incomplete information as this looks to me as a personal vendetta o rather than an honest piece of News. I think he should also be named and shamed. REPLY BY BALITA PINOY: The laws of sub judice apply, when the UKBA/Police officially release the name of the Bangladeshi man, or we become aware of his name by other sources, we will reveal it.

Do you ever think we're that stupid to be a connivance of those fraudaulent acts and we're going to risk ourselves just to fool anyone? We're not that desperate to do these things. Are we going to grill ourselves inside the oven just to fool anyone or the government. We're victims here not accomplices. These filipino woman deceived us by promising genuine sponsors that do not exist or we're never going to be provided. We're not going to risk ourselves if we only knew it immediately, do you ever consider what we're going through at this point in time? We're not only harmed financially but emotionally. Before you speak, put your place in our shoes as victims. If it happened that the UKBA believed that our papers are correct and our visas gets issued, still we're going to act the right thing and will be reporting it to the authority. You don't have any idea how stressful we are, the situation of potentially harmful, damaging and traumatising experience that you don't wish to happen. We don't intent to fool the government, we don't have the knowledge of this fraudulent act. We're the victims here. We are not chancers, we are just dreamers. We're aiming a good, clean and honest application. They told us that they are solicitors and legal assistants, we entrusted them our papers. But these people are opportunist, wicked people. We're not burying our heads in the sand, we're trying to take our heads out of the sand. We are innocent in this fraudulent act and we're ready to face the truth. The truth is we are victims and we're here seeking justice. Fighting for our rights. This Fraud is a terrible crime that causes great harm among us victims. We are deceived and taken advantage of. Maybe we're not smart enough to prevent it from happening but we are honest enough and we did this application in good faith. We may never know the outcome of this case, but we would like to prove that we are innocent. You don't even have the idea what's the added strain that we are going through. Before you speak, think every letter, of every word, of every line, in every paragraph. You don't have the right to judge us and to demean us. We victims deserves a respect...

Also, if I may add, this article is a bad journalism. It is a one way, biased report. The Filipinos always bury their heads in the sand, they like pretending they do not know whats going on. Playing "victims". Their identities should also be divulged and UKBA should all detain them. They do not have a business to be here in the UK. They do not qualify for a visa... therefore, should all be sent back to the Philippines. I do not quite agree they are completely innocent... and this is a good point raised by the lawyer on the BBC interview. They know the concept of "show money" and this is for the reason to mislead the UKBA into thinking that they are qualified, when they aren't. The scammers should be asked to pay and serve maximum sentences. And this should also be investigated widely by UKBA as this big web of deceit, lies and scams are happening everywhere in Britain. Filipinos, stop burying your heads in the sand, face the truth, the reason why you are here is because you are desperate. Britain for you is a greener pasteur and you would like to stay here for the prospect of working to send money back home. I hope this case would have a UK-wide coverage to serve as an example for those who, like them, are cheaters and hypocrites.

Very good effort for the UKBA to crack down on these people. The woman should be sentenced for Fraud/ false representation with maximum punishment of 3 to 7 years. The tribunal should also look into these Filipinos who participated in the process. I believe they are not "victims" but they are also accomplices. Here in the UK, Ignorance of the law is not an excuse. They knew what was up and they are willing to go through the process of the crime and pay any amount just to save themselves from losing their legal stay here in the UK. These people are chancers.... if some idiot at the UKBA happened to beleive that the papers are correct and their visas gets issued, then they will not complain. They will be here in the country seeking employment. This had been going on for years but the reason why these people are here, is because the UKBA declined their visas. There are a lot of cases not just for Filipinos but for students of other nationalities coming over from third world countries such as India, Bangladesh etc. applying for student visas but their main purpose is to seek jobs. There should be a regulation to stop these people from taking advantage of the law. Because of these loopholes, these scammers find the opportunity to take advantage of people. Zero Tolerance for these cases. Its a no brainer.

There have been attempts at manipulating comments here; for example, comments by @George and Nevermind came from the same computer. If people do this in future we will leave the comments up and reveal this crude attempt at manipulation.

We do applied in good faith and we did nothing wrong for the UK government. We are not so stupid to undergo such things if it's not genuine. We're just a victim of fraud here and with that we're going to fight for our right. We do respect the UK government, it's policies and rules that governs on it. We're the victims here not on our own doings but those oppurtunist and wicked people whom we trusted. We did our homeworks the best that we can. Yes, we're trying to step forward, but no intention to fool anyone. We're not fooling the government. Our future and dreams has been stolen from us, we invest too much time to build a future in here and now they're trying to take it away from us. We just a human beings, have some sort of plans for a better future. We're just victims seeking for justice. We want our future and dreams back. We want to fight for our right..

A question to ask is "why would people look for something too good to be true?" and also "did these people, who tried to apply or applied for Ent. Or HS visa, breach the immigration rules and tried to deceive UKBA and ultimately the country?"
