Default FRAUDULENT DEGREES FEDS COVERING UP

Children's counselor charged with fraud

By Marsha Forys TRIBUNE-REVIEW Tuesday, April 26, 2005

A Connellsville man is accused of working as a children's mental health
counselor to state medical assistance recipients for almost three years
without having the proper qualifications.
Leon Edward Shal Jr., 60, of 420 S. Eighth St., faces charges of
complicity, welfare fraud, theft by deception and insurance fraud,
filed by the state Attorney General's Office after a yearlong
investigation.

Shal was a member of the therapeutic support staff at Connellsville
Psychological and Counseling Services, 41 S. Pittsburgh St., from April
2000 to February 2003, according to court documents.

During that time, he allegedly counseled numerous young patients -- all
of whom were clients of the state Department of Public Welfare, Medical
Assistance Program, and he billed the state for his services through
Richard W. Pritts, his employer, and Value Behavioral Health of
Pennsylvania Inc., a health maintenance organization contracted by
Fayette County.

The type of services allegedly offered by Shal required that the
provider have an education that includes, at minimum, a bachelor's
degree. Shal allegedly told his employer he obtained his degree from
Shaftesbury University, in the United Kingdom, in 1986.

However, the state's investigation revealed that, not only did Shal's
university diploma contain two misspellings, but the institution is not
recognized, or accredited, in the United Kingdom or the U.S.

And while the school claims to be accredited by the European Committee
for Home and Online Education, that institution also is not recognized
in the United Kingdom or the U.S.

The state further claims that Shal, when counseling medical assistance
patients, was required by state law to do so one-on-one, yet billing
information obtained by investigators showed that he had on numerous
occasions billed the state for treating two or more patients at the
same time, according to court documents.

The state's investigation allegedly found that Value Behavioral Health
had paid Connellsville Counseling and Psychological Services almost
$150,000 for therapy services allegedly rendered by Shal during the
three years he worked at the clinic.

Shal was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Ronald Haggerty
Sr., of Connellsville, and remains free on $20,000 unsecured bond. A
preliminary hearing has been set for June 2 before Haggerty.

Trial that could out feds alleged to have bogus degrees delayed By
Karen Rutzick

Names of 135 federal employees who allegedly bought fake diplomas from
an outfit in the western United States will not be revealed for at
least one year, if ever, according to a U.S attorney's office.

Last week in Spokane, Wash., during a pretrial hearing for eight people
accused of selling counterfeit degrees from nonexistent universities, a
defense attorney told the judge that employees from the National
Security Agency and the Health and Human Services, Justice and State
departments were among 6,000 people who bought the diplomas, according
to the Associated Press.

The AP also reported that Peter Schweda, attorney for alleged diploma
mill operator Steven Randock, said the names of 135 government
employees who supposedly purchased the degrees for promotions or pay
raises would be released during the course of the trial.

The trial will not start for another year, though. Judge Lonny Suko of
the District Court of the Eastern District of Washington delayed it
until Oct. 1, 2007, to give attorneys more time to prepare. Suko said
more than 150,000 pages of e-mails, 40 CDs of documents and up to 50
witnesses will be used.

Tom Rice, a spokesman for the U.S attorney's office in Spokane, Wash.,
which is prosecuting the case, said Schweda's assertions that
government purchasers would be revealed "were not necessarily
accurate."

Rice also said he cannot confirm or deny that there is a separate
Justice Department investigation into federal purchasers of the fake
degrees. The case was built around a sting operation by a handful of
Secret Service agents.

"It has been said that [names] may become available in that trial, but
sitting here discussing it with you, I don't see how it's relevant to
the Randock trial who purchased them," Rice said. "That'd be like
saying everybody who used cocaine would be introduced in the trial of
Manuel Noriega."

The 40-page indictment for defendants Steven Randock, Dixie Randock,
Richard Novak, Blake Carlson, Amy Hensley, Heidi Lorhan, Roberta
Markishtum and Kenneth Pearson accuses them of conspiracy to commit
mail fraud, among other offenses. Pearson pleaded guilty last week.

The defendants allegedly set up a number of bogus universities,
including "Saint Regis University," "James Monroe University" and
"Trinity Christian School." They then sold diplomas and fake
transcripts without requiring any coursework or testing.

One of the fake universities, "Robertstown University," used a
photograph of Blenheim Castle, the birthplace of Winston Churchill and
home of the Duke of Marlborough, to depict its campus on a Web site,
according to the indictment.

In 2004, the Office of Personnel Management held seminars to train
federal managers on spotting fake degrees. OPM and congressional
overseers stepped up efforts to thwart diploma mills after Laura
Callahan, a senior director in the Homeland Security Department chief
information officer's office, was found to have purchased her degrees
from an alleged diploma mill in Wyoming.

OPM did not respond to requests for comment on any current
investigation into federal employees involved in the Randock case.

OWNERS AND EMPLOYEES OF DIPLOMA MILL INDICTED

FOR CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT WIRE FRAUD, MAIL FRAUD AND MONEY LAUNDERING



Spokane - Today, James A. McDevitt, United States Attorney
for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that a Federal Grand
Jury in the Eastern District of Washington returned a three-count
Indictment charging eight individuals with conspiracy to commit mail
fraud and wire fraud. According to the 40-page Indictment, Dixie Ellen
Randock, Steven Karl Randock, Sr., Blake Allan Carlson, Heidi Kae
Lorhan, Amy Leann Hensley, Roberta Lynn Markishtum, and Kenneth Wade
Pearson, using the internet, conspired to manufacture, print, and sell
fraudulent academic products, i.e., high school diplomas, college and
graduate-level degrees, and related documents to consumers throughout
the world so those consumers could get hired or promoted in their jobs
or obtain H1B Visas. Thousands of degrees were sold. The Indictment
alleges that Colbert, Washington residents, Dixie Ellen Randock and
Steven Karl Randock, Sr. owned several diploma mills and related
businesses, including "Saint Regis University," Robertstown
University," "James Monroe University," James

Monroe University High School," and Trinity Christian School."
According to the Indictment, by accessing one of those websites and
paying fees between $399 and $2,454, consumers could be "evaluated"
for a degree by Heidi Kae Lorhan, a high school dropout, and Amy Leann
Hensley. Alternatively, a consumer could access one of their websites
and take a 125-question test, answer only twenty-five percent of the
questions correctly, and be awarded a high school diploma. The degrees
and related documents would then be printed and shipped to consumer
throughout the world.

According to the Indictment, to make the degrees look official,
Spokane businessman, Blake Allan Carlson, manufactured fraudulent
rubber stamps and seals, and Spokane resident, Kenneth Wade Pearson,
acted as the web server for several of the diploma mill websites.
According to the Indictment, Mead, Washington resident, Roberta Lynn
Markishtum, printed some of the fraudulent documents and falsely
confirmed via telephone to employers and potential employers that the
degrees purchased were valid.

As part of the scheme to defraud, the Indictment alleges that
Dixie Ellen Randock and Steven Karl Randock, Sr. also caused a
fabricated website to be created, which posed as the official and
legitimate government website of the Liberian Embassy in Washington,
D.C. The Indictment also alleges that Peoria, Arizona resident,
Richard John Novak, worked as a "consultant" to process the
fraudulent degrees sold to foreign consumers. The Indictment also
alleges that a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service,
Department of Homeland Security, while acting in an undercover capacity
as a retired Syrian military officer who wanted to quickly obtain an
H1B Visa, and using the undercover name Mohammed Syed, was able to
purchase from "James Monroe University" degrees in chemistry and
environmental engineering.

Dixie Ellen Randock and Steven Karl Randock, Sr. are also
charged with conspiring to launder $1,026,874.80 as a result of the
diploma mill scheme. The Indictment seeks forfeiture of the
Randock's property and other assets including their Colbert home,
approximately $55,000 in U.S. currency and $480,000 in various bank
accounts, and a 2001 Jaguar.

If convicted of the wire and mail fraud conspiracy, each
defendant could be sentenced to up to five years in prison, a $250,000
fine, three years of supervised release, the payment of restitution,
and a $100 special penalty assessment. If convicted of the money
laundering conspiracy, Dixie Ellen Randock and Steven Karl Randock, Sr.
could be sentenced to up to twenty years in prison, a $500,000 fine or
twice the amount of money laundered, five years of supervised release,
and a special penalty assessment of $100.

The case is being investigated by a multi-agency task force led
by the United States Secret Service, in cooperation with the Internal
Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation, Department of Treasury, the
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Washington State
Attorney General's Office, the Spokane Police Department, the United
States Postal Inspection Service, and the United States Attorney's
Office for the Eastern District of Washington. The case is being
handled by Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of
Washington, George J.C. Jacobs, III.

The United States Attorney's Office in Spokane has
established a 1-800 number if you believe that you were a victim of the
fraud or can provide information to the investigators. The telephone
number is 1-800-775-6357.

An Indictment provides notice to the individual of the crimes
he/she is alleged to have committed. Each individual is presumed
innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Indictments accuse eight of running diploma mills
Spokane operation allegedly sold thousands of fraudulent degrees

Bill Morlin Staff writer October 6, 2005

For the first time in the United States, federal investigators in
Spokane have obtained indictments against eight people accused of
operating Internet-based diploma mills, making millions by selling
bogus college degrees and "defrauding consumers worldwide."

The 40-page indictment accuses the eight of conspiring to commit wire
and mail fraud during the past six years as they operated out of
businesses in Mead and Hillyard, and a Post Falls office complex.

Accused masterminds Dixie Ellen Randock and her husband, Steven Karl
Randock, both of Colbert, also were indicted for conspiracy to launder
more than $1 million they collected from selling bogus degrees.


The indictment alleges that during the past six years the Spokane-based
operation sold "thousands of degrees," using various diploma mills
including Saint Regis University, Robertstown University, James Monroe
University and Trinity Christian School.

The indictment also seeks criminal forfeiture of the Randocks'
late-model Jaguar, their home and acreage at 3127 E. River Glen Drive,
and $536,517 that federal agents seized in a series of searches in
August.

The Randocks also will be liable for repayment of the money they
received as the result of selling the bogus degrees, many of them to
foreign nationals who used the credentials to fraudulently obtain
easier entry to the United States.

Also named in the indictment was Dixie Randock's daughter, Heidi Kae
Lorhan, a high-school dropout who worked as an "evaluator" for
applicants seeking bogus high school and college degrees.

Others indicted were Blake Alan Carlson, a Hillyard stamp shop owner
and co-founder of World Chapel Ministries; Amy Leann Hensley; Roberta
Lynn Markishtum and Kenneth Wade Pearson, all Spokane residents who
worked for the Randocks' operations.

Also indicted in the mail and wire fraud conspiracy was Richard John
Novak of Peoria, Ariz. Novak is accused of helping set up a meeting in
Washington, D.C., where a top-ranking Liberian diplomat was secretly
videotaped soliciting bribes from the Randocks. They are accused of
using the Board of Education in Liberia to accredit their various
diploma mills and sell accreditations to similar on-line operations.

"It's a significant case," said U.S. Attorney James A. McDevitt. The
allegations "again demonstrate that the Internet can be both a benefit
and a burden to all of us," said the region's federal crime chief.

"Here's something that was done exclusively on the Internet, and look
at the significance of the allegations," McDevitt said. "The second
point is that many of the buyers were foreign nationals who obtained
deferred status and could gain entry into the country with
less-than-authentic credentials."

Related court documents say half the degrees were sold to overseas
purchasers, a majority of whom were "students" from Saudi Arabia. That
revelation caused concern for investigators who said foreign nationals,
including potential terrorists, could more easily gain entry to the
United States with the fraudulent degrees.

The grand jury indictment came at the end of a nine-month task force
investigation, led by the U.S. Secret Service, and also involving the
Internal Revenue Service, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs
Enforcement, the Postal Inspection Service, the Washington State
Attorney General's Office and the Spokane Police Department.

The defendants are accused of using Internet Web sites to manufacture,
print and sell fraudulent academic products, including high school
diplomas and college and graduate-level degrees and related documents.

The federal investigation was launched after a November 2003 story in
The Spokesman-Review detailed the Spokane-based diploma mills.

"These degrees were sold to consumers throughout the world so those
(people) could get hired or promoted in their jobs or obtain H1B
(educational) visas," said Tom Rice and George Jacobs, assistant U.S.
attorneys who supervised the investigation.

Left unanswered is whether the Justice Department intends to prosecute
consumers, including teachers and federal employees, who knew they were
buying bogus degrees and used them for better-paying jobs. A half dozen
unemployed auto workers in Indiana used $42,000 in federal educational
retraining money to buy worthless advanced degrees from the
Spokane-based diploma mills.

"The operators of these 'universities' created a sophisticated web of
supporting infrastructure using the Internet which gave the operation
an aura of legitimacy," said Kevin M. Miller, agent in charge of the
Spokane office of the Secret Service. The defendants "built networks of
fake government agencies, accrediting organizations, and credential
evaluators."

"The investigation continues to determine if these documents have been
used by individuals to enroll for advanced degrees in U.S. and foreign
universities or to seek employment and promotion in both public and
private sector companies to include those involved in critical
infrastructure," Miller said.

To make the degrees look official, Carlson manufactured fraudulent
rubber stamps and seals, and Pearson acted as the Webmaster for several
of the diploma mill Web sites, the indictment alleges.

Markishtum is accused of printing some of the fraudulent documents and
falsely confirmed via telephone to employers and potential employers
that the degrees purchased were valid, the indictment further alleges.

As part of the scheme to defraud, the Randocks caused a fabricated Web
site to be created, which posed as the official and legitimate Web site
of the Liberian Embassy in Washington, D.C., the indictment said.

If convicted of the wire and mail fraud conspiracy, the defendants face
a maximum of five years in prison. The money laundering charge carries
a maximum of 20 years in prison, and a $500,000 fine.

Diploma-mill charges: degrees of deception

By Maureen O'Hagan Seattle Times staff reporter

With little more than a network of Web sites, telephones and bank
accounts, a group of eight people ran a million-dollar diploma business
that churned out thousands of bogus degrees, according to a federal
indictment.

The group, which ran St. Regis University and several related
businesses, was based in the Spokane area, although it purported to run
accredited colleges in Liberia. About half of the diplomas issued by
the group went to foreigners, leading authorities to worry that some
may use their phony degrees to qualify for U.S. work visas.

The indictment does not allege anyone used a bogus diploma to get into
the country. However, a Secret Service agent posing as a retired Syrian
military officer seeking a work visa was able to buy degrees in
engineering and chemistry, according to the indictment.

"We're concerned about it and it continues to be under investigation,"
said Thomas Rice, chief criminal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney's
Office in Spokane.

The elaborate deception included online photos of what were supposed to
be campuses in Liberia, including a photo of Blenheim Castle in
England, where Winston Churchill was born, the indictment states. The
group also allegedly tried to hire Liberian professors - not to teach
classes but to answer phone calls.

Named in the indictment, handed down Wednesday, are Dixie Ellen
Randock, Steven Karl Randock Sr., Richard John Novak, Blake Alan
Carlson, Amy Leann Hensley, Heidi Kae Lorhan, Roberta Markishtum and
Kenneth Pearson, all charged with mail fraud. In addition, the Randocks
are charged with money laundering. The U.S. Attorney is also seeking to
seize a number of assets, including $480,000 in bank accounts and a
2001 Jaguar.

A phone message left last night for the Randocks was not immediately
returned, and it was not known if they had hired lawyers.

Big business

The diploma-mill phenomenon is vast and thriving, according to national
experts, and relies on the Internet and e-mail to attract customers. It
recently made local news when it was discovered that King County
sheriff candidate and department veteran Jim Fuda took advantage of a
Sheriff's Office perk and obtained an online diploma to get a 2 percent
pay raise. Fuda said he simply submitted his diploma and got the raise,
so he assumed there was nothing wrong.

The indictments, handed down out of the Eastern District of Washington,
portray a well-thought-out operation. The group operated diploma mills
under a variety of names, including James Monroe University and Trinity
Christian School as well as St. Regis, according to the indictment. The
schools offered degrees from high school to doctorate for $400 to
nearly $2,500. The indictment said the diplomas, complete with
official-looking seals, came with phony transcripts and grade-point
averages, and that course descriptions were cut and pasted from other
Internet sites.

But the group offered much more than paper, according to the
indictment.

They set up "verification" businesses, with telephones manned by group
members in case an employer called to ask questions. And they even
created a business to "accredit" the diploma mills as a way to make
them seem legitimate, the indictment alleges.

The indictment quotes an e-mail from Dixie Randock to another defendant
demanding "someone ... answer the damn phones and say we are fully
accredited" in Liberia. Randock allegedly wanted to hire Liberian
professors for $50 to $100 a month to answer phone or e-mail questions.
"The first time they do not say the right thing, their money gets cut
off permanently," the e-mail states.

Evaluating visas

One of the related businesses purported to evaluate credentials for an
H1B visa, which has authorities concerned that a foreigner may use a
bogus diploma to get into the United States, according to Rice of the
U.S. Attorney's Office.

To get an H1B visa, a foreigner must be sponsored by an employer and
have at least a bachelor's degree in a specialty occupation, such as
chemical engineer, said Steve Miller, a Seattle immigration lawyer. The
number of H1B visas is limited and employers pay thousands of dollars
for them, including a fee intended to help weed out fraud.

St. Regis is not affiliated with any similarly named schools, including
Regis University of Colorado.

An arraignment is set for Oct. 27. Mail fraud carries a possible
sentence of up to five years in prison. Money laundering has a possible
sentence of 20 years.

The St. Regis Web site has been taken down, although one blurb remains:
"Special Notice to St. Regis University Students & Alumni: The
admissions office of St. Regis University is no longer accepting
applications."










Federal Judge Hides Names Of 135 U.S. Federal Goverment Employees Who
Purchased Bogus Degrees, For At Least A Year, Probably Forever -
Includes NSA, Department Of Justice, HHS, And State Department
Employees...
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON - Names of 135 federal employees who allegedly
bought fake diplomas from an outfit in the western United States will
not be revealed for at least one year, if ever, according to a U.S
attorney's office.

Last week in Spokane, Wash., during a pretrial hearing for eight people
accused of selling counterfeit degrees from nonexistent universities, a
defense attorney told the judge that employees from the National
Security Agency and the Health and Human Services, Justice and State
departments were among 6,000 people who bought the diplomas, according
to the Associated Press.

The AP also reported that Peter Schweda, attorney for alleged diploma
mill operator Steven Randock, said the names of 135 government
employees who supposedly purchased the degrees for promotions or pay
raises would be released during the course of the trial.

The trial will not start for another year, though. Judge Lonny Suko of
the District Court of the Eastern District of Washington delayed it
until Oct. 1, 2007, to give attorneys more time to prepare. Suko said
more than 150,000 pages of e-mails, 40 CDs of documents and up to 50
witnesses will be used.

Tom Rice, a spokesman for the U.S attorney's office in Spokane,
Wash., which is prosecuting the case, said Schweda's assertions that
government purchasers would be revealed "were not necessarily
accurate."

Rice also said he cannot confirm or deny that there is a separate
Justice Department investigation into federal purchasers of the fake
degrees. The case was built around a sting operation by a handful of
Secret Service agents.

"It has been said that [names] may become available in that trial,
but sitting here discussing it with you, I don't see how it's
relevant to the Randock trial who purchased them," Rice said.
"That'd be like saying everybody who used cocaine would be
introduced in the trial of Manuel Noriega."

The 40-page indictment for defendants Steven Randock, Dixie Randock,
Richard Novak, Blake Carlson, Amy Hensley, Heidi Lorhan, Roberta
Markishtum and Kenneth Pearson accuses them of conspiracy to commit
mail fraud, among other offenses. Pearson pleaded guilty last week.

The defendants allegedly set up a number of bogus universities,
including "Saint Regis University," "James Monroe University"
and "Trinity Christian School." They then sold diplomas and fake
transcripts without requiring any coursework or testing.

One of the fake universities, "Robertstown University," used a
photograph of Blenheim Castle, the birthplace of Winston Churchill and
home of the Duke of Marlborough, to depict its campus on a Web site,
according to the indictment.

In 2004, the Office of Personnel Management held seminars to train
federal managers on spotting fake degrees. OPM and congressional
overseers stepped up efforts to thwart diploma mills after Laura
Callahan, a senior director in the Homeland Security Department chief
information officer's office, was found to have purchased her degrees
from an alleged diploma mill in Wyoming.

OPM did not respond to requests for comment on any current
investigation into federal employees involved in the Randock case.
