SUBJECT: Fraud Summary – Kingston March 2009 – August 2009

¶1. (SBU) SUMMARY. In the second half of FY 2009, Kingston’s Fraud
Prevention Unit (FPU) focused on IV relationship fraud and
enhancing cooperation with our partners at the British and Canadian
High Commissions and the law enforcement community within the
Embassy. During the past two quarters, FPU attended a half-day
joint conference for the fraud units of the U.S., British, and
Canadian Missions; coordinated with CBP to train 212 airline
representatives on fraudulent document detection; and implemented
additional processes to prevent criminals from obtaining visas.
FPU received 406 Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV) cases, 57 new Immigrant
Visa (IV) cases, 21 ACS cases, and 150 external requests (database
checks from DHS, airlines, local immigration, etc.). FPU processed
an additional 391 walk-in cases and entered 2,427 CLASS records
based on I-275 turn around reports, information from other agencies
and other tips. Of all the visa cases referred, 42% of IV cases
were confirmed fraud and 27% of the NIV cases were confirmed fraud.
END SUMMARY

——————
COUNTRY CONDITIONS
——————

¶2. (SBU) Jamaica, located 550 miles south of Florida, has a
population estimated to be 2.8 million and a 2008 GDP of USD 14
billion. In 2008, remittances were responsible for 20% of GDP and,
even before the effects of the economic downturn began to hit
Jamaica, its 2008 unemployment rate was 11%.
Independent since 1962, Jamaica is a member of the British
Commonwealth with a constitutional parliamentary democracy with
relatively high literacy rates, an outspoken and vibrant press, and
an open market economy. Two parties, both originating from labor
movements, dominate the political scene: the Jamaica Labor Party,
elected in 2007 and led by Prime Minister Bruce Golding, and the
Peoples National Party.

¶3. (SBU) Jamaica is a major producer of marijuana (“ganja”;) for the
U.S. market. Jamaica is also routinely exploited as a narcotics
(including cocaine) transshipment hub. Jamaica is also a
significant transit hub for other contraband, particularly weapons
smuggling in the form of a robust guns for drugs trade with Haiti.
The Department rates the crime threat as critical. Depressed
economic conditions and the presence of the drug trade contribute
to civil unrest and criminal activity, including significant visa
and citizenship fraud. Illegal migration, transnational crime,
economic inertia, and a formidable HIV/AIDS presence adversely
affect U.S. national security, economic, democracy, and other
strategic interests.

¶4. (U) Jamaica’s proximity to the U.S. mainland and well-developed
sea lanes and air links facilitate the movements of over two
million travelers, including well over two million American
tourists annually between the United States and Jamaica. An
estimated 34,100 U.S. citizens reside in Embassy Kingston’s
consular district, which includes the Cayman Islands. Kingston’s
Consular Section supports consular agents in Montego Bay and the
Cayman Islands.

¶5. (SBU) The incidence of suspected fraud in many government
agencies is high. Visa applicants often submit forged or altered
birth, marriage, and police certificates. Jamaica’s corruption
index score by Transparency International has a 2.8% confidence,
placing it 96 out of 180 rated countries, which is well below other
WHA countries, such as Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, and Chile.

———————–
NONIMMIGRANT VISA FRAUD
———————–

¶6. (SBU) H-2B PETITION FRAUD: Post has been involved in assisting
the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia in a
criminal case against two of the Jamaican recruiters that were
finding workers for convicted alien trafficker Victor Krus: Clover
Mae Robinson-Gordon and O’Brian Gordon (Obriclo Marketing Agency).
ICE, DS and the members of the US Attorney’s office came to
Kingston to observe H2b interviews as well as to familiarize
themselves with post’s H2b intake procedures. Kingston’s Visa
Chief will be testifying as a witness in the case in October 2009.
FPU also learned that Hospitality Management and Catering Services
had also been involved with supplying labor to Viktar Krus for his
staffing companies. In April, the Fraud Prevention Manager along
with an Entry Level Officer met with personnel from the Ministry of
Labour Overseas Employment Department regarding its processing of
H2B visas applicants and H2A agricultural workers. FPU has
expressed interest in the MOL’s H2B and H2A conference tentatively
scheduled for late January to early February 2010.
¶7. (U) NIV DUAL IDENTITY CASE: Post has seen an increase in the
number of identity fraud cases caught through Facial Recognition.
Two cases in particular were performers who required a waiver for
prior drug activity through the ARO. In both cases, FR showed that
the applicant had been issued a visa under a different identity.
Both applicants were subsequently refused 6(C)(1). In both cases,
post requested an Advisory Opinion withdrawing its recommendation
for a waiver to which the Department agreed. An Immigration
Officer employed by the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship
Agency (PICA) was terminated after FPU’s investigations revealed
discrepancies on her letter of employment. In addition to
overstating her salary allowance, this applicant also forged the
signature of PICA’s former Director of Human Resources, who was no
longer at the agency at the date of her employment was supposedly
signed. Another NIV applicant and member of Jamaica Fire Brigade
faced internal disciplinary sanction or dismissal after the
Brigade’s Acting Commissioner apologized to the Embassy on behalf
of his Department, for this applicant discreditable act of
falsifying documents for U.S. training.

¶8. (U) J-1 SUMMER WORK AND TRAVEL PROGRAM: Post saw a large amount
of summer work and travel applicants. Now that all SWT applicants
should have returned to their studies, we have begun to put
together a validation study of those students who participated in
the SWT program. Post also plans to prepare a cable regarding the
SWT validation results as well as the increasing problem of
recruiter fees for the SWT applicants. Plans for future outreach
are proposed in order to streamline this group of applicants, some
of whom are improperly recruited by H2B agents.

¶9. (U) H-1B PETITION REVOCATIONS: Post has not submitted any
revocation requests during this time period.

¶10. (U) L-1A PETITION REVOCATION: Post has not submitted any
revocation requests during this time period.

——————–
IMMIGRANT VISA FRAUD
——————–

¶11. (U) FPU staff conducted eight field investigations in immigrant
visa cases of which five were determined to be based on a
fraudulent relationship. Two of the Unit’s LES Fraud Investigators
and an entry level officer participated in these trips. The field
trips covered six of Jamaica’s parishes [local administrative unit
equivalent to a U.S. state].

¶12. (U) Kingston has encouraged (but not required) many applicants
in romantic relationship cases (IR1, CR1, K1, K3) who do not
immediately convince the adjudicating officer of the bona fides of
their relationships to bring petitioners to their follow-up
interviews. The higher percentage of petitioners present at
follow-up interviews has improved the officers’ ability to detect
relationship fraud. Also, FPU’s LES investigators have conducted
more split interviews of the petitioner and applicant in recent
months, applying their wealth of local knowledge and years of
experience to garner more confessions of relationship fraud and
saving adjudicating officers interview time. These successful
split interviews also save FPU time and resources by reducing the
number of local field investigations required to complete fraud
reviews of questionable immigrant visa cases.

——–
DV FRAUD
——–

¶13. (U) Jamaicans are not eligible to participate in the DV
program. Kingston processes only a minuscule number of cases for
applicants from other countries.

——————————————–
AMERICAN CITIZEN SERVICES AND PASSPORT FRAUD
——————————————–

¶14. (SBU) U.S. PASSPORT FRAUD: On September 2, a Jamaican
immigration official brought an altered birth certificate and two
U.S. passports to the Embassy in connection with an ongoing case.
The passports belonged to AMCIT Joy Marie Jeffrey and her alleged
son Uckello Akhtar. Uckello Akhtar and his biological mother,
Natalee Edwards, were issued nonimmigrant visas in 2007 and
traveled to the United States in 2007. In support of a jointly
filed petition for Alein relative (Form I-130) and an Application
for Adjustment of Status (I-485), Ms. Jeffrey presented an altered
birth certificate listing her as Uckello’s mother. He was issued a
U.S. passport in 2008. Ms. Jeffrey then returned to Jamaica and
filed for unconditional stay for Uckello using his U.S. passport,
however, this claim was denied because Ms. Jeffrey presented the
same altered birth certificate. Ms. Jeffrey was charged by the
Jamaican police with altering/forging an official document and
presenting an altered document; she pled guilty and paid a fine on
September 4, 2009. Post continues to work with CA/OCS/PRI on this
case.

————–
ADOPTION FRAUD
————–

¶15. (U) FPU has begun working with Kingston’s USCIS in the
processing of adoption cases. If the adoption case is not clearly
approvable, the IV unit now refers the case to USCIS for further
investigation. FPU continues to investigate suspect IR2 cases
based on an adoption. Post continues to see a significant number
of adoption cases where the applicant was adopted close to his/her
sixteenth birthday. Jamaica has a tradition of informal adoptions,
which makes it difficult for Jamaican applicants to establish their
eligibility as orphans under U.S. immigration law. However, the
applicant’s prospective parents may still successfully adopt the
child pursuant to Jamaican family law and procedures.

——————
USE OF DNA TESTING
——————

¶16. (U) Kingston often requests applicants to undergo DNA testing
because their father’s name is either not on the birth certificate
at all, or was added many years after their birth. In many cases,
these fathers have never lived with their children or played a role
in their lives until they go to immigrate. Approximately 10
percent of all cases where DNA is done resulted in no biological
relationship. This percentage does not include those applicants
that choose to abandon their case rather than undergo DNA testing.
FP is currently working with the Immigrant Visa Unit to update its
DNA procedures as a result of the processing changes.

———————————–
ASYLUM AND OTHER DHS BENEFITS FRAUD
———————————–

¶17. (U) Post’s DHS/USCIS Officer-in-Charge reported no asylum cases
for the period of March 2009 – August 2009.

——————————
ALIEN SMUGGLING, TRAFFICKING,
—————————–
———————————
ORGANIZED CRIME, TERRORIST TRAVEL
———————————

¶18. (SBU) FPU continues to work closely with law enforcement
counterparts within the embassy and maintain a monthly
collaboration meeting to foster greater information sharing.
Organized crime and terrorist travel are addressed in conjunction
with several law enforcement agencies at post and include FPU and
ARSO-I on issues as they arise. Of particular interest was the
arrest of Stephen Fray, the Jamaican who attempted to hijack a
Canadian airliner at Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport
on April 19. We actively collect data from the U.S. law
enforcement agencies at post (U.S. Marshals, DEA, ICE and the
Jamaican authorities through NAS) to create new CLASS entries on
persons extradited to the United States; deported back to Jamaica
from the United States; apprehended by ICE in the United States;
and arrested in Jamaica for offenses here. We also actively comb
the Jamaican news media to create CLASS entries or supplement
existing ones. From March-August 2009, FPU has added 2,555 entries
to CLASS. Another FPU initiative is the compilation of data on
applicants who are confirmed dead for cancellation of their NIVs.
This is being done to prevent travelers from impersonating dead
applicants.

——————————–
DS CRIMINAL FRAUD INVESTIGATIONS
——————————–

¶19. (SBU) In addition to supporting DS, ICE and the U.S. Attorney
in the Robinson/Gordon prosecution, Kingston FPU and RSO
coordinated efforts to arrest a former visa applicant (Courtney
Rhoden) who picked up the visa and passport of an applicant (Omain
Harriott)by presenting a letter to DHL (our courier passback
contractor)stating that he had been given authorization to pick up
the passport. When Mr. Harriott went to DHL to pick up his
passport, he learned that it had been already picked up by Mr.
Rhoden, whom he does not know. DHL representatives came to the
embassy and discussed how to tighten the procedures so that this
would never happen again. RSO notified Jamaican police who then
arrested the Mr. Rhoden.

¶20. (SBU) FPU revoked the visa of a contact of the
Political/Economic Section (Ms. Karen Cross)who used her
relationship with Post to assist unqualified applicants procure
visas through the referral system. Ms. Cross requested that the P/E
Section process referrals on behalf of otherwise unqualified
applicants under the pretext that they were meeting with a
congressman in the United States. Analysis shows that the
applicants did not follow a set schedule and did not travel as a
delegation. At least one applicant has attempted to adjust status
in the United States and DHS has not recorded a return trip for
three of the other applicants.

—————————————–
HOST COUNTRY PASSPORT, IDENTITY DOCUMENTS,
—————————————–
——————
AND CIVIL REGISTRY
——————

¶21. (U) Document forgers, corrupt government officials and poor law
enforcement assist alien smuggling rings operating in the country.
The incidence of suspected fraud in many government agencies is
high. The Jamaican government (GOJ) has issued a secure passport,
but issuance procedures are poor and a new identity complete with a
GOJ issued passport continues to be easy to obtain, once the
individual provides a birth certificate and a photographic
identification.

——————————————–
COOPERATION WITH HOST GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES
——————————————–

¶22. (U) FPU continues to have a positive working relationship with
the Jamaican Registrar General’s Department (RGD) verifying civil
documents. All cases involving altered RGD documents continue to
be referred to the RGD’s fraud department, regardless of whether
the fraud would result in potential visa ineligibilities. This new
system allows the RGD to attempt to pinpoint the sources of these
fraudulent documents, thereby resulting in the arrests of the
responsible individuals.

¶23. (U) FPU continued our public outreach efforts with airlines and
immigration officers training in May and trained 108 participants.
In June, FPU coordinated with a Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
team to train approximately 104 airline representatives on the
detection of fraudulent documents, facial recognition and U.S.
travel document requirements.

——————————-
COOPERATION WITH OTHER MISSIONS
——————————-

¶24. (SBU) Cooperation with our colleagues at the British and
Canadian High Commissions is one of FPU’s highest priorities. All
three Missions face common fraud threats, so it is clear that we
can each target fraud more effectively through communication and
information sharing. FPU attended a conference at the British High
Commission with fraud officers from the French and Germany
Embassies, and from the British and Canadian High Commissions. The
conference focused on information sharing and fraud trends. The
British High Commission presented an overview of the Third Country
Nationals that they are seeing in Jamaica as well as their risk
profiling system (similar to our validation studies). They also
shared with the group a new fraud ring involving informal importers
(“higglers”;) with travel to China who are actually smuggling drugs.
FPU collaborative efforts with the Canadian High Commission
resulted in misrepresentation by this NIV applicant, whose Canadian
was altered and security feature of this visa intercepted by
Canadian authorities in the passport of another traveler.
—————————
AREAS OF PARTICULAR CONCERN
—————————
¶25. (SBU) As a result of the economic downturn, post has witnessed
increasing H2B petitioner malfeasance cases. In particular we have
seen several illegal visa swapping schemes in which a company that
has a valid petition sells some slots to a company that does not.
We have also seen petitioners submitting petitions for jobs in the
United States to which the presumed employer did not enter into an
agreement with the petitioner and does not have available jobs or
submitting a petition that ends within three months of the visa
issuance, while promising applicants they will file an extension on
their behalf for a fee. FPU is also involved in checking for
fraudulent MRV receipts from Paymaster, Kingston’s previous
off-site fee collection agent.

—————————-
STAFFING AND TRAINING ISSUES
—————————-

¶26. (U) The Fraud Prevention Operations Officer position has been
filled by Kristina Hayden, replacing Katherine Rafaniello who
rotated back to NIV in September. Melissa Bishop remains as the
Fraud Prevention Manager, in addition to her duties as the Deputy
Chief of the Visa Unit, with primary responsibility for NIV
operations. David Rainsberger joined FPU as the new Assistant
RSO-I, replacing Vaughn Mosely. The newly created FSN 08 position
was filled and the newly created FSN-09 position should be filled
shortly.
Kingston hosted Ms. Sharon Smith, FSN from Hamilton,
Bermuda for a week (May 11-15). Ms. Smith observed our LES and
officers, specifically reviewing our IV split interview procedures
and incorporated what she learned here in Hamilton’s FP operations.
Kingston’s FPU is awaiting construction of its new more private and
more secure office suite in an area of the Consular Section that
was erroneously designated for GSO storage from the time Post
occupied its New Embassy Compound in December 2006.

I wouldnt say Mavado salt ..thediff wid him and regular peoplr so to speak is his fame hence the scrutiny and ehywe even talkin bout him now..this reinberger fellow neva help him case either cause like those who help out a ting bfore him ..him shoulda lay low.

  • Foxy Lady says:

    Yes true Candy. You have to have a degree to be employed in that position so his at least 4 years of college gone down the drain cos now that he’s a convicted felon, he’s unemployable, disgraced and white women nuh stick through rough times like many black women. As long as the situation is no longer beneficial, them call it quits and I’m sure his Jamaican chick ain’t gonna wait it out for him either especially when he’s no longer a successful American consulate.
    Him young like you said and never foresee the consequences. Like you said, Movado lost his visa in a high profile way so there is no way it could have been reinstated without going through the proper channels and to make matters worse, him mek a wrong move when him revoke the policeman visa. Him overstep him bounds right there as him a play judge and jury and a execute personal vendetta on Movado’s behalf.
    A better dem di fire him and revoke Movado visa cos Vado can mek money many other countries but him wid the felony done fah.

  • Observer says:

    true candy mi nuh really tink a saltniss caw membah seh dem did a probe em section caw em did assign to di fraud unit

As my jewish fren seh they rarely divorce but mi tink em fi get a divorce unda di circumstances caw em run guh all propose to dis con artist a ja

  • eyecandy says:

    obsy how yuh know ah con artiste :dp

    bwooy foxy ah hope him life nuh dun fah..I dont know..

    sumin wrong ..how could he not know they would find out?!?!?

  • Observer says:

    candy ooman juss wah reach a farrin n duh road like mofrado

  • Foxy Lady says:

    Candy, remember sey visa a sell a embassy long time enuh, and I’m certain Movado wasn’t the first or last person that got on his behalf. When you’ve been doing something for a while and getting away with it, you take it for granted and don’t see yourself getting caught. When people do wrongs, they tend to convince themselves that they are one step ahead and extremely clever. Being that he was head of his department, he didn’t really have much in the way of hindrance as what he was doing was still within in normal scope of responsibilities. Him just never know sey him trigger di alarm fi bigger heads. And as the story unfolds, my best guess is that his bad move came when he revoked the visa and the man subsequently appealed the decision and then the investigation started.

    Now that just mek it bad fi everybody wey coulda did buy a visa cos the next people that come after nah guh do it knowing seh the last person gone a prison.

    And Candy, I asked you if you know him personally? I’m not familiar with these people beyond mere names, I don’t know one song the guy sings but I’m beginning to wonder what’s your relation to him so please put my curiosity to rest cos mi neva si yuh cuss out nuh blogger before and this seem personal for you.

    ¶14. (SBU) U.S. PASSPORT FRAUD: On September 2, a Jamaican
    immigration official brought an altered birth certificate and two
    U.S. passports to the Embassy in connection with an ongoing case.
    The passports belonged to AMCIT Joy Marie Jeffrey and her alleged
    son Uckello Akhtar. Uckello Akhtar and his biological mother,
    Natalee Edwards, were issued nonimmigrant visas in 2007 and
    traveled to the United States in 2007. In support of a jointly
    filed petition for Alein relative (Form I-130) and an Application
    for Adjustment of Status (I-485), Ms. Jeffrey presented an altered
    birth certificate listing her as Uckello’s mother. He was issued a
    U.S. passport in 2008. Ms. Jeffrey then returned to Jamaica and
    filed for unconditional stay for Uckello using his U.S. passport,
    however, this claim was denied because Ms. Jeffrey presented the
    same altered birth certificate. Ms. Jeffrey was charged by the
    Jamaican police with altering/forging an official document and
    presenting an altered document; she pled guilty and paid a fine on
    September 4, 2009. Post continues to work with CA/OCS/PRI on this
    case.

  • Belly Bang says:

    The United States Embassy in Kingston has responded to reports that one of its former employees has pleaded guilty to accepting bribes in exchange for helping a Jamaican musician gain a visa to enter the US.

    Thirty-two-year old David Rainsberger pleaded guilty on Wednesday in federal court in Alexandria.

    In a release this morning, the US Embassy said neither it nor the Department of State would comment on the personnel actions related to the case.

    It also declined to say whether any actions would be taken against the entertainer.

    But it sought to make it clear that the government of the United States of America takes its anti-corruption mandates seriously and that not even embassy officials are above the law.

  • Anonymous says:

    After all of this they will be calling Malvado the “Gully Rat” or “Gully Ratata”!!!

  • Belly Bang says:

    Ok, call it professional speculation, but RJR interviewed an attorney who said that based on how the case was handled, cooperation from DB was highly likely as the authorities appeared to be more interested in the big fish, and that criminal prosecution of the entertainer appeared to be unlikely based on:-

    1. the use of initials – as in the case of cooperating witnesses who they are trying to protect
    2. that the entertainer was not arrested
    3. substantive details of the case were released already

    This was on RJR 5 o’clock news a while ago.

    So if no criminal prosecution, are they going to take administrative action, that was left unsaid.

  • Met says:

    Ok thank you @Met i see it now

  • realthing says:

    so mofraudo “cooperate” (inna me best mob wives voice).

    read this from the cable met post

    FPU revoked the visa of a contact of the
    Political/Economic Section (Ms. Karen Cross)who used her
    relationship with Post to assist unqualified applicants procure
    visas through the referral system. Ms. Cross requested that the P/E
    Section process referrals on behalf of otherwise unqualified
    applicants under the pretext that they were meeting with a
    congressman in the United States. Analysis shows that the
    applicants did not follow a set schedule and did not travel as a
    delegation.**** At least one applicant has** attempted** to adjust status
    in the United States*** and DHS has not recorded a return trip for
    three of the other applicants.

    so dat means as long as u obtain the visa fraudulently, dem nah go gi u nuh greencard

  • Met says:

    real think someone jus link mi bout it……………. and if mi start talk it nah go nice but dem fi memba God

    From day one, I told you guys that there is more to this whole thing than meets the eyes. Mi ask you all how you all sure it wasn’t the Gully Rat that was spilling a lot of the beans why so much info is available, you all disagree.

    Up till now, no one is wondering why a US Embassy fraud investigator was querying certain confidential database which is beyond his scope of work. What information was he looking for and who was he passing the information to and was his person just an intermediary.

    The US will not divulge are the relevant details of the case and was glad to cut a plead deal with Rainsberger so that certain information doesn’t get into the public domain, which will eventually embarass the State Department. They probably seal that case file, since I was unable to find the original indictment online.

    Now we have some person name Ted come drop Hunk A gold into the mix, a low lfe murderer/gang leader/most wanted, who when killed, his gun was linked to over 10 murders. How the hell this person involve?

    Eyecandy from Tupac died mi nuh listen rap/hip hop and reggae only if they play on Y100 like Sean Paul, Shaggy, etc.
    I listen rock, pop, alternative. After the whole Kartel saga I got 2 of his CD’s to check out what he was about and though I can see why he contributed to the mental deterioration and leading astray of the youths, his songs had me whining up miself. I think he’s talented, just wish he had put it to better use in a positive way. I never really had any reason to listen to Vado except just the other day my friend was in the studio with him and was telling me how charming he is and I was shocked because she’s an uptown girl. I could never imagine him as her type in a million years and she laughed and said yea, him aura strong in a sexy way, so I decided I would check out his songs but I haven’t got a chance to.
    Dancehall doesn’t do anything for me, I find most of it ignorant and elementary. On a Sunday evening I want my Beres, Bob and John Holt but outside of that, I can’t tell you anything about the music since the 90’s.

    Met, I left and got back and I’m confused with the twist the story has taken. Anonymous dropping hints that confuse the heck outta me and the gunman’s name and snitching. Can you bring me up to speed with what has transpired so far.

    Is it Movado that sold out Riceberger?

  • Met says:

    No foxy…based on how the us works…they already reached out to him after they got riceberger………….and people on the streets were saying he gave up busy because at this point the us would have taken action and would not have aired the details of the case if it was unfinished

  • Foxy Lady says:

    Oh okay…….but just on mere speculation the Busy time would just about coincide with Riceberger arrest, so that would very well fall within the realm of possibility.

    A God deh pon busy side why him only get 6 months cos he could possibly have been facing a lengthy sentence. People will do anything fi save dem ass, nuh matter how dem act and talk hard when it comes down to doing time, every man fi dem self.
