NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Brooklyn English schools operated by a married couple were nothing more than a front to scam immigrants out of thousands of dollars, prosecutors say.
Jade Wang told CBS 2’s John Slattery that she paid in advance to have her children attend an English as a Second Language school in the Chinese enclave of Sunset Park. She said her kids were among about 100 who showed up for classes at the three Chinatown Outreach Ministry schools, only to find the places locked.
“It was too sudden,” Wang said through an interpreter. “And I was pretty angry.”
