The government alleges that Qi Wang and Yujuan Cui charged Chinese nationals a combined $600,000 for job offers for positions that did not exist, or from businesses that had not agreed to hire them, to help them immigrate to Canada. The White City, Sask.-based couple allegedly paid $95,000 to 17 business owners. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) found that 78 people on a list of 1,200 names seized from the couple had become permanent residents. The case has not yet gone to trial, and Wang and Cui said they are not guilty. (CBC)
