Ever heard of FastTrain College? Yeah, neither have I, but apparently this “higher educational institution” based in Miami hustled the U.S. Department of Education out of millions of dollars. Additionally, the school lured kids–who I’m sure are the most elite student prospects in the fucking world–to enroll at the school…by using pole-dancing ladies of the night.
From Fox News:
The Florida Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney in Miami announced Wednesday that they were joining an ongoing civil lawsuit against FastTrain College and former owner 56-year-old Alejandro Amor.
The complaint says that from at least January 2009 through June 2012, FastTrain and Amor bilked the U.S. Department of Education out of millions of dollars with falsified grant applications. The complaint says strippers on at least one campus tried to draw young male students.
First off, let’s start with the school’s name. “FastTrain” is so blatantly obvious and in your face screaming “scam” that you just have to respect the sheer audacity of the person that picked this name. The fact that this school didn’t get the kibosh with the first form it sent into the Department of Education is astonishing in its own right, but the fact that it expanded to seven campuses and operated like a well-oiled machine for several years is fucking mind blowing.
The site has clearly been taken down at this point, so you can only imagine the gold provided by its .edu. The school’s Facebook, however, is still running strong.
Nothing assures me that something is legitimate quite like 21 Facebook likes. Look, it even has some informational graphics:
And if those don’t have you sold on FastTrain, Mercedes and Jade from admissions surely will.
“If you could follow me this way, Mr. Hammer, we’ll sign your letter of intent in the champagne room.”
Strippers, fraudulent schemes fucking the government out of millions, and living in Miami: Alejandro Amor, you cheeky bastard, you’re a mastermind of the hustle craft. Hope those few years of moneymaking bliss were worth the ass-pounding you’re about to take in federal prison..
