Montebello Woman Charged In Massive Immigration Services Fraud Scheme Again
A Montebello woman is being accused of running a fraudulent immigration services business from her home. The suspect is denying 48 felony charges filed against her after prosecutors reported that she had billed more than two dozen victims for more than $200,000. She was convicted of providing bogus immigration services in a similar, but larger scam in 2009. Shortly after serving her time for the first case of fraud, Romina Aida Zadorian returned to her scam and is being accused of running the same fraudulent business. She entered her not guilty response Friday afternoon in the Los Angeles Superior Court. She is being charged with 29 counts of grand theft of personal property, six counts of forgery involving more than $950, three counts of false government document activity, three counts of criminal threats, three counts of extortion, two counts of residential burglary, one count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime, and one count of petty theft with three prior convictions for the same crime.
