A green card scammer had his plans foiled when an immigration agent viewed the cell phone of the woman that claimed to be his wife, and a text came in.
The text was from another man, who thanked the so-called wife for the “best sex ever!”
The American woman who told immigration authorities that she was the wife of the Liberian man trying to stay in the United States through their fake marriage admitted to the scam and was granted immunity for testifying against the man, named Prince Mark Boley
However, Boley is now facing up to 5 years of jail and a $250K fine for lying to immigration authorities!
Take a look at news of this very ill-timed (or convenient, depending on how you look at it) text message that incriminated the fraudulent “immigrant” on Twitter:
Fox News has more details on the scam and how the man was caught for marriage fraud:
A Liberian soccer player’s attempt to trick U.S. immigration authorities into giving him a green card backfired after an agent in Rhode Island viewing the phone of the woman claiming to be his wife saw an incoming message from another person thanking her for the “best sex ever,” prosecutors say.
Prince Mark Boley, 30, is now facing up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine after being convicted by a federal court this week of lying to immigration officials and providing false information on immigration documents, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the District of Rhode Island announced.
The steamy text that sparked an investigation into his behavior came in June 2017, when authorities were questioning the validity of his marriage to a U.S. citizen that occurred a year earlier, the office said. Boley was seeking a green card and the woman he claimed to be his wife allowed an immigration officer to review her phone in hopes to make clear that the two truly were in love.
Although they weren’t, prosecutors say.
While the officer was going through messages on her device, a new one popped up – from “Chriss”, complimenting her for the “best sex ever”, the Providence Journal reported.
The woman – who was granted immunity in exchange for testifying against Boley -- then “admitted to the agent to recently having had sex with that individual,” the office said.
ABC News also gave this information on the man's trial:
A former pro soccer player from Liberia has been convicted of lying about his marriage to a Rhode Island woman in order to gain permanent legal residency in the U.S.
Authorities started investigating after a U.S immigration official examining a phone belonging to the man's wife saw a text from another man indicating they had had sex.
Federal prosecutors say 30-year-old Prince Mark Boley was convicted Thursday of presentation of a perjured immigration document and false statements.
A mistrial on a marriage fraud charge was declared because the jury couldn't reach a verdict.
