Federal Officials announced on Tuesday that they have busted and immigration fraud ring based out of Bucks County.

The U.S. Attorney charged six people with trying to get hundreds of immigrants legal status based on bogus claims.

David Linn, 33, reportedly posed a lawyer and charged immigrants $8,000 a piece and sometimes $12,000 for families on the guarantee he could grant them asylum; however, the asylum applications were filled with false claims.

Federal officials said the group made around $3 million telling asylum seekers how to lie to immigration officials.

Half a million dollars and two gold bars were seized from beneath the floor of David Linn's Bucks County home.

"This fraud was about nothing more than money. Their most important job was to coach illegal immigrants on how to lie," said acting U.S. Attorney, Laurie Magid.
