Adoption scam

The Utah based adoption agency “Focus on Children” is at the center of an adoption scam investigation. 

A 135-count indictment unsealed last Thursday accuses Focus on Children and seven of its operators of lying to both birth parents and prospective adoptive parents.

“The defendants allegedly told Samoan residents that their children would be temporarily placed in the United States to be educated and would return when they reached adulthood. The parents in the United States allegedly were told that the children were orphans and that the placements were permanent.”
