Ref: Lima 2271



1. (U) Post submitted reftel reporting on mala fide
applicants who obtained non-immigrant visas by faking a
medical handicap. Applicants had appeared at the Embassy
with one eye glued shut to simulate a vision problem
requiring medical attention in the United States. The
applicants paid visa fixers up to USD 5,000. The fixers
fabricated medical certifications, which were then used to
obtain legitimate documentation certifying that the person
was handicapped.



2. (U) Internal auditors working at the Peruvian Ministry of
Women and Social Development detected the scheme and
contacted Post's Fraud Prevention Unit. FPU, working with
RSO and the Peruvian National Police, interviewed applicants
with pending visa applications. These applicants were
subsequently arrested by the PNP, as were the visa fixers.
Of the 11 fraudulent visa applicants (since May 2004) that
FPU has identified, six visas had been issued.



3. (SBU) Post requests Department assistance to revoke visas
issued to the following applicants under 212(a)(6)(C) since
the misrepresentation was material to visa issuance. The
children no longer overcome 214(B).
