HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The owner of a Beaufort County immigration services business has been charged with scamming customers out of thousands of dollars.
Authorities say Michael Wyman was arrested Tuesday and charged with 10 counts of breach of trust with fraudulent intent.
Wyman opened a business called Immigration Angels in March, advertising "full service" immigration assistance. But investigators say Wyman's customers reported that he took their money but never provided services for which they had paid.
So far, 10 potential victims have been identified, but authorities say they seized hundreds of files from Wyman's office.
It wasn't known if Wyman had an attorney. Wyman is a former lawyer who was disbarred in 2002 for embezzling nearly $700,000 from a couple during a real estate deal.
