Raina Massey, the head of Newark-based Care Worldwide Inc., has been charged with wire fraud, visa fraud and identity theft after she allegedly conducted a multifaceted illegal immigration scheme from February 2012 to March 2015. Massey has pled not guilty to the charges.

Massey sought foreign individuals to allegedly work on H-1B visas in clinical research jobs for Care Worldwide, however, the company was just a shell operation, and the jobs advertised by Massey didn't exist.

Several sets of victims were purportedly impacted by the scheme. One group of victims allegedly took part in "benching," in which Massey falsely indicated the victims would have technical positions waiting for them. Due to “technical problems”, Massey assigned them to menial tasks, such as handing out fliers on street corners. For other victims, Massey never applied for H-1B visas but still took illegal payments from them.

Each wire fraud count has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, while the visa fraud count has a top penalty of 10 years. Massey’s arrest comes after an Administrative Law Judge for the U.S. Department of Labor ordered Care Worldwide to pay $291,708 to two H-1B employees after finding that the company and its president “benched” both of the workers.
