A copy of the indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Massachusetts alleges that Singer,
“Parents generally paid Singer between $15,000 and $75,000 per test,” according to the indictment, which says the payments were purported donations to the KWF. Singer also allegedly coached parents in claiming their children had learning disabilities, which meant the ACT Inc. and the College Board would grant them extended time to take the tests.
The fake applications were submitted to major colleges and universities such as USC, UCLA, USD, Stanford, Georgetown University, Yale University and Wake Forest University. The indictment alleges that bribes were accepted by employees of those schools. For example, the suit claims that Singer directed payments of $350,000 to a private soccer club controlled by Ali Khosroshahin, USC’s women’s soccer coach, and Laura Janke, USC’s assistant women’s soccer coach. They allegedly created fake athletic profiles for applicants seeking admission as athletes. All in all, the suit claims “parents paid Singer approximately $25 million over the period 2011 through February 2019 to bribe coaches and university administrators to designate their children as recruited athletes, or other favored admissions categories…” One parent is said to have paid $1.2 million to get Singer’s help in enrolling his child in college.
