Pradyumna Kumar Samal, the CEO of two US tech firms, was this month jailed for seven years for what prosecutors called “the largest and most sophisticated H-1B scheme ever prosecuted” in Seattle.

Samal pleaded guilty to defrauding the US government by lying on visa applications and failing to pay over $1m in employment taxes. His scheme involved hundreds of foreign nationals, the majority from India, that he charged $5,000 to get into the United States on H-1B technology worker visas – a fee that his companies Divensi and Azimetry are legally obliged to pay under the visa system.
