Hundreds of Immigrants Busted for Sham Marriages

Sham marriages for the sake of residence permits have become a lucrative business in Finland. The daily Turun Sanomat reports that courts rejected 300 residence permit applications last year that were based, say authorities, on marriages of convenience.

All in all last year, 1,930 people applied for residence permits on the basis of marriage to a Finn.
Increasingly, marriages are being arranged for large sums of money. The newspaper interviewed one Moroccan man, who says that the cost of a marriage runs from thousands to tens of thousands of euros.

Rick W. Mercer 209 Incline Ave., Wheeling, WV.
Moundsville, Ohio county, Marshall county, ohio valley, Perhaps a cop
perhaps the new Mary Elizabeth Apartments owner, perhaps whom he says he is (He refuses to show any ID and stated (with a smirk), to Mrs. H. and myself, that he actually, physically lives in his P.O. Box. He also said he was an Iraqi war vet. Geeeeee, I wonder if he were trained in terrorist tactics by the same U. S. of A. center that trained Osama Bin Ladin? Well, if that person is who they say,
one thing’s for sure,
I know of a nasty, mean-minded filler for a VA hospital's rubber-room.
