Who would have ever3 thought Aunt Becky was a scammer?!
Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are cased up and trending all over social media for all of the wrong reasons!
The actresses are among a slew of people were busted in a widespread college admissions scam where they allegedly paid hefty bribes to get their kids into top universities.
Via NY Post:
More than 40 people have been indicted in the scheme that allegedly involved students gaining entrance to schools including Georgetown, Stanford, Wake Forest University, UCLA and Yale as recruited athletes — regardless of their athletic ability.
Federal prosecutors in Boston say parents paid an admissions consultant $25 million from 2011 through February 2019 to bribe the coaches and administrators in order to help their kids get accepted.
The California man is accused of steering that money to either an SAT or ACT administrator to help the students get admitted.
Bogus athletic profiles were made to look as though the students were qualified athletes in order to boost the kids’ chances of getting in — when they actually weren’t involved in sports.
Huffman, who starred in “Desperate Housewives” and Loughlin, who many of us have come to know and love as “Aunt Becky on “Full House,” are now facing charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
#AuntBecky is now trending on Twitter as people react to the news of the scam.
Peep the tweets below.
