On Tuesday in New York, 19-year-old college student Sam Eshaghoff was arrested and charged for committing fraud. Eshaghoff was caught charging six high school students a large amount of money for taking the SAT for them.
Eshaghoff, a “second year student at Emory University” demanded fees of up to $2,500 for the service of taking tests for the high school students. This was not his first time doing so though. The college student was caught after the high school, Great Neck North, considered to have great prestige, heard rumors of students cheating on the exam.
After reviewing records, administrators of Great Neck North found discrepancies between the six students’ test scores and their academic performance. Eshaghoff could face up to four years in jail. The six high school students were arrested on misdemeanor charges.
