Answered your additional questions Awaiting your answers so i can get help thank you lee horowitz
Well, I don’t think that ICE will get involved because they are just involved in removal proceedings. If you just want the information from them, you can fill out a Freedom Of Information Act request and that you can find out about here:
Look under where is says FOIA.
As far as what else you can do, well, if both persons are outside of the U.S., there isn’t much you can do except contact the authorities like maybe the FBI:
Or the local authorizes where those persons supposedly live. I am truly sorry. I wish there was more that I can tell you. The FBI may be able to do something against the father if it can be proven that it really is a scam and not just a bad business decision and that he was involved in the scam.
