Mexican actress busted for GC fraud

19 posts in this topic

Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- A well-known Mexican soap opera star and her American husband face federal charges of entering a sham marriage so she could get legal residency in the United States.

The government said the fake marriage was exposed when a jilted boyfriend, fashion photographer Markus Klinko, called the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

"This actor should have realized that posing as a bride for immigration purposes could land her a role in a real-life crime drama," Special Agent Miguel Unzueta said.

The 28-year-old Romero appeared in at least 15 television shows and films since 2005, according to the Internet Movie Database, when prosecutors allege she paid Kent Ross, a pizza delivery man and musician, to marry her.

Romero appeared before a U.S. magistrate on Friday and was released on a $50,000 signature bond. She was ordered to surrender her passport and not to leave Southern California. Her activities will be monitored electronically.

The prosecutor in the case, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Left, said Romero could get between 15 and 21 months in prison if convicted, though such cases usually produce shorter sentences.

Ross appeared before a U.S. magistrate on Friday and was released on $25,000 bond.

The case is unusual because marriage fraud charges are usually litigated by immigration authorities rather than prosecuted as criminal cases.

Too bad for her if that were true and she'd be proven guilty.

Mexican soap operas are still played in the Philippines. I've never heard of Fernanda Romero. Thalia was very famous and she'd always be remembered.

Disclaimer: I don't like soap operas but I am much of an observant when it comes to other people's tastes.

There is something wrong with that picture. Specifically her mid section. Looks edited.

Did you mean Thalia or Fernanda?

Thalia has really slim waistline. She went to the Philippines more than a decade ago when her soaps were very popular. More photos below.

Oh, no man. I was just trying to be informative. I must have done enough. :P

I think what TBone was trying to say is that we're very slow learners, and need more lessons until we've properly absorbed the material. :innocent:
