When a Brisbane-based international student who was studying Master of Creative Industries at QUT purchased a $2.6 million home, authorities became suspicious of her intentions and motives for studying in Australia.
Thai Ngoc Han Do is being investigated by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) due to her unusual behaviour of transferring large sums of money between over thirty different bank accounts that she set up.
International students whom have been successfully granted a visa to study in Australia have a number of regulations they need to adhere to when it comes to living and working in Australia whilst studying. With the number of applications growing every year for international students to study in Australia, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection is paying close attention to applicants who may be involved in activities of question.
Ms Han Do has had all of her assests frozen as the investigations continue.
