According to OMARA: it received 6 complaints against RMA, some of which alleged she failed to pass on tuition fees received from clients to schools; RMA claimed her employee, whom she sponsored on a 457 visa and was an Education Agent (EA), fraudulently received client payments to EA's personal bank account. Questions to OMARA: did RMA coerce EA; did RMA use her position as an employer / sponsor in a manner unbecoming of an RMA; did RMA fail to properly supervise EA? Further, OMARA used IP addresses to determine whether EA had lodged visa applications on RMA's behalf.
