From the NY Post:
A slew of Russian immigrants are entering sham marriages in the States to obtain green cards -- and they're doing it in plain sight.
The Russian Advertiser, a Russian-language weekly, has an entire classified-ad section devoted to "delovoy brak," or "business marriages." Last week's issue had 34 ads from women and men hoping to come together in unholy matrimony.
One Sheepshead Bay man said he gets offers all the time from marriage brokers.
He said he knows half a dozen men who married young Russian and Polish women for cash.
A federal law-enforcement source agreed that it's a common practice in certain Eastern European and Russian immigrant neighborhoods.
