Emory is not the only school that was allegedly duped by Woods. The University of Missouri “and other victims” paid Woods’ companies to book artists for concerts and festivals, the Justice Department said.
Woods received $66,250 in total for the fake bookings, a federal indictment says. That means Emory's $37,500 payment accounted for more than half of Woods' money. The U.S. Department of Education is also investigating the case.
Once Woods’ companies received the money, Woods would launder the funds by transferring them to other accounts and withdrawing them as cash, the Justice Department said.
Woods has pleaded not guilty and posted $10,000 bond on Feb. 13.
