Miami - Prosecutors say a for-profit Florida college used exotic dancers as admissions officers, falsified documents and coached students to lie on financial forms as it fraudulently obtained millions of dollars in federal money.

The Florida Attorney General and the US Attorney in Miami announced on Wednesday that they were joining an ongoing civil lawsuit against FastTrain College and former owner 56-year-old Alejandro Amor.

FastTrain is now defunct. It operated seven Florida campuses and was based in Miami.

The complaint says that from at least January 2009 through June 2012, FastTrain and Amor bilked the US Department of Education out of millions of dollars with falsified grant applications.

The complaint says strippers on at least one campus tried to draw young male students.

Amor was charged criminally in October.
