BROOKLYN - New York's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says a network of fake nursing schools in Brooklyn and Long Island ripped off hundreds of students.

Prosecutors say the schools were not accredited and provided unknowing students with bogus certificates. Students paid anywhere from $7,000 to $20,000 and spent up to two years in school completing the program.

At least eight people have been arrested and accused of participating in the scam.
