Report from the Morgan Hill Times:
Morgan Hill - The identity of a man found dead in a
motel room the afternoon of Sept. 29 has been confirmed, according to
the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office.
Inkyo Volt Hwang, 38, was found in his room at the Economy Inn on
Monterey Road after the manager of the motel was unable to get a
response from him.
Hwang, who was found half-in and half-out of his bed, is believed to be
a resident of Gardena, in Southern California. His death is not being
considered suspicious by police. The cause of his death will not be
released until the toxicology report is completed.
Hwang was "implicated" in the death of his girlfriend in King City this
summer, according to King City police Sgt. Steve Miller. He would not
release the name of the murder victim or other information about the
case because the investigation is ongoing, he said.
Hwang may have been involved in making pornographic movies, according
to Morgan Hill police, and likely was headed north due to the King City
Police suspect Hwang died of a drug overdose.
Everyone in xxx knew Hwang was a drunk but only a few
knew he also did cocaine. The drinking took the edge of the coke
Hwang and Haley enabled each others drug addictions.
If we make an effort to enter a drug-addicted
loved one into alcohol and drug rehab
programs, a drug overdose or other tragic consequences of drug addiction
can be avoided.
Volt Hwang was leaving King City (just south of
Monterey), possibly headed to San Francisco (where there's a big Korean
community) to start a new life. His car (not the missing rental car)
broke down. He got on a bus. He checked into the Economy
Inn (15080 Monterey Road) in Morgan Hill (95037, 30 minutes
south of San Jose) and checked out of life.
He was not on the verge of being arrested by King City.
He was implicated in the death of Maryam Hailey but that does not mean
he caused it. She might have overdosed while he was in the room.
Hwang's death does not end the police investigation into
Fayner posts on lukeford.com:
Seriously, back in the old days, way back like
five years ago, Wanker was a cool guy. He was terrified of girls. He
was a computer geek. He was fun. In doses, that is.
But he also drank. And although no one knew at the
time, he was also a rapist and kidnapper, as well as an abuser towards
women. It wasn't until he again got arrested for the same charges did
we know of his evil past. It's too bad, too, 'cause Haley Paige got the
raw end of the deal in the end.
It's obvious Wanker killed Haley. So obvious, I bet
even he knew that everyone in the Valley knew it, too. I bet a lot of
people would have loved it if he came back to the Valley after news of
Haley's death hit the streets. I guarantee someone would have cracked
his skull open with a pipe...
But instead he most probably killed himself with
On June 29, 2007 Inkyo Volt Hwang was arrested by the
LAPD West Valley Division at 1:15 a.m. on felony charges related to his
pistol-whipping, kidnapping and torturing his fiance Maryam Irene Haley.
On July 3, 2007, Hwang was released from LA County jail.
(In December of 1997, Hwang was sentenced to four years
in state prison for beating, kidnapping and raping his UCLA
girlfriend Helen Na. The two felony convictions were for assault with a
deadly weapon and sexual battery. Hwang served two years and two months
(in Chico, I believe).)
On August 2, 2007, Hwang and Haley married in Las Vegas.
On August 8, 2007, Los Angeles County District
Attorney's office public information officer Sandi Gibbon replied to my
inquiry: "We reviewed the case and on July 3 of this year, declined to
file charges. According to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department jail
records, Mr. Hwang was released from custody on July 3."
During August and September, I wondered on my site about
the whereabouts of Hwang and Haley.
On September 5, I heard several times from an emailer
(who I believe to be a female member of Haley's family who sent in this
Oct. 5): "I'm Sure chico wang knows where haley paige has
been....and if she's okay."
"I see your extremly interested in following wanker wang,
but what about haily paige? I don't see anyone asking where she has
been and if she is even okay....has anyone seen or heard from her."
Haley's father Ken Haley posts
Sept. 16: "Haley Paige passed from this life on August 21, 2007. In the
company of Chico Wang. Who ya gonna blame?"
The news broke on my site Sept. 26 that Haley Paige
might be dead. This was confirmed Oct. 1 (by Charlie at Fox Magazine
through the coroner in Monterey County) -- that she passed away Aug. 21.
On October 1, I first reported my suspicions (and those
of many in the industry) in a headline that Inkyo Volt Hwang murdered
Hailey Page and then killed himself.
On October 7, I reported that Hwang's rental car was

Haley to Sandi Gibbon along with this: "The man the LA DA declined July

City Attorney. He was booked on a misdemeanor charge."

I had an awkward relationship with Hwang. It began in
late August 2002 when I started to write a column for lukeford.com, my
old website. Hwang said he'd let me take over the site. If I was going
to write for it, he didn't want anything to do with it.
Hwang told me about his history in the industry. That he
heard about Rob Black running for mayor of Los Angeles (circa 2000) and
went to Rob for a job. He became an editor and online maven.
Hwang told me he left Extreme Associates because the
place was a moral black hole. There were too many chicks coming in that
he was throat-f---ing.
I ran into Hwang every few months for the next five
years. He was usually loaded. He usually invaded my space, kissed me
and groped me. I hated him but I was in an awkward situation because he
had access to my old domain name.
When Hwang took over lukeford.com, he disabled all my
pictures. He used the site to viciously slam people (usually while
drunk). He repeatedly bashed Chris Alexander of Anabolic for reportedly
A few years later, Chris asked me why I went after him
so much. I didn't know what he was talking about.
A few months later, I realized he'd read Wanker's stuff
on lukeford.com and thought I was responsible.
Friends of Chico have long said he's harmless, a nice
guy, not dangerous, just a loose cannon. He was goofy and off the wall
and liked to get drunk. Sure, he was abusive mentally and verbally, but
he was not a threat to anyone.
The Wanker Wang I knew made frequent and disturbing
references to killing other people and then himself.
I only know of one person in xxx, an enemy of Chico's,
who knew of Hwang's 1997 conviction for assault.
Wanker lived on the edge. As long as he was in xxx, he
was a danger to himself and to others. And there are a lot of people
like him remaining in xxx who would not surprise me if they went out
and murdered someone.

I talk to Rob Spallone by phone Tuesday morning about Wanker
Rob: "He had booked a girl [Cali
Caramel] from me. He shot her with Brian Surewood for two
hours on Tuesday. Then Brian got cuts on his disk. Wanker called up and
said he couldn't finish the scene because she had stitches in her pussy
from when she was raped at five years of age.
"So she told him that she would come back tomorrow with
her boyfriend to do the scene.
"They came back the next day to do the scene. Ten
minutes into it, he said, 'It's too hot. It's not working. Forget it.'
"I call him. I say, 'You've shot the girl twice. Now you
send her home. You can't do that.'
"So he comes to my office. I said, 'I'll book a guy. How
much do you pay?' He said, '$500.' I get him a guy for $300.
"He says, 'Make it for 2 p.m. Thursday. I'll pick the
girl up at 1:30 p.m.'
"I send the guy to the location. At 1:45, the girl
calls. 'He's not here.' She's flipping. 'I'm going to call the police.
I worked. He didn't pay me.'
"I said, 'Calm down. You're not calling no police.'
"The guy shows up to the location. There's this Chinese
kid there who says, 'We're not shooting today.'
"It takes me half an hour to get Wanker on the phone. He
says, 'What's up? I'm in San Diego.'
"He said, 'Ooh, I'm such an airhead. I'll be there at 7
"At 6 p.m., he calls up. 'Make it 9 p.m.'
"At 9 p.m., the talent gets there. He's not there. The
Chinese kid's there. I get him on the phone. 'You tell [Wanker] that
I'll break his neck.'
"I'm screaming. The kid hangs up on me. I call back. The
kid don't answer. I'm screaming [on his voice mail], I'm going to break
his neck and I'm going to break your neck.'
"Wanker calls up ten minutes later. He says, 'I'll be
there in ten minutes, Rob. Make the talent wait.'
"He gets there.
"I'm lying in my bed. It's 10:30 p.m. They're there for
five minutes. He texts me: 'This is not going to work. The guy don't
"I tell him to shoot the scene. He texts three more
times. Leah calls him. He says, 'Tell Rob to come over here.'
"I get in my car. I fly over there. I'm going to break
his neck. I'm going to break his friend's neck.
"It's just him and my two talent. It's working.
"I hang outside for a few minutes. Wanker comes out and
says, 'I need 12 more minutes.'
"I say OK. I leave. I drive four blocks. He calls me and
says, 'This is not going to work.'
"Thursday, he comes to my office. He says, 'Do me a
favor and tell the girl I have her booked for three more scenes but I'm
canceling the check for this one.'
"I have the feeling that he didn't have the money to
shoot it and he was too afraid to say something."
"I like the kid. Every time I see him, he says his
girlfriend is f---ed up. Thursday he said that she's on heroin. He had
a different story every day."
Haley's dad Ken Haley (?) posts July 4, 2007: "Hi Mike!
Hola Jorge! I know you both, don't I? Yes, Haley lived in Chihuahua as
a child. She's a true bicultural product, and I hope she's proud of it.
And I entrusted her to Mike on her year-long journey down under. Then
had to pay for her to come home when she needed to escape. Thanks for
taking such good care of my baby, Mike! How's it going, senorita Haley?
(I'm the most important man in Haley's life, and I hope she reads
this.) Except for the bad story about your uncle, in which you said
your parents looked the other way, you've managed to project your true
sweet nature and loving heart. It's a hell of a shock to see where
you've gone, and though I don't like it, I don't condemn you for it. I
do believe that you could have chosen a more wholesome outlet for your
beauty and talents. I don't think it's too late to redirect your
course. If you need any help or encouragement, you know where to find

Ken Haley posts 23: "So very certain. I'm her father. I
buried her in Brentwood, California on August 30. There seems to be no
word on her or Chico in the blogs. Anyone who knew her, I'd love to
hear good stories of her; bad ones, too, I want to know more about her
life in the last 3 years or so. Her mother and I (we're divorced) did
not know she was in the business until just a few weeks before her
passing. We did not judge her nor condemn her for her chosen path. We
love her deeply, and she knows we do, even in death. And to set the
record straight: she was NOT molested by her uncle. There was an
incident with him, and it ended right there. Her parents did NOT give
her up to a nasty uncle for rent. She was very young at the time. We
lived in Mexico, the uncle lived in California. After the one incident,
we never left her alone with him, and we seldom saw him until he died
of a liver disease. My daughter is indeed as sweet and loving as many
of you say she is."

Del Toro writes June 25, 2006 on his MySpace:
While dating Monika Miklos, for the past several
years, I befriended an American Porn actress named Haley Paige.
The reasons for this sudden romance was because my
student visa expired and I was suddenly an illegal alien in America.
(View my "PICS" to see our authentic marriage certificate).
After dating for a few months, Haley and I married on
October 15th, 2005 in a ceremony attended by my cousin Tibor. The
marriage was set up in 4 hours prior to the ceremony. I moved into
Haley's apartment in North Hollywood the following day. On Thanksgiving
Eve, approximately 5 weeks after our marriage, I left Haley to move in
with my girlfriend Monika Miklos with whom I was living with the entire
time of the fraudulent relationship between Haley and I citing her
addiction to painkillers as the reason. Neither Monika nor Haley knew
of each other at the time. It didn't matter that I knew she was on
painkillers and even providing her with painkillers during the duration
of the relationship.
I informed my wife Haley I would return once she
sobered up and that my drug addiction specialist informed me that drug
users should always be alone in order to successfully conquer their
addiction. I promised to return to the marriage on Christmas Day, 2005,
while Haley was completely sober and to live together. It never
happened. I called a week later citing a trip to Las Vegas with
relatives during the Christmas holidays. During the marriage, I begged
Haley not to let anyone know about the marriage. The reasoning behind
this stemmed from my desire not to have anyone know, especially my
girlfriend at the time. What I told Haley was this ... I want a huge
Satanic wedding, complete with porn paparazzi to be videotaped and sold
as a symbol of our love.
Unfortunately, I never returned to my wife who was
battling addiction alone. I promised I was completely loyal to my wife
Haley and never cheated on her to this point. I promised to move back
in with my wife Haley a week before a scheduled Homeland Security
interview which was conducted on February 14, 2006. Incidentally, it
was Valentine's Day where I would tell every stranger about my glorious
marriage. After the interview where I was the only one questioned by
officials (under oath), I stopped calling again, praising Haley's
miraculous recovery from addiction.
At this point, sometime in mid-April approximately 5
months after I left the marriage, Haley found the marriage to be a
fraud. She was in denial about the fraudulent nature of the marriage
until her friends started telling her how ridiculous this marriage
truly was. Haley started to discover from friends who previously did
not want to be involved that I was dating Monika Miklos and living with
her during the marriage even though I claimed to live in a studio.
She talked to me one last time in mid-April where she
asked me if the marriage was a fraud, simply for a conditional green
card. Of course I denied it. As the love from her heart dissipated, she
became much more rational and realized the only reason I married her,
the only reason I promised her the world, the only reason for
everything was my agenda to procure legal status in the United States.
I have not talked to Haley since mid-April when she
moved out of her apartment. She refuses to talk to me after I
threatened her against divorcing me. I even offered to pay for the
duration of the marriage but Haley still refuesed any money from me. I
even tried to tell her I love her and offered to move back in with me.
Alas, she'd rather erase the past all together from
her mind. I'm sure she'd like to thank her friends and lawyers for
supporting her throughout this entire ordeal and their continued
Del Toro's Affidavit Against Haley Paige
I, Csaba Marton declare:
1. I am the Respondent in this action, and make this
declaration in support of my opposition to Petitioner's motion for an
order of nullity based on alleged fraud, and for attorney's fees and
2. Actually, I filed for dissolution first against Ms.
Haley on June 17, 2006. She was not served until July 16, 2006 because
I could not find her.
3. In general, my marriage to Ms. Haley was legitimate
and not based on fraud.
4. On April 17, 2005 I met Ms. Haley. I was a director
of, and she was an actress in an adult movie. We were interested in
each other, and dated for about five months before I moved in with her
in September 2005. At that time she lived in a one-bedroom apartment at
11125, Acama Street, North Hollywood, California. Around the time we
moved in together, we opened a joint bank account. A true and correct
copy of a check from that account is attached as Ex. 2.
5. From the beginning, I was always honest with her
about my immigration status. I never told her I was here legally. I
told her that I had overstayed my visa, and was taking steps to become
a U.S. citizen. It was our mutual decision to get married, and we did
so on October 15, 2005. I never rushed Ms. Haley into getting married,
it was by mutual decision because we wanted to. Attached as Ex. 3 is a
photograph of me and Ms. Haley that was shot in our apartment the day
after we were married.
6. Ms. Haley and I discussed the marriage well before
it took place. We agreed that we were getting married for love, but
agreed to sign a premarital agreement. We both went to a paralegal
service and had an agreement prepared which we signed on October 7,
2005. A true and correct copy is attached as Ex. 4.
7. Our marriage was consummated numerous times and
there is no issue about that.
8. I have reviewed Ms. Haley's declaration and it is
not entirely correct. Paragraph 12 of her declaration is true, though
we both decided to get married at the beach as a romantic gesture.
Paragraph 13 is not correct because we lived together in her apartment
for at least one month before we got married.
9. Our marriage ended in April 2006, six months after
we were married on October 15, 2005 because of Ms. Haley's addiction to
painkillers and other drugs. When I became aware of her addiction, I
encouraged her to attend meetings at Narcotic Anonymous ("NA").
Paragraph 17 of her declaration is not correct. She states we separated
November 23, 2005. Actually, we put the utilities in the apartment in
both our names in February 2006 and attended a meeting together at the
INS office on March 7, 2006. Based on our meeting with an INS officer I
was given a two year green card.
10. We did live as a married couple for six months. I
did not have a "girlfriend" during this time. I did remain friends with
a Ms. Miklos who is also Hungarian and a friend from long ago.
11. The assertions in paragraph 22 of Ms. Haley's
declaration are not true. She is quoting from Hungarian tabloids a
bunch of a nonsense that was written about me and my ex-wife, Sarolta
Zaltnay. Ms. Zaltnay was (and still is) an actress, singer, and
celebrity in Hungary. The tabloids there (as in the U.S.) frequently
write lies and other sensational nonsense about celebrities to sell
magazines. None of it is true.
I was born on December 30, 1981 and am a citizen of
the United States of America.
I met Csaba Marton, a Hungarian-born citizen, in May
2005 at an adult movie shoot where he worked as a cameraman. He seemed
to take a particular liking to me and continued to hire me for more
On my third shoot, he asked me out on a date. After
three weeks of dating and intimate relations, he brought up the subject
of marriage. He asked, "What do you think about marriage? Do you think
about getting married? What do you think about us getting married?" At
that time I believed I was in love and I had never fallen in love so
quickly before. He insisted that he would not judge me for my job,
saying, "I don't care about you doing porn. It's not a big deal if you
do black guys, do gays or gangbangs". I had been depressed since I felt
that no one could ever love me if they knew about my occupation. I was
prepared to accept his marriage proposal and grew more attracted to him
as I began to trust and love him wholeheartedly.
During our period of courtship, I was not aware of
Csaba's illegal alien status as he never gave me any indication of his
immigration problems. He persuaded me to believe he was acting on pure
love and our relations would have no bearing on his immigration
proceedings. He told me that he was famous in Hungary and was in good
standing with U.S. immigration. He said he was not an illegal alien and
had only a few more months to go before he would receive his greencard.
I accepted his marriage proposal with good faith and
sincerely believed we would spend our lives together in every aspect
that holy matrimony ordinarily offers. I told my friends I was in love
as Csaba treated me like a princess, from the way he spoke to me to how
he acted around me. He told me he had never met anymore more beautiful
and for the first time in my life, I felt like a teenager in love.
However, Csaba told me that I shouldn't tell anyone we were dating and
contemplating marriage. He didn't want anyone to know about his
I respected his decision since I wanted to be loved
and craved his affection. Growing up, I had never received much love or
affection. I was molested by an uncle, which my parents knew about but
never did anything. At school, I raped consistently by gang members. As
a result of these traumatic experiences, I went into counseling for two
months. In addition, my last boyfriend prior to Csaba was verbally,
emotionally, mentally and physically abusive, only compounding my
During our dating period, he became very controlling,
demanding to know who my friends were and whom I went out with. He did
not like my friend Stephanie very much because she saw his possessive
characteristics. In turn, he introduced me to his friends, essentially
the people in the adult entertainment industry. A select few people
knew that I was his girlfriend but most people did not even realize we
were dating. I respected his request for privacy even though gossip of
our relationship would not have affected our work.
Csaba told me he had been married before to a famous
Hungarian singer (Sarolta Zalatnay) and that the marriage ended
approximately four to five years ago. He said he had been living in the
U.S. for seven years.
When we had dated for about two and a half months,
Csaba told me suddenly something had happened and we needed to get
married within one month; otherwise, we would have to wait over two
years to get married. When I questioned him for specific reasons, he
explained it as merely a "timing thing". Getting married would actually
be detrimental to his greencard application, he told me, but he was
still willing to take that risk and marry me. I had no knowledge of
immigration regulations and trusted him wholeheartedly. I had no reason
not to trust him since at that time, he had never lied to me (to my
knowledge). He asked me to find someone convenient to marry us as soon
as possible as he kept saying, "I can't wait to be your husband". At
that point, I wanted to be his wife and believed that at some time in
the near future, we would have a big celebration with family and
friends. He instructed me not to tell anyone of our plans since he
wanted the big affair to be perceived as the real thing. In addition,
he planned to market it as the first pornographic wedding movie. When I
did tell my parents and a few close friends, Csaba became extremely
upset and ordered me not to tell anyone else.
On October 15, 2005, driving to Santa Monica, Csaba
turned to me and said, "Let's get married right now on the beach.
Wouldn't that be romantic?" I said, "yes" and was extremely happy about
his idea. We contacted the Los Angeles marriage office and promptly
bought wedding rings. Five hours later, with his cousin Tibor as
witness and wearing jeans, sweatshirts and yellow sweats, we were
married on Santa Monica beach by Minister Chris Robinson. Pictures of
the wedding ceremony were taken by Tibor.
Our marriage was not consummated that evening. Csaba
dropped me off at my apartment and told me he still had video editing
to work on at his studio. I was devastated since in my mind I felt like
this night should have been special. However, I could not say anything
since I feared making him upset and angry.
The following day, he arrived at my place with all of
his possessions (computer, clothes, dog, desk, DVDs, etc). Since my
apartment consists only of 600 sq. feet, he took me to look at houses.
Upon deciding on a house, he assured me he had enough money for the
down payment. However, later on, he told me he wanted to save more
money and buy a better house so we held off from purchasing a larger
We had signed a prenuptial agreement one week prior to
our marriage to protect our assets. Upon moving into my apartment,
Csaba never paid any of the bills. He did loan me money on two
occasions to help with rent but I paid him back promptly. He said he
was struggling with finances as he was still in debt and paying for his
car. However, I genuinely believed our relationship was moving along as
well as could be expected.
At this time, I was suffering from an addiction to
painkillers that my doctor had prescribed. Csaba knew about my
addiction and began giving me painkillers to keep my withdrawal
symptoms away. I was taking painkillers to numb myself for video shoots
and I did not know how to treat my addiction. Csaba told me that one of
his friends had died from a painkiller overdose and he was now
concerned about me.
The night before Thanksgiving, on November 23, 2005,
Csaba met with a painkiller doctor/specialist and returned home to tell
me that the doctor thought it would be better if I recover from my
addiction alone. I was completed shocked and devastated at this
announcement. One hour prior to this, with his knowledge, I had made
plans to visit my mother and her new boyfriend for the first time to
celebrate Thanksgiving in San Diego. He began moving most of his
belongings out of the apartment that night and finished the day after
while I was at work. We had lived together as a married couple for only
a little more than a month before he announced his decision to move out.
During this time we had minimal contact and no
intimate relations. I followed through with my sobriety plans in his
absence. I wanted to be with him but he constantly excused himself as
"unavailable". I began to feel that he did not want me to sober up so
that he would always have a reason to stay away and be able to make me
feel guilty. He told me he had moved to his studios while we were
I made plans for Christmas day in that he would come
to my place and celebrate with since I did not think he had family in
the area. I bought presents and wrapped them under the tree in
anticipation of his visit. However, he did not show up and or even call
for the week following Christmas. A week later, in January 2006, Csaba
called to say that he was staying with his stepbrother Gabor who was
going through a divorce. He explained Gabor was depressed and they had
gone to Vegas for a week.
In February 2006, Csaba told me that we had to go to
the INS for the "little interview". He put on his best behavior during
this time, asking for us to hang out and be friends again. He asked me,
"Can I do anything for you? Let's hang out and be pals". However, there
was still no intimacy between us. We have not shared a common residence
since November 23, 2005 when Csaba moved out.
At that time, I was in denial and still hoped our
marriage would be able to work. I was too scared to confront the truth
as I was already emotionally and mentally devastated by his absence. I
needed denial to stay sober as I struggled both with my addiction and
my marriage. During my state of emotional distress and vulnerability, I
was deceived by his many promises of reconciliation as he led me to
believe that we may be able to save our marriage. With this falsehood,
Csaba coerced me to agree to accompany him to his INS interview. At
that time, I still held faith in our marital relations and believed our
marriage continued to stand on authentic grounds of love and commitment.
We met with an attorney named Bernard Lurie a few
weeks prior to the interview to be advised on what documents we needed.
The lawyer said the immigration officials would not ask me any
Prior to the interview date, Csaba called me while
crying that he needed my help with taking more realistic wedding
photos. Believing this would be an opportunity to spend time together
and rekindle our love, I went along with his idea. I wanted to do
everything right so he would love me again. The pictures were taken by
his friend Kenny, depicting us in more traditional wedding garb from
the waist up. We wore jeans which were not shown in the photos and I
donned a fake "wedding veil" purchased from a costume store. We also
took a picture at a nearby Starbucks where Csaba pretended to know
someone at the restaurant Jerry's Deli and persuaded this "friend" to
take a picture with us "newlyweds". He wanted to use this picture as
evidence that he was introducing me to his friends as his wife.
I was persuaded to remain silent on the above matter
as he convinced me I would face grave legal consequences if his
interview did not proceed well since I was bound to him by marital
relations. I had no knowledge of immigration regulations and feared his
threats to be true.
The interview took place in February or March 2006 and
we were accompanied by our lawyer. At the interview, Csaba brought our
marriage certificate, joint bill, joint bank statement (Washington
Mutual), photo album with the fake photos mentioned above, false
wedding announcement cards, and false congratulation cards.
After the interview, I did not hear from Csaba for a
month. I had been sober for almost six months by that time; yet he
showed no intentions of resuming our relationship. Realizing that he
was not returning, I was very upset and called him in mid-April to ask
if our relationship was strictly for his immigration purposes. He
replied, "I never lied to you. I have documents to prove that I was a
legal citizen and that by marrying you, it made me harder to stay in
the country". I asked for copies of the documents but he refused to
hand them over to me. Instead, Csaba offered me money if I would not
seek divorce and keep silent on his immigration matters. I refused his
monetary offer and since then, we have not had any contact or direct
I have only now began to realize that my marriage was
a complete sham, initiated and planned by Csaba solely for his
immigration purposes. He never had any intention of staying in the
marriage and saw our relations solely as a means to procure a permanent
residency. There was no marital faithfulness as during our
relationship, he secretly kept in contact with his previous
Hungarian-born girlfriend who had obtained her own permanent residency
through marriage to a U.S. citizen. Unbeknownst to me, Csaba designed
our relationship to culminate in marriage and ultimately, his
attainment of permanent residency in the U.S. In retrospect, I am
greatly distressed by the manner in which I have been deceived and lied
I now realize the extreme depths to which my marriage
was based on fraud and deception. My husband was never the person he
portrayed himself to be as he lied about his immigration status and his
Hungarian ties. I learned recently through an article printed on
Transition Online, a European news website, that my husband was charged
with fraud alongside his ex-wife in Hungary. The article states that he
moved out to Los Angeles and in 2002, informed Hungarian authorities
that he had a "medical condition" preventing him from returning to his
home country to stand trial. From the day I met Csaba, he has never
mentioned this part of his past as he gave all indications of a clean
record. He never discussed this as a possible reason for his urgency to
obtain permanent residency in the United States.
I am submitting to the U.S. Immigration Services this
affidavit and supporting documentation for proper investigation in the
validity of Csaba's greencard. As painful as the experience has been
for me, I realize this is no mere marital dispute or dissolution of
marriage. Rather, in light of the fact that Csaba designed this
marriage from the onset to obtain his permanent residency, his actions
would constitute a serious violation of U.S. immigration and criminal
I am deeply distressed that I was unknowingly
exploited by my husband for my U.S. citizenship status. Nevertheless, I
still firmly believe in the principles and values of the United States
and feel bound by my duties as an American citizen to present this
before the proper authorities for investigative action.
