A San Francisco Bay Area parent is suing the wealthy parents accused in the college admissions scam for $500 billion, reports ABC7 News.

Jennifer Kay Toy is asking for damages from the wealthy parents who allegedly paid their children’s ways into colleges while Toy’s son was rejected with a 4.2 GPA.

“I’m not a wealthy person, but even if I were wealthy I would not have engaged in the heinous and despicable actions of defendants,” the lawsuit stated. “I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough, but because wealthy individuals felt that it was OK to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college.”

NBC Los Angeles reports two Stanford students have also filed a class action suit against their school and other elite universities, saying the scandal has reduced the value of their degrees.

The suit also names William Singer, the founder of Key Worldwide Foundation. Authorities say Singer used his foundation to launder money and funnel it from wealthy parents to college coaches, administrators, and others, including Singer himself.
