New reports indicate two families in China are accused of paying more than one million dollars each to get their children into college, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The family of 21-year old Sherry Guo paid $1.2 million to get her into Yale. She is no longer enrolled at the Ivy League institution. Guo’s family is accused of paying the money to Rick Singer, who prosecutors call the mastermind in the scandal. Then Singer allegedly paid former Yale women’s soccer coach Rudolph Meredith $400,00 to get Guo in as a soccer recruit.

A second family from China is suspected of paying $6.5 million for their child. Neither family has been charged, but remains under investigation.

The two families paid significantly more than the 33 parents already facing criminal charges in the case, according to Axios. Those families paid $250,000 – $400,000.
