(Scroll down for video) A for-profit college was slapped with a lawsuit after being accused of using strippers to recruit new students, the Florida Attorney General said.

According to the federal lawsuit filed in Miami, the college used exotic dancers as admissions officers, falsified documents and told students to lie on financial forms.

They fraudulently obtained millions of dollars in federal funding.

At least one of its seven campuses, FastTrain College, deliberately hired attractive women and sometimes exotic dancers, and encouraged them to dress provocatively while they recruited young men in the neighborhood.

The attorney general of Florida and the federal prosecutor in Miami announced Wednesday, that they were filing a joint lawsuit against FastTrain and former owner, 56-year-old Alejandro Amor.

Amor of Coral Gables, was charged with conspiracy and theft of government money. FastTrain and Amor, defrauded the Department of Education of the United States by millions of dollars.

The school is accused of forging high school diplomas for students.
