Divine Sports marketed itself as a non-profit that tutored at-risk youth.  It appears that the owner of the company billed the Miami-Dade School District for hours of tutoring that never occurred. The company even created reports for students that did not exist by using the information of real students.  Hundreds of thousands of dollars may have been fraudulently obtained over multiple years. The fraud was discovered in 2010.  Divine is located in multiple states and the corporate office denied any control over the day-to-day operations of Divine Sports in Miami.
