REVEALED: FBI uncovered the massive, nationwide college fraud scheme by ACCIDENT while working an unrelated undercover operation

The FBI reportedly uncovered the bombshell college admissions bribery scandal by accident while working on an unrelated undercover operation.

Officials say the sprawling, nationwide corruption probe dubbed Operation Varsity Blues was sparked when someone being interviewed for an unrelated case tipped authorities off.

Fifty parents and coaches have already been charged in connection with the plot that involved parents paying bribes of up to $6million to get their children into elite schools between 2011 and 2018, according to an affidavit filed in federal court on Tuesday.

Among those charged were Oscar nominee Felicity Huffman, Fuller House star Lori Loughlin, and a former tennis coach for the Obamas.

Boston's US attorney Andrew Lelling warned that the investigation is ongoing and others could be charged.
