FBI raided European Adoption Consultants (EAC)
out of Ohio on Feb. 14, 2017
Strongsville, OH - The U.S. Department of State has debarred European
Adoption Consultants, Inc. (EAC) from accreditation for three years.
Serious allegations were leveled at the agency, including, "evidence
of a pattern of serious, willful, or grossly negligent failure to comply
with the standards and of aggravating circumstances indicating that
continued accreditation of EAC would not be in the best interests of
the children and families concerned, according to U.S. Dept. of State
After being debarred, the FBI raided EAC almost two months later on
Feb. 14, 2017. The FBI has yet to release an official report about why
the adoption agency was raided after operations were halted by federal
authorities. Allegations of selling children have been reported.
Representatives of the adoption agency were quoted in an online video
stating, "It's important to work with a reputable adoption agency..."
which could be considered greatly misleading, considering the reports
that have now been leveled against the reportedly closed for business
The State Department's investigation also alleged that the adoption
agency failed safety procedures that prevent, "...solicitation
of bribes; fraudulently obtaining birth parent consent..." that
landed children at the agency to begin with.
State Dept. further
allegations against EAC
In a report on EAC's website, they
stated, "we disagree with many, if not most, of the statement and
are considering the option of appeal..."
According to its website, EAC operates intercountry adoption programs
in Bulgaria, China, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti,
Honduras, India, Panama, Poland, Tanzania, Uganda, and Ukraine.
