The dishonest agents use a system call part admission to con the students. During a con, the student is admitted with just a fraction of the actual fees and the agent promises the college that the student will pay the college in regular interval. The information is kept away from students and they only come to know about it when the college demands for the fees to be cleared. So, be aware of the monetary transactions between the student and the college.
