Chicago travel agent Rashid Minhas was convicted of fraud late Tuesday in federal court.

Chicago travel agent Rashid Minhas was convicted of fraud late Tuesday in federal court.

Four years ago the ABC7 I-Team uncovered a scheme in which Minhas had kept traveler's payments for pilgrimages to Mecca, even though the trips were canceled.

"We lost $9,000 and we worked hard for it," said victim Tabasum Manzoor.

Prosecutors say Minhas continued his scheme while out on bond and now faces a second set of new federal charges. He is currently being held at the MCC.
