FRAUD DURING THE PANDEMIC

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 12, 2022

         WHILE YOU MAY HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING OTHER NEWS, YOU MAY HAVE MISSED THIS STORY.

         THE WASHINGTON TIMES – A REAL NEWSPAPER – REPORTS ON MASSIVE FRAUD DURING THE PANDEMIC. 2.2 MILLION STIMULUS CHECKS WERE MAILED TO DEAD PEOPLE. 57,000 SMALL BUSINESS LOANS WERE SENT TO THOSE ON THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT’S “DON’T PAY” LIST.

         POSTAL WORKERS STOLE STIMULUS CHECKS AND UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS FROM THE MAIL. AND WE HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR POSTAGE. SOCIAL SECURITY AND UNEMPLOYMENT AGENCY EMPLOYEES USED THEIR ACCESS TO AMERICANS’ IDENTITIES TO WRITE AND IN SOME CASES APPROVE BOGUS BENEFIT APPLICATIONS.

         A MASSACHUSETTS WOMAN WHO HAD BEEN IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR WRITING BAD CHECKS AND IDENTITY CHECKS GOT A JOB THE NEXT DAY WITH THE STATE’S DEPARTMENT OF UNEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE.

         THE WOMAN WOULD GO ON TO STEAL SOME OF THOSE IDENTITIES AND FILE BOGUS PANDEMIC UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS IN THEIR NAMES, AS WELL AS FALSE CLAIMS UNDER HER OWN NAME AND THAT OF HER HUSBAND. ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH HER GUILTY PLEASE, SHE STOLE NEARLY $200 THOUSAND.

DOES ANYONE THINK MOST OR ANY OF THIS MONEY WILL BE RETURNED? I DOUBT IT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
