Brickbat: Other People's Money

|

Ohio State Auditor Keith Faber says that for eight straight months in 2020, the Department of Job and Family Services told his office it was seeing only the "ordinary scope" of unemployment benefits fraud. In fact, as early as June the DJFS knew it was facing a tidal wave of fraud, some $332 million in fraudulent claims. Faber also says that the DJFS was slow to enact anti-fraud measures. Faber said someone even filed a claim in his name, but his department's human resources office caught it and reported it before any money was paid.

  1. What would you expect from scum that work for a government entity calling itself Department of Job and Family Services, when it’s just a welfare office?

    They’re so divorced from what they’re supposed to be doing because they’re swimming in a euphemism.

  3. THE Ohio State Auditor.

    1. ^^^ You win the thread!

  4. Faber said someone even filed a claim in his name…

    “Someone.”

  5. No surprise government entities hooked themselves into the public internet with poorly coded shoddy websites. Then because everyone’s information is public (by choice or not) scum and villains can use that to submit claims to the UI offices or IRS. Or worse. And the government has no responsibility even though they are part of the problem.

  6. Half that fraud is abetted by employees. One of the effects of teaching people they “deserve” government money is them taking it whenever they can.

  7. “Faber said someone even filed a claim in his name, but his department’s human resources office caught it and reported it before any money was paid.”

    Faber then fired the entire human resources department.

  11. Hmm, interesting…

  12. Thanks for this news. Personally, it seems to me that this is not the usual scale, as Keith says. I heard that scammers in California stole over $ 1 billion in funds from the unemployed support fund during the pandemic. This was reported by the Politico agency, citing statements by four district and one federal prosecutors. By the way, you can find more materials on this topic on Facebook, which just prove the enormous scale of such schemes. I saw a couple of dozen posts on this topic there and noticed that most of them were published by accounts with almost 14 thousand subscribers! I am sure that in order to achieve such indicators, the owners of these accounts have resorted to the services of https://viplikes.net/ and quickly increase their number.
