Half Of Pandemic Unemployment Funds May Have Been Stolen....WTF?
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]


As much as half of the unemployment benefits paid by the US government over the past year may have been stolen through fraud, with the bulk ultimately ending up outside the country - likely into the hands of foreign crime syndicates in China, Nigeria, Russia and elsewhere, according to Axios' Felix Salmon.

According to some estimates, unemployment fraud during the pandemic could 'easily reach $400 billion,' as states weren't prepared for the unprecedented wave of unemployment claims

States knew that fraud was inevitable, but opted to rush money out to people with minimal oversight, as opposed to laboriously vetting each application.

According to Blake Hall, CEO of ID.me - a fraud prevention service, America has lost over $400 billion to fraudulent claims, with as much as 50% of all unemployment payments possibly being stolen.

Of that, up to 70% of the money stolen by impostors ultimately left the country according to Haywood Talcove, CEO of LexisNexis Risk Solutions, who ways "These groups are definitely backed by the state."

The rest of the money was likely stolen by street gangs domestically, who have made up a greater share of the fraud in recent months.

How it works: Scammers often steal personal information and use it to impersonate claimants. Other groups trick individuals into voluntarily handing over their personal information.

"Mules" — low-level criminals — are given debit cards and asked to withdraw money from ATMs. That money then gets transferred abroad, often via bitcoin.
The big picture: Before the pandemic, unemployment claims were relatively rare, and generally lasted for such short amounts of time that international criminal syndicates didn't view them as a lucrative target. -Axios





Isn't this just a perfect example of what America has become?

Do not, do not, fucking DO NOT rely on one word of information coming from ID.me, who is the for-profit tech company using gov contracts to build their national digital ID product for all consumer/retail, gov, medical transactions.

State governments are/were forcing citizens to enter into legal contracts with ID.me and hand over all confidental info inclusive of birth certs, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, access to credit reports and biometrics through forced use of the ID.me app...

IN EXCHANGE FOR unemployment and other government/public trust benefits.

That's extortion.

There is so very much to this situation. But the net is: watch out for ID.me.

Definitely. Take a glance at the Forbes article.

ID.me is a ten year start-up. What? At what point is a company no longer a start-up? Lol

It was started by a military guy, who targeted military, VA and other benefits sort of hobbling along.

Within the last year, they have been heavily funded by the financial sector and are suddenly now valued at $1.5B. Their model is to build through government contracts...at the expense of citizens.

I personally became caught up in the mess and speak from direct experience with a huge amount of hard evidence.

But, to answer your question, I'd be greatly surprised if vax ID and other health/medical weren't part of their target product list.

Well, BLM, ANTIFA, and LGBTQ have been getting money from somewhere. They cannot protest and riot for a year on end without money coming in, and even Soros cannot afford to pay tens of thousands for a year. I know BLM was writing a lot of checks for them, but even that money is limited. So I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it was getting funnelled back to them, even if it was originally pulled out of the country. Remember, ANTIFA is filled with computer geek guys like Eric Coomer, who have the computer smarts to do that kind of thing. Hell, he said he stole the election after all, so unemployment
frauad would be child's play.

Indeed. My first issue in this process is that my state government was forcing a citizen to contract with a private company to receive gov/public services.

Then, the secondary issue was being forced to contract with a private company who required me to not only disclose but to grant ownership and usage rights to all my confidental and private data (per TOS) as well as agree to all Google Inc TOS.

It took me over a month working with my State Senator's office and great determination refusing to allow my rights to be violated, laws violated and to reach an agreeable workaround.

These ID.me people staff out of India. That's where our confidential data are held or, at minimum, they have access...and, the company doesn't even have a customer service number.

Corporatocracy. The building of the next Google through government contracts.

The justification: gov claiming they cannot verify citizen ID with the very identification instruments issued by our gov.

"Fraud! Fraud!" The next boogeyman. Be fearful of fraud and hand your confidential docs to a for profit, private tech company because they will save the day!

You know the claimed identification issue by the gov agency is complete horseshit when you offer to visit their physical offices with your certified docs for an in person meeting and verification, and they refuse. Uh huh.

My immediate advice is to refuse using any third-party service for identification purposes even if your state unemployment agency tells you or convinces you that you must.

Forcing a citizen to enter into a binding legal contract with a private company as a condition of your receipt of gov services and/or benefits is illegal.

My second piece of advice is involving your State Senator's office with a constituency issue (rather than a legislative issue) if you are experiencing issues with your agency.

What state? The process outside the identification issue is different for each; though, as of two months ago, 22 states were using the ID.me extortion model.

What roadblocks are you experiencing?

CA is a ID.me state.

How could your Senator FU your application process? They are simply there to give, well, extra pressure to the agencies to do their jobs, and using your Senator/Rep, I discovered in this process, is a means to the next level agency management to which you would not have access otherwise. And, they are held accountable if your Sen staff are effective. Agencies don't like Senator offices calling them with operations problems.

If you haven't reached the ID stage, then I'm deducing you are still at the initial application stage. Did you provide all the docs they requested?

And, they are held accountable if your Sen staff are effective. Agencies don't like Senator offices calling them with operations problems.

If you haven't reached the ID stage, then I'm deducing you are still at the initial application stage. Did you provide all the docs they requested?

Re: Half Of Pandemic Unemployment Funds May Have Been Stolen....WTF?
Do not, do not, fucking DO NOT rely on one word of information coming from ID.me, who is the for-profit tech company using gov contracts to build their national digital ID product for all consumer/retail, gov, medical transactions.

State governments are/were forcing citizens to enter into legal contracts with ID.me and hand over all confidental info inclusive of birth certs, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, access to credit reports and biometrics through forced use of the ID.me app...

IN EXCHANGE FOR unemployment and other government/public trust benefits.

That's extortion.

There is so very much to this situation. But the net is: watch out for ID.me.

They just moved to Tampa Florida with over 1300 jobs, minimum wage or $14.00 hr., why do companies think they can come to Florida and pay employees little money?
 Quoting: KuvaszLove


Yeah, well many of those low-wage employees will have access to confidental and private data of citizens.

How tempting will it be to make some extra bank on black market (whatever they call it now) data sales of SS #s, DL #, banking and financial info, biometrics, entire ID profiles?

In TX, you are automatically considered for regular UI and then PUA when you apply.

Many receive both, but they are treated separately.

Did you work for an employer and were laid off due to "the pandemic"?

This shit just gets better and better doesn't it?

I commend you for your due diligence. It is exactly that kind of determination and persistence that is required to hopefully stem the tide a bit of this upcoming Orwellian future, but I'm afraid it seems in very short supply with most these days!
 Quoting: Don Draper from Nantucket


You are spot on, Don, but my discovery was that my Senator's office was completely unaware of the issue - in fact, the Constituency Services Specialist first didn't believe me - which indicates I was the only person in the district up to that point who was complaining and calling "foul".

When you conduct a quick search for ID.me + review, you'll find complaint after complaint...of the service and issues experienced with ID.me, which means people had already contracted with the company. They contracted with and provided their confidential data to an unknown tech company because a gov agency told them to do so. gotbop

Short supply, indeed. Do people not understand their rights or not care about their rights or both?
