Social Security Scandal Discovered, Scammer Indicted For Fleecing Taxpayers

We sometimes find those who are willing to “eliminate the middleman” in order to get government financial assistance.

Another term for this would be social security fraud.

And given the size of the US welfare state, it would be a shock if we didn’t find creative individuals seeking direct access to money for which they did not qualify.

The fraudsters’ creativity can be impressive. In any case, it’s the US taxpayer who winds up funding this theft. And that is wrong.

A New York woman put together a website to sell stolen Social Security numbers to people who would prefer not to use their own SSNs when applying for loans. This “service” enabled those with lousy credit scores to get loans for which they would not otherwise have qualified. However, it’s all over now as she has pleaded guilty to criminal charges and faces up to 30 years in prison.

“Kristin M. Kitchen, also known as Kristin M. Vargas, 33, admitted to owning and operating a website in 2013 and 2014 through which she sold stolen Social Security numbers, authorities said.

“Kitchen advertised the stolen numbers as ‘credit profile numbers’ and encouraged customers to use them in place of their own Social Security numbers on credit and loan applications to avoid their own negative credit histories, authorities said. Kitchen also admitted to using one of the stolen numbers herself on applications for a loan in 2014, authorities said.

“Kitchen faces up to 30 years in prison, up to 5 years of post-imprisonment supervised release and a maximum $250,000 fine when she is sentenced on May 14.”

It seems like a foolish way to commit a crime. Setting up a website to sell stolen Social Security numbers is obviously a very public act. It has to be to attract customers.

And while some might have been fooled by her calling these SSNs she was selling “credit profile numbers,” there are those who will quickly figure out what’s going on.

So her apprehension for this crime was just a matter of time. Hence our opinion that this was a pretty stupid way to run a scam operation. Not that we have any experience in such matters. It’s just that working to publicize your crimes on the internet sounds like a plan that was not very well thought through.

Now if all financial criminals made as big of a mess of things as this woman, law enforcement’s job would be much easier. And financial crime would drop precipitously.

Unfortunately, Ms. Kitchen is likely to be more the exception than the rule.

‘Poor’ Muslim Lives Off Taxpayers For Over 18 Years, Then Police Are Tipped Off And Discover Her True Story

For hard-working taxpayers, few things are more off putting than the fact that there are plenty of folks out there that subsist off the government dole.

It becomes even more upsetting when it’s exposed that folks that simply have no reason to be collecting benefits are living high on the hog off the fruits of the labor of others.

Such was the situation at hand with this shocking case. While the Muslim woman at the center of it has been busted and brought to justice, that doesn’t make it any less disturbing that she was able to get away with it for so long.

The Daily Mail shares the details.

A ‘millionaire’ Muslim woman who rorted the public housing system for nearly two decades by posing as a battling single mother has finally been evicted from her taxpayer-funded flat.  

'Millionaire' Muslim woman Rebecca Khodragha (pictured), who rorted the public housing system for nearly two decades by posing as a battling single mother, has finally been evicted from her taxpayer-funded flat

Rebecca Khodragha lived in the Punchbowl apartment in south-west Sydney for 18 years, failing to tell authorities her husband owned a lucrative business which reportedly collected a million dollars a year.

Ms Khodragha was found guilty of two counts of fraud in November last year and was sentenced to three months jail, which she served as home detention at the Punchbowl unit.

It’s unclear how ‘home detention’ will serve as much of a deterrent for further unseemly behavior from Khodragha and company, but at least the publically-funded gravy train has stopped making stops at her abode.

Documents revealed Khaled’s electrical contracting business, which raked in $1million each year, was registered to the Punchbowl apartment, according to Seven.

She had been living in a Punchbowl housing commission in Sydney's south-west since 1999

The couple also reportedly had two other properties – a Lakemba unit and a Greenacre house – at the time.

‘She’s not just cheating the taxpayer, she’s cheating people in need,’ Mr Vevers told the broadcaster in February.

After a tip off from the public, Ms Khodragha was prosecuted and ordered to pay back more than $80,000 in rent.

According to Housing NSW, around 60,000 people are on the waiting list for public housing.

We would imagine that local residents are none too pleased at this disturbing revelation.

Revelations such as this become all the more unsettling when you consider the fact that liberal enclaves will bend over backwards to welcome immigrants to their communities.

To have that person respond to the welcome wagon with fraudulent behavior is nothing short of a slap in the face.

While that generally would serve as a massive wake up call for properly grounded folks, it has yet to have the same effect on residents of the liberal echo chamber.

Is It Karma?Lawyer Who Targeted Trump For Sexual Harassment Now Sued For Fraud

Attorney Layer Gloria Allred is always there if a famous star gets into a trouble or a scandal. She is also there standing for people making wild and crazy allegations against celebrities. Also, she was a part of a group of women who attacked and accused President Trump with biased arguments prior to presidential elections.

Now, someone has decided to sue her.

Law Newz reported:

EXCLUSIVE: TV Client Sues Celebrity Attorney Gloria Allred for Fraud, Legal Malpractice
A former client of Gloria Allred has filed a lawsuit against a lawyer for legal malpractice and fraud, claiming she negligently represented him during a case. Kyle Hunter, a local television weatherman, hired Allred to go after CBS for allegedly discriminating against him in favor of younger, attractive female meteorologists. His lawsuit filed on Tuesday argues that Allred has failed his legal case and did not properly inform him that she worked with CBS to produce a legal drama inspired by her life – a clear conflict of interest, he claims.
“As Allred negotiated and secretly a TV deal for herself with CBS during the Hunter lawsuit, the malpractice in her handling of the case led to a near-seven-figure legal bill for Hunter, a sunk suit against CBS, and an impaired reputation for Hunter, “the lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles County Superior County, reads.
Hunter contends that Allred and other attorneys at her company including Michael Morocco and John West failed to interview witnesses, and provide affidavits in his suit, which would have greatly bolstered his case. As a result, he contends, a trial court found in favor of CBS and ordered Hunter to pay attorney’s fees and costs which amounted to $ 800,000.

Breaking: Four Major Democrats ARRESTED for FRAUD!

The Democratic Party was hit with another scandal this week when four Democratic members of a Philadelphia election board were charged Monday with intimidating voters, casting bogus ballots, and falsely certifying the results in their polling place during a March 21 special election for the state House’s 197th District.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the arrested Democrats are Dolores Shaw, 61; Calvin Mattox, 52; Thurman George, 57; and Wallace Hill, 60. Each of them manned the ballot machines at the Esperanza Health Center at Kensington and Allegheny Avenues in the 43rd Ward, one of the polling places where complaints about illegal electioneering were lodged.

Attorney General Josh Shapiro told reporters that these charges should “draw a very clear line ahead of next week’s election.” He added that one elderly couple, two Republicans, cast their ballots together. However, only one was recorded, while the other was replaced with a write-in vote for the Democrat in the race.

Shapiro said that when one voter tried to cast a ballot for the Green Party candidate, he was told the ballot machine was broken and later was cursed at when he returned to try again. Another person who wanted to vote for the Green Party candidate was aggressively questioned when he tried to bring someone into the polling booth to assist him, as allowed by law.

“One should not chalk these actions up to typical partisanship or typical electioneering,” Shapiro said. “These were crimes.”

Emilio Vazquez, the Democratic leader of the 43rd Ward, ended up winning this election and was sworn into office on April 5.

Philadelphia District Attorney Kelley Hodge said that the actions of this election board are “a ruthless example of why so many of our fellow citizens are skeptical and distrustful of our elections.”

“Shaw, who was a judge of elections at the polling place, faces six felonies and four misdemeanors,” the Inquirer reported. “Mattox, a minority inspector, faces six felonies and five misdemeanors. George, a machine inspector, faces five felonies and three misdemeanors. Hill, a translator, faces six felonies and four misdemeanors. They could receive prison time on the most serious charges if convicted.”

Once again, this shows that Democrats believe that they are above the law and will stop at nothing to win the election. They pay no attention to election laws and are willing to violate them just to get themselves more power.
