Re: 36 Billions Unemployment Fraud

This is absolutely current and ongoing news.  I see new stories about it everyday. 

 

Almost all states are now trying to quantify the extent of false and fraudulent claims.   And some people are receiving tax forms reporting benefits they never applied for.

 

It is evolving and timely and newsworthy.  This story is not going away.

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - During the month of December, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) identified 56,000 fraudulent overpayments in the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program - equating to a total of $330 million.

ODJFS Director Kimberely Henderson said approximately 100,000 fraudulent PUA claims in December were stopped, which saved the state hundreds of millions of dollars.
