Hundreds of millions in unemployment benefits paid to fraudsters

Here is a daunting story about millions being paid to fraudsters who BELONG in prison.

The Employment Security Department is reporting that it paid hundreds of millions of dollars in unemployment benefits to fraudsters.

The false unemployment claims were made with tens of thousands of identities stolen from Washingtonians.

And now, the Washington residents who are out of work and filing legitimate unemployment claims will have to wait a bit longer to see those benefits.

“As we got a better sense of the scale and scope of the fraud that was being perpetrated, it was necessary for us to pause payments to be able to put additional measures in place that would help fraudulent claims from being paid out,” said Nick Demerice, director of public affairs for Employment Security.

  3. Amazing. Government prints trillions under the guise of assisting those temporarily down on their luck, but professional deadbeats know how to game the system and POOF! The money is gone.

    Stop. Helping. Us.

  4. Yeah, nobody saw that one coming. When you throw that much money out there, the cockroaches come out of hiding.

  5. I’m betting it all went into antifa employment funds. They gotta pay the brown shirts somehow.

  6. It’s WA. What do you expect. That state is the home to leftist douchebags, elected and in the deep state. Incompetence is their watchword.
