"scammers siphoned $36B in fraudulent unemployment payments from US"

Imposter Voter Fraud - Undetectable!?

Update November 13, 2020

A vast international fraud network successfully mounted a massive, sophisticated imposter fraud attack on U.S. unemployment and care systems, siphoned hundreds of millions of dollars in payments intended to avert an economic collapse. The same crime network registered imposter voters to vote per mail.

These transnational fraudsters turned the system for new unemployment claims into a very slick pay per vote mechanism. De facto, each imposter vote is paid by Ripping Off the unemployment system that ties in seamlessly with the voter and vote-per-mail registration.

This specific fraud can not be detected by investigating the voting process, or the (re-)counting of ballots, because it was initiated at the voter registration with the same hacked identities to obtain unemployment and care payments.

Why is it not detected?

1. A Low Probability of Detection Crime

The attackers used detailed information about U.S. citizens, such as social security numbers obtained from cyber hacks in recent years, to claim unemployment and care. It is hard to distinguish between legitimate and fraudulent ones because impostors provide the correct information. Fraudulent cases that emerged have their paperwork in order, without the hallmarks of other times when registrations might have mistakes or other indicators that they were not genuine.

2. The financial crime - social security fraud - the system hides voter registration fraud

    A. It took between one and two months for the social services to detect an active imposter unemployment fraud. Usually, the real person still had a job, and they or their employer reported a discrepancy to the unemployment insurance agencies.

    B. The state social services initiated loss prevention, risk mitigation, and an investigation involving the local, state, and national partners. They prefer to investigate and settle fraud incidents within their organization. A majority of cases do not reach law enforcement. Still, when they detected similar issues that indicate organized crime, if lucky, it took an average of another 20 days before law enforcement was aware of the suspicions.

    C. When law enforcement investigates this organized crime with a financial loss, it tracks the money and finds victims, money mules, and cross-border perpetrators. Some federal cases are successfully prosecuted, most are not. Case closed, and the crime of voter registration fraud is buried.

Significant facts about the imposter voter fraud are locked in the unemployment fraud investigations by  the social services, insurance agencies,  FBI, US Secret Service, the US postal inspectors and offices of prosecutors.

3. The attack has exploited unemployment and vote-by-mail systems already strained by processing record numbers of claims and mail-in-ballots.

Even though this imposter fraud has a Low Probability of Detection and is accessible to a global pool of criminal perpetrators, the scheme originates from well-organized Nigerian fraud rings known to operate this size and organized fraud scope.

Foreign interference in the elections

Nigeria's corrupt politicians and  organized crime are infamous for manipulating the outcomes of local elections and undermining democracies in Africa. Over two decades, it has improved its methods and human resources to systematically corrupt Nigeria's consecutive governments.

In 2020, their capabilities to massively rip off America for billions of dollars have unveiled a powerful Pay-per-Vote extension interfering with the U.S. elections. 

Executive Order 13848

September 12, 2018

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. Although there has been no evidence of a foreign power altering the outcome or vote tabulation in any United States election, foreign powers have historically sought to exploit America’s free and open political system. In recent years, the proliferation of digital devices and internet-based communications has created significant vulnerabilities and magnified the scope and intensity of the threat of foreign interference, as illustrated in the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment. I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with this threat. Executive Order 13848

Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election
In Pittsburgh, Fifteen thousand people who came to vote were sent away because somebody already registered them as a voter by mail

In Pittsburgh, Fifteen thousand people who came to vote were sent away because somebody already registered them as a voter by mail.

Either they tried to vote more often, or they are victims of organized imposter voter fraud.
To get a tight grip on these voter imposter incidents, one could start by investigating how many identities of those fifteen thousand identified voters are in recent months also registered for unemployment or Care benefits (while still having a job).

Unemployment Imposter Fraud
419 Nigerian fraud funding terror and politicians

The growing profits and expanding networks of Nigerian 419 fraud syndicates are a game changer

Update August 2019

Profits are flowing into other crimes, terrorism, and support of politicians in including Presidential candidates

Profits of Nigerian fraud are skyrocketing for the exponentially growing numbers of perpetrators of this endemic crime.

419 syndicates invest in recruitment and development of new fraud formats and markets. For example, 419 profits from CEO/BUSINESS EMAIL COMPROMISE (BEC) FRAUD, Romance scams, and Sextortion flow into other crimes, terrorism, and support of Nigerian politicians.

Scam activity has increased

Although there has been a decline in the use of UK company back accounts by 419 scammers, there has been a steep rise in the use of money mules and in victims of Auction, Job, and Romance fraud. For example, The UK National Fraud Authority calculated that 1 in 50 British know someone who has been the victim of a romance scam.

Remember that evidence links Romance 419ers and "the global Movement" of the Nigerian terror group Boko Haram.

Also note that in 2016 we monitored tens of millions in cash and cash card transfers from the US and Canada to Nigerian politicians and money launderers in London. Significant additional amounts were also laundered in Dubai.
