Small tidbit of unemployment scamming

http://longbeach.patch.com/groups/po...taxpayer-money

Quote:
An Oceanside man has been charged with grand larceny after allegedly stealing more than $18,000 in unemployment insurance benefits to which he was not entitled by hiding employment that paid him more than $90,000 annually.

According to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, 47-year-old Joseph Antonacci was arrested Tuesday morning by DA Investigators and charged with grand larceny in the third degree.

Rice said that Antonacci began receiving unemployment insurance benefits in March 2010 and continued to receive them until June 2011, collecting $405 per week from the taxpayer-funded program. He also received a weekly supplement from the federal government of $25 per week from March 2010 to December 2010.

In July 2010, however, Antonacci began work as the facilities director for the non-profit Educational Alliance in Manhattan where he was paid a salary of $3,653 every two weeks, Rice said.

Antonacci never reported the new job of facilities director to the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL), as required, and continued to fraudulently receive unemployment insurance benefit payments totaling approximately $18,370, Rice said.

The theft was discovered by the NYSDOL in late 2011 during a review of their records and referred to the DA’s Office in November 2012, Rice said.

“These benefits are set aside to help those who are truly in need, not a scam artist looking to make a quick buck on the backs of honest taxpayers,” Rice said. “My office will continue to work with the department of labor to root out those who seek to abuse this essential program and we will be seeking full restitution.”

Antonacci is also facing separate charges in Manhattan that he stole from fellow employees and his employer, Rice said.

Antonacci faces up to seven years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
Now obviously we don't want to gut unemployment, but stuff like this happens ALL the time. I know plenty of friends in construction that get "laid off" in the winter and collect unemployment while they go to work and get paid cash.

Everything needs to be shored up, now.

Why not just place a phone call and turn in your friends? No "shoring up" necessary.

Honestly, around here it would probably fall upon deaf ears. I live under a socialist regime of government employees.

When do we clean up the trade workers that lay each other off during the slow season to collect?

I actually don't think that's what he was getting at. I'm pretty sure he's trying to drag an abortion argument into this discussion with the whole "policing" thing.

Oh. I guess that makes sense. I didn't really follow the abortion thread so I guess I missed that. I figured police patrol and vag is vagina. So in my head I read it as patrolling for vagina and being nose/face deep in pussy. And given the nature of the forum, accusing someone of not getting pussy is common place.



So...

Nah, he's not that witty. He's actually quite witless, and apparently clueless since I'm super pro choice. Yet another fail for the liar.

You're enabling the takers and the rest of us are paying the cost. You should be ashamed to come in here posting about fraud while you look the other way.

You treat the disease, not the symptoms.

You should at least call and turn them in. That way, if nothing happens, then you can at least sleep at night knowing you tried to fight this problem.

Never understood dumba$$es like this. If you're going to scam the system, work for cash. If you have a documented salary, what makes you think this wont catch up to you. Crooks these days, bring shame to the game.

So...
You're probably pretty close to the truth. AOG acts like a guy whose balls are a deep, deep shade of blue. Would explain the blatant assholery.
