Hackers linked to Chinese government stole millions in Covid benefits, Secret Service says

  1. Between foreign fraud and US fraud, one wonders just how much reached those for whom the loans were intended. Couple that with loan forgiveness of larger businesses and the lack of forgiveness for small businesses.

  2. I always thought it was INSANE how people blamed $1400 checks for inflation when there was practically endless fraud from major corporations, businesses that were not harmed during the pandemic, and foreign actors who had LLCs.

  3. “It would be crazy to think this group didn’t target all 50 states,” said Roy Dotson, national pandemic fraud recovery coordinator for the Secret Service, who also acts as a liaison to other federal agencies probing pandemic fraud.

  4. Well, listen: if you want a meaningful amount of free money from the government, steal it or already be rich. Preferably both. Don’t go at them with all that “I’m too poor to survive”, or ”I’m disabled and need help to be alive” bullshit, okay?

  5. My company informed me there was an unemployment claim in my name during peak COVID. I wonder if it was related to this and the OPM breach where I know China now has all my info.

  6. No surprise at all! There was no safeguards put in place by republican law makers to prevent it! And why so many republican representatives actually collected money as well!

  7. If China was able to exploit the PPP loans then isn’t it a possibility that nations like Russia or even North Korea did the same?

  8. So way more money went to scammers and the such then the actual people it was supposed to help? Why was this set up in such a way that fraud was inevitable? Why was the over site removed by Congress? (we all know the answers here)
