Secret Service Reports $100 Billion Minimum Stolen in Pandemic Relief Funds

The U.S. Secret Service says nearly $100 billion has been stolen from COVID-19 relief programs set up to help businesses and people who lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

Who couldn’t have guessed that the Big Government would pay no attention to the distribution?

Most of that figure comes from unemployment fraud. The Labor Department reported about $87 billion in unemployment benefits could have been paid improperly, with a significant portion attributable to fraud, ABC News reports.

They have retrieved under $4 billion, so forget seeing most of the funds returned to the treasury.

This is how well the government takes care of our money as we struggle during high inflation that is continuing to rise.

Your link to the U. S. Secret Service report does not show such a report. It takes me to an ABC web page and it shows only older reports.

Can you provide a better way to view the report?

Thanks.

As always politicians have a default mechanism to create a global crisis…allocate mega cash, ours not theirs, then massage their cut. Walla we have enterprising citizens who follow their lead.
