“CORONAVIRUS FRAUD NEWS” – Justice Department Overwhelmed

HEADLINE HEALTH – A U.S. Department of Justice web page reveals a stunning number of prosecution in progress for fraudulent coronavirus schemes.

More that two dozen such prosecutions have been announced in just the past two weeks, including:

  • A West Palm Beach nursing home that conspired to let friends of the organization and its leadership cut the line to get the first COVID vaccines ahead of nursing home residents.
  • A Boston-area man who became a millionaire almost overnight by submitting phony Paycheck Protection Program applications for employees who did not exist.
  • Two more business owners who sought $5 million from the Small Business Administration’s  Economic Injury Disaster Loan program and other federal sources by filing false documents.

These and more rip-offs funded by U.S. taxpayers are detailed in the official press releases below.
