I know, personally, two people who received a great deal of money from FEMA by fraud. They claimed to have lived in my house, paid rent, owned furniture....They also claimed that my car belonged to them and that it was flooded. Some car's transmission and engine was rebuilt under my vin number and because of this, my title says my car was a victim of the flood. My car hardly saw a drop of rain from this storm, as I had evacuated the day before the storm hit. They also claimed that two children had lived with them in a FEMA trailer, when in fact, the children evacuated to Illinois with the rest of my family (the mother of the children remain in Louisiana with her boyfriend). School records can attest to that. To remove the "flood" from my title will cost me $95.00, in addition to my time. I think people who "steal" federal funds should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I also feel that those who are affected, should be reimbursed by the offenders. I have reported this to FEMA (and actually was lucky enough to speak to a person) and they said they were going to report it to the fraud division. I don't know if I'll ever see or hear anything about it. When I reported one of these people about Social Security Fraud (she spends her severely handi-capped child's benefits on herself), nothing happened. Our tax money is being stolen by people like this, honest people are having reputations ruined and it's just wrong. America, we need to take a stand so our resources are wasted, especially in these difficult economic times!
