They didn't get them all, more companies working folks and paying under the table. Make the employees think they are doing them a favor by not having to pay taxes when the companies are the ones saving. Uneducated folks don't realize they have no workman's comp. or social security if injured! Hope they catch them all!!!

Most of these people are happy to work under the table while the wife's collect welfare and SSI checks. Income tax fraud and welfare fraud in addition to the crimes committed by the companies. Hope they all go to jail!!! They should pay their taxes just like I do!

It has been going on for years and years in West Virginia. I hear about it everyday from people who come into my work office. A lot of them are telling me they just cannot afford to get by on what they receive from SSI, disability, and comp. Some people make a lot under the table while others make very little. Small and large companies are saving thousands and thousands of dollars by doing this.

They actually need to be going after all those people who are drawing social security disability when there is nothing wrong with them. They are ok to run around town in new cars and go to the local bars but they can't work - something's wrong with this picture. They are just pure lazy low-lifes. No better than the welfare scammers!

The Social Security Administration has a fraud line if everyone would call and report people - it takes three calls on a person before they send out an investigator.

Some people that are on Social Security are declared unable to work, but they can ride a four-wheeler all day, and drag a deer for a mile, with a bad back...Laughing all the way to the bank on your taxes, and social security deductions!

Don't knock ppl for needing assistance. I am sure your family or someone in your family has used it or is now. Ppl losing jobs, economy is terrible. Ppl have too eat and feed their family. No difference in drawing unemployment when laid off. If you have pd into it I think when u need help u deserve it, as long as you are not lying about your income and where you live. I do agree ppl abuse it and ppl that really need help for a short time can't get help. And ppl that have worked all their life are entitled too SSI. Give some ppl a break and quit causing problems. That's what is wrong with the town, ppl sticking their nose where it don't belong. If you have a problem take it up with that person and not dog on innocent.

Your post shows just how ignorant you people really are . SSI is supplemental social security, a welfare program run by the individual states with funding from the federal govt. the name welfare was removed yrs ago because of the stigma and changed to SSI . It was I tended for elderly and disabled who either had no earnings. It was never intended for a replacement income and it is not " like unemployment" which is a short gap measure to help a "working" person between jobs and by the way, the worker hasn't paid crap for it, the employer not the employee pays a tax to support unemployment payments.

So all you young druggy lazy basses who think you are "entitled" to a Social security check aren't entitled to sh#t. Get off drugs and get a job!!! They need to drug test everyone who draws a free check and cut off the free loaders.

If a person has really "paid" into it, they would have a work history and be eligible for regular social security if disabled or eligible for unemployment if they are laid off. They would not need to try and get SSI!!!!'

I too have noticed that the criminal activity in the welfare system is totally out of control in Logan county. The women hide the income of their children's father, notice I did not say husbands because most of them are not married to the daddy's. They lay around and don't work and use SSI from supposedly " retarded" children to live on. All the time running around and playing ball , going to Disney, and spending the taxpayers money. They take the money intended for food for the kid and spend it on themselves. Also they are stealing huge amounts of Medicaid funds with free medical care and refusal to buy their own insurance . Just keep on "playing ball" they are cracking down and it is just a matter of time before they are caught!!!!
