9/11 NYPD and FDNY Fraud Cases
As recently reported in the New York Post, many former NYPD and FDNY employees are being targeted in a Manhattan District Attorney's Office fraud investigation concerning claims of trauma as a result of the tragic events of 9/11.
The report indicates that many recipients of social security disability pensions are allegedly living leisurely lifestyles while collecting taxpayer money. Moreover, others are being looked at as facilitating the alleged scam by submitting false paperwork.
The DA claims that many pensioners were receiving the funds under false pretenses, but there are always two sides to any story. Many targets of the probe may actually have debilitating PTSD or mental illness suffered as a result of their participation in their efforts at ground zero. Others may feel as though they have been swept up in an investigation even though they had nothing to do with any act or transaction related to the case.
