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.

If you or a loved one have been indicted or are being investigated for social security fraud as a result of the probe announced January 7, 2014, you need to speak with competent counsel to ensure that your life is not completely turned upside down by false allegations. We at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo are experienced former prosecutors who have all worked as assistant district attorneys at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
