David sends us this article about Mr. Jamare Mason, who with his merry band of criminals attempted to bilk Vet and Social Security benefits from deserving recipients to the tune of nearly $2M.
Now he’s facing hard time in a Federal lockup, and is ordered to pay restitution.
Not holding my breath on that.

Man sentenced for stealing veteran, Social Security benefits

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Georgia man convicted of participating in a scheme in Florida to steal more than $1.8 million in veteran and Social Security benefits has been sentenced to six years and six months in prison.

Jamare Mason, 27, was sentenced Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale federal court, according to court records. He pleaded guilty in November to conspiring to commit bank and wire fraud. He was also ordered to pay more than $1.3 million in restitution.

From 2012 to 2017, Mason and others attempted to redirect over $1.8 million in benefits from more than 100 disabled veterans and Social Security beneficiaries, officials said. They added that the scheme resulted in the actual loss of nearly $1 million, though the federal government reimbursed the victims for the full amounts of their stolen benefits.

The group obtained the victims’ personal information and used it to fraudulently open bank accounts and prepaid debit cards in the victims’ names, prosecutors said. The conspirators also forged documents that directed the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration to deposit benefit payments into those fraudulent accounts, officials said.


Thanks, David.

According to the Department of Justice press release, the amount lost was over $1 million not under as the Yahoo! report states.

Being over a million makes sense for the amount of restitution that is being imposed.

I hope that his friends that helped in the scheme are also sentenced for the same time and restitution in total.

After all, in an ideal world, a gang that steals together pays together.



Gavin Newsom is gonna come after you for using the word “Gang”.

And this popular musical Group is gonna come after Gavin Newsom for insulting them about the usage of the word “Gang”…



Yeah, we don’t want to hurt the feelings of gangbangers. Guess they will have to rename the gang units of every police department in Commiefornia.

Curious as to if The False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) has incorporated this “technique” into some of his training philiosphies? Particulary for older employees that are about to retire.

Much like CRT, this new “executive education” initiative, could pay dividends.

There is article at American Thinker about the virtue of the Oath Keepers.

I guess the author is not bothered by all the stolen valor going on in there.


As this turd serves his sentence, may he be served the delicacies available at the BTJ&T Deli…and the whole “gang” of Cell Block C.
