Military PII Stolen to Compromise Their Bank Accounts and Benefit Payments

| November 1, 2019

Not being satisfied with an honest day’s work, and with what one earns the right way, reminds me of this meme. (r/The_Donald/)

Frederick Brown was a former Army Civilian employee involved with medical records administration. He was based in Yongsan Garrison, South Korea. He provided information to others, who used this private information to steal millions.

From Fox News:

Appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Farrer in San Antonio Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments.

He admitted that between July 2014 and September 2015, he stole the personal identifying information of thousands of military members, including their names, social security numbers, dates of birth, and contact information, according to a DOJ press release.

Brown said he gave this data to a man named Robert Wayne Boling Jr., which Boling and others exploited in various ways to access Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs benefits sites and to steal millions of dollars.

Boling, a U.S. citizen, conspired with Philippines-based co-defendants — Australian citizen Allan Albert Kerr and South Korean citizen Jongmin Seok — to use the stolen information to unlawfully access benefits information online from a DOD portal, the DOJ said. The benefits information allegedly enabled the men to compromise military members’ bank accounts and veterans’ benefits payments.

This was a scheme that also involved an Australian and South Korean. Each conspiracy charge, that results in a conviction, can result in up to 20 years in prison.

Fox News has details.

I’m not concerned. My ID PII has been compromised by at least the following: DOD, Target, Blue-cross Blue Shield, BOA, Home Depot, Costco, Citibank, The VA, etc etc.


Ditto. I use cash. Can’t trace it… oh, wait.


FIRST !!!!


Or not


Nice try. Someone is off their meds this Friday. this ain’t the WOT.
Someone’s messing with us. 😀 😀 😀


Is it ever going to drop?


Patience, little jackass…. patience.


With all due respect, Ex.

Punishments need to include being covered in honey and then staked out on an anthill. For days.


What’s wrong with simple impalement, like for rapists?

Resurect Vlad the impaler from the grave and hire him to take of the shit bird.

It really grinds my gears when someone in a position of trust does something of this nature.

Naahhh! Max Sand did it right. Right by the anthill with skin slits all over and removed eyelids.

Until there is sure, swift, public, and painful punishment these types of crimes will continue. Every bit of PII on every person in this country is out there and available. Just the nature of The Beast. We are all marked, one way or another. I quit worrying about it cause there is nothing we can do.

If you go ahead and execute these lowlife scum they will not ever be able to spend their ill gotten loot, or profit from book and movie deals.
