Anyone get away with Unemployment fraud?

I am no fraud investigator, nor am I here to bust anyone, but Im curious if anyone or anyone you know has gotten away with unemployment fraud? Meaning they were working full time and still collecting unemployment benefits? ** I have no intention of committing fraud, I am just curious how many people got away with it***

Good question bro. I don’t think anyone would say anything here even if they did lmao

I was laid off and on unemployment back in 2014. I was applying like hell and everywhere I could. The system helped me stay afloat.

Once in my life I applied for unemployment bennies. They offered me $60 because for the previous year basis, I was in school mostly, but I had worked and paid into the system quite a bit previous to that.

I didn't waste any time with that and just took a deadman's shift at IBM.

Nice try, Mr. EDD Investigator!

Me thinks the OP is looking to rationalize committing fraud by seeing if anyone else has done it.

lets just say that some i know has $4000 left on his/her claim and he/she is working fulltime, but that $4000 will help him/her out so much so he/she is almost willing to suffer the consqeuences (if its only paying the $4000 back, without jailtime or additional fees). All the "examples" they have online of people that got caught with fraud that were sentenced with 1-2 years probation and fines, their claims they "stole" were over $10,000.

Since it's covid related, they'll probably give them the max.

Mine is too. She is/was a pill popper that would get super fucked up at work and somehow turned that into a neurological disorder that got her on disability and away from the union job she'd have eventually been fired from.

There is always someone gaming the system. Keep your head down, eyes and ears open, hands busy, mouth closed and mind your own business.

I don't know what the consequences are, but they're never "just pay it back and we'll call it even".
