How Does This Happen?
- A southwest suburban man used more than 3,000 LINK cards to steal almost $1 million in government funds, purchasing "massive amounts of energy drinks and candy" and selling them to West Side stores, officials said.
Wael S. Ghosheh, 46, has been charged with theft of government property, identity theft, money laundering, unauthorized use of food stamp benefits and wire fraud, all of which are felonies, records show.
Ghosheh, of the 5500 block of West 84th Street in southwest suburban Burbank, is in Cook County Jail after appearances Wednesday and Thursday at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, during which bail was set at $50,000, records show.
The level of fraud here is astronomical. And from what we observe, hear and can deduce, barely scratches the surface of some of the crap that goes on when there is no accountability in the system, no oversight by the authorities and the watchdogs are busy licking their balls and the balls of those in power.
