A Brooklyn-based gang, the “Woo gang” got their hands on more than $4 million in COVID-19 relief cash before they were caught and charged. 11 suspects in total were charged Thursday.

The gang members boasted about the scam in a music video, the feds said. The New York Post reports the criminal complaint against them reveals the individuals used personal information, including driver’s license numbers, from 800 people to submit unemployment claims adding up to roughly $20 million.

The gang members were able to receive around $4.3 million in total from the unemployment program between March 2020 and October 2021. In addition to bragging about their successful scamming in a rap music video for the song ‘Trappin’, many of the members also “flashed stacks of the cash on social media.”

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Breon Peace said he will continue to go after gang members attempting to rip off the U.S. government. “These government programs are designed to provide financial assistance to those who are most in need during an unprecedented pandemic” said Peace.

“Unfortunately government aid programs have long been a feeding frenzy for scammers but the scale and the magnitude of the fraud in the unemployment program created by the CARES act has reached staggering levels” said Nino Perrotta, President of Sequoia Securities Group.

“Unfortunately because of the haste in implementing the government programs, they continue to lack the necessary checks and balances required in securing the programs overall integrity” added Perrotta. “With regards to recovery of these stolen assets, unless large sums of the money is in cash at the time they were arrested, or in bank accounts in the names of the alleged defendants, the process for recovery is both time consuming and very technical.”

Feds recovered messages of the suspects, Christopher Jean Pierre, who bought the identifying information of his victims, such as driver’s license numbers, for $150 each. Jean Pierre made the purchases from someone identified as “Skyscraper” on an encrypted messaging app.

Peace said “this Office and its law enforcement partners will vigorously prosecute gang members and anyone else who exploits the pandemic and steals from taxpayer-funded programs.”

    So much money was stolen from the government handouts that will never be reclaimed. My husband received a letter during that time saying that he had applied for unemployment benefits. Of course he never did and he contacted the department which had sent it to him. He never heard another word. So many scams will go unpunished because of NY’s lenient laws. It’s absolutely sickening.

    We all know the chances of one dime being recovered from this predictable scam is slim to none, with an emphasis on none. These thugs will be slapped on the wrist & made to promise not to do this again. Tsk,tsk

    Did he have to give back his Michel Jordan’s? That had to hurt?:)
    I heard they were going to give a large portion to the sisters of the poor and send one of their members to Congress. Man even belonging to a gang doesn’t protect you in this world today.

    I can’t imagine who all cheated to steal money from the covid relief… It’s in the billions, and it’s a pretty long line with the Democrats in the lead.

Shocking Video: Pfizer Director admits internal discussions to ‘mutate’ COVID, ‘preemptively develop new vaccines’

A latest video from Project Veritas may be one of the most shocking undercover investigations yet. The video unearths “Pfizer is internally discussing the possibility of mutating the Covid virus themselves in order to taylor a vaccine to sell to the public” Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe explains.

The undercover video has gone viral and already garnered nearly 19 million views. The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking Pfizer’s Director of Research and Development Jordon Trishton Walker, “Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?”

Walker responded with a smile, “well, that is not what we say to the public. No.” Walker goes on to say “don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone” obviously unaware he is being recorded.

“We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?” Walker continues. “Well one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we mutate it ourselves so we could – we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right?”

In a complete admittance of astronomical greed by the vaccine maker, Walker goes on: “So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a Pharma company mutating f**king viruses. You have to be like very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something like, you know goes everywhere.”

Walker then goes on to insinuate the coronavirus did in fact start in Wuhan:

“Which, I suspect is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. Like it makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere.”
