耍中国式小聪明 美华人老板恐面临20年监禁

美国补充营养援助计划(Supplemental Nutrition  Assistance  Program,简称SNAP),之前称为粮食券计划,是美国最重要的福利计划之一。有关于粮食券的“故事”有很多,比如充斥着欺诈丶被移民滥用丶常用于购买垃圾食品等等。但是下面这名华人老板的做法让人不禁大吃一惊,自己还面临最高20年监禁。

粮食券计划是美国最重要的福利计划之一,相关的“故事”有很多,但是这名华人老板的做法让人不禁大吃一惊。

“大陆式聪明” 华人老板恐面临20年监禁

据媒体报导,一家华人经营的美甲店允许顾客使用粮食券来支付美甲服务、店内出售的香烟及首饰等物品,并且收取两倍费用。

该华人老板5日在纽约西区的联邦法庭认罪,罪名是“未经授权使用、转让、收购和拥有联邦粮食券福利”。该罪名最高可判处20年监禁与25万美元罚款。

46岁的林杭(Hang T.Lam,以下皆音译)在纽约上州罗切斯特经营一家名叫“Young’s Nails”的美甲店,该店不出售食品,也是无权接受粮食券的福利。

纽约西区联邦助理检察官Kyle P.Rossi处理此案,他表示,门罗县(Monroe County)的社会服务部DSS于2018年4月发现,有人拿粮食券去林杭的美甲店去兑换现金,或者贩卖粮食券换取美甲服务和其它非食品物品。

而在2018年4月19日到10月1日期间,美国农业部的监察长办公室(Office of the Inspector General)的便衣五次到访林杭的美甲店,修脚、修指甲,购买香烟、珠宝,或者用粮食券来兑换现金。

当便衣使用电子福利转帐卡(SNAP EBT)来结帐时,林杭收取了双倍的费用。而在购物完成之后,林杭再去三家被批准使用粮食券权限的店内完成交易。

而这三家店名为:位于罗切斯特克林顿大道北的Tanhong  Du、位于克林顿大道南的Ocean Garden Oriental Foods Inc.以及Brighton-Henrietta Town  Line Road路的Asia Food Market(亚洲杂货店)。

2018年11月7日,执法人员持着搜查令到林杭的美甲店搜查,并查获一批粮食券的电子福利转帐卡、几十张手写的包括四位数的PIN号码与各种现金金额的便条,以及其它粮食券授权商店的电子转帐收据。

执法人员最后盘问了一些参与美甲店消费欺诈的客户,当中有八人承认他们用粮食券福利兑换现金跟购买美甲服务。

联邦检察官指出,林杭欺诈SNAP的福利总金额至少有26,000美元。她在今年3月被起诉控罪,并于9月5日认罪。法官定于今年12月16日判刑,她或将面临最高20年监禁与25万元罚款。

美国将领取福利与批准绿卡挂钩

2018年10月10日,美国国土安全部(DHS)在“联邦公报”(Federal  Affairs)上公布《拒绝入境公共负担因素》(Inadmissibility on Public Charge  Grounds)新规,首次将领取福利作为是否批准绿卡的考量因素之一。

根据新规,对本人或家人将享受美国公共援助的个体,美国政府将有更多权力限制发放绿卡给申领以下福利的人士,涉及福利项目就包括粮食券。新规只适用于申请签证或永久居留身份的人,对大部分已取得绿卡以及申请入籍的人士没有影响。

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Hang T. Lam, 46, of Rochester, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford to the unauthorized use, transfer, acquisition, and possession of USDA food stamp benefits. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who is handling the case, stated that in April 2018, the Monroe County Department of Social Services (DSS) developed information that Young’s Nails, which is owned and operated by the defendant, was trafficking in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/food stamp benefits for cash, nail services, and other non-food items. Young’s Nails does not sell food and is not authorized to accept SNAP benefits.

Between April 19, 2018, and October 1, 2018, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General conducted five undercover transactions at Young’s Nails using a SNAP Electronic Benefits (SNAP EBT) card. Purchases included nail services such as manicures and pedicures, cigarettes, jewelry, and cash. Lam charged double the cost when a SNAP EBT card was used.

When the undercover purchases were made, the defendant used the Tanhong Du Supermarket on N. Clinton Avenue in Rochester, Ocean Garden Oriental Foods Inc. on S. Clinton Avenue in Rochester, and the Asia Food Market on Brighton-Henrietta Town Line Road to process the undercover transactions. All three stores are approved to participate in the SNAP program.

On November 7, 2018, a search warrant was executed at Young’s Nails. Law enforcement officers seized SNAP EBT cards, dozens of handwritten notes containing four digit PIN numbers and various cash amounts, and SNAP EBT receipts from the Asia Food Market and other SNAP authorized stores. As a result, officers identified and interviewed SNAP clients involved in SNAP fraud with Lam at Young’s Nails. Eight of these individuals reported that they exchanged SNAP benefits for cash and nail services.

To date, approximately $26,000 dollars in fraudulent SNAP transactions executed by Lam have been identified.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, under the direction of Special Agent-in Charge Bethanne M. Dinkins; Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly; the Monroe County Department of Social Services, under the direction of Commissioner Corinda Crossdale; and the New York State Office of Inspector General, under the direction of Inspector General Letizia Tagliafierro.

Sentencing is scheduled for December 16, 2019, before Judge Wolford.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Hang T. Lam, 46, of Rochester, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with the unauthorized use, transfer, acquisition, and possession of USDA food stamp benefits.

Eight of these individuals reported that they exchanged SNAP benefits for cash and nail services.

To date, approximately $26,000 dollars in fraudulent SNAP transactions that have been executed by LAM have been identified.

The defendant made an initial appearance this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan W. Feldman and was released on conditions.

The complaint is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, under the direction of Special Agent-in Charge Bethanne M. Dinkins; Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly; the Monroe County Department of Social Services, under the direction of Commissioner Corinda Crossdale; and the New York State Office of Inspector General, under the direction of Acting Welfare Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
