"American Dead Souls": Pentagon Officer Accused of Cheating "Fake Cadets"

29

Randolph Stanley, a 42-year-old Pentagon employee, is accused of cheating "fake cadets." He allegedly used non-existent students, students and cadets to raise allegedly $ 6,2 million in federal aid for them.

The prosecution alleges that the money was partially used to pay "ghost writers" for completing assignments for the Pentagon.



Stanley, who worked for the Defense Contracts Audit Agency (DCAA), is accused of filing millions of dollars in government aid for "fake cadets," and assignments performed on their behalf by "ghost writers." Between 2005 and 2021, he used dozens of people for illicit enrichment.

Prosecutors said $ 6,7 million in aid was directed to at least eight educational institutions, which, after deducting tuition fees, transferred $ 6,2 million to non-existent students, students and cadets. This money, in whole or in part, was pocketed by Stanley.

Some data about the personalities of the cadets (students) were actually stolen from the database, while others themselves allowed the use of personal data for a fee.

So, for more than a decade and a half, the scheme worked, which can be conventionally called "American-style dead souls."

      He hardly read Gogol, but Graham Greene and his "Our Man in Havana" - most likely. :)

        For 15 years, he involved 8 educational institutions in the scheme and stole just over 6 million ...
        No, he certainly did not read Gogol.
        If I had read it, in 15 years I would have traveled personally to several hundred educational institutions. And the bill would go to hundreds of millions.

          This is how much they found and proved. Although 400 thousand per year is a decent amount to the basic salary.

            That is why they proved that he stole "decently".
            If I stole "indecent" - 50-100 million a year, now I would not go to the bunk, but to Congress.

        And they are rubbing us something about the Vostochny cosmodrome about the fact that something was missing there, and which was actually built for many decades for our benefit. So we still have to learn from the American pros for a long time - such saws a carriage and a small cart, but they do not tear the hair on their heads from this.

          The main thing is to tell the "nelohams" about the field of miracles, that for them a personal offer to dig in the ground at night, water a hole and say "Kreks, pex, fex", because this is the main thing! And go to sleep peacefully! And in the morning a tree with gold will grow!
          This is a short course on how the USA ruling elite works with its allies and vassals.

        Tellingly, he is now 42, so he started working on this topic when he was 28.

    Oh, here it is, what's the matter, they were robbed again. But the degree needs to be raised and a more serious scenario should be turned! That's why the United States suddenly suspected Russia of stealing benefits from the Americans ...
    American experts believe that cybercriminals could steal up to half of the unemployment benefits that the US government paid its citizens over the past year. And in the United States they immediately found a "Russian trace" in these thefts. The total amount of damage amounted to $ 400 billion, and the crimes were associated with scammers from Russia (which can be without it), Nigeria and China.
