‘Obama Money’ Rumor Has People Lining Up In NYC...Again

‘Obama Money’ Rumor Has People Lining Up In NYC...Again

Remember in the fall of 2009 when thousands turned out in Michigan try and get free “Obama money?” Well, it’s happened again — but this time it could be a scam.

Responding to a local rumor, people are standing in line for hours, turning over valuable personal information and expecting to receive a government handout in New York City. If this sounds familiar, it is. Back in the fall of 2009, thousands of people stood in line in Michigan expecting to be given some Obama money. It never arrived.

Glenn Beck reported about it on his Fox News show back then:

Fast forward two-and-a-half years. This time, people in NYC are lining up because they heard that people were getting a debit card loaded with as much as $1,000 of stimulus money. However, based on the latest information, there is no money to be given away. And yet people continue to line up and turn over their sensitive, personal information.

E & M Multi-Services is a tax preparation service that operates out of the back of a “dollar store” in the Fordham section of the Bronx. The company is reportedly collecting copies of Social Security cards, state ID cards and in exchange people are given a debit card from First California Bank. One small problem with this program — the cards are not loaded with $1,000 — not from Obama or anyone. Although, at least one person on the scene believed that the card would contain funds from President Obama:

“They said it was money from Obama.”

Sarah Wallace of ABC7 in New York visited the location and filed this report:

Considering the massive problem of identity theft, handing over your Social Security card, state issued ID cards and other personal information to a business housed in the back of a dollar store is probably not a good idea.

First California Bank has added a disclaimer about the E&M Multi Services to their phone message. The bank is telling customers that any cards issued via E&M have been frozen due to a fraud investigation.

This is what this nation has become. The Obama deconstruction of the country he has always hated continues unabated.

Riddle: Why is Obama Money like “Free” Government Cheese?

Because it’s The Chicago Whey.

This man's gesture of supplication to Obama as his limo rumbles by personifies the liberal dream... the people of a once-great nation reduced to begging.

When there’s a whisper of 0bama Money they step in line to fetch it. Big opportunity to pull a version of the Nigerian scam on them.

I’m gonna work EXTRA hard to finance Obama’s giveaways!
It’s wonderful that BHO can find such worthy recipients for my tax dollars!
After all, I would just waste my earnings on shoes and clothes for my kids!

DO they want to file federal returns for these people, claim the earned income credit, keep some cash as prep fees, then give the remainder to the sucker? I don’t know how it works, but is it possible for someone who didn’t file last year to file late (with a penalty, of course) and still get a refund? Because I believe a huge portion of poor people don’t even file, and this could be quite a scam.

How would one go about spreading these rumors that this was taking place? I think it would be a great guerrilla warfare tool, against the libs, to generate a buzz on the streets and have these people turn out in force, only to have them be told there is no free government money to be had.

Think of the media coverage, as these people walk away disappointed; eventually turning angry when they don’t get their fair share of obama’s stash.

I recall reading about Lincoln's visit to Richmond on April 4, 1865. When a black man groveled at his feet in supplication, Lincoln ordered him to his feet, telling him his behavoir was unbecoming of the citizen of a free republic.

At least that man had something to be grateful for. And the current president accepts groveling as his due.

How would one go about spreading these rumors that this was taking place?

If I were of the mind to do this, I'd get a plain vanilla envelope, stuff about $100 in it (assorted bills) and hand it out to a passerby and say "This is my last one, we will return tomorrow to pass out envelopes of 'Obama Money', and these envelopes will have more cash. We will be at the corner of ...... at 10am and pass these out until they are gone.".

Word will spread.

I know one place where all kinds of free money and free goods are given away to people who don't deserve it and you don't even need to be a citizen

It's called MASSACHUSETTS and sadly I live there


Boston Herald 4/11/12:"A convicted drug dealer — who cops said wanted to use cash from his taxpayer-funded EBT card to post bail — is the new face of welfare abuse, according to tough-minded lawmakers who are pushing the reform-resistant Patrick administration for a crackdown."

Digital Journal, Jan 2012:
>>Officer Fountain observed a woman purchase 18 12-packs of soda and pay with a state-issued EBT card. After making the purchase she went to redeem the cans for cash. “At that point she started ripping open the cases of soda she purchased and started putting the full cans right into the machine, which caused severe damage to the machine,” said Lynn Police Lt. Chris Kelly, reported CBS News.

Great minds think alike. Setting these things up and pissing off Obama voters would really be fun. Not actually taking any info, just telling people on social media to show up at a certain place and time for free Obama money.

Set this scam up in major cities across the country on election day. See who has the longer lines, the scam or the polling place?

This is just a theoretical question.
