‘Obama Money’ Rumor Has People Lining Up In NYC… Again
The Blaze ^ | 04-17-12 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 04/17/2012 9:28:44 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA

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:

(Video at clip. Runs about 2 minutes.)

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.”

These dopes won't bother to stand in line to get a job, but a rumor of free govt' cash gets them off the couch. Looks like the Obummers plans for full dependency on handouts is going well. I hope all these losers get ripped off by these scam artists. They deserve it.

never ever underestimate the idiotic- especially when it comes to elections- They simply can NOT be trusted to do what is right for the country- and hte left knows this and WILL exploit their lack of common sense

[[Looks like the Obummers plans for full dependency on handouts is going well. ]]

Precisely-

[[I hope all these losers get ripped off by these scam artists. They deserve it.]]

Hopefully they won’t have any money left over to feed their crack and heroine habits

We need to start a rumor like this on election day. Come up with an address fifty miles outside New York, Chicago, L.A, Philly, and San Francisco.

Maybe these con artists can apply for stimulus money. Their scam is actually a program to clean people up in the hood.

Speaking of voting. If they have the ID to show these people for free money, then they can certainly show an ID to vote.

This has been tried in NY, OH, and in Detroit. It would be funny to pull it off as a prank in Atlanta, Alabama, or Mississippi.

Create some “official” flyers that would be distributed to the diversity crowd on the sidewalks, set up a website that looks “official” where you’d register your name and other info including a receipt you receive and print out to show when you go and pick up your Obama money, name a check cashing place where the Obama money distribution center and it’s address, do man on the street video interviews with those who are in line ready to get their free money, and then create a short documentary about it showing how the welfare state of America has created such an entitlement mentality and post to GoogTube.

You could contrast that with a “job fair” held in the same area using the same method for marketing the “event” and add that in to the documentary.

Others have posted this before me, but I would say go for the “Come here for FREE money!” line, and have the information collectors be undercover INS agents.

Its true what they say, its hard work getting out of work.

Just like Gingrich said, too. In the 99 weeks folks were unemployed they could have earned an asscociates degree...

Any truth to the rumor that Solyndra executives were at the front of the line?
