Wife Of DC Lawyer Worth $1.5 Million Arrested For Taking Food Stamps, Welfare
Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | March 12, 2017 | Thomas Phippen

Helen Agbapuruonwu “fraudulently obtained public assistance in excess of $100,000 under false pretenses” police allege, and she has been charged “with felony welfare fraud and document forgery,” according to a police report.

Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, who immigrated to the U.S. from Nigeria in the 1990s, worked as an associate at Mayer Brown in D.C., according to his LinkedIn profile. A spokesman for Mayer Brown told NBC 4 that Agbapuruonwu no longer works there. Agbapuruonwu received a Paul & Daisy Soros Scholarship for New Americans, which he used to pay for law school at Ohio State University.

Court officials believe that Agbapuruonwu may have “fled the country and is somewhere in Africa,” NBC News reports.

Will playing the race card work in this case?

Chances are good they’ll try it.

Just a very tiny drop in the bucket of welfare fraud.

It’s sad, but one thing some immigrants pick up on rather quickly after arriving in the United States is how to scam the U.S. taxpayer.

This applies to those enterprising convenience store owners who end up getting busted for food stamp fraud. They’re almost all foreigners.

The first thing foreigners learn when they get here is how to game the system to maximize their take.

Bingo, and it always amazes me how quickly they learn how to do it too.

If people like them are doing it, then many millions around the country are doing it.

Check out how many people entering welfare offices around the country arrive in Escalades or BMWs.........................

Good Day,

Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am Barrister. James Etuk, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Late Engineer Patrick Creek. I came to know of you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.

Then we have this, and these are just the ones who were caught....

They don’t “learn”. They are taught by lawyers, social welfare pogues, etc.

Agbapuruonwu, the husband of this parasite, fled the US and is apparently back in Africa. signaling he’s got something to hide.

He received a Paul & Daisy Soros Scholarship for New Americans, which he used to pay for law school at Ohio State University.

They better take a look at those documents he filled out to extract money for law school.....

.....and billing vouchers for law clients......could be the reason he lost the law firm position?
