Washington's unemployment insurance lost over $100 million to a Nigerian scam - But voting is fine?

It is presumed that the group of schemers likely used personal information about Washingtonian residents from previous consumer-data breaches. This writer alone has been contacted by close to a dozen people who discovered phony claims had been filed using their Social Security numbers and personal information.

According to the Seattle Times: "…among the criminal groups implicated in the fraud is a Nigerian organization known as Scattered Canary, according to a report released this week by Agari, a California-based cybersecurity firm that has tracked the African organization's activities. The group has been running scams for more than a decade, working to steal Social Security payments, student aid and disaster relief funds, among other targets, the report said."

I'm sure their mail in voting system is safe from fraud.

It's not just Washington, it's nationwide. Unemployment checks are delayed in various states due to this. Quite frankly Nigerian scam could just be the cover story. I find the timing quite interesting.

Maybe the truth is they are running out of money. Time to start up the printing presses.

Years ago ; local Washington state Seattle independent reporter: Richard Lee
Did a piece on how easy it was to change the votes buy hacking main computer. ( he has done some great work, I even wrote his name down one year for governor; he does “ who killed Kirk Cobain “ investigations )
Yes, vote counts , very easily hacked , unemployment fund gone ;blaming Nigerian hackers and pocketing the money. Meanwhile taxes go up , speeding cameras go up, speed limits dropped to make the tickets fines higher, layoffs in state jobs....
