Send benefits to terrorist group
Send benefits to terrorist group
Here's another sure-fire way to get the Feds on your case. First use your small business to cash other people's fraudulent unemployment benefits. Then donate the proceeds to a terrorist group.

That's what one man did between 2005 and 2007, using two supermarket stores he owned near Fresno, Calif. to launder approximately $350,000 in fraudulent unemployment checks.

He collected a transaction fee for each deal, and on two separate occasions, he agreed to send $55,000 and $80,000 to Bahrain to fund Hezbollah -- a militant group officially designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department.

The FBI was hot on his trail and arrested him before completing the $80,000 transaction.
