“Ripping off America” seems to be a universal pastime where “anyone” can play and get rich in the process, at the expense of the American tax payer. Whether it's welfare fraud where recipients devise a multitude of scams to steal benefits, or illegal aliens living off our generosity or perhaps doctor’s working in collusion with drug manufacturers and insurance companies ripping off our health care system through Medicare and Medicaid.

However not all scams are outwardly fraudulent, some are “clever schemes” devised as noble actions in addressing a series of global threats like ‘Climate Change” and NATO, where member nations promise to pay their fair share of their financial obligations, however seldom do, leaving America to pay the lion’s share and purposely put America at an economic disadvantage while gaming the system.

This latest incident once again simply illustrates how easy it is to take advantage of America’s generosity. Kevin Kunlay Williams, also known as Kunlay Sodipo is a Nigerian citizen living in St. Louis who migrated to America “illegally” in 1995, and was deported back to his native homeland, however, returned again in 1999 “illegally.”

Upon his return, Williams along with several other illegal aliens stole the identities of public school officials and used those stolen credentials to file more than 2,000 phony federal tax returns stealing more than $12-million in refunds

Williams was also able to swipe a number of official tax-related banking numbers used for getting refunds, and even printing and forged blank checks.

Moreover, he was also able to successfully register and vote in both federal and local elections, by fraudulently claiming that he was a U.S. citizen, and voting within 2012 and 2016 presidential elections

The scam artist was finally nabbed for mail fraud, voter fraud, and “aggravated identity theft and re-entering the country back in 1999. The 56-year-old con artist could face a life sentence for the multitudes of crimes he’s committed, mail fraud alone carries a maximum sentence of 20-years, plus 5-years for each count of voter fraud, and 10-years for reentry into the U.S. Williams will be sentenced in federal court on October 13th

Do you think scam artists like Kevin Kunlay Williams should serve long prison terms as a deterrent to others?
