Six additional Lakewood residents were charged with welfare fraud, prosecutors announced Thursday, the third group of people from the town to face charges in two weeks.

The investigations were initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Red Bank Office and the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller, Medicaid Fraud Division, and were expanded to include the US Social Security Administration, New Jersey Department of the Treasury, Office of Criminal Investigation, and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office’s Economic Crimes Unit. All were charged with third degree theft by deception. Those charged included:

  • Eliezer, 33, and Elkie, 31, Sorotzkin of West Spruce Street for allegedly wrongfully collected approximately $74,960 in Medicaid benefits between January 2011 and December 2013.
  • Samuel, 45, and Esther, 44, Serhofer of Whispering Pines Lane for allegedly wrongfully collecting approximately $72,685 in Medicaid benefits between January 2009 and December 2013.
  • Yisroel, 37, and Rachel, 34, Merkin of Hermosa Drive for allegedly wrongfully collecting approximately $70,557.51 in Medicaid, SNAP, and HEAP benefits between January 2011 and December 2014.
  • Jerome Menchel, 33, and Mottel Friedman, 30, of Pressburg Lane for allegedly wrongfully collecting $63,839 in Medicaid and SNAP benefits between January 2011 and July 2014.
  • Tzvi, 35, and Estee, 34, Braun of Ridge Avenue for allegedly wrongfully collecting $62,746.74 in Medicaid, HEAP, and CICRF benefits between January 2009 and December 2013.
  • Moshe, 30, and Nechama, 27, Hirschmann of Emmanuel Drive for allegedly wrongfully collecting $53,418.39 in Medicaid and SNAP benefits between January 2011 and December 2015.

According to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, the defendants are all alleged to have misrepresented their income, declaring amounts that were low enough to receive the various programs’ benefits, when in fact their income was too high to qualify.

“The investigations revealed that the defendants received income from numerous sources that they failed to disclose on required program applications,” said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office. “As a result, they received benefits that they were not entitled to under these programs for themselves or family members.”

The Ocean County Prosecutors Office is prosecuting the arrested individuals at the state level. This is the third round of arrests is a massive fraud investigation that has centered on Lakewood’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

Photos of the defendants were not available. They were not listed as inmates at the Ocean County Jail.

    Keep it going. Lots more arrests to be made.

    What an amazing development. How could this be going on for all this time, without the approval of their rabbis. We all know that the hasidic won’t do anything, from what they eat, to what they wear or when they have sex, to when they can touch a door handle. This was known to everyone and it had never gotten around to their rabbis? Give me a break. No one is that naive. The first one arrested was a rabbi, anyway. These facts leads us to conclude that it was an approved method of stealing, coming down from their leaders. Let’s not be politically correct here. These people follow the leader. The government should investigate all their rabbis and the Vaad, for incitement to theft.

    • Mark Story Jenks

      You’re absolutely correct. When it comes to playing the system, they truly have a “mob mentality”.

      • KaayC

        A little Tony Soprano action on them will show em what mob action is about. Memba that scene in the motel? Oye leave the gun take the cannoli.

  • Mark Story Jenks

    Just as I wrote here when the first round of arrests were made, and I read about it here on Brick Shorebeat: This is just the tip of the iceberg!
    I am NOT antisemitic, I DO NOT hate any people based on their religion, skin color (or lack thereof) and/or country of origin.
    But I will tell you who I DO HATE, and that is conniving thieving bastards!
    They know every loophole to sponge off the rest of society.
    They have regular meetings and get-togethers to share information on which federal, state and county assistant programs they can suck off of and abuse.
    It has been going on for decades! And certain politicians have known about it and just accepted it as business as usual.
    The only reason it’s come to a head, is because that cults population has swelled to unimaginable numbers, and some of the thieves got sloppy about trying to hide it.
    The “chosen people” really didn’t think any of them would get in hot water over it, because it has been going on for decades.
    This is one reason why many reasonable, law abiding citizens do grow to have a grudge against “THEM”.

    • ed

      you voice the thoughts of many!!

    • Joe D

      Jenks, Who are THEM !

      There are approx 70,000 Orthodox Living in the Lakewood area.
      Do you mean 14 OF them, or do you mean 70,000 of THEM.

      Its the equivalent of the 9 people [Just guessing.. prob many more] arrested in Brick on Drug charges make all the Brick/Jenks Drug pushers ???

      Regardless, these comments remind me of the good ol’ days, when I was a child listening to the “Grown ups” spew their unfiltered hate.

      Bottom line, the Orthodox are similar to any other group around these parts, with the exception of violence.

      We good ol guys can teach them a thing or 2 about beating our spouses when we get inebriated.

      • Late Night Comedian

        You got that right. Many Brick residents are drug pushers that drink and beat their wives.

      • KojiSky

        Everything you have written on this entire comment thread seems to indicate you are butt-hurt and sensitive. Although I totally appreciate your clarification between who is Orthodox and and who is Hasidic — which seems to indicate you, specifically, have a preference for one over another (prejudiced much?), you are missing the point of guilt. Yes, these people will have their days in court to prove their innocence, but the evidence will convict them, along with the fact that they’ve been warned for a least 2 years. And to the point made by someone else about Rabbis being involved, a person doesn’t have to be a brain surgeon to connect the dots.

        You can troll every single comment and reply on this whole thread with the same story you keep repeating. It does not change the facts. People don’t have to be bigoted to see dishonesty. And your claim of overpayment for houses indicating that the buyers are the victims is just plain ludicrous. Anyone with even minimum intelligence can figure out the goal of the overpayments.

        Sorry but playing innocent and dumb just doesn’t wash any longer. But look at it this way: the very same people who scammed the government out of monetary assistance for food, medical care and heating will now get those very same services at zero cost to them because prisons do serve meals, do have doctors and nurses and likely keep the cells and common areas at a comfortable temperature.

      • KaayC

        Idk I would like to think you are right but never underestimate the power of Rabinowitz, Rabinowitz and Rabinowitz three vicious Jews who will pick our bones clean… (Archie Bunker) They will walk and we will get locked up for hate crimes if Brian Mc has his way.

      • KaayC

        I had a catchy comeback but don’t want to get banned from Shorebeat.

      • acappy

        Joe D So when a man does not agree to grant his wife a “get”, what happens? There are plenty of bad seeds to go around in every denomination. No one sector has superiority over another. Going into the pockets of another is not taken lightly, and the backlash has to be expected. The diversion is not palatable.

      • Frederick Muhlbauer

        Joe Shut up and sit down jerk

    • Brian Mcfolan

      Have you ever been to any of these meetings please I beg you tell me where I can sign up

      • acappy

        You can’t. A man in Lakewood wanted to get his community of disadvantaged people to gather too. But these people do not have the a common allegiance nor confidential income diversion channels.

    • acappy

      The “meetings” were not open to the general public, who contribute the tax dollars to each program that has been fraudulently obtained?

    • Frederick Muhlbauer

      Me too Couldn’t agree more

  • Steven

    Orthodox Jews being dishonest? What are the odds? ( sarcasm) But lets face it folks, anyone who has had any dealings with them knows how they are societal misfits and how dishonest they are, especially to non-Jews.

    • Frederick Muhlbauer

      50/50 I suppose maybe higher

  • Brian Mcfolan

    GUYS you just cant make ANti Semitic comments and preface it with the comment ” I am not an anti semite” Who are you trying to convince that your not a hater? All anti semites start with that line….. Look in the mirror dont kid yourself your not an anti semite, or racist, or bigot. Your a self hating HUMAN. Bottom of the food chain!

    • sarla ake

      I personally know one of these people and I know firsthand that he is completely innocent. No human being should ever be torn away in front of their kids unless he is guilty. Please look beneath the surface to the human pain and suffering that people are enduring when they are in fact innocent. Its very easy to throw the “jews cheat and steal” card. its much harder, but morally truthful to look beneath the surface and find the truth.

      • Brian Mcfolan

        I cant say I know these people. But yes I have done business with some jewish people after meeting one of them when he stopped to help me on the side of the road after I was in an accident (he was an EMT and gave me medical care) even though I was not jewish. I have since met many of them and have ONLY had wonderful experience. THe sad thing is that growing up and before actually meeting them I was also “brainwashed by the society I live in” that they are evil and crooks. Its wrong and it was ignorant of me. I am proud today to say that I have orthodox religious friends.

      • Late Night Comedian

        Every single Lakewood hasidic that I have done business with in the last 20 years has tried to avoid paying the sales tax. Every single one!

      • Brian Mcfolan

        Im sure I also wouldn’t want to pay sales taxes after listening to one of your comedy performances. Actually I probably wouldn’t want to pay you at all!!

      • Late Night Comedian

        There once was a man named Mcfolan,.
        He split open his britches while bowlin.
        As he said with a grin,
        While he grabbed the 10 pin,
        I hope this will fill my butt hole in!

    Now that was hateful.. Im sure your a great human being. I am also sure that you think I am a hater and you are angry right now ” How dare I defend “THEM” write. Well last I checked we all put our pants on the same way! The funny thing is the media and the ones reading here will gladly throw ALL the jews under the bus the first opportunity they have and write hateful things as in “they are all dishonest” Especially when they do business with us” I Mean the quotes can go on and on. The funny thing is I am sure that this is all written by ignorant people who have NEVER done business with them and or seen the ir good deeds towards HUMAN KIND not just towards thei own kind. These are the same people who have started the blood libels, killing, and the rumors about Horns. I bet most of you have never seen a real live jew. Nevertheless convince yourselves that you are loving people …. Shame on all of you. Reveling in other peoples misery. lumping all jews into one category. Not believing in the American mantra of “innocent until proven guilty!! I am ashamed to for all non jews myself included. Hate on this comment . But the truth is the more hate I get the more you all know I am right. The truth truly always hurts!!

You must be one of the leeches that defend them. Can’t blame you, that’s all you got left…religion doesn’t seen to guide these smell crooks…I’m happy! Yay!!

        Go back on your Meds, you old fool.

        Gosh, they caught the Cheats, let them have their day in court, if they are guilty they should pay for it.

        Why the viscous sub human sentiments coming from you seasoned citizens ?

        Why are you so personally hyped ?

        Why are you painting an entire community [of over 70,000] with the actions of a few.

        Hey, Please dont forget to change your diaper when you go play bingo.

      • Frederick Muhlbauer

      • KaayC

      • Peter Chapurtinov

        Good one….must be the inbreeding….the mind becomes judgemental…they cant help it. Next generation is worse.

      • Brian Mcfolan

        Peter must have learned a new word! “Inbreeding” here I’ll define it for you its what you did by marrying your sister. “Redneck”

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Would be nice to actually see one of the “Greedy” actually work and be a productive citizen to the diverse town of Lakewood….

  • Walter Matt Marvin

    They sure go out of their way to be bad neighbors!

    • Joe D

      Walter/Matt/Marvin, Please explain what you mean.

      Are you referring to Orthodox people overpaying eager sellers of private homes in Ocean County ???

      Besides for being taken to the Cleaners by the Sellers, WHAT IN THE HECK IS WRONG WITH THAT !

      Is having an ugly mustache make YOU a bad neighbor.

      I know, you just found it convenient to pile on here by making this brilliant claim.

      The weird thing, you are probably dead jealous of your neighbors whom cashed in by selling their homes to the orthodox and making a killing in the process.

      Keep it up Loser !

      • Frederick Muhlbauer

        Joe D you sure are a pathetic joke SON

      Auntie Semite is out with Uncle Moshe to “ghet” Gefilte and grape juice. You will know them by their shopping cart. Get the little baby buggy bumpers and horn before you leave.

  • Brian Mcfolan

    The funny thing here is that Lakewood pays more taxes than any other township, in sales tax and property tax. They employ hundreds of thousand employees jewish and non jewish , giving them benefits and perks and they treat their employees like human beings. On top of that they DO NOT utilize the public school system (so their property taxes that they DO pay goes towards your ungrateful ***). Additionaly they have an endless array of volunteer and non for profit charitable organizations, a huge network of humanitarian aid All of this is being funded privately and not with government funds…. Look we all have problems but to tell me this isn’t about antisemitism. Common get off your high horses

    • Late Night Comedian

      They employ hundreds of thousands?
      Lol. Show me some stats for these contrived claims you are spouting off.
      Numbers please.

      • Brian Mcfolan

        What you guys are saying really scares me because if we lump all Jews and define thems as horrible and frauds . What does that make me? If I have to take responsibility for all Christions actions then I am a murdering drug dealing rapist!!! Open the news just this week in NJ how many shootings , drug arrest, drug overdoses, rapes where done by NOn Jews. Are we all now defined by the action of others in our faith?? (By the way that one fear you don’t have to worry about. Never heard of murder rapenetc in Lakewood by the orthodox) ..

      • KaayC

        Point taken. Don’t think those ole rabbis so innocent when it comes to hitting on women though. Catholic guilt much?

      • Peter Chapurtinov

        video was filmed from overhead in the office of the principal, Rabbi Moshe Hersh Klein. One snippet shows Rabbi Klein, the gray-bearded principal of the yeshiva’s third, fourth and fifth grades, his legs around a pupil who appears to be about 8, patting the boy and kissing his cheeks, and rocking him for several seconds.

      • Brian Mcfolan

        Wow so he found again 10 to 15 people so called rabbis…….. And he paints an entire population…. That makes me murdering rapist drug dealing pedophile if we paint the entire Christian religion because of more than a few way more then the 15 – 20 people you qouted…..

      • Late Night Comedian

        The vast majority of WW2 era Germans or even Nazi’s, never killed anyone or murdered innocent people in concentration camps, but we all know that the Nazis as an organized group were generally evil scumbags and murderers.
        There were innocent German mothers and fathers and children Nazi members who never committed a crime.
        Do we seperate them from the killers when we talk about Nazis? No we don’t.
        People generalize about the Lakewood people just as history generalizes about all Germans in the Nazi party of WW2

        rabbis, teachers and camp counselors, among them — had been arrested by the authorities in Brooklyn. Perhaps the best-known case centered on Nehemya Weberman, an unlicensed 54-year-old therapist, who was convicted in state court in December 2012 of repeatedly abusing a young girl who sought his counseling starting when she was 12, groping her and forcing her to perform oral sex.

      • Peter Chapurtinov

        The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said Monday that it is trying to reach a plea bargain with the rabbi from East Windsor accused of committing sex crimes against two boys under 18 years old.

        Menachem A. Chinn, a teacher at Shalom Torah Academy in Monmouth County, is charged with sexual assaulting the alleged victims, one of whom was 12 years old at the time, and with endangering the welfare of a child. The crimes occurred as far back as 2010, but were reported to law enforcement authorities only recently

        Satmar Hasidim fundamentalist branch of Orthodox Judaism, Nuchem designs and repairs mikvahs in compliance with Torah Law. The mikvah is a ritual Jewish bathhouse used for purification. Devout Jews are required to cleanse themselves in the mikvah on a variety of occasions: Women must visit following menstruation, and men have to make an appearance before the High Holidays, such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Many of the devout also purify themselves before and after the act of sex and before the Sabbath.

        On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim. “I opened a door that entered into a schvitz,” he told me. “Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy.”

        The Orthodox Jewish community in Lakewood suffered an embarrassment in 2015 when a prominent rabbi, Mendel Epstein, was convicted along with two others of conspiracy in a scheme to torture husbands until they granted their wives divorces. Epstein, who specialized in religious divorces, was convicted in federal court of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.

    It’s also a fact that a property bought decades ago for a paltry sum can now be sold for millions in areas where the Orthodox population is growing. And yet, those who are taking advantage of these opportunities are often the first and the loudest to complain about the orthodox community. At the end of the day, the economic boon to the area is indisputable and benefits everyone in one way or another. Ohh wait now we are going to hear from the “non anti semites” how this is not true……..

    • KaayC

      Sorry not content with the sheer volume of the crowds the community creates, getting held up in traffic, vehicular and human – lines in retail stores while they return 39 cell phones, last season’s clothing without tags and receipt or give the attendant in Marshalls a hard time because a husband wants to accompany his wife into the ladies’ fitting room. I dont like the rudeness I encounter when people refuse to step or stand to a side in stores or the park I have frequented for thirty years, nor do I enjoy being run off the road by their old banger group-owned, junk Kars for Kids vehicles. I am tired of hearing their whining brat could be messiah children wreaking havoc when I run my errands whilst their parents remain oblivious knocking people aside with shopping carts striding ten or twelve abreast and in a hurry in Costco. I do not like when my teen-aged daughter is given a hard time over their need to purchase a beach badge like everyone else at her job at the beach in Bayhead. I do not want to be dictated to as to when I can take a swim or sell my home. These insinuations do not profit but detract from our way of life. These behaviours do not comprise those of good neighbors to their fellow human beings. I could care less what wig hat, fur hat or asshat they choose to wear, what god or goddess they choose to worship. It is about the behaviours. So far, not so good by many. Perhaps a charm school is in order.

      • Brian Mcfolan

        You sure it was 39 phones i heard it was 46

      • KaayC

        Haha you jest, but it happened and dozens of people were held up as the store management had to check every box for usage, damage etc. See if you still have jokes after reading this:

        Yes! There is litigation still pending on the first issue and the second issue was widely discussed here on “Shorebeat” Re: to Toms River homeowners being harassed to sell to Schtickle pioneers.

    • Joe D

      Brian,
      You seem to have much pent up frustration boiling within you for a very long time.
      I will try not to confuse you with the facts.
      I have had many dealings over the past 22 years with a variety of members from the Lakewood Orthodox community. So i have a little more knowledge that goes beyond ” Getting Bumped In Costco” or some other petty stereotypes that you made up.
      1. 90 % of the Orthodox are NOT Hassidik.
      2. By and Large they are very honest and Polite.
      3. Many have large families. [most of those families were almost wiped out by your Idol- Adolph Hitler not that long ago].
      4. Any bearded fellow is called a “Rabbi” by the Media.

      Of course there are crooks among them, as in any large group of people.

      The Jew haters will always find a reason to twist anything as a reason to keep hating them.

      ” Getting Bumped in Costco” Really ???
      If I had to guess, this is how it may have went down.

      A Mother with 2 or 3 Children coming down the Aisle ahead of you.
      Your Hateful mind starts thinking… Why do i have to see these cursed people wherever i go !
      I cant stand Jewish people !
      Why must they have so many children !
      They will probably “Bump” in to me !

      Sure enough, the mother stops her wagon, to answer her little brood’s question.

      While A NORMAL person would react positively, Brian McFolan sick mind says “You see- They Bumped in to me”

      Once a hater, always a hater.

      Your ilk just like the Nazis would always manufacture a reason to keep hating.

      So

      Brian and the Rest of you Hateful misfits.
      KEEP ON HATING.

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Without money the Hasidics are destroyed… it is the basis of their existence..

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Even going to a Walmarts the Hasidics are rude and obnoxious. Purposely cut you in line and don’t even blink an eye. They drive like blind drunk people on a mission…I would nice at least one time have a good experience with a Hasidic….unfortunately that’s never going to happen. Each generation gets worse and greedier…I’d like to see one join the military services….But that’s never going to happen, they are too smart planing how to avoid that as well..Yes they are smart UNTILL you get caught…

  • Joe D

    Guys,

    There are approx 70,000 Orthodox Living in the Lakewood area.
    Do you mean 14 OF them, or do you mean 70,000 of THEM.

    Its the equivalent of the 9 people [Just guessing.. prob many more] arrested in Brick on Drug charges make all the Brick Drug pushers ???

    Regardless, these comments remind me of the good ol’ days, when I was a child listening to the “Grown ups” spew their unfiltered hate.

    Bottom line, the Orthodox are similar to any other group around these parts, with the exception of violence.

    We good ol guys can teach them a thing or 2 about beating our spouses when we get inebriated.

    • Peter Chapurtinov

      Similar? Don’t think so…..we’re not inbreed…

    • KaayC

      Joe D I think your wifey can kick your Sass.

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Would be nice with all that stolen money they buy some soap….

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    They walk or run around Lakewood like Zombies. They even look like Zombies…Could be inbreeding to keep “the” money in family each generation…

    • Joe D

      Peter Charpurtinov,
      You must have some Life.
      Why would a guy [You] from Elkton Maryland get so involved in Jersey shore matters.
      Did Linda put you in dog housse ?

      Just saying.

      • Peter Chapurtinov

        Trolling me? You must have some life….Try doing something constructive .Your actions are a byproduct of inbreeding..

  • Joe D

    Response to Brian, and the rest of you misfits.
    You seem to have much pent up frustration boiling within you for a very long time.
    I will try not to confuse you with the facts.
    I have had many dealings over the past 22 years with a variety of members from the Lakewood Orthodox community. So i have a little more knowledge that goes beyond ” Getting Bumped In Costco” or some other petty stereotypes that you made up.
    1. 90 % of the Orthodox are NOT Hassidik.
    2. By and Large they are very honest and Polite.
    3. Many have large families. [most of those families were almost wiped out by your Idol- Adolph Hitler not that long ago].
    4. Any bearded fellow is called a “Rabbi” by the Media.

    Of course there are crooks among them, as in any large group of people.

    The Jew haters will always find a reason to twist anything as a reason to keep hating them.

    ” Getting Bumped in Costco” Really ???
    If I had to guess, this is how it may have went down.

    A Mother with 2 or 3 Children coming down the Aisle ahead of you.
    Your Hateful mind starts thinking… Why do i have to see these cursed people wherever i go !
    I cant stand Jewish people !
    Why must they have so many children !
    They will probably “Bump” in to me !

    Sure enough, the mother stops her wagon, to answer her little brood’s question.

    While A NORMAL person would react positively, Brian McFolan sick mind says “You see- They Bumped in to me”

    Once a hater, always a hater.

    Your ilk just like the Nazis would always manufacture a reason to keep hating.

    So

    Brian and the Rest of you Hateful misfits.
    KEEP ON HATING.

    It may lower your Blood Pressure.

    • Brian Mcfolan

      Though Joe D misread my posts I must concur with him!!

    • KaayC

      No that would be me, not Brian. I remarked on that. Not a hater, Rather than a thousand curses upon your house I wish you one Friday in Costco right before sundown and Schabatt. You will beg a thousand curses rather than repeat the process. No mother and a brood, rather a tribe of dozens in need of basic physics, Group Dynamics and kinesiology training. Hint: they drive their shopping carts much like their “kars”. You will need bumpers and a horn with that crew.

      Nonsense

    • acappy

      Joe D The “bearded” fellow must have represented himself as a Rabbi on documents for tax exemptions, income tax returns, or on documents filed for the programs in question. I treated a few Holocaust survivors for cancer. They were the kindest people that I had been fortunate enough to meet. They held no grudge against society, NOR did they ever give a hint of an attitude of being owned anything by society/taxpayers. I also did volunteer work in North Edison public schools. The Jewish population was generally of affluence and the giving that they extended was to benefit all children. The events that have unfolded are disheartening and disturbing, to say the least.

  • JK

    Guys, both Joe D and Brian McFolan joined the Shorebeat YESTERDAY, and have piled up nearly 20 posts over the course of ONE DAY trying to disprove these notions about the Lakewood community. The names were obviously picked to look like they were coming from the Goyem, but I’m pretty certain these are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Another fine example of Lakewood-community misrepresentation, deception and fraud.

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    In the last two days, hundreds of residents called township leaders asking how they can avoid arrest or get amnesty related to an alleged public-assistance fraud scheme that could stretch into the millions of dollars, according to one law enforcement with knowledge of the ongoing probes. Just the tip of the iceberg!!!

    • Frederick Muhlbauer

      They shouldn’t give a single one amnesty What message would that send Lock em all up Seize their assets please

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    You want a real and true answer what people think about the Hasidic in Lakewood? Ask any resident living in Lakewood and surrounding areas and you’ll hear the truth. Shame on them for stealing to profit themselves lavishly and having the truly needy who desperately can use the assistance….Regular people see this and are disgusted….

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Authorities have said more arrests will be made, and that additional charges including tax offenses may be filed against some of the defendants already charged.
    “We are sending a message to this community that the party is over,” one law enforcement source told The Star-Ledger, adding that the investigation is “far from over.”

    • KaayC

      Amen, to that and again, kudos to our law enforcement. We have to be careful to hold the judiciary accountable now though.

  • sarla ake

    I know a little girl whose innocent parents were arrested because of a quasi-witch hunt. Her father is accused of personally taking government money. He did not. She cant sleep at night. She thinks her parents are going to be dragged away again. She is not laughing.

    • Peter Chapurtinov

      Fake news….prove it

    • acappy

      sarla ake Children are innocent victims. If the father is guilty, the burden is on him. It appears that the crack down has fallen upon the big players first. Any family with deemed income and goods in one household (all that bed down in a household or call it home) into 6 digits are major players. Deeming means the value of goods, cash, or payments made on behalf of a household member, which you are obligated to report. I doubt that many people are laughing, at all. I find nothing laughable about any of it. I find it horrific knowing physically disabled people draining all personal assets including their home that cannot get help living on Social Security income only, which they paid into. Charges cannot be accepted by the Prosecutor unless there is significant evidence or they would be wasting tax payers dollars too. You cannot count on a loop hole knot to be secure when it comes to needs based programs. Consider that the laughers and accused may be proportionate ratios: the accused transgressors in the taxpayers pockets to the entire population of Lakewood; And antisemites to the entire population of NJ. Neither being condoned.

  • acappy

    Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund was even tapped into. How low can you go? I presume Hurricane Sandy’s Homebuyer Program was also hit…50k down payment grant. A close look at the first recipients and gifting to help qualify along with tax returns would be interesting. Yes, there is likely not one program that has been fraudulently obtained given the information on the criminals “MO” thus far. Income tax evasion is quite obvious and the cost on taxpayers is incredible. Pandora’s Box has been opened. Are all tax exempt Real Estate properties open to the general public? Then there was this: COURT RULES THAT CHRISTIE ADMINISTRATION’S $11 MILLION+ GRANT TO RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS VIOLATED NJ CONSTITUTION! The ACLU of New Jersey, national ACLU, and Americans United for Separation of Church and State successfully challenged New Jersey’s grants of $10.6 million to Beth Medrash Govoha, an Orthodox Jewish yeshiva in Lakewood, and $645,323 to Princeton Theological Seminary. (10.6 MILLION to one yeshiva…We needed court rulings for this?) These programs need an overhaul! People with permanent physical disabilities cannot qualify for many programs if they are on SSD. The individual and family suffering is horrendous for those w/ limited means and lack Medicaid. (FYI…If you have Medicare…partial coverages, you cannot get Medicaid..full coverage.) 10.6 million dollars from Christie…Their homes should be tax exempt with that gross sum of money! It is not like there is a tightly knit community of prosperous disabled people possessing luxury homes to rent to each other with an agreement at Fair Market Rent with a Section 8 voucher to cover it all (with the exception of $69/month as per a fellow that knocked on my door looking to buy a neighboring home to rent that attends those referenced “meetings”)… You CAN own multiple homes, and not only rent under Section 8 but actually receive Section 8 too…if you hide income, have alias’/Corp./LLC’s to your advantage, and know the loop holes in a program meant for those truly in need.

    • KaayC

      Well that is also a flaw in the system that doesn’t screen people adequately. We need to demand change.

      • acappy

        Those that have scammed the system and have been charged must have had advisors that have dissected the loop holes. This has to have been a practice for a very long time for them to have been so confident. Medicaid eligibility puts them into Federal hands. This was not an oversight or an ignorant error on their part. Overhaul on needs based programs would be a job for a task force! Some are Federally based, some state or state modified. The divisions themselves, such as DCA, would be a good resource given their knowledge on their programs. They know the massive luxury homes and who is privileged to rent them and who is not under Section 8 or SRAP. Their hands have been tied.

      • KaayC

        Gee you appear to know a lot on the topic Cap. I am all for a task force or whatever it takes for true justice to prevail. I get it where mid-level workers are often placed in situations where their hands are tied, but don’t get why wasn’t there a whistleblower? Or, maybe there was! Not judging anyone here except the entire system that stinks to high heaven for allowing this to happen. This gives the “less government” people all the ammo they need to point to bad programs where innocent and in-need people will get hurt because of these demonic evil doers.

      • acappy

        KaayC, I have had many in my ear when I spoke of my admiration with Lakewood’s religiously devoted people in past years. Sadly, implications are not favorable. Divisions wanted a whistleblower due to extensive repetitive practices. Their hands were tied: Suspicion vs. proof. Proof has subsequently been revealed. I also heard of the “meetings” held by a closed group. A fellow wanted to do the same to help his disadvantaged community that are absent of means to lucratively help each other (LLC’s/Corp/Alias’, tax exempt facilities, variety of significant means of compensation other than a paycheck.) The IRS should follow the whole trail…right down to the little guy at the bottom of the totem pole. Strangely, one at the bottom of the totem pole came to my door asking about a house he wants to buy, with “Section 8 paying the mortgage”. Unknowingly, perhaps due to an impairment, he revealed too much including…advisors…his lucrative business…attitudes on non-disclosures…interpretation of household income…rent under Section 8 is only $69/month so you don’t have to collect it from renters…all of which he truly thought was common practice out of his community. The indicators were that he was in a Section 8 rental himself. I wondered how would he get a down payment or a mortgage based in income tax returns. That raises red flags. Defensive arguments over educational costs with benefit fraud indicates a mindset leading to abuse of our system. A 50k wage earner choosing to pay 40k in tuition’s made an individual choice and is NOT indigent. Follow the trail of enrollment households and government assistance. Working for compensation for enrollment paid from another source? You are working for personal gain, it is income first. If an applicant does not disclose other means of compensation, the division workers are not in a position to prove otherwise. There are people on SSD that; are not able bodied, Veterans who served OUR country, widows/widowers alone & up in age, people w/ horrible trajedies, disadvantaged w/ no retirement funds, and others that worked until they dropped with a true sole household income of 15k per year. Many lack family support. They, are indigent. They have Medicare under SSD, not Medicaid benefits that cover more medical expenses. They contributed to the system. They do without a lot including healthy food. A 40k tuition defense on fraud or twisted loop holes renders no sympathy. Theft for Medicaid of the accused is inexcusable. Jail time should be placed on the major players. There had to be a lot of money laundering taking place. Co-conspirators such as various professionals engaging in advice, unreported gifting, or accounting that conflicted with the County’s directives in 2015 should face charges too. Hold them responsible. That should deter future acts. Impose fines and pay back the programs, pay back the government legal expenses, and form a task force. Ask the taxpayers and workers to provide input. Vote on it if necessary. Fix it. The totality is unacceptable and should not have happened as long as it did. Yes KayyC, the thefts are the acts of evil with strategic chosen ignorance.

    Money Laundering Keeps ultra-Orthodox Families Afloat
    The free-loan funds that play a central role in supplementing the incomes of ultra-Orthodox households rely on black market capital. Draft legislation cracking down on tax evasion could spell trouble for them.

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    Even other jews hate Hassidic jews. That entire denomination is notorious welfare leeches. They leech off of Israel and are exempt from military service. The men don’t work. They pray in the temple all day except for when they go to the strip clubs. The women all birth at least 10-14 kids and run scams from home.

    Just wanted to add that despite being super conservative amongst themselves, Hassidics are heavily involved with the sex industry. They own strip clubs, sex shops, lingerie shops, casinos and produce porn.

  • Peter Chapurtinov

    I get this sick feeling seeing all these jews every time I ride through Lakewood.
    I see them walking along the roads. The ones that aren’t walking are driving mini vans
    I knew a guy who used to live in Lakewood. The kikes there tried to force him to sell his house, he refused. So the jews bought the houses on both sides of his and boarded up the windows and they never cut the lawns
    This brought his house value down and finally he sold it

    Welcome to “Ocean County” the part of New Jersey where compassion, tolerance, and social justice are the main objective of most residents.

    • Peter C

      What part? Lakewood?

    • KaayC

      Nope, Welcome to Ocean County where it is working class American metro area’s last stand. We have fled once liveable areas like the Bronx, Staten Island, Newark, Elizabeth, etc., etc, fled from tolerance and multiculturalism ad infinitum. We have experienced first-hand the short end of the stick that compassion and “diversity” has given us. Many of us are also from higher echelons now relegated to barrack- like housing as in Seizure Village, Greenfriar etc. We have been section 8, Compensatory educated, Title 1’d and Equal Opportunitied to death whilst having our pockets picked with four hands: Corporate America, liar lawyers, politicians and “diversity” have collectively robbed us blind. We are not, not, NOT going to take it anymore! I believe I speak for many. I am not an Auntie Semite. Just tell Moshe and Sheldon, “Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.” A quote from a great woman, an American/Jewish judge who I wish could prevail on this case.

  • Hello

    Every home is big on glass in a Toms River, New Jersey, neighborhood called North Dover. Windows let in the sun, or show off chandeliers in multistory entrance halls.

    These days, though, most homeowners draw the blinds, retreating from brushes with a fast-growing Orthodox Jewish community that’s trying to turn a swath of suburban luxury 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Atlantic beaches into an insular enclave. The rub, a township inquiry found, is “highly annoying, suspicious and creepy” tactics used by some real-estate agents.

    They show up on doorsteps to tell owners that if they don’t sell, they’ll be the only non-Orthodox around. Strangers, sometimes several to a car, shoot photos and videos. When they started pulling over to ask children which house was theirs, parents put an end to street-hockey games.

They have wealthy high powered Lawyers to defend them without prosecution and reward them when they are unjustly vindicated. Where is the morals?
