Rdc, ordinance: suspects were preparing to return the emergency income in November
The investigations by the Milan prosecutor’s office on the maxi scam to get the Basic income despite not having the requisites, it made it possible to ascertain how “the illegal business has affected and is affecting, at the same time, also the receipt of the so-called emergency income”. It is one of the passages contained inorder of the investigating judge of Milan Teresa De Pascale which led to the arrest of 16 people for the assumptions of crime of aggravated fraud against the State, criminal association and extortion. A group of Romanians in tandem with some Italians – partly accomplices, partly victims of extortion – would have managed to create a ‘parallel channel’ within various Caf-Tax Assistance Centers to obtain subsidy requests despite the absence of the necessary criteria to obtain public money and without submit the necessary documentation. In practice, it was claimed that thousands of Romanians had lived in Italy for 10 years even though they had never set foot there. In some cases, those who worked in the Cafes were aware of the scam and kept silent for the fee of 10 euros recognized by the INPS for each practice; in other cases they were threatened. The arrests and searches were performed by the Finance police in the provinces of Cremona, Lodi, Brescia, Pavia, Milan, Andria, Barletta and Agrigento. To entice the group ended up in handcuffs also the emergency income. The precautionary requirements include “the serious climate of real intimidation that the association is able to generate, with threats perpetrated both explicitly and in allusive form”, but also the fact that “the suspects are preparing for a new round of the emergency income, in the month of November, indicating that the criminal activities have never been stopped and are in progress “, reads the ordinance.
Rdc, order: € 14.6 million scam, but without arrests the damage could rise to 55 million
“From the examination of the applications analyzed, it is estimated that the unduly received contribution relating to the 6 thousand irregular applications is approximately 14,600,000 euros, while what they would have received, had the revocation not taken place, would have been approximately 55 million”. It is one of the steps that concerns the investigation of the prosecutor of Milan which led to 16 arrests for a maxi fraud related to the citizen’s income and which sees over 9,000 people reported. The investigation reveals a scam concocted by a group of Romanians with some Italians – partly accomplices, partly victims of extortion – in some Caf-Tax assistance centers qualified for the paperwork for grant applications. Those arrested showed up in Caf ‘friends’ with the tax codes of hundreds of Romanians claiming that they had the credentials to be entitled to the support measure, therefore that they had been resident in Italy for 10 years even if they had never set foot in Italy. The group had created an “alternative” procedure, according to “an ad hoc ‘parallel’ channel”, a preferential lane that allowed “the acceptance of applications only on the basis of lists of names, in the absence of any verification of identity”. An apparently simple mechanism, but “inextricably linked to the knowledge of procedural quibbles relating to the preliminary phase of the applications for obtaining the Citizenship Income”, as stated in the order of the investigating judge.

“The Basic income it should help those who really cannot work and instead confirms that it is mainly a godsend for thieves and scammers. At least 20 million pocketed by Romanians who have never been to Italy.
