OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma Metropolis man has paid virtually $123,000 to settle claims that allege he wrongfully obtained social security advantages for another person.
In line with the US Division of Justice, from April 2013 via March 2019 Social Security advantages have been deposited right into a checking account belonging to a deceased SS beneficiary. Had the U.S. identified on the time concerning the beneficiary’s passing, these advantages would haven’t been distributed.
David Lehman had entry to that checking account and withdrew these advantages, though he was not entitled to take action.
To settle civil False Claims Act allegations, Lehman paid the U.S. $122,949. Via this settlement Lehman didn’t admit legal responsibility nor did the federal government make any concessions concerning the legitimacy of the claims.
“The settlement permits the events to keep away from delay, expense, inconvenience, and uncertainty concerned in litigating the case,” mentioned the U.S. Division of Justice.
