Default Africans from Ghana - Nonprofit scammers convicted of ripping off the elderly


Nonprofit scammers convicted of ripping off the elderly

The disgraced former head of a New York City-funded non-profit, and his wife, was convicted Tuesday of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars intended to feed needy senior citizens.

Kwame Insaidoo, former executive director of the United Block Association, and his wife, Roxanna Insaidoo, were found guilty following a one-week federal trial of stealing money they were getting from the city to feed seniors and spending it on clothes, luxury cars and their four-bedroom Long Island home.

“The defendants’ brazen theft deprived some of the city’s neediest residents of public money for healthy meals and senior citizen programs,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim, who worked the case with the help of the city’s Department of Investigation.

The Insaidoo’s 2016 arrests exposed major vulnerabilities in the city Department for the Aging’s fiscal oversight of nonprofits they funded.

Between 2008 and 2015, the department funneled more than $8.7 million in federal, state and local funds to Insaidoo’s nonprofit. Their lax oversight allowed Insaidoo to overbill the department — in one instance by more than 500 percent — and ultimately embezzle $580,000, the feds said.

Insaidoo faces as much as 95 years in prison while his wife faces closer to 75 years. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 11.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
