North Carolina Attorney General Office Complaint - report of welfare fraud
SUPPLY, NORTH CAROLINA -- As a honest consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.
I am writing to you about a welfare fraud. I am a neighbor of the person collecting the welfare through the TANF program and also receiving medicaid. I am also a friend of his ex-wife. I felt obligated to report this when I found out about it. I would like to keep this anonymous for the safety of the children and his ex-wife but can be reached for any additional information at:email@example.com . The person collecting the welfare is Mr. William A. Immen, 204 Chestnut Dr. SW, Supply, NC 28462. He has collected approximately $5000.00 to date. While collecting TANF he was or still is working for cash at one company and with one individual and running two different newspaper routes each night for the Wilmington Star News in his ex-girlfriends name. Her name is Barbara Caison. His pay for the paper routes are direct deposited in an account in her name that he has access to. One of the paper routes includes Lockwood Folly Golf community in Supply and the other route includes the area of Morgan Road in Supply. Since the spring time he was working at a place called NC Provisions at Holden Beach, NC for cash. His 14 year old son also worked there for cash all summer. The man he worked for's name is Chris. Two other employees there are a man named Norm, who rented an apartment upstairs at the business and also a man named LJ who lives in Varnamtown. The phone number there is (910)842-8606. I know this is true because his ex-wife has gone there to pick up their son, Brandon and has also seen William working there at the same time. His 14 year old daughter, Kristen was working at Captain Pete's Seafood restaurant as a dishwasher for cash. Her mother confirmed this to me as she had to pick up and deliver Kristen to work there because her father was too busy. She had also received calls from the owner of the restaurant to see if Kristen could come in to work. His name is Mike. She had also received calls from another employee's mother calling to see if Kristen could work for her daughter, whose name is Morgan Gillette. The phone number at the restaurant is (910)846-9988. Mr. Immen also has half interest in a house with his sister Nancy Greene of New Jersey that belonged to his deceased parents at 2849 Arthur Street, Varnamtown, NC. He is renting it out and collecting monies each month on that from his ex-girlfriend's daughter Amanda Caison and her boyfriend and their baby. He owns four cars as well. The two that are running are a red Ford pick-up truck that he did have registered in his ex-girlfriend's name and a 1992 Buick that he made their oldest daughter give him the title to. It may still be registered in her name. Her name is Melissa Immen. Regarding the Medicaid fraud, His ex-wife had gone to take their daughter, Kristen to the dentist since the father once again did not have time to do and they refused to see her with her Medicaid because they said Mr. Immen had private insurance and that medicaid would not pay. The dentist that could confirm this would be Laris Wayne Milligan, DMD PA, 2250 Shipyard Blvd in Wilmington, NC. Phone number there is (910)799-5000.
As a resolution, I would like the following:
I would like someone to check into this, as Mr. Immen has friends at the local DSS office and I don't believe that reporting this to them would do any good. If any other information is needed, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I could probably get any additional information from his ex-wife. Thank for for keeping this anonymous. If there is a different agency that this needs to be reported to, please e-mail me and let me know. Thank you for your time and anticipated cooperation in this matter.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more details regarding this incident.
