Daycare Scam: More Than $100 Million in Cash Shoved in Suitcases Flown to Middle East From Minnesota
Gateway Pundit reports:
In the last year, more than $100 million in cash shoved into suitcases has been transported from St. Paul International Airport to the Middle East and beyond in what many believe to be the worst welfare scam in Minnesota history.
Investigators believe Minnesota taxpayer money is being funneled to terrorists through this elaborate welfare scam.
Fox 9 TV uncovered this scam and started tracking the mysterious new trend–carry-on luggage shoved with cash leaving St. Paul International Airport headed to the Middle East.
In one such incident, a man shoved $1 million cash into one suitcase; Fox 9 tracked over $100 million in one year with the same travel pattern.
Even worse, this money is coming from welfare fraud from the Somali community in Minnesota and the scam is known to authorities.
One investigator says the money is ending up in the hands of al-Shabaab terrorists in the Hawala region of Somalia.
Fox 9 reported:
On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms.
Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
The national, go-to expert on what is behind these mysterious money transfers is Glen Kerns.
“What we were interested in is where it was going,” Kerns said.
He is a former Seattle police detective who spent 15 years on the FBI’s joint terrorism task force, until his retirement.
“It’s an outright crime, it’s unbelievable,” he said.
Kerns tracked millions of dollars in cash that was leaving on flights from Seattle.
It was coming from Hawalas, businesses used to courier money to countries that have no official banking system.
Some immigrant communities rely on Hawalas to send funds to help impoverished relatives back home.
Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.
It’s all about welfare fraud through a daycare scam, says the investigator.
Ten daycares are under active investigation at this time and according to public records, most are owned by Somali immigrants.
One Somali immigrant plead guilty to welfare fraud after being sworn in as a member of the city of Hopkins Park Board, Fox reported.
As she was taking her oath of office, she was also under investigation for wire fraud and theft of public money.
“So help me God,” she said during the ceremony.
A little background on the welfare fraud:
Those wire transfers stopped after a few centers were busted.
Which brings us back to those mysterious suitcases at Minneapolis-St. Paul International.
In 2015, investigators documented $14 million in carry on cash. By 2016, it had mushroomed to $84 million. Then last year, $100 million.
A trend all too familiar to former terrorism investigator Glen Kerns.
Fox 9 asked him how likely it is that some of the money is going towards terrorism?
“I say absolutely, our sources tell us that. Good sources, from the community leaders,” he said. “My personal opinion is we need a nationwide task force to clamp down on this type of fraud.”
