Fraud At Obamaphone, Inc.

Street-level vendors for TerraCom, Inc., a provider of government-subsidized phone service, were trained to forge signatures and falsify data, a former employee has told National Review Online and the Scripps National Investigative Team.

The federal government’s $2.189 billion Lifeline program, which is supposed to provide subsidized phone service to the poor, has become notorious for fraud and abuse. Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission reported the results of an audit of the top five Lifeline providers: It found 41 percent of beneficiaries — approximately 6 million subscribers — hadn’t proven their eligibility.
