With unemployment high, with people desperate for jobs, we may be seeing more instances of alleged puffing or fraud in the job search process. But one doesn't expect the government to be spending its time prosecuting individuals based upon alleged fraud in the job search.
But Martha Graybow, Reuters, U.S. Businessman Accused of Fraud in Job Search reports otherwise. And to make matters even worse, the government wanted the job seeker detained. The magistrate judge in Miami responded with a $25,000 bond, which the government then sought to stay. And when that was denied, the government headed to New York to secure a stay. Again a denial for the government. The accused is represented by David Oscar Markus, who blogs at the Southern District of Florida Blog.
