A press release of New York Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo tells of charges against an apartment screening service. The charges arise from an undercover investigation. It is claimed that this "New York City company acting as an apartment broker used bait & switch schemes on the popular website Craigslist.org to bilk 4,000 New Yorkers out of almost $1 million dollars." (see also WSJ here)
Another press release of Cuomo's office "announced the arrests of two former New York State employees who are charged with fraudulently receiving workers' compensation benefits by lying about their employment status."
