    Recieved a note from the unemployment folks this past week saying that " Andrea *****" has filed for and been granted unemployment compensation under my business due to lack of work.

    That's real interesting since this person has never worked for me and is on the other side of town.

    My accountant spent 2 hours on the phone trying to get an answer as to how this happened and all she got was that I had to file a dispute. So now I have to spend the time and cost to get this undone.

    Just another example of lazy ass people trying to screw those of us who work.

    If I can press charges for fraud you bet I will.

    How can you be sure the fine folks at the unemployment office didnt make a mistake? They sould like lazy peices of crap since they cant look into anything without you filing a form for them to do so.

    That of course is a possibility, but I still have to go through the motions to even find out. You would think they could look at the tax records and figure out real quick whether on not she has ever recieved a paycheck from me before they grant the unemployment.

    Man-O-Man, if you only knew the issues I have been having here lately. I'm really getting SICK of begging people to do there job. and us Joe Public paying the price.
    it's like noone cares anymore.

    file that protest and then file a complante, then push it as far as you can.

    Stand up and let them know, WERE MAD AS HELL, AND WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.........

    of-corse I could be going off the deep end....
