WASHINGTON: ‘ RISING TIDE OF FRAUD IN THE MILITARY ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Nov.16 – The rising tide of fraud in the military and ways to make fast cash has begun to alarm the Department of Defence.

One such story of how a man called Fabian Barrera found a way to make fast cash in the Texas National Guard, earning roughly $181,000 for claiming to have steered 119 potential recruits to join the military, was highlighted by AP in a recent report.

Though the bonuses were ill-gotten because the former captain never actually referred anyone.

Barrera’s case, which ended last month with a prison sentence of at least three years, is part of what Justice Department lawyers describe as a recurring pattern of corruption that spans a broad cross section of the military.
