Barack Obama may be president, but there is no shortage of scammers seeking protection with the race card.
According to the grand jury indictment, David A. Banks, Demetrius K. Harper, Gary L. Walker, Clinton A. Stewart, David A. Zirpolo and Kendrick Barnes conned several different Colorado temporary services into payrolling ghosted employees on fictitious work orders.
Similar Scam in Philadelphia by Eric Ward of “Keeping It Real Tour”
According to a temporary service in Philadelphia, the same fraud was used against them by Eric Ward of “Keeping It Real Tour”. Ward conned temporary staffing firms to payroll his ghosted employees, and one of those temporary services which was a Tempworks customer has since gone out of business.
Sadly enough, this same Eric Ward plays a high profile in the African-American community and according to this article by Kia Gregory of the Philadelphia Inquirer will be visiting 60 inner-city schools around the country to teach motivation and leadership skills.
God help those poor kids.
