Whether due to an accidental misfiling and misrepresentation or an intentional effort to defraud, securing benefits from the numerous Small Business Administration grants by way of the Paycheck Protection Program or Economic Injury Disaster Loans is potentially criminal. Similarly, collecting Unemployment Insurance or other benefits, such as those provided by the New York City Covid-19 Immigrant Emergency Relief Program, for which you are not entitled may lead to your arrest, indictment and even incarceration.
Whatever the allegation or accusation, do not let an honest mistake or temporary lapse in judgement relegate you to a prison cell and the decimation of your otherwise honorable name that existed well before the fear, frustration and anxiety of the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Protect yourself and implement the right defense now, even during these uncertain times.
