    Two federal prison inmates pleaded guilty to illegally filing for unemployment benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic and receiving more than $2 million in total fraudulent payments, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced... According to their plea agreements, during the time of the conspiracy, March 22, 2020 through at least June 2021, the two men were inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution, Fort Dix. They, and their co-conspirators (both inmates and outside individuals), submitted fraudulent online applications for unemployment insurance benefits in Maryland and other states.  Based on the information in the fraudulent applications, the Maryland Department of Labor, which is responsible for processing applications for unemployment insurance benefits in Maryland, issued prepaid debit cards in the names of the applicants and mailed them to addresses included on the applications, which were accessible to the conspirators.
