Stolen Unemployment Funds Recovered

(Olympia, WA) -- Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson has recovered six-point-six million dollars in stolen unemployment money. It's estimated that fraudsters stole 163-billion dollars nationwide during the pandemic. Ferguson says Washington is the only state using asset forfeiture powers to recover stolen unemployment funds. The money was located in JPMorgan Chase Bank accounts and a King County Superior Court Judge ordered the bank to return the funds to Washington. So far, nearly 19-million dollars have been recovered.
