TX: Attorney General’s Child Support Division Corruption

With the gargantuan size of the child support industry, it almost goes without saying that the system has plenty of people who would seek to take advantage of the flood of money that flows through child support collections offices.

One of several recent reports includes the story out of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office.  In February, Eloisa Garcia Casso pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States as alleged in a second superseding indictment returned by a Laredo federal grand jury on Feb. 1, 2011. This criminal activity was done while Casso was employed in the Child Support Division of the Texas Attorney General. Casso pleaded guilty to United States District Judge Diana Saldana. Sentencing for Casso is scheduled for May 20, 2011.

Online, it’s interesting that you’ll find all sorts of information about

From the FBI’s press release out of the San Antonio, Texas office:

Casso, a former employee of the Texas Attorney General’s Office Child Support Division, illegally obtained identifying information of applicants seeking state assistance during the course of her employment. Casso, along with her co-conspirators, used this information to electronically file false Form 1040 tax returns on behalf of victims, directing the fraudulent income tax refunds to bank accounts that she either owned or had access to. Casso admitted to receiving or attempting to receive in excess of $80,000 during the course of the conspiracy which spanned from January 2001 through March 2005.

Where there is a wealth of money under the oversight of our government entities, there will surely be people ready to steal from the till.  Texas Attorney General prides himself on rounding up fathers who are behind in their child support and enjoys publicizing their names.  Meanwhile, people under his charge are stealing from the child support division.  It took an FBI investigation for anything to be done about it.

While you’ll find plenty of information about how Greg Abbott’s office is seeking public help in finding people behind on child support, publishing their names in the paper, and how seriously he takes these efforts, you’ll find scant little information about employees who are stealing tens-of-thousands of dollars out of his very own child support division.

  1. Texas manupilated a case I offered to pay off 100% past due based on requirments of the divorce and instead ordered 400 per mo and the judge and lawyer laughed at me. they manopulated the amount owed and wanted to garnish so the lawyers could collect the fed sub money on the case. My ex called me after the hearing and bragged how I would now owe her for the rest of my life. The lawers now want to have me killed so they can liquidate my assets for collecting a final large sum federal sub check at 66 cents on the dollar because they call it child support state and federal law through the Bradley Ammendment 1985 allows the lawyers to defraued the USA by adjusting the amount owed through corrupt child support cases.

  3. After losing custody of my son to a “on the record” prostitute they took Cs out of my paycheck for 5 years. They took half my check on a 150.00 a month payment. I didn’t object because I moved back to Russia knowing I paid more than enough through my childs 18th b-day. In 06 on a return trip from Russia, I got a letter from AG saying I owed 18k..and had never paid anything. They had the wrong total, wrong monthly amount, and no record of my CS taken from my checks. I took the court order to the AG office along with my check stubs to show payment. My Mistake! They corrected the errors on monthly amount but then I was ordered to court. When I went to court they knew nothing about any check stubs. Thy lying sack lawyer gave me only option: “Pay or go to jail” I actually think I caught the AG pocketing my money. Add the added injustice of the court NEVER enforcing my visitation. They don’t let you mention visitation in a CS hearing… Another issue. Before I return to Russia, How am I to be compensated for all of this?
