    The Beverly Hills Police Department launched an investigation into possible EDD fraud that has led to nearly 50 arrests and over $2.5 million on fraudulent EDD cards, officials announced Wednesday.

    In a press release, officials said that the BHPD “learned criminals were fraudulently obtaining EDD benefits loaded onto EDD debit cards using stolen identities” at the beginning of September.

    Since Sept. 3, police have arrested 44 Beverly Hills residents who are responsible for EDD fraud and identity theft, according to the release. Additionally, 129 fraudulent EDD credit cards have been recovered, valuing over $2.5 million.

    Over $289,000 in U.S. currency and seven handguns were also seized from those arrested.
    The police will be suspended no doubt.

    I thought Beverly Hills was a wealthy community ?

    The EDD issues benefit payments for Disability Insurance, Paid Family Leave, and Unemployment Insurance claims using the EDD Visa Debit Card. This prepaid debit card is a fast, convenient, and secure way to get your benefit payments and is not subject to a credit check or monitoring by the EDD.

    Beverly Hills is a wealthy community, but even wealthy communities have areas that are less wealthy. Or maybe people rent PO boxes at their post office to use as their mailing address. Even if you get your SSI/disability/whatever money through direct deposit, you still need a mail address.

    But then again, it's a fraud case. People were getting rich by pretending to be poor.
