Cindy Ross, NAFCJ

Mother’s Rights Pioneer 

In the late 1990’s, Cindy was going through a bitter divorce and custody battle in Marin County, California which had dragged out for 4 years.  At the same time she discovered that the lawyers on the case were double billing the courts using HHS “Responsible Fatherhood” and Access and Visitation funds.  Cindy courageously came forth to expose fraud in the courts, and stood up publicly to fathers rights activists like CRC’s director, David Levy, Glenn Sacks of Fathers and Families, and Warren Farrell and the pedophile agenda.

Cindy’s case was featured in the “Winner Report” on family court fraud:

” On Dec. 6, the Fairfax Town Council passed a resolution calling for revision of California family code and the federal Violence Against Women Act, and resolving that the Town Council joins the National Organization for Women in denouncing the use of the “parental alienation syndrome” legal strategy.


Parental alienation syndrome, originally crafted as a legal defense of child molesters, is routinely used in family court to mishandle domestic and child abuse cases as custody disputes and to punish mothers and children reporting abuse.

Use of parental alienation syndrome underlies not only egregious child custody rulings – especially custody switches to batterers and child molesters – and family court related misconduct, but the misuse of government programs and funding. In 2003, the American Prosecutors Research Instituteidentified parental alienation syndrome as the means to obstruct prosecution of abuse cases.”

Cracking Down on Fraud Is Difficult Because “Math is Hard” 

This week the Department of Justice announced securities fraud charges against six Freddie Mac CEO and Fannie Mae CEO s for lying on  their SEC disclosures.
The announcement was long overdue according to Certified Fraud Investigator Harry Markopolous, most notable for his role in exposing the Bernie Madoff international banking fraud scam.  The FBI investigation into the $65 billion scandal remains open.  Madoff’s scam was massive and involved European royalty, the top Wall Street banking firms, and a list of 165 single spaced pages of nonprofits. Markopolous reported the fraud to the ill equipped Securities and Exchange Commission no less than 6 times before getting action, but the reason it was not taken seriously was that:
“The five commissioners of the S.E.C. are securities lawyers. Securities lawyers never understand finance. They don’t have the math background. If you can’t do math and if you can’t take apart the investment products of the 21st century backward and forward and put them together in your sleep, you’ll never find the frauds on Wall Street.”
In 2009, Markopolous voiced his concerns in the NY Times regarding the authorities who dismissed his evidence of a dangerous conspiracy and the price of going public:

“There was an abject failure by the regulatory agencies we entrust as our watchdog,” Mr. Markopolos says in his testimony. Mr. Madoff was arrested in December and accused of running a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.


Mr. Markopolos says his experience with most S.E.C. officials “proved to be a systemic disappointment, and lead me to conclude that the S.E.C. securities lawyers, if only through their investigative ineptitude and financial illiteracy, colluded to maintain large frauds such as the one to which Madoff later confessed.”


Mr. Markopolos describes Mr. Madoff as “one of the most powerful men on Wall Street” and says there was “great danger” in raising questions about him.

During his years of investigation, “my team and I surmised that if Mr. Madoff gained knowledge of our activities, he may feel threatened enough to seek to stifle us,” he says in the testimony.


He also says, “I became fearful for the safety of my family until the S.E.C. finally acknowledged, after Madoff had been arrested, that it had received credible evidence of Madoff’s Ponzi scheme several years earlier.”

Each year, approximately $5 billion in HHS tax dollars goes to fatherhood and family court industry, and maybe $300 million towards VAWA.  Much of this money ends up in the hands of the same people and will be used for fraud.  One of the biggest challenges we face is that prominent mother’s advocates are not willing to specifically address the impact of gender based funding in the courts and financial fraud.  Despite the fact that every father’s rights group has made their main focus child support and court funding, Mothers especially are not encouraged to educate themselves on how to do the math or learn about federal funding.
Despite the fact that both sides of the issue claim to be promoting “exposure,” leaders discourage parents from questioning their leaders on this issue about why they will  not address federal funding. Many women complain they are stonewalled, labeled “not team players” or “hurting the movement” if they identify fraud in DV nonprofits or questionable spending. Going to court to defend your children is not free, but ensuring that care providers are properly licensed and in compliance with IRS laws is.  Why don’t parents groups want to discuss this?
As Markopolous says, scams are complicated, which is why they are able to proliferate, and if you discover one you need to be able and willing to effectively teach others who are not invested in your case how it works.  Much improvement is needed in the way advocacy groups are addressing this issue [if at all.]


Why Reforming the IRS Tax Code and Nonprofit Disclosure Laws Will Stop Child Sex Trafficking

This week we were all pleased to see that there was a  long over due US Senate hearing about child abuse.  Senator Barbara Mikulski has called for proposals on how we can reform laws to protect children so that scandals like Penn State never happen again.  The hearing went as I thought it would, which was plenty of talk about [perfectly legal] abuse of discretion in courtrooms, social workers not properly trained, etc.  It reaffirmed my belief that mothers are being trained NOT to educate themselves about financial issues like the federally incentivized fraud which may be driving it.
The chief complaint I hear from parents is that they feel like their case is crooked, but they cannot find the money.  Thanks to outdated and lax IRS disclosure laws and the Attorney General’s failure to require HHS and States to make information reguarding nonprofit’s leadership, grants, donations, and spending readily accessable has made nonprofits like Jerry Sandusky’s Second Mile profitably pedophile friendly.  After all, it was the Second Mile nonprofit who provided all >13 victims to Sandusky, many of whom were foster kids whose social workers should have been investigated, no?
Child trafficking rings are run by business people, with our tax dollars, and need to be treated as an illicit financial enterprise. Click on this article which explains how nearly 10 percent of the annual U.S. budget, by some estimates, finds its way into the hands of individuals and companies through false and fraudulent billing claims to TANF Title IV-D and Title IV-E Medicare and Medicaid submitted by pharmaceutical or health-care companies. A published report says 80 percent of the fraud is in the health-care sector, though defense, education, transportation and oil and gas are also targets. So who are the alleged recipients of all these IV-D program services?
The U.S. False Claims Act (FCA) was enacted in March 1863 to battle abuses of federal contractors during the Civil War, is miserably failing as our primary weapon which is supposed to curtail the tide of fraudulent claims by government vendors. Some of the reason these federally funded fraud rings exist profitably :
(1)  Their profits are hidden under various nonprofit entities which the IRS does not audit, and the states do not keep track of. Many are unlicensed or registered, and do not file 990’s. The states do not keep their databases current, or levy fines against violators consistently (if ever,) nor do they cross reference suspended entities with their affiliates in other states. Kickbacks,double and tripple billing fraud is rampant, and no one checks to see if the nonprofits are actually providing services or keeping track of funding. Powerful people like judges, celebrities, and politicians sit on their boards, and fail to disclose their conflicts of interests when steering business to via their day job to their pet projects.
EXAMPLE: “Kids for Cash” scandal in PA, where judges were prosecuted for taking millions in kickbacks from federally funded juvenile detention facilities. These prisons are still in business and receives federal funds, and have operations in multiple states which were never audited. The judges involved used illicit tax liens (Click here to read the story.
EXAMPLE:  Boys Town and the Franklin fostercare child sex abuse/prostitution ring scandal in Nebraska in the late 1980’s. >$38 million missing from Franklin Credit Union connected to alleged pedophile ring, no one prosecuted for running a child brothel, Boys Town still in business, Boys Town still gets millions in federal funding. (Click here to read the story.)
(2)  The “merchandise” for pedophile rings comes from the fostercare industry,where the children have no one looking out for them, their parents were discredited as “unfit,” and if they complain, the child rape victims can be profitably drugged up using Medicaid incentives.
EXAMPLE:  Diane Sawyer’s 20/20 investigative special on Medicaid, fostercare, and child drugging.
(3) The OIG and State are not aggressive in criminally prosecuting tax fraud and embezzlement of public funds within their own programs.  Click on this Petition to learn how $4 billion untraceable dollars meant for needy children were diverted and wasted by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to non needs based programs via the family court litigation industry—no matter how wealthy they are.
(4)  The fostercare industry and the family court industry receive federal incentives [on commission basis]to keep cases open, in high conflict, and to cause mental health problems and unstable home situations.  Broken families are profitable to fix, which is why the court gives children to pedophiles so that the family/kids become eligable for HHS intervention services and parents will fight to get them back over extended periods of time.
EXAMPLE:  Adoption and Safe Families Act incentives which Sandusky and co. received from HHS.
(5)  HHS does not oversee it’s own programs and funding after the check is cut to the state and grantees, and the conflicts of interest which involve the heads of HHS and the OJJDP and the nonprofits are immense.  For instance, HHS gave hundreds of millions to charity “Devoted Dads” who sponsored the Beltway Sniper’s custody case against fit mother Mildred Muhammadrecieved hundreds of millions, but was never properly registered with the IRS.
EXAMPLE:  November 2011 FBI raid on Lackawanna Family Court’s Family ServicesOffice for kickback/nonprofit scam involving lawyers and family court professionals, judges.  County vendor payment receipts here.
Parents must be willing to go before the US Senate armed with financial data and statistics and demand financial accountability to affect real change.  Although most social workers and family court professionals are honest, parents need to find a better way to communicate to law makers about the few bad apples engaged in fraud.  Fraud is not necessarily proven by demonstrating that abusers get custody, and that incidents of abuse and evidence was covered up, which is more along the lines of professional negligence and recklessness.  IRS laws are great because the math ads up or it doesn’t. When you can show that a supervised visitation nonprofit hurting your relationship with your child is not in compliance with the IRS and State registration and licensing requirements, it is more believable that the “bad decisions” are actually a result of fraud.
It does not help if we pass symbolic laws which government sponsored agencies are paid to outright ignore at the expense of our children’s virginity.
Los Angeles Judge Marv  Breyer files a request for injunctive relief to compel production of records which would allegedly show a fraud scheme perpetrated by the LA Superior Court Judges Association AKA Family Services Special Fund. This organization is a private non-profit organization that has stolen funds that were destined for the County treasury.  (

Here is the endorsement on the back:
Judge Breyer demonstrates that the IRS laws need overhauling in this excerpt taken from:
IRS Non-Profit OrganizationBackgroundAn independent Organization exists in the Federal Offices at 300 N. Los Angeles Street in L.A. This organization is tax exempt, but will not reveal its Tax exempt status and public function (required by law).  A copy of Lawrence Edgar’s response to Mr. Bryer is attached as Exhibit 1, where Mr. Edgar identifies his organization as tax ‘exempt’ and therefore required by law to make the financial records public. The IRS also publishes a list of tax exempt organizations that lists the Internal Revenue Service Certified Public Accountants as a tax exempt organization and therefore subject to records review.A letter has been sent by Marvin Bryer to the IRS alerting them of this scam; the attendant mis-use of government facilities; and the apparent tax fraud occurring under their noses. Since the IRS may be aware of this and a cover-up could be taking place, copies of this alert have been sent to the appropriate congressional offices. The alert is posted below.

To: The IRS at 300 N. Los Angeles Street, Los Angeles CA 90012
Administration room 5078


An Internal Revenue Service agent named Lawrence Edgar is operating a charity scam inside a federal building. See Exhibit 1 – his letter to me.

Edgar alleges his corporation is a “charity”, so I am giving the IRS a donation of $10 to submit to Edgar’s corporation. Frankly, I consider his IRS corporation to be a FRAUD.

I have detected that IRS agents are giving continuing legal education seminars with judges and lawyers who launder the money collected into a “court” slush fund. I suspect Edgar may be involved, but I have to prove that.

I have reported the fund, to the IRS to no avail. Obviously there is a cover-up. I will be escalating this to my Senators and House of Representatives and I will ask for a NEW HEARING regarding the internal workings of the IRS. Frankly, the system does not work and persons are selectively incriminated while IRS agents and judges are excluded from law enforcement.

The “charity” I am reporting calls itself the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE – CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS. See the attached letter sent to me by Lawrence Edgar.

Bryer 12-21-1998 letter to the IRS: Page 2 of 2.

As you can see, Edgar is operating out of the Federal Building at 300 N. Los Angeles Street where my letter is being submitted. Mr. Edgar falsely believes he can deny providing me with his corporation’s 1023 form. That is a violation of the TAX CODE. Please note that Mr. Edgar can be sued and this will reflect on the IRS.

His corporation was ruled on by the IRS in 1978. Its EIN is 95-3276035. It alleges to be an EDUCATIONAL organization. Its donations are deductible. However, it is virtually impossible to give to this “worthy” charity because EDGAR and his corporation will not disclose their actual address within the Federal Building. (see Info sheet)

Also, there is probable cause of mail fraud and misappropriation of federal property. The letter to me was mailed from El Segundo but was addressed from your address. My tax dollars paid for the building which is also my property as a taxpayer. I will not agree to fund Edgar’s corporation scheme.

[1]  “Court Docs Reveal New Details of Alleged SF Unified Payment Scheme” By Trey Bundy

For years, the San Francisco Unified School District department that manages after-school programs falsified “most if not all” financial reports and improperly transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars to community organizations under contract to the district, according to court documents…

…In an October letter to Capuli, Tom Ruiz, the district’s director of labor relations, accused Capuli of “reporting that the full amount of the grant had been expended when, in fact, hundreds of thousands of dollars were carried over and transferred into some other account.”

Ruiz wrote that Capuli admitted to knowing that the unreported leftover money had been transferred to Edgewood Center for Children and Families, Bay Area Community Resources and the San Francisco School Alliance – all of which contract with the district to provide a wide range of student and teacher services – and, in fact, into the same accounts from which Capuli, Bascom and their colleagues received their allegedly improper payments.

Officials at Edgewood and Bay Area Community Resources could not be reached for comment.

Terry Bergeson, executive director of San Francisco School Alliance declined comment when reached by phone.

Thus far, district officials have said publicly that the scheme involved the misappropriation of district funds totaling about $100,000. But the letter from Ruiz suggests that large amounts of district money that were transferred to community organizations are still unaccounted for.

[2]  Former CEO of New York’s MediSys Found Guilty of Conspiracy, Fraud 

Between 1999 and 2008, ROSEN caused MediSys or its affiliates to make over $400,000 in payments to Seminerio through a sham consulting company. In exchange, Seminerio advocated on his behalf with New York State agencies concerning the discharge of a $19 million loan in 2006. He also co-sponsored legislation to provide a secured financing option to MediSys in 2006, and like KRUGER, deliberated with New York State agency personnel on behalf of MediSys in connection with the acquisition of the Caritas Hospitals.

Between 2003 and 2008, ROSEN also caused MediSys to ROSEN, 63, of Westchester County, was found guilty of two counts of efforts to bribe KRUGER, BOYLAND, and Seminerio. He was also convicted of three additional counts — one count of honest services fraud conspiracy (with BOYLAND), and two counts of

Seminerio pled guilty to one count of honest services make corrupt payments to BOYLAND though a no-show consulting job that paid him approximately $35,000 a year. In exchange for the2008 from MediSys, he took official action to benefit the

company, including requesting that the Speaker of the Assembly award millions of dollars to Brookdale Hospital.

[3]  “Kids for Cash” scandal in Luzerne County, PA.

PA Judges Mark Ciavarella Jr. and Michael Conahan, were convicted in federal courtin Scranton, Pa., in 2011 on charges that they ran the local court system as a racketeering enterprise.  The judges accepted $2.8 million in kickbacks from the owner and builder of two privately-run juvenile detention facilities. In exchange, the judges agreed to close down the county’s own juvenile detention center, which would have competed with the new, privately-run facilities. In addition they guaranteed that juvenile offenders from their court would be directed to the privately-run facilities.

[1] If you call in to listen, but do not wish to ask a question, there is no need to and you should not dial #1 or #2 when you call in. You can just stay on the line so we do not confuse you with someone with a hand raised.

[2] If you are in line to talk to the host, put your computer speaker on mute, and place your phone on mute if it is not your turn to speak. This will eliminate background noises such as people beating their dogs, cussing out a football game on TV, burning dinner, heavy breathing, telling the kids to knock it off, or cussing out other guests because you mistakenly think they cannot hear you.

[3] Please keep your comments respectably brief, and your questions concise. Let us know who the question is directed at.

[4] The views of the hosts are their own, and they do not necessarily agree with or endorse all of a guest’s opinions or any product they may promote on the show.

[5] We are not lawyers, and you should not depend on us for legal advice because we are unqualified to practice law. If you need advice on your specific case, you should take your information to a licensed practitioner who can assess it on an individual basis and provide competent legal opinion on the matter.

[6] Bring your new ideas and solutions for improving the integrity of the justice system and HHS. Necessarily, we must acknowledge our frustrations and the shortcomings of the system in order to improve it. However, beating down and berating the justice system and all players in it exacerbates the problem and imputes acts of misconduct to the honest and good professionals who uphold justice. Please keep things constructive and positive, focused on building a better justice system for our kids.
