A Federal police triggered, on the morning of this Tuesday, 6th, the Operation Checker. About 12 federal police officers carry out two search and seizure warrants in Umuarama, Paraná, with the aim of dismantling a fraud scheme in the receipt of the emergency aid and to identify the involvement of a criminal organization in the action. According to the investigation, the fraudsters used computer programs that generated CPFs and software called “checkers” that indicated names capable of receiving assistance from the federal government.

The money was withdrawn directly from the ATM or through PIX transfers. The damage caused to victims and public coffers, according to an initial survey, is close to R $ 1 million. From seized materials, it is believed that this number may increase. With the fraudulent action, hundreds of people were prevented from receiving the benefit. According to the PF, the scheme leader has been investigated for similar crimes since the start of the emergency relief program. The Federal Police added that, due to the worst moment of the pandemic, PPE was distributed to everyone involved in the mission.
