Boston DOJ Arrest Business Owner Fraudulently Taking Millions From PPP Program…

The DOJ in Boston have announced the arrest of a Winchester resident, Elijah Majak Buoi, 38, for seeking more than $13 million in PPP loans from the COVID rescue package.

BOSTON – A Winchester man was arrested today and charged with allegedly filing fraudulent loan applications seeking more than $13 million in forgivable loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for COVID-19 relief through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Elijah Majak Buoi, 38, was charged in a criminal complaint with wire fraud, and will appear in federal court in Boston this afternoon.

According to the complaint, Buoi is the president and CEO of an information technology services company, Sosuda Tech, LLC. Between April 2020 and June 2020, Buoi allegedly submitted fraudulent applications for over $13 million in PPP loans through SBA-approved lenders. In these applications, Buoi misrepresented the number of employees and payroll expenses and falsely certified that the United States was the primary residence for his employees.

Buoi also allegedly submitted falsified documentation in support of his applications for PPP funds. The complaint further alleges that Buoi ultimately received over $2 million in PPP funds. The government has seized approximately $1.98 million from Sosuda’s business bank accounts.

“The defendant tried to defraud an emergency program designed to help businesses, and their employees, survive the most difficult economic crisis since the Great Depression,” said United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling. “This behavior is reprehensible, and my office is committed to rooting out and prosecuting this kind of fraud wherever we find it.” (read more)

      I am not going to get too upset about 13 million dollars. The IRS and FBI do absolutely nothing about illegal aliens who rip taxpayers off for hundreds of million of dollars by filing fraudulent tax returns.

      “Between 2000 and 2011, federal research shows, the number of ITIN applications soared nearly eight-fold. By 2011, more than 70 percent of filers claimed they were entitled to the most generous of child tax credits, with claims totaling $4.2 billion. And a 2009 inspector general’s report calculated that more than two-thirds of the applicants seeking the credit had no tax liability; their refunds were simply profit.”

        If the IRS was doing it’s job most 401s would not be issued and most of these criminals would have no money. The money laundering pipeline would be shut down and true criminals would be behind bars including George Soreass and much of what Osama stole from this country would have never been stolen and his many mansions would not exist.

          lieutenant-
          They actually have been charging people! Saw that even a hip hop/rapper (whatever) just got caught. Idiot falsified the info, didn’t use for purpose and went on one heck of a spending spree. Now that one cracked me up. Guess he will have a lot of subject matter to write songs about. And his girlfriend/fiancé will have to give up her diamond.

          Go to the Justice.gov website for news releases. I check at least once a week. Just scrolling and looking at reporting will keep you busy for awhile. And if you want to verify the information–just DUCKDUCKGO and type the name-info in and that will help. I do it when I want to see pic of the person. A lot of times they list the charge, but put in the date of sentencing. Then later how much time they got is usually another story-or you can look it up.
          Ice.gov has some good reporting on their website also.
          DEA.gov-they have some stories…just some-but worth checking out.

            4gypsybreeze: TY for taking the time & effort of posting your comment (saved me posting same). All it takes a little effort to let your fingers do the walking to get the information desired. Under PDJT, indictments, arrests and convictions have nearly tripled, the focus has been financial theft/fraud, pedophiles online/dark web/international rings/domestic, currency exporting, intellectual property theft, and etc. PDJT DOJ nation wide has made Financial, visa abuse & human trafficking top priority and criminals really under estimated the extra scrutiny PDJT admin has placed on any federal financial appropriations since day 1. He knew the criminals were all going to line up first for PPP loans, those same criminals would have given a cut to DNC (they are hurting financially-no more easy money). Justice may be slow in DC, but when it comes (its coming, no doubt) it won’t sooth the naysayers, they’ll just find something else to whine about.

        I check them all at least once a week. I check the main Justice.gov websites for their news releases. If you have the time, look at the number of medical/medicare/medicaide money that has been ripped off.
        Also interesting is the number of pervs-child pornography, molestation, etc. -Disgusting
        Of course these are the stories the fake news doesn’t report.
        They should. If people like this **&&^^!! knew that they were–yes, they are—actually prosecuting them for fraud (PPP, etc.), maybe –just maybe- they would think twice. There are also Regional Justice sites, but they are pretty lame when it comes to the reporting. The main Justice is the best. Ice.gov is good. DEA is so-so.
        Take an aspirin—you are going to need it.

    I bet he has a day job as he starts up this business. Winchester, even in a cheap place is still likely to cost $2,000-$2,500, maybe even $3,000 a month for a rental. Seriously Google it, if you don’t believe me, prices are ridiculous.

    He has four kids given the info on his FB page. One just graduated HS, another 8th grade. not going to be a good situation for his family.
