LA man allegedly obtains $3M in state unemployment benefits using identities of 23 inmates, others

A Los Angeles man indicted by a federal grand jury this month for possessing methamphetamine and unauthorized debit cards is suspected of using the identities of 23 inmates and others to obtain more than $3 million in state unemployment benefits, according to court records.

Edward Kim, 35, allegedly submitted at least 400 fraudulent claims with the California Economic Development Department from March 30 to Sept. 8, 2020, according to an arrest affidavit filed by U.S. Department of Labor Special Agent Anthony Clark. At least 120 of those EDD claims were filed under the names of inmates incarcerated in California prisons, authorities said.

Kim was arrested in November following a traffic stop by La Habra police, who allegedly discovered methamphetamine and EDD materials.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Labor and EDD declined to comment on Kimís arrest or the fraud he is accused of perpetrating.
