Things have gotten cash-y! It’s no surprise that cash is king in the day and age, but it seems that Cash App, a digital payment service, has become the currency of choice for claimants who shouldn’t be working—or receiving any additional income—but still want to make some money. We have found that more and more claimants are using Cash App to receive income they are not entitled to while on workers’ compensation.
True People Check investigations have discovered multiple instances of people on workers’ compensation using Cash App on their social media as a means of earning income. We’ve seen people selling clothes, catering services, providing discounts at stores and clubs, and selling kitchen products to name a few.
But what is cash app? Cash App is a peer-to-peer payment platform. Think of it as an online Venmo, where cash can be sent or received and stored within a mobile application. It’s no wonder Cash App has become so popular with fraudulent claimants—it provides an easy and quick way to receive money without having to worry about banks or other traditional banking services detecting their activities.
