    I hope some of these people get caught. Some people are making good money when they have another income, and others are starving. We can only hope karma takes place.

     Yes. They can face both civil and criminal penalties.

    Absolutely! Unemployment fraud is a Felony. The length of your prison sentence could vary depending on the dollar amount and the circumstances although conviction of a Felony means a minimum of 1-year imprisonment although it could be several.

    Considering that fraud is a felony that can net you up to three years in prison and up to $20,000, yeah...

    Chances are slim that an unemployed person, simply trying to get some money such as during a pandemic of unemployment nationally, will do jail time, unless perhaps it's a big-time heist with thousands of dollars stolen based on lies.
