Seven construction companies have been found to have hired illegal aliens in a multimillion-dollar fraud scheme against the government. All seven of the companies did business in Marion County, South Carolina.
They used unlicensed check cashing companies in order for the illegal aliens to cash their checks. They were paid well below what normal construction workers were paid. Those companies issued fake worker compensation certificates.
The DOJ says that 12 executives have pleaded guilty and all could receive sentences of up to five and a half years in prison. On top of that, each one can be fined $253000 dollars.
Their scheme hurt eligible workers, millions in pay, and the local government tax revenues in the tens of millions of dollars.
On top of that, they defrauded the IRS of tax revenues that they should have paid.
This proves that illegal immigration is not a victimless crime. Marion County runs from Florence, SC down as far as Myrtle Beach.
These companies had a good thing going, but their only mistake was in not naming Hunter Biden onto their boards. Then, they never would have been caught, or at least not punished.
It is the biggest IRS tax scam that the county has ever known.

The biggest misconception about labor exploitation is that it’s a victimless crime and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Workers, competing businesses, people who have their identities stolen, and even the local economy are all victims of this crime.
This week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced guilty pleas among 12 individuals across seven construction companies in Marion County that were involved in an illegal hiring and fraud scheme which is now the largest criminal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) operation in the region’s history.
Executives at Daniel Lavoie Construction Services, Duran Masonry, Extreme Siding, Master Homes Calabash, Metro Concrete Finishers, Master Homes Design Center, and Paint By Numbers pleaded guilty for their involvement in the scheme that defrauded the government out of millions of dollars and cheated countless qualified Americans out of construction jobs.
