According to the indictment, Bock is accused of recruiting others to create fake sites and claim they were falsely feeding children.

“The defendants also created and submitted false documentation to carry out the scheme. They submitted fraudulent meal count sheets purporting to document the number of children and meals served at each site. The defendants submitted false invoices purporting to document the purchase of food to be served to children at the sites. ”

The DOJ press release stated that the organization “also submitted false attendance lists that purported to list the names and ages of children who received meals at the sites every day” and even used “a website called www.listofrandomnames. com” to create fake names.

The Justice Department accuses the defendants of buying luxury cars and homes. They are also accused of purchasing commercial real estate in Kenya, Turkey, Ohio and Kentucky.
