GAO: ‘Massive Fraud’ In FCC Lifeline Program

A new GAO report found massive fraud within the FCC’s Lifeline program, which subsidizes cellular and broadband service for low-income Americans. The agency’s three-year audit of the Lifeline program (June 2014 to May 2017), found that more than one-third (36%) of Lifeline customers could not be confirmed as actually eligible for the program. The GAO also found that $1.2 million annually went to fictitious identities or recipients who were dead.
