For some people, it seems hard to believe that the government would actually give $50,000 checks in what is supposed to be a "farmers settlement" to people who never farmed a day in their life. It sounds outrageous to believe that the government would give billions of dollars away to people who have no proof that they even filled out an application with the USDA.
Don't take my word for it - just ask Obama administration
. They are actively advertising
the fact that any woman can be eligible to receive up to $50,000 for claiming – without proof -- that the USDA refused to give her a loan application.
This is from the FAQ on the official government website FarmerClaims.gov
Who is Covered?

I went into the USDA office and they wouldn't provide me an application, so I don't have a denial letter or anything from USDA. Am I eligible for a claim and if so what do I need to provide?
You may be eligible to submit a claim depending on your specific circumstances. You may request a claims package and review the eligibility criteria contained in the claims package. If you have questions, you may consult with counsel or another legal service provider.
and look for yourself. You need the same information in Spanish? After all, there's also a "Hispanic farmers" settlement . No problema - aqui!
This is exactly the same low bar of proof that led to so much fraud in the Pigford
settlement. There's no need for a big investigation here - the Obama administration is telling you on a taxpayer-funded website into languages the people who claim to have attempted to farm and have no proof are still eligible for claims.
