    Dead People Get Stimulus
    Checks

    MYFOXNY.COM - This week, thousands of people are getting stimulus checks in the mail. The problem is that a lot of them are dead. A Long Island woman was shocked when she checked the mail and received a letter from the U.S. Treasury -- but it wasn't for her.

    WATCH **** BRENNAN'S REPORT (VIDEO, LEFT)

    Antoniette Santopadre of Valley Stream was expecting a $250 stimulus check. But when her son finally opened it, they saw that the check was made out to her father, Romolo Romonini, who died in Italy 34 years ago. He'd been a U.S. citizen when he left for Italy in 1933, but only returned to the United Stated for a seven-month visit in 1969.

    The Santopadres are not alone. The Social Security Administration, which sent out 52 million checks, says that some of those checks mistakenly went to dead people because the agency had no record of their death. That amounts to between 8,000 and 10,000 checks for millions of dollars.

    The feds blame a rushed schedule, because all the checks have to be cut by June. The strange this is, some of the checks were made out to people -- like Romonini -- who were never even part of the Social Security system.

    I can personally vouch for as this being true. Last year my grandfather past away and when my mother and I were getting all of his affairs in order and all the financial stuff squared away we were notified that my grandfather would be receiving his stimulus check. My mother told them that he was deceased and their response??? Well, it's going out any way.

    Do my mother and I believe it should have happened? No.

    Were my mother and I going to argue, since she was the one who in the end was going to be receiving it? No.

    But hey, whatever.

    Mistakes happen in the gov't and when they do it's usually on a huge scale... Which is why they shuld stay out of the private sector.
