Professor Dinerstein:

I earned an LL.M. in International Trade Law from AU in 1984. My LL.M. adviser was former Dean Claudio Grossman, an outstanding member of the AU faculty.

During 1991 to 2019 I carried out a fraud scheme against the federal government. I defrauded the U.S. Social Security Administration of about $400,000, a felony. I have written a book about my criminal activities. The book refers to AU law school. Perhaps you might be interested in taking a look at the book. I understand that disability law is an area of your expertise.The text is at the following link.

I am an AU graduate. I earned an LL.M. in 1984. Professor Claudio Grossman was my faculty adviser. I am currently committing a felony against the government of the United States: a serious financial fraud. My Social Security Disability Claim that was awarded in 1993, and on which I still collect monthly benefits, was based on perjured documents created by my last employer, the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. I thought you would find the two attached affidavits amusing. This communication is not confidential. I think your colleagues in the House would also find this quite amusing. Representative Norton helped me get my benefits in 1993. She didn’t know she was participating in a fraud scheme.

Send my regards to Professor Grossman. He was a terrific and dedicated teacher.
