Re: HRA Lawsuit

Date: 1 August 2020

Greetings,

Before I get into it, I would like to share first and foremost I treat everyone at New York City Human Resources Administration / Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS), CUNY, and the New York City Comptroller’s Office with the utmost respect at all times regardless of how they treat me. I understand that everyone is doing their best under the circumstances. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record. I have been homeless for 5 years. People I know from New York pay New York law enforcement to torture me in every way imaginable and a lot of ways you probably never thought of. 

I would like to sue the New York City Human Resources Administration / Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS) for $105,000.00. It doesn’t mean I’m mad at them. I’m not mad at HRA. It doesn’t mean I’m going to ever be disrespectful to them because I would never be disrespectful to them. 

I appreciate the help from the city. I don’t blame HRA for the way they are treating me, I hold New York law enforcement responsible. I highly suspect that New York law enforcement is going behind the scenes at HRA and forcing HRA to sabotage my case. 

If anyone doesn’t believe that goes on just quickly Google what NYPD police officer’s have been arrested for in the past 3 to 5 years. Murder, rape, child abuse, drug dealing, etc. People I know have been paying law enforcement to run scams for decades. I’d be happy to provide my civilian enemies names in private because I don’t want to be sued for defamation. 

1. In the last month, HRA moved my public assistance case certification from November 2020 to December 2020. This is the most clear cut obvious case of New York law enforcement going behind the scenes of New York City government offices and trying to sabotage me. If I’m wrong let me know. I’ll be as happy as can be. 

It is not a coincidence that I’m receiving my student loans around October 15, 2020. If my HRA public assistance case recertification would have stayed on November 2020 I could have recertified either on September 15 or October 1, 2020. My Chase bank statement would show that I don’t have any money besides the money I receive from HRA. 

Now my HRA public assistance case has been moved back 1 month to December 2020. The first day I can submit my HRA public assistance case recertification is either October 15 or November 1, 2020. When I submit my Chase bank statements to HRA on the new date it is going to show a $5,000 deposit for my student loans. 

I was told that even though I’m on public assistance I am allowed to receive student loans. I was told by the CUNY Edge office at LaGuardia Community College that student loans would not affect my public assistance case at all. 

I sent an email to the Commissioner of HRA about the situation. I also sent a message to a customer service email provided by HRA.

2. I have been trying to update my mailing address with HRA for months. Every time I enter my new PO Box into Access HRA on the web or the HRA mobile app I receive an error message. I have very limited access to the mailing address that HRA has on file for me. 

The New York City government is a tech-savvy government. The NYC government has great websites and mobile applications. Now all of a sudden I can’t update my mailing address. 

That’s super convenient for New York City law enforcement who is trying to sabotage my public assistance case. Any important letters sent from HRA to me will be impossible for me to retrieve in a timely fashion. I contacted the CUNY Edge office at school and they said they can not update my mailing address with HRA. 

3. My HRA public assistance case was already dropped once for absolutely no reason. I never had any issues with anyone. I do exactly what I’m required. I always have all paperwork submitted on time or early. I always go anywhere I’m required to go by HRA. 

4. HRA stopped paying for my storage. If I’m correct HRA pays for people who qualify to have storage. I submitted the proper paperwork regarding my storage. The cost is $34 per month. I believe that is well below the average storage cost. 

I suspect that New York law enforcement was behind that one too. HRA has to process hundreds of thousands of transactions if not millions. The only reason I can imagine that HRA stopped paying my storage, is because New York law enforcement told them to stop paying it on the grounds that I personally paid a few months upfront with my student loans. 

There is no way that HRA would have held that against me without New York law enforcement micromanaging my life and sabotaging me at every turn. They do this to me everywhere. I can not imagine that there has ever been another situation when HRA denied a qualified person storage because of a prepayment. Especially after they had already been paying it and I’ve prepaid before just to be safe. 

5. I treat everyone with the utmost respect at all times. The only time I argue with anyone is sometimes on the phone with New York law enforcement and the civilians who work for them. Lately, I’ve cut it out. 

When New York law enforcement and their civilian sabotage team start to harass me my knee jerk reaction is to call New York law enforcement (FBI, NYPD, US Attorney, District Attorney, etc.) and complain. Sometimes the people who pick up the phone start to treat me like garbage and we argue. 

Not only does New York law enforcement have the audio from those calls, but they also have people follow me around and record me in the street. They have actual audio of the arguments from people recording me with their smartphones in the street. 

I’m sure New York law enforcement is chomping at the bits to use that audio out of context and say I mouthed off to someone at HRA, CUNY, etc. I’m not proud of arguing with New York law enforcement. When I see police officers and government employees in the street I’m always friendly. It’s just sometimes on the phone they know how to tear me to shreds. New York law enforcement has something called Chronic Caller Operators. Those are operators whose job it is to tear people to pieces on the phone and they are amazing at it. 

Now that everyone is wearing masks I’m sure the NYPD would love to make up some lies and say I mouthed off. I treat everyone with the utmost respect at all times. New York law enforcement has taken almost everything from me. Why would I possibly jeopardize my benefits with HRA or my schooling with CUNY when that’s all I have left? 

I have a 4.0 GPA after 27 credits with New Law law enforcement torturing me. Now all of a sudden New York law enforcement’s story is that I’m not smart enough to know that if I don’t keep my mouth shut I’m going to be in a worse jam than I am now. I have been sleeping in the street for 5 years, I don’t want it to get worse. At least I have money for food and I’m gaining an education. Needless to say, I’m walking on eggshells. 

Email to the NYC Comptrollers office about my HRA public assistance recertification date being moved.

Greetings,

Thank you for the response. I understand things must be very busy for all government staff. First and foremost I treat everyone at the NYC Comptroller’s office, the New York City Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS), and my college with the utmost respect at all times regardless of how they treat me. The NYPD and New York law enforcement are always trying to make up lies that I act out of order. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything.

I don’t have a criminal record, I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party at all. I have a 4.0 GPA at college with a 100% attendance record after 27 credits. I’ve been living in the street homeless the whole time.

I have a few questions about my situation with HRA. I’m going to make this email concise. People I know from New York pay the top law enforcement in New York to sabotage and torture people including me.

1. Why was my cash assistance recertification just moved from November 2020 to December? I suspect my recertification date was moved because if my recertification was kept for November, I believe I could have recertified my public assistance case on September 15 or October 1.

New York law enforcement and the NYPD know that my student loans will be given to me around October 15. They know that if the money from my student loans lands in my bank account at the same exact time as my recertification it might confuse the situation and cause a major inconvenience for me.

If I’m wrong, great, please let me know. My student loan amount is about $5000. Especially during these difficult times where so many people are applying for benefits and no one is meeting in person, I would not want to get lost in the shuffle. It’s going to happen during the coldest months of winter while I’m a full-time college student living in the street with everywhere closed.

I can’t even sleep on the subway platform in the chairs anymore. I used to like to sleep in the chairs on the platform at the Columbus Circle subway station. There is an NYPD transit police station in the subway station so I figure it’s as safe as it can be in that type of situation.

I was told by my school’s welfare office that it’s OK to receive student loans while on public assistance. I used to provide web marketing services. New York law enforcement shut it down. Now I’ve been living in the street for the past 5 years and go to college. When I went to a homeless shelter the NYPD had people harassing me and chasing me around the shelter the whole time.

I need my student loan money and public assistance to survive the winter. As far as I know, everyone else is allowed to get it. Why was my recertification date just switched from November to December, so that it lands on the same day I receive my student loans? I can not spend 1 million hours to put out 1 fire after the next that New York law enforcement creates for me while I’m living outside in the freezing cold and having to maintain my grades. Plus there isn’t going to be anywhere that allows people inside to study this winter.  

2. HRA stopped paying my storage even though I provided all the necessary documentation and I found the most inexpensive storage available. The storage cost is $34 per month. They might say I paid my storage in advance so they won’t pay. I paid my storage in advance with my student loans because the police torture me. I was concerned if New York law enforcement makes up some lie to have my HRA case dropped (again) for no reason I didn’t want my belongings in the street. Has anyone else’s storage payment been canceled because the “client” prepaid their own storage?

3. I can not update my personal information is Access HRA https://a069-access.nyc.gov/accesshra/ I have been trying to update my mailing address in my Access HRA personal profile for months and I keep receiving an error message. 

4. There is more I’ll share later. 

I don’t take any of this personally.

Thank you and have a great day.

This is another email I just sent to Steven Banks the Commissioner of The New York City Human Resources Administration / Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS)

Greetings,

My HRA public assistance case recertification was moved from November 2020 to December 2020 for some reason. I’m not sure why.

I believe I can recertify my public assistance case on either October 15 or November 1. Not sure which one, but it’s one or the other. Normally I would be able to recertify my HRA case on September 15 or October 1.

Is it going to affect my pubic assistance case that a $5000 student loan is going to hit my account literally the day I’m up for recertification of my public assistance case now that the date was moved? I was told I was allowed to receive a student loan while on public assistance. I just want to make sure.

I want the student loan 100%. I need it to survive this winter. I’m not going to a homeless shelter and everything is closed including the subway where I normally sleep when it’s freezing outside. I wouldn’t go to a homeless shelter, I’ve been there and I don’t like it. I’ll leave it at that.

I’m going to spend a few dollars of my student loans to rent access to co-working spaces that I can use to get out of the cold for a few hours here and there and get my schoolwork done.

Of course, I have to throw in here I have a 4.0 GPA after 27 credits with a 100% attendance record. All while being homeless the whole time.

Please provide any feedback you deem appropriate.

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
