Notice Of Claim to sue the Human Resources Administration (HRA).

First and foremost I always treat the HRA staff and other public assistance recipients with the utmost respect at all times. 

Treating the people at HRA respectfully if more important than any of this. 

I always treat everyone at the New York Courts, NYC Comptroller’s Office, 60 Center Street, Clerk’s Office, Security Guards, etc. with the utmost respect at all times. 

It’s not any of your fault that people I know pay some of the top law enforcement in the United States to sabotage and harass people including me. 

People I know pay law enforcement to harass and sabotage me every day. 

Now I’m living in the street homeless being harassed by law enforcement agencies with multi billion dollar budgets. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t date. I don’t do anything illegal. 

I’m going to mention other government agencies in this Notice Of Claim although this Notice Of Claim is only to sue HRA. 

For example, I’m going to mention the NYPD and New York City law enforcement because in my opinion, I suspect law enforcement is the reason I’m having the issue with HRA. 

I think HRA is doing a great job. 

There wouldn’t be an issue if it wasn’t for law enforcement threatening HRA to sabotage my public assistance case. 

In my opinion, law enforcement runs around behind the scenes at various federal, state, and city government agencies and sabotages me. 

For example, the IRS just sent back my tax return saying they didn’t like my signature and I have to resign it. That’s after being told I can’t efile or drop off my tax return at the IRS office located at 290 Broadway, New York, NY 10007. 

The motivation is because people I know pay law enforcement to sabotage and harass people. 

In my opinion law enforcement is their own oversight and the NYC Department of Investigations, NYPD Internal Affairs, the CCRB and others don’t have any power over law enforcement. It’s vice versa. 

In my opinion, any law enforcement that gets in trouble is approved by law enforcement. 

Attached you will see a copy of my storage bill for April 2023.

Attached you will see that HRA received a perfectly clear copy of my storage bill more than a week ago via Access HRA. 

The way the process works is qualifying people receiving public assistance are allowed to get an inexpensive storage room to keep their things if they are homeless like me or living in a shelter. 

My storage room is about $40 per month. 

Public assistance recipients upload a copy of their storage invoice every month via Access HRA and it’s paid. 

I suspect that law enforcement tells HRA not to pay my storage invoice for a few reasons. 

  1. To harass me. 
  2. To sabotage me. 
  3. To distract me. 
  4. Law enforcement wants me to have to go to the HRA Benefits Access Center Lower Manhattan Address: 109 E. 16th Street, New York, NY 10003 in person. When I go to the center law enforcement will have people blow drug smoke in my face, shove their phones in my face, crash into me, block me from walking, they have women try and set me up as a stalker, and more. I just ignore it, take the abuse, and treat everyone respectfully. 

I would like to sue HRA for $150,000. 

I just paid my storage bill out of my cash assistance so my belongings don’t get thrown in the garbage. I would like to be reimbursed for that. 


I’m a full time student at Baruch College. 

Full time students at Baruch College on cash assistance receive money every week from HRA for an unlimited MetroCard. 

In my opinion, of course law enforcement went running over to HRA and told them not to give me my MetroCard money. 

I finally started receiving the MetroCard money in March 2023 when I was supposed to start receiving it in January 2023. 

HRA sent me about $100 to retroactively cover the weeks I didn’t receive the MetroCard money. 

The MetroCard money is about $120 per month. I was owed over $240. 

This isn’t a lawsuit against the NYPD or law enforcement. 

I’m not saying everyone at HRA or the people in charge of HRA know about my situation I just detailed above. 

I’m saying I believe that a few people at HRA out of the hundreds or thousands of HRA staff helped law enforcement sabotage my case. 

I don’t blame them, law enforcement are scary.

This is a lawsuit against HRA for not reporting law enforcement for demanding that my HRA public assistance case be sabotaged regarding my storage and MetroCard. 

In my opinion, most if not all of what I just wrote can be easily verified by the NYC Comptroller’s Office with a few phone calls. 

One more time. 

I have a unique situation with people I know having the money and contacts to pay law enforcement to sabotage and harass me. 

I don’t have any issue personally with anyone that works for the federal, state or city government. 

I just want to be treated the same way as anyone else. 

I have dozens if not hundreds of lawsuits planned as a reaction for law enforcement declaring war on me because people I know are paying them under the table. 

Therefore I’m politely, patiently, and respectfully moving forward and going through the legal processes until I get law enforcement to stop sabotaging and harassing me. 

I’m thinking long term regarding all the lawsuits. 

I’m going to be respectfully interacting with the NYC Comptroller’s Office, New York Courts, and many others for years into the future due to the mess that law enforcement created for me.

Plus law enforcement is still harassing me and running scams on me today. 

For example, law enforcement pays civilian women and men in regular clothes to blow drug smoke in my face, shove their phones in my face, crash into me, etc. I just ignore them. 

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, the NYC FBI, NYPD Precincts and Internal Affairs, US Attorney NYC, and many others blocked my phone number and email. They aren’t helping me.  

Thank you very much for your consideration. 

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me.
