Email to HRA about my welfare case on July 6, 2022.

 314 total views

Greetings HRA,

First and foremost, thank you very much for all the help and information. 

I believe there might be a ;mistake with my Access HRA account. 

Last month my SNAP account or food stamps were added to my account on June 10, 2022. 

Today is July 6, 2022 and I’m not seeing any future payments on my account. 

Usually by now my Access HRA account would show when the next future payment. 

My next recertification is for June 2023. 

I’m a full time student at Baruch College. 

My classes start back up on August 25, 2022. 

In the meantime, I’m waiting for my next interview for RF CUNY. 

Can someone please look into my account and see why there are no future payments showing? 

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine

Opinion: New York City law enforcement is still sabotaging me with the welfare office. June 22, 2022.

Greetings HRA, 

First and foremost I treat everyone at HRA, CUNY Edge, etc., with the utmost respect at all times. That is more important than anything. 

People I know pay New York City law enforcement to harass me every day. That’s the reason I’m homeless. 

I’m making the best of it. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record. 

I went to the HRA office on 14th Street with my monthly storage bill.

My Access HRA account says the check was mailed on June 14, 2022. 

I checked my online account for the storage room. It’s showing that the storage place didn’t receive the check. 

This has happened before it’s no big deal. 

I suspect that New York City law enforcement steals my checks out of the mail. 

I have had my mail stolen so many times I lost count including checks from HRA to the storage place. 

I don’t bother the USPS about it because from my experience there is no stopping law enforcement when they are running their usual scams.

I also wanted to mention that I’m not taking a class during Summer 1 at Baruch College. 

I was taking a class during Summer 1 at Baruch College and I dropped the class on June 13, 2022. 

The CUNY Edge office said that I might have a job with RF CUNY at the school so I’m waiting for that. 

I just wanted to give you a quick update. 

Thank you again for all the help. 

Have a great day.

Opinion: Email to Baruch College about summer classes, HRA, and the police harassing me. June 5, 2022.

 1,177 total views

Greetings Baruch College,

I’ve had dozens of conversations with the police and FBI about many of the topics covered in the class I’m taking this summer (phone records attached). 

I have never and will never mention a word about the police harassing me in any Baruch College class. 

I’m never saying a negative word about anything in any Baruch College class. 

I’m only going to speak positively about the government, courts, and laws in class. 

I’m not mentioning a negative word about the defamation laws that I have complained about to law enforcement dozens of times outside of school. 

I’m strictly positive and professional in my classes. 

I never mention a word about my personal life. I never mention a word that is negative. 

You said only to contact you if I have any issues at Baruch College. 

You told me not to contact the Chancellor and not to contact the Baruch College President. I haven’t and I won’t. 

New York City law enforcement just tried to run a nice scam on me tomorrow morning. 

New York City law enforcement sabotages me at HRA all the time. I never mentioned 1 word about it to the CUNY Edge office and I never will. 

I just coincidentally received an email today that I have to interview with HRA or my welfare case is going to be closed. 

Normally I would go running down to the HRA office on 14 St tomorrow morning. I would be waiting outside at 7 AM and be one of the first in. The police know that. 

New York City law enforcement has people tear me to pieces on the welfare line on 14 St. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence. 

I believe the police have people blow weed smoke in my face and harass me the entire time I’m on the welfare line waiting to get in. 

I’m not going tomorrow because it’s my first summer class. 

I’m not going to be harassed for two hours nonstop, while simultaneously people are blowing weed smoke in my face. Then I’ll show up to my first Zoom class high on weed after being harassed for two hours nonstop. That has happened to me so many times I lost count. 

I’ll go to HRA on Wednesday when I don’t have a class and the police can harass me all morning on my day off from school. 

Tomorrow morning I’m going to show up to Baruch College at 7 or 8 AM. I’m going to find a nice place to sit or stand in clear view of a security camera. I’m going to relax and start studying for class. 

Tomorrow during class I’m going to keep my mouth shut. If I’m called on or if I feel like participation is necessary I will be positive and professional. 

I will speak like the Baruch College President and the Chancellor are going to be sent a video of the class. 

This is the email I coincidentally received from HRA just now:

The due date for your Cash Assistance case with case number ending in 898H is approaching. If you do not complete the interview on 06/14/2022 your case may close. Log in to your ACCESS HRA account at nyc.gov/ACCESSHRA to submit your recertification.

You can update your notification preferences at any time by logging into ACCESS HRA and selecting “Update” on your ‘Profile’ page.

No one from HRA ever called, HRA said we don’t have to go in, HRA said they probably won’t even interview me.

Coincidentally I received this email the day before class begins. 

If I show up to HRA tomorrow morning, which I’m not, New York City law enforcement will chew me up and spit me out. 

I’m getting off to a great start for the summer semester. I’m not letting them do it and I’m not going to HRA until Wednesday. 

I’m about to email the Commissioner of HRA’s office about it right now too. 

After the police sabotage my HRA case over and over which is well documented, the Commissioner’s Office cleans it up. 

Thank you and have a great day.

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. I never participate in controversial conversations at Baruch College out of respect for people’s feelings. I love Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York. My goal is to pass. Grades are not my priority. I’m at CUNY to learn. I have been living in the street homeless for five years so it’s a miracle that I’m able to attend college. I don’t care if someone at Baruch College pours a can of paint on my head, I have never and will never say a disrespectful word to anyone at Baruch College under any circumstances. I’m walking on eggshells trying to go from homeless to home. In my spare time I’m cold calling hedge funds trying to launch startups and I promote myself on the Internet. Hopefully one day soon I can get back into an apartment. I believe in giving back even with my current situation living in the street homeless. One of the best things the government does in my opinion in addition to CUNY is the New York State Real Estate Salesperson’s License. During the last two decades, I have recommended thousands of people who are living check to check in New York City and the tri-state to obtain the license. 

Email to the New York City public assistance office about my storage room. May 14, 2022.

Greetings HRA,

First and foremost, thank you and your staff for the amazing help you provide to New Yorkers including myself. I always treat your staff with the utmost respect at all times. 

I just uploaded my new storage bill on May 11, 2022. The bill is due by June 1, 2022. 

I downloaded the bill PDF from the storage company on my phone. Then I took a screenshot of the storage bill PDF. Then I uploaded the picture storage bill PDF into the HRA app. 

From my experience, the result is a perfectly clear copy of my storage bill reaches your staff. 

For the past two or three months, I submit my storage bill and the check doesn’t go out until past the due date. Also, I have to email your office through the public web form every month or the check isn’t mailed to the storage company. 

I’m not sure why that’s the case. 

It seems like common sense that everyone on public assistance doesn’t have to visit their HRA center every single month. That would be a huge amount of extra work for your team. 

I also can’t imagine that every month, all New Yorker’s on public assistance or SNAP (food stamps) have to contact your staff via this web form. 

Please help me if you can figure out why I have to contact your office every month to have the check mailed to my storage company. I asked the good people at HRA 14 Street and they don’t know. 

If there is anything else I have to do please let me know and I’ll do it immediatly. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: NYC law enforcement is threatening HRA to hold back my welfare MetroCard like they have done several times before. 

 960 total views

If you’re not on welfare, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. 

People I know pay NYC law enforcement (NYPD, etc.) to harass, sabotage, tease, attack, and rob me. 

Disclaimers: Use this information at your own risk. Results are not guaranteed. Verify everything yourself. All information is subject to change. If you have an emergency call 911. 

I was providing web marketing services to companies and NYC law enforcement chased away several of my clients. 

Now I’m homeless and on welfare. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. 

The NYC welfare office (HRA) or public assistance office gives me money for a MetroCard because I go to college. 

Now for some reason, HRA stopped giving me the money for my MetroCard. Therefore I have to take the money out of the little money I have for food to buy a MetroCard every week because I’m not going to jump the turnstile. 

I suspect NYC law enforcement is the reason that HRA isn’t giving me my MetroCard money. NYC law enforcement runs around to every government agency I interact with and tries to sabotage me. 

Regardless if HRA helps NYC law enforcement sabotage me or not, I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

This is a letter I’m about to email to the Department of Social Services Commissioner. 

Greetings Commissioner, 

HRA saved my life and is still saving it. Thank you. 

I always treat all staff of HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’m a full-time student at Baruch College, The City University of New York. 

In addition to HRA being very helpful, the CUNY Edge office is great as well. If I’m correct I believe that HRA has all the necessary documentation from Baruch College, The City University of New York to confirm that I’m a full-time student. 

People I know from Long Island pay the top NYC law enforcement (NYPD) to run around and try and sabotage my every move. They are the reason I’m homeless. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t date. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. I’m just broke because NYC law enforcement robbed me and I have bad credit. 

I suspect the reason I’m not receiving the MetroCard money is that as usual NYC law enforcement is threatening the person at HRA in charge of sending the MetroCard money and telling the person not to send it. 

That is why I’m contacting you, the Commissioner. 

I don’t take it personally. I’m not upset. 

Please help. If you require any additional information from me please let me know. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to Baruch College about tuition and financial aid.

 300 total views

Greetings,

First of all, I love Baruch College and CUNY. I’m having the best time ever. 

My professors are amazing. The support staff is amazing. Baruch College CUNY is the best opportunity ever. 

I finished almost all my schoolwork for the Fall 2021 semester about a month early. College is my number one priority. 

I’m not sure who I’m supposed to contact about the tuition that I owe, so I’m contacting the three offices. Please let me know if there is anyone else I should contact about this matter. 

I’m signed up for two classes this summer 2021. The online Baruch College website says I owe $459 for summer 2021 in addition to my financial aid. 

If I drop one of the summer classes and only take one class this summer, would that lower the amount of money I have to pay to attend Baruch College this summer? 

If yes, I’ll drop one summer class and only take one class this summer instead of two. 

Depending on how much I will have to pay to attend summer 2021 classes, I might not take any classes this summer. 

It all depends on what the Department of Social Services / Human Resources Administration requires.

Please let me know if dropping one class and only taking one class this summer will lower the money owed when you can. Thank you:-)

If taking one class this summer isn’t included in my financial aid, I might take the summer off. I’ll make the decision after speaking with HRA and seeing what the cost is to take one class this summer instead of two. 

The online Baruch College website says I owe $283 for Fall 2021. Can I pay that amount out of my Fall 2021 student loan refund? Or do I have to pay it before the semester starts? 

If I’m allowed, I’ll pay the balance due for fall 2021 out of my Fall 2021 student loan refund. If I’m required to pay the balance before then, I’ll pay for the fall in the next few weeks. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
