To The Owner of EDD Sucks

in Pissed!

Thank you for putting up this site. I too was unemployed during the 2009-2010 time frame, so I am fully aware of how ugly EDD can get, and also how many lives have been damaged by this process.

I have spent countless hours over the last 6-7 years researching and documenting the fraud and corruption that EDD so much loves to subject us to. I have also had the help of two EDD insiders with my research, and the results have been mind boggling. The farther I got into the world of EDD, the more shocked I became. I see many frustrated posters on this site who suggest suing EDD, but I don’t believe that is the answer, and, a person would play hell ever finding an attorney to take the case, Pro Bono. I think subjecting EDD and their dirty deeds to the light of day would be a much better way to bring about the drastic changes that are needed. On your “About” page, you touch on some interesting points:

“We’ve all known people who abuse the system and have been for years. What I didn’t know is that the system actually caters to these people.”

I am quite sure that you have no idea just how deep that statement runs.
So my question to you is, are you content with hosting this site, or would you like to become more involved in bringing about the world of change that our friends at EDD so desperately need?

    So Mr. Reaper….what have you found out?? What kind of insider info can you share?? What is it that you think we can do to help all of our current situatiins?

      Cassie,

      Unfortunately there is nothing that I/we can share that would help any of you with your current difficulties. Posting the kind of information that we have, here in this forum, would forewarn EDD where we are headed, and it would only serve to further piss people off once they know the truth about what is going on. Myself, and a few others are working on a much bigger picture, and a lasting fix for the problems that we have all experienced with EDD.

      Okay, here is something that should help some of you: On the surface there is an automated phone system that is programmed to disconnect a certain percentage of callers with a message stating: “The maximum number of callers has been reached…” Have you ever wondered what is really going on in those EDD offices when you get that message? It’s not
      what you think. You might envision a call center buzzing with telephone activity, or an army of state employees, on the phone, doing their best to help every person they can possibly help, with the limited time that they
      have. Nope, neither of these scenarios are even close to accurate. During the dreaded hangup message, there is nothing going on inside most of those offices,and there is usually nobody taking any calls. That’s right, not one person taking calls! What a sick joke. The phone game is going to be a fact of life for a while longer. Both UI and SDI are available by phone to reach a live person, but it will take some effort. For SDI, the sequence is
      800-480-3287-1-3-1-3-0-0 After dialing the main number, as soon as the recording starts, hit the next number in sequence. Continue doing that until
      you get to the end. If you get disconnected at the end, just hang up and start over again. The process only takes 20-30 seconds. UI uses the same type of system, but it takes a little longer and uses a different sequence. The UI system also has two recordings that you cannot skip over,
      and you will just have to listen to the mind numbing bull shit. Once you get through to a live EDD rep, will you know the insider phrases that can be used to get your issue resolved quickly, or will you end up having to call back again after they hang up on you? Yes, it is just like In-N-Out. The phrases are not on the menu, but if you know them and use them correctly, you will be richly rewarded. There, I’ve said enough. Now let’s see how long it takes them to change the phone menu sequence…

      Change within EDD will only happen after a thorough house cleaning, and that will take national media attention and public outrage to accomplish. That is what we are working on. The reason it hasn’t happened already is that the people in EDD are quite comfortable preying on innocent people who have lost their careers, or those who have become disabled due to an accident or serious illness. If you think about it, both scenarios present EDD with an individual who is probably at one of the lowest points in his/her life. Dwindling financial resources, bills piling up, eviction notices, etc.. Of course this begs the question, what kind of sick bastard would find satisfaction in tormenting another human being who has ended up in this situation?

      My interest in this site is focused primarily on its data base of personal stories, the stories that detail the suffering and torment inflicted by EDD on innocent people who have had the misfortune of ending up here. These stories have all been posted in a public forum, so there is really no expectation of privacy. But, I will not use anything from this site
      without the owner’s permission.

    Cassie, I posted a rather lengthy reply to your questions, but I see that it has been deleted. Interesting… Did you happen to see it before it was deleted?

    • Cassie

      Yes I did! I came here again because it shiwed 3 comments but there are only 2…your lengthy reply being gone! Very interesting! You really didn’t say anything that we all pretty knew or have heard before about why it’s so hard to get a live person. I’m confused as to why that was deleted and not your main post? Just weird! I’m glad I don’t use my real identity on here! Makes me wonder who is really running this website.

        Cassie,

        Well, wonder no more! Its no secret that EDD Personnel patrol this site, (and not to help anyone either) but just how far into the site do those tentacles reach? I placed a couple of poison pills into the post that was deleted. The first one would have put them on REd Alert, and the second barb, well, we saw the results.

        Yeah, it’s a good idea not to use your real name here. Just read the post “Fuck EDD It Ruined My Life” Too bad he didnt know the insider phrases. He could have gotten his claim certified over the phone, and had his money the next day.

          I really feel bad for the guy but if it took 6 weeks to get his UI, then there was more to his sitatuon. It doesn’t take that long for just a lay off. Trying to get a hold of a live person is very frustrating…he should have been calling non stop, everyday. Our hands are tied on that.

        • Kimmy

          What are the insider phrases? I smell a documentary exposing this shit.

          • Reaper

            Okay, but be advised. EDD personnel regularly patrol this site to monitor what we are talking about. No telling how they will respond to this.

            The next time you have one of their reps on the phone, ask them to certify you over the phone. After they refuse, say “But I gotta pay my rent tomorrow!” Funny as shit, just like a duck in a shooting gallery, the rep will do an about face and then certify you over the phone. I’ve done it several times now. It will be interesting to see what they do now that some of this stuff is being made public. Documentary? Yeah, stay tuned. There is lots more to come…

        http://www.edd.ca.gov/About_EDD/EDD_Legislative_Reports.htm reports to the elected officials. Want real change ? Get rid of the union. Supreme court will rule this summer CA is RTW state. Right to work. Impossible to fire bad apples.
