Woman gets $3.4M COVID grant she never applied for

HERE’S THE SCOOP:

  • A Florida gas station employee found her name on a list of recipients of COVID funds for restaurant owners.
  • However, Amy Williams said she never applied, never received the $3.4 million, and never worked in the food industry.
  • “I don’t have any money,” Williams said. “I’d really love to know how this happened.”

A federal database lists a Florida woman as a recipient of a $3.4 million COVID relief check. But there are two significant issues with that, Amy Williams said. She never applied for the funds, never received any money, and never worked in the restaurant business.

Amy Williams said she’s stunned that her name and an old address ended up database stating that she received millions in COVID Restaurant Revitalization Funds for a catering business.

Despite all of this, Williams’ name is at the top of the list of the 31 Daytona Beach businesses that received the COVID relief funds. She allegedly received the biggest check for a catering business that does not exist.

Williams works at a gas station, and her only tie to the food industry is that her husband works as a cook.

“I don’t have any money,” Williams said. “I’d really love to know how this happened.”
