Paternity Fraud & Prevention

A man supporting both a child and the mother of that child will spend most if not all of his income on them based on a lie (It’s your child) perpetrated by the mother, this amounts to roughly $20,000 a year (minimum income), over 18 years.

This amounts to a total fraud of $360,000 for $20,000/year, at $60,000 we’re already beyond the million dollar fraud at $1,080,000.

While men who are forced to pay child support are told “You should have kept it in your pants”, female scam artists who embezzle men by means of paternity fraud are never brought to justice even though “You should have kept your panties on” would certainly apply. This is a deliberate, conscious, calculated act of deceit.

And the numbers speak for themselves:

The latest figures for 2007-08 show that out of 3,474 tests ordered, 661 or 19% named the wrong man. [UK]

An incidence of 17% to 33% (median of 26.9%). Most at risk were those born to younger parents, to unmarried couples and those of lower socio-economic status, or from certain cultural groups

To curb this epidemic we demand systematic, obligatory, paternity testing. This will prevent issues of trust and will ascertain fatherhood. The very real certainty of being discovered will be an efficient crime deterrent and will make for stronger family bonds.
