    Father of "55 Children" Arrested for Paternity Fraud

    (CBS/AP)



    NEW YORK (CBS) A man who reportedly claims to have fathered "55 children" has been arrested on charges of paternity fraud, which could land him up to 10 years in jail if he's convicted.

    According to Reuters, the unidentified man living in Paris reportedly registered 55 children by at least 42 different women in what police are calling a massive social benefits scam that could have cost the state over $1 million in annual claims by the mothers.

    The 54-year-old man of African descent was arrested in his home in Paris during a police raid. According to the court documents, his address had 50 people registered as living there.

    According to Reuters, he allegedly charged the women a fee to register the children, which then allowed the mothers and their children to claim social benefits and obtain residency permits. Some of the mothers reportedly said they had received approximately $8,000 per month for various allowances.


    "At the moment, 42 women have been identified and each claim that the man is the biological father of their child," police said in a statement to Reuters.


    "Investigations are ongoing and an investigating magistrate will decide whether DNA tests have to be administered to determine the children's paternity," a police spokesman said to the news organization.

    You know people just LOVE to stereotype black men as oversexed baby-making deadbeat loser scum. So they've just gotta include skin color at every chance they get. To deflect from their own BS.

    Skin color aside, neutering, anyone? Seriously, what's with people having so many kids? Dude never heard of a condom or something?

    The thing is, the language used capitalizes on the trope of the oversexed African man but when you read closely you see this is a case of probable welfare and immigration fraud. He likely didn't father any of the children of these 42 women. No neutering needed. He charges a fee, the women get to immigrate to France and collect benefits. It was a good set-up until they got busted.

    Identifying him as a African will get the anti-immigration faction in France all nice and riled up as well.

    I'm not clear if any of those kids are actually his or if he was just orchestrating a scam to collect benefits on OTHER people's kids...

    Living abroad? Thinking of moving, or just moved back? Check out the Expat Nappies group!

    that's the gist I got as well. Not that he actually fathered these kids.
