At Louisiana stores in Springhill and Mansfield, cards registered no spending limits, prompting recipients to go on buying binges.CUT THESE FREE LOADERS OFF THE SYSTEM

Roger on that! I read that the free loaders communicated very effciently via cell phone, word of mouth, and even flippin pigeons in order to guarantee the fastest response to the card glich. Cleaned out the WallMart in a couple o hours. When the announcement was made over the wallmart intercom that the problem was fixed and the card were back to normal, quite a few of the culprits just left their slap full buggies of gov cheese and ribeyes. These types are simply a parasite amidst the rest of the human body whole. Of course there are other types as well, but these seem to be the most noiticable now a days.

Please take a moment to send a fraud report in! Make our voices heard, we will NOT stand for this crap! It is not FREE money or FREE food! Tax payers, you and me, are paying for this food. Shame on them and their entitlement "get all I can" mentality!!!!

Well, the first thing we need to know is....What the food stamp card looks like. What to look for when we're standing behind someone in the check out line. Does the card have the American Flag all over the front? Then we can procede to nosing around at their groceries. You know, see if they are buying better stuff than those of us who work for our food money. My buggy sure don't have no ribeyes in the mother f@#$er

We have a family down the road with three adult children and none of them work. All have children from toddlers to young adults. Two are married and on drugs. They brag about their welfare ribeyes, that's exactly what they call them. They have been reported and nothing has ever been done.They actually report each other!

Ha! I'm not sure. I googled the image and it was a blue and white card with yellow writing and the outline of Louisiana on it.

I meant the Walmart case where everyone went buck wild. I read that it will be Walmart's responsibility to charge them. That is CRAP! It is obvious fraud and misuse. Welfare should do something to every single person that went over their limit. If I was writing a bad check, would that be okay? Heck no it wouldn't!

Walmart will never file charges. These are their best customers and the ones that they prey upon.

Seventeen states were free and the EBT cards in Mississippi would not work at all. Jealous to da banco.

The funniest part, is the ignorant reply that Walmart put out. "We made a decision to continue accepting our customers' EBT cards so they could continue to purchase food and other necessities" Yeah right, Since when is 600.00 worth of Ribeyes a necessity? They deserve that 200 thousand dollar loss. Walmart sucks anyway.

Don't just send them a letter advising thet they received over their allotment in food stamps -- they already know that! Withhold future food stamp allotments until the overage is recouped. Maybe they will think twice about repeating this or similar pranks!

Yes, I know they know. But I read that it will be Walmarts responsibility to charge them. That's not right, if we KNOW they tried to fraud the system then they should be charged with fraud. Period. The state should take up those charges. I absolutely agree they should get their benefits yanked. But I'm fully expecting them to make them "pay back" what they stole out of future FS benefits. So, basically, the tax payor s paying THAT for them TOO!
