Could you come up with $73k in 10 days? They are hitting her for back rent. There was a time I could give you a list of people that had two social security numbers. Getting low income housing or monthly checks. Single moms living with their boyfriends, driving better cars than most, in their own homes, getting monthly assistence. This country is full of such frauds. We just keep paying, don't we.
