I was wonder how to report someone for abusing the system. I know someone how has a link card with $350 and month on it, medical card, utility assitance.

The thing that bothers me is this person works for cash in a bar during the day for a few hours a week and is able to buy the following in cash in the past two years:
1) Jetski $7500
2) Scooter $2500
3) Two Boats $6000
4) Corvette $5000
5) Tires for Corvette
6) Hut Tub
7) Swimming Pool
8) Two Hot Tub Covers
9) 50" LCD TV
10) Pool Table
11) Boat Dock $1200
12) Wii + Games
13) New Patio Furniture
14) Wooden Swing Set $1200

The list could go on and on. It makes me sick seeing someone buying all of this when you have a link card and medical card. I know they get a tax return but doesn't pay taxes since they rent there home and work for cash in a bar during the day time.

Don't forget about the monthly living expense of $800 rent, gas bill, water bill, cable / internet/ phone bill, garage bill, sewer bill, car insurance on two cars.

Well first off, if this person is only working in a bar a few nights a week, they would not be able to afford all of that stuff, now either your exagerating the situation, or they are doing something illegal on the side, because if they can afford all of this working only a couple of hours a week at a bar, I need the name so that I can get a job their too....

7500 for a jetski??

why bother posting such exaggeration?

obviously if these things really existed there is income coming from somewhere and the IRS would take notice automatically since these high ticket items make such a list to purposefully entrap those who indulge with their illegal earnings.

you idiot.. getting money for food isnt going to be wasted by anybody unless they are mentally challenged and cant wipe their butt for themselves.

aside from that.. how do you know that the acts she has portrayed are not something that the government has hired to wind up the nerves of people such as yourself?

talking about how you have evidence towards neglect, but you rant and rave here on a forum rather than talking to the authorities.

come back when dcfs and the local police refuse to listen to you.. then and only then would you have some right to be seeking help from a forum.

i should know, because i am having trouble finding a lawyer to hear anything i have to say.

besides, i have asked the government for help because of a neglect and abuse from my SSI 'authorized representative' and i got nothing.. not even an email confirming that they heard what i said.

if you really think abusing food stamps is gonna do some good for your credit, you'd be sadly mistaken.

i am just imagining you screaming 'help this lady is getting fat for free!!'

Haha you're a f*ckin dumass!! I couldnt tell you how many people I know with link. They all are living a better life than me and I have the joy of working for a living. I could see someone on link having all of the things he listed. I hate link! Wasted tax payers money, I would say let them all starve but we all know that if we got rid of link they wouldnt. They just wouldnt be able to afford some of the things on that list. A few friends of mine decide we would see how hard it is to get link, one friend is a pharmacist he makes $150,000+ a year, guess what? he was approved for link. Another friend of mine which is an older gentlemen I wont get into his career but he makes $200,000+ a year and he was approved for link. Its easy you just go in there and lie. Both my friends never used there cards and canceled them. Funny to because when they canceled them the people at human services didnt understand why they were canceling and actually tried to stop them from canceling and offered them other programs!!! Its all a joke! Just like you my friend!

i completely agree with Kane in Rockford. Its a freaking joke. The system is so messed up. I work at a doctors office that takes the medicaid card, and I see these girls working part time or not at all but having it all, such as nice cars, clothes,nails and hair done. OH! and also section 8 and link card! Wow! So basically the hard-working tax-payers are paying their unneccesary stuff while WE do work hard and pay our bills,health, and food and pay those peoples stuff too! WHHAT A JOKE!!!!

go to a junk yard and pick up a car carcass for $1,000
then go get yourself a refurbished engine for $1,000
and have yourself a decent looking car that runs really good for $2,000

fashionable clothes used to be easy to get.
now it seems impossible.
a pair of jeans for $10 -$20
if you bought a new pair of pants or a new shirt every other month.. its possible to see yourself with some nice clothes.

those clothes werent worth $80 or even $40
the dye runs out and the material fades a lot.
the denim gets so dry that the washing machine puts holes in them.

a real pair of jeans will look like a comparable $20 pair of jeans in 5 - 6 years.
the discount jeans will be faded and looking very used after only 2 - 3 years.

the expensive stuff has twice the lifespan.
and some of the discount stuff was absolutely ripped to pieces in about 1 year.

you do realize that there are very rich neighborhoods.. like anything between chicago and matteson.
let those people spend their inflated checks and purchase used from them?

there are more details that surround complaint than simply having the system exist.
personally, i cannot stand grocery store food.
i can walk from one side of the store to the other and cannot find a single meal that makes me want to eat.
there is nothing that can be done about it because we are forced to spend our money at the grocery store.
i feel like cooking is a pain in the butt.
chewing is even harder.
and swallowing the food that doesnt hit the spot is downright enough to make me wanna whine/cry.

section 8 isnt taking any new applications.
they havent for years.
the only public housing is an apartment complex with tiny apartments that could lead to a personality disorder.

i will be the one to say,
its not about wanting to work or not wanting to work.
its about emotional and mental problems.
you might be suffering, but you are usually just one or two steps away from being in the same situation.
suffering is not the same as being tortured or often (usually) harassed.

there are thousands of people who are simply insensitive to the abuse and carry on without ever noticing.

Ok you guys do realize that there are not enough jobs for everybody in this country, and there is a recession? I know a million people who would kill for a job, and hate being on public assistance, but because most of the jobs are already taken by mexicans (not prejudice at all just stating a fact) so what are they to do starve or let there children starve, because they cant find a job. Or how about the ones that are going to school to better themselves, and are taking to many classes because they want to get it over with quick and fast, so they either cant work or cant find a job that will work with their school schedule? You have to think about every scenario before you pre-judge people, everybody that is on assistance is not there because they want to be, granted that there are some that are, but not all.

Yeah there are peopel that lie just to get assistance, but it is not possible to have all of the items only working a couple hours and only a few days at a bar. And I dont know how you guys were aproved when I got denied because I was making $10 hr and I am a single mother of 3 children, so I really think your lying about that because they do check, you may get it that first month but after they run your ss# you wont be getting the next month or any other month after that.*knowyourfactsbeforeyougo puttingupdumbstuff* Oh and for the record, NO ONE, GETS CASH, its only for people who are far along in there pregnancy and cant work, so once again *knowyourfacts* and it is not hard to dress nice you can dress nice for just a little bit of money, there are stores that sell used clothes,and you can buy a brand new outfit for $25 bucks, so that argument is dead.

Ok, that could have been his unemployment card, that he was using to get cash...just because someone has a little bit of money does not mean they have enough to pay rent, bills, insurance, things for self and kids, and money to buy food...come on now people, use your heads for something other than trying to accuse people, when you dont know them or their situation.
