Just by looking at someone u CANT tell if they are using someone else foodstamps.... If they are going to sell them why not buy them someone is going to. They are going to get what they want one way or another. I say buy them a few times then tell on them!!! Get something out of these sh?t people who have never worked.

Ahh, the food stamp debate again. While I don't receive food stamps I know people who do. they cannot buy bath soap, shampoo, toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, feminine products and other necessities of life with stamps. Times are tough and everones case is different. Its tough to judge them if you don't walk in there shoes. Sometimes they have no choice but to sell a few.

According to Tn DHS's OWN WEBSITE- it is only punishable if stamps sold total over $500. How crazy is that???

I thought the "stamps" were now on a swipe card like a debit card - and that it has the indvidual card holder's information on it. I also thought the food stamp recipient had to sign for the EBT card transaction - again, as if it were a debit card/credit card. Wouldn't that be forgery and a higher level of fraud?

Yeah, I guess I am that crazy. I would have thought it would be reported by store workers if they knew the parties involved. It's such a small town, most people know their regulars. Thanks for setting me straight.

You dumbasses dont make no decisions whether someone gets stamps or not, so shut the hell up about it.
People are getting the stamps and if they use them for food or use them to trade for an eight ball of coke its their decision NOT yours. Oh you say "I pay ma taxes and Im a paying fer them stamps blah blah blah" but you know what? YOU don't make the decisions about the stamps nopw do you?? I wish somebody would offer me 100 dollars in stamps for 5o bucks. Technically I aint allowed to take part in a transaction like that.
You whing babies ought to just be happy u dont need to get stamps.
I seen a woman at the grocery store just last week and Iknow she uses the stamps. I told her about the Tbones I had seen on sale back at the meat counter and she got like 12 pounds and invited me and my bud over for steak and beers tomorow night.
Get over yourselves whiners, your just jealous you'll be eating hot pockets and drinking water and we'll be feating like Kings and Queens.
how ignorant are you to brag about how you have some low life white trash friend whos gonna have you over for steaks. White Trash shoulda used a rubber and I wouldnt be buying losers like you steak. get a job!

That doesnt happen for several reasons-#1 cashier never see the card up close or the name on it. Customers just swipe it on the machine and enter the pin so clerks have no idea if the card has the correct name. 2- people do often legitimately go to the store for other ppl and use their fs card. For instance, an elderly person who might not want to get out in the cold or someone who doesnt own a car. So cashiers have no way to know if someone using another's card are doing so for a legal reason or if they have bought them so there is nothing they can report even if they did happen to see the card had someone else's name on it.

You are correct. I have gone shopping a couple of times for my daughter because she had to work a double and needed some things for her kids at home. Never was I questioned, nor asked for ID. She is a divorced mother of 2 and works full time, yet is still eligable for some help through food stamps.

Not so, I disagree. There is an old thing called "work", some of you may not know it though. So, continue to lay on your backs and pop out puppies for us "the worker bees" to support. Meanwhile, sale those EBT credits to fund your cig's, beer, oh and don't forget that body ink too. This shit makes me sick. Instead of EBT, spay their dumbasses!
