Can anyone answer me this? Why is it anyone collecting Welfare has a brand new Pick Up TRUCks, they always have new 4X4 ATV's and a few new and older snowmobiles on there front lawn?

These people all work, they get paid cash off the books, and scam the hard working tax payers in Foulton County.

The welfare system is broke and needs to be fixed.

PS alsp they all say they have no $ for food, but they are 300+ lbs?If you have no $ for food why are you 300lbs and overweight.

I have a few old friends who moved to Fulton County because it is much easy'r to collect Welfare, Wic, Food Spamps, Rent assistance from Social Services.

It is a well know fact they do not ask many questions, and everyone gets approved for Social Welfare in Fulton County.

PS my friends all work off the books - get paid cash and work the system like all do in Fulton county. Typical trailer park trash in my mind.

All my neighbors in Northville and my Uncles neighbors in Wells all collect Social services and work off the books, they get free refrigerators and appliances and qualify for Free Oil and Propane. Not sure whatÂ’s going on in this world, they all have brand new Pick Up trucks and get Social Services, what a scam they run.

Welfare Fraud running ramped in Northville and Wells.

All my family's neighbors in Amsterdam have welfare up and down their streets; montgomery county. They drive new SUVs, get takeout pizza, subs, whatever at local gas station/stores, and go to all the buffet places in town. You can hear them every day, yelling at one another in Walmart or Savalot or Aldis. Everyone else is quiet, getting groceries like civilized people, but then you hear the loud voices, yep, it's the Hispanics in Amsterdam, finally up at twelve o'clock, to shop. Oh, yeah, try going to Fastrac on Market St, especially after the movies let out, or a nice day. You'd think you were in Puerto Rico: loud, loud music blasting from every car, all the baby carriages and pregnant teenagers going to pick up their daily takeout food, it's horrible. Not the America I grew up in. If we stop paying Medicare or make it a condition, you get pregnant, we no pay, see how far people run from NYS. So sick of welfare. My parents were immigrants, no one helped them, they never got welfare, never had signs and labels and anything else printed in their native language, they learned english! We survived and were proud to be American. Now, let's have Spanish be the new language, everywhere. And hold out your hand, we'll give you the money. Not just the Hispanics are on welfare, not being prejudiced, but it's all you see in Amsterdam, over and over. A hispanic guy killed a white kid, and nothing happened, it was deliberate murder, a racist crime, and it was brushed under the rug. The bar is still open where it occurred, and no one cares in Amsterdam. It should be closed, and the guy and his friends put behind bars who murdered the poor white kid who was in the wrong place with the wrong gf who was the ex gf of a murderer to be.

Broadalbin is a town in Fulton County. That said, the few that get any kind of government support in our town are kept at bay in the trailer parks. Most of us that live here would like to see those places shut down because they are Welfare and drug havens in our little Havana on the lake! It disgusts me to see these people sleeping all day, collecting for a lifetime! Wasnt there once a cap on welfare like eight years and your off? Does that mean eight years for every household member? We the people, are sick of supporting, you the lazy! You will definately be sorry if we have any one of the great disasters that have been bestowed on the rest of the world, its gonna be hard using muscles you havent used in years and getting out of a bed that you dont have any longer! CUT THEM OFF ALREADY!

New York should adopt AZ welfare policy it's called " The Right to work ". No one can be on welfare for more than 2 years and they have agents that go to the houses. Birth control and no extra money for number of kids. The right to work and state has the right to refuse.

For all that are complaining about welfare fraud you all need to get your heads out of your butts. Fulton County is one of the most corrupt and crooked counties in upstate New York. First off the Department of Social Services needs to do their part much better than what they have done in the past. As someone stated earlier they do not ask a lot of questions and just about everyone gets approved. They need to be held accountable as much as the recipient. If social services did their job in the first place as the law states they should maybe no one would be in this situation and taxpayers can save even more money because they wouldn't have to pay some fraud investigation unit to do social services job they should've done in the first place. But then again the counties getting a percentage of any money they get back in restitution!
