Public Assistance Fraud is a Crime
Because public assistance fraud is a crime, substantiated investigations are referred for criminal prosecution or administrative sanctions.
You Can Help: If you know or suspect that someone is defrauding or abusing one or more of the programs that we investigate, please tell us. While many cases are the result of routine computer matches, many others could not have been detected without the help of conscientious and concerned citizens and taxpayers.

How are supposed to get a suspected frauds social security number?
That being said I have a neighbor with multiple homes complaining they can't get public assistance o. What they were getting ran out or was cut off. Not only does he own homes in several states but his wife has a business and income.
He's blaming it on a supposedly recent layoff but since 07ish he's been talking about selling this local house. It's basically a flip gone bad. He over payed at the peak of the housing boom now he is stuck. New Yorkers came down here like carpet baggers after the Civil War. They don't give a crap. Has the gall to complain about what we and other neighbors do or don't do affecting his short sale or loan modification. He doesn't understand those programs were intended for the destitute and not a incompetent flipper.
Welfare is for what you need and not want or your screw ups.
