Tragedy at Fastrac

Whitesboro, NY

#1 Feb 10, 2013
I was recently pumping gas at Fastrac on Oneida Street in Utica. I noticed the woman next to me pumping gas also. She drove a "pimped-out" Cadillac Escalade with giant chrome wheels full of screaming children. As she screamed threats of violence at her children, I noticed that she was pumping super premium gas and thought: "Wow she must be wealthy, I could never afford super premium on my paycheck, let ALONE an Escalade!" Now here is the tradedy.......... When the clerk asked her to pay her 120.00 dollar fuel bill, she proudly whipped out her Oneida County Benefit Card and swiped it confidently as if it were a Visa Gold. Free effin gas, OH MY GOD. I was speechless. I have never been so upset with a complete stranger in my life. No wonder people are going postal all over this country!! I stood next to her in disbelief as I pondered the giant deductions being taken out of my lowly forty hour check. week after week.

Saw the same thing with the same vehicle checking out at BJs with two grocery carts full of junk then swiping the card and loading everything in the escalade. I know how upset I was seeing this scam.

Try again those on full pa get cash assistance goes on the same card can be used as a debit card. That's why they want to restrict use at liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs. You must be one of those stupid Obama voters who thinks the government is looking out for the middle class bahaha...not.

An EBT (electronic benefits transfer) card may be used for fuel purchases depending on (1) what kind of EBT card it is (e.g., food only, unemployment benefits, etc.), (2) the state from which it is

many people who receive foodstamps and medicaid have name brand purses, cars, smart phones, have their windows open during the winter because it is to hot in their apartments. I have no cable, no smart phone, and my heat is on 60 - 62 when it is below zero. I don't understand it. I know it must be difficult to screen all those who go in for public assistance help, but seriously, look at their shoes, errings, cell phones, purses . . . if it's name brand - they have another source of income for sure. Shouldn't be rocket science. My pay keeps going down, down, down -- no food stamp eligibility for me, no heap -- whatever - scums
