well I guess theirs no argument with the facts. this is definitely uncalled for by people who have been given the benefit of the doubt. It is a disturbing piece of news that's for sure. However in the future I will still give those who are accused the benefit of the doubt because until an investigation is complete its still a rumor.

I have to agree with all else on this. Its complete and utterly disgusting. If you don't need the help stay away so that those that do need and deserve it can get it. And besides how could you not figure that they would eventually catch up with you guys. Come on back to the reality check of life people.

I agree If people need the help then ok but if you cheat the system then you deserve to get caught. So let the people who are down and out get the help , every one eles you will get caught sooner or later it dosen,t pay to cheat and you know who you are !!!!!

I notice you folks seem to talk to those who have cheated the system as though they are on topix. Im not sure one of those in mention have been on here. However let us not forget the word "allegedly" yes its an extremely long shot but it is a possibility. We could only wish there was some chance that these people are innocent but most likely their not.

Nows time to check the handicap and weed out the cheaters. And see who is cheating our social security system. The system claims they will run out of money in 2040, so where does that leave our grandchildren? Any negative replies to this, and you are concidered guilty as charged. Sure many people are handicapped, but some just fake it to go for the free ride.

How come it never says "why" they got it for welfare fraud? like did they not tell them they are working? or umm..what did they do i wonder to get in trouble..i mean they are innocent until proven guilty.I wouldnt want to be in the news as welfare fraud thank god they wont give me help.i would be turning in my s*** color for that day by what i hear they want to know all.anyways if they were cheating the system they deserve it i guess.sucks ppl that need help can never get it. I tried to get food stamps once and they were gonna give me 20$ a month and i was pregnant with my first child.Sad thing is all the ppl involved will get welfare in the future.

If you are on Supplimental Security Income, then what is that? I would consider that on the "system", I would consider that you have a disability of some sort and that you can't work for some reason - physical, mental, etc., so yes, you are on the "system". Be careful of who you are judging, because some day it may come back to bite you. I don't agree at all with people cheating the welfare system at all - there have been generations of families on the system for years because they are too lazy to work, and then there are people like the ones who have gotten caught stealing thousands of dollars from the welfare system, it needs to stop. If you truly need the help then fine, but if people are too lazy to work, then no, go get a job and support yourself and you family and quit depending on the system to do for you what you should do for yourself.

Sorry if I defending anyone, but that is the way that I was taught by my parents, and yes I work full time and have for the past 24 years and will continue until I retire and I don't know when that will be.
