The only fraud is this article. I invite anyone to go on ebay and search for an abt card for sale even code names for them for which i tried you will find not one for sale. I am sure ebt card fraud is out there and the people out there doing it should be jailed. It only hurts people like me that need it. I am a college educated female that has worked since the age of 15 and still cand find work. I believe this article and many like them to be the goverment making up stories to abolish the food stamp program. Spend the money to create jobs so i can get back to work and support my family. We need a new leader. One that wants to create change not one that just talks about it.

You needed birth control.

'Worked since the age of 15' but can't find work.....
If you worked since you were 15 you'd still be working.
When did you stop working, when you were 16?

Who is supporting your family now, the government?
