Food stamp fraud: Nyack, NY this time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 17, 2013

See a pattern!

Here are the names of those charged in yet another immigrant food stamp fraud scheme (from Nyack-Piermont Patch):

Nissar Ahmed, 59,

Shafaqat Ali, 46,

Kusum Joshi, 48,

Ansar Haniffa, 72,

Balbir Singh, 62,

Kavender Joshi, 49,

Muneer Khan, 28,

For new readers, this is my side interest—food stamp fraud.   If you don’t know how trafficking works, this Patch article has a simple definition:

According to the charges, for example, a customer would enter the store and ask the merchant for $60 in cash. The defendants would ring up a fictitious sale of $120 in qualifying groceries, and then pay out $60 in cash to the customer. The store’s account would subsequently be credited with $120 from the customer’s EBT SNAP account, providing the store a $60 profit on the illicit transaction.  [and that $60 profit comes from you!—ed]

My theory is that there is a world-wide understanding (heck, there might even be training seminars on how to do it) that the trick is to get into the US on an investor visa, buy a mom & pop store and go into the food stamp scam business and rip off the dumb infidel American taxpayer!

I bet that by now I have a hundred cases just like this one posted here at RRW.  Type ‘food stamp fraud’ into our search function and see what I mean!

  2. I may repeat myself, but last year, I was at the local grocery store and came up to the self checkout line. There was a black guy there and he solicited me. He said he would pay for my groceries on his food stamp card, and I would give him half of the total in cash. Uhhh, no. I left and said I had forgotten something. When I came back to the checkout, there he was with a black lady who was more than willing to participate in his scam. There were clerks and managers milling about, but noone said anything or did anything. Your tax money at work!
