This is done all over Cambridge and Boston. All they have to do is check all the privatley owned "corner stores". The authorities just have to check all of those 50.00 receipts in any of these stores. The othere thing people due is give the EBT cards to their crack dealer, he goes to the grocery store and when he/she purchases what they want at the grocery store the give their customers half the amount in crack.

Jesus. A food stamp fraud? I would expect to see a drug bust, but who would participate in a food stamp fraud?
Personally, I would be too embarrassed to use Food Stamps.
