Wisconsin Woman and Son Accused of Stealing $3 Million in Food Stamps

A Wisconsin woman and her son are accused of stealing $3 million in food stamps benefits from the federal government, according to court records.

Both Elham M. “Brenda” Abdul Rahim and Ahmad Zaki Abdul Rahim were indicted on a count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, which carries a sentence of as many as 20 years in prison.

Elham Rahim was also indicted on counts of fraud and unauthorized use of food stamps, while Ahmad Rahim was indicted on a count of lying to investigators from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Ahmad Rahim told The Journal Sentinel that he did not commit fraud and did not know that he and his mother were indicted. He said his father, who is now dead, used to run the store they owned and that he did not know how his father ran the establishment.

“The Rahims used the store to exchange Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cards for cash,” the indictment said.

The indictment also charged that they would swipe a SNAP debit card for a certain amount, give half the amount to the recipients, and keep the rest.

How do they get away with it? I have gotten Food Stamps before and they want a stack of documents before they approve you.Documents I know THESE people do not have.
They need to send investigators around to some of these local grocery stores where people loiter around and ask people to "buy" their food stamps.People even brag about it,getting groceries in exchange for cash to the cardholder.They seem to think it is not a crime when in fact it is a serious offense to buy or sell SNAP benefits.They get $100 of groceries for $50 and they can't figure out it is illegal?

Reminds me of the OC Subway owners (Ramadan brothers from Berlin) and their muliti-million cigarette smuggling ecstasy back in 2013. If I recall correctly one of the brothers had over a million in a black trash bag...Fine True American's indeed!

These people need to be located and put in prison. Time to open Guantanamo Bay back up and get busy. Hillary has a cell with her name on it
