Why Am I Being Singled Out?
There is no indication you have been singled out, it is simply a case of a discrepancy on your application that has triggered the computer to alert an investigator of a potential issue. More times than not when an investigator looks further, the issue is quickly corrected before it even becomes an issue. If there is something that is obviously wrong, you will be the last person to find out. Once you get the call or letter, the investigation has already been going on and it is definitely best to speak with a food stamp fraud attorney today.
What Will Happen?
If you avoid the letter and simply hide, you will be found guilty by default and the judge will hand down the most severe punishment. If you read the letter, you could be facing a discontinuation of benefits, you might have to repay some of the benefits, or you may have been found to be guilty of falsifying information and subjected to jail time. Call a food stamp fraud attorney sooner than later to avoid serious trouble.
