I know a family that is recieving Public Assistance and section8 housing. The members of the house hold are two little boys and their mom and dad. Although the dad is not supposed to be living there.
The mom, as I had said is on TANF from the welfare system, recieves food stamps and medical for herself and her two children. The dad was working and when he was working he was paying Child Support to the State for only one child. He has lost his job and now pays nothing-not even anything for the house hold. When this last baby was born, he wouldn't put himself on the Birth certificate, because he didnt want to pay child support on him. But he knows he is the father and lives in the house.
These people like to live frivelous lives and always have brand new, name brand shoes clothes, ect. Their sons wear Nikes and other name brands as well. All via the state.
I have no problem with people getting assistance, when they need it. There was a time that I had recieved it. But all of the hoops I had to jump through! it seems as if no one else has to abide by the same rules. I was not allowed to have anyone else get mail at my house, yet this man that I speak of gets his unemployment check and other mail sent directly to the appartment. there has been no investigators involved. Yet when I was recieving assistence, I had multiple investigators come at diffrent times, asking my neighbors abotu my household. And i wasnt doing anything wrong!
In my heart of hearts I want to report this to the authorities(her case worker at DSHS, and at Section8 office) But I dont want them to know that I had said anything.
I also don't want to recieve any bad karma for reporting this if I do, either.
But there are so many more people that need help. And when others are abusing the system, it gives a bad name to everyone. I had a bad name and was stalked by the government because of these people who fraud.
I would accept any advice any one maty have. Have any of you been in one of these situations?
