I’ve been writing about Food Stamp Fraud as a hobby here for nearly 6 years, but had never seen the USDA information on how to report it. I know in my county a few years back, watchful citizens reported it to the local Police Chief who took it from there and the fraudster was busted.
If you see any suspicious activity at your local convenience store, say something.
