How Do You Report Food Stamp Fraud In Alabama?
In Alabama, food stamp fraud is punishable under both state and federal perjury laws, which may include up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000, or both. If you know of someone who is committing fraud, it is important to report the issue to the state’s Department of Human Resources Fraud and Overpayments Office so that an investigation can be made. The fraud should also be reported at the local level, so that the suspect’s Food Stamp Office is made aware of the issue. Determine if the suspect’s actions can be considered food stamp fraud. Fraudulent acts include identity misrepresentation, giving false information on an application, using someone else’s food stamps, giving your EBT food stamp card to other persons not in your household, or using food stamps to buy illegal items, such as drugs or firearms. Contact your local Food Stamp Office to report the fraud at the local level. All Food Stamp program offices and contact information is listed by county on the Alabama stat
