I am a Public Assistance (Food Stamps, Medicaid, Welfare) Fraud Investigator. Ask Me Anything!
Since my previous AMA was so much fun (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1c7h00/i_am_a_public_assistance_food/) I figured I would do another.
With a record number of people on food stamps and other government assistance in America, fraud is inevitable. That is where I come in. My job is to investigate discrepancies and uncover fraud where possible.
One thing since so many made comments on the last AMA, I don't know of any success stories off hand. Nothing against those who might be on assistance or have received it, but finding success isn't in my job description.
