    DOJ WebsiteA Gardner, Mass. woman pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Worcester to fraudulently receiving over $100,000 in public benefits.

    Heidi Narcisse, 45, pleaded guilty to two counts of theft of public money.  Narcisse was charged in a felony Information in August 2015.  Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 9, 2015.

    Narcisse began collecting Social Security Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits in 1999 and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits in 2011.  To be eligible for these benefits, a person must have very limited income and financial resources, and a person’s spouse’s income can make a person financially ineligible for benefits. 

    In order to receive these benefits, Narcisse repeatedly and falsely stated that she was separated from her husband, lived alone with her children, and had no outside support.  In reality, in July 2006, Narcisse and her husband bought a house together in Gardner, listed that house as their residential address on their respective driver’s licenses, and filed joint tax returns listing the same address.  In addition, Narcisse’s husband, who had income from his job, regularly gave Narcisse money for household expenses. 

    If Narcisse had truthfully reported her living situation and her husband’s financial support, she would not have been eligible to receive the SSI and SNAP benefits.  From 2006 to 2014, Narcisse illegally received $100,512 in SSI benefits, and from 2011 to 2015 she received $17,012 in SNAP benefits.

    So let me get this straight. This woman was still legally married to her husband and living with him. But then she applied for social security and food stamps and she received it without them asking ANY questions? Awesome system we’ve got going here. Who would ever think someone would try to take advantage of these foolproof programs? Background checks? Home visits? Facebook pictures? Property records? That sounds like way too much work. Here, take your check.

    I love when people try to tell Turtleboy that abuse of public assistance is this rare, false flag that we shouldn’t even waste our time talking about. Bullshit. If happens all the time and the only way that you get caught is if you go completely overboard and make a mistake like this woman did. It’s just so easy. Just say you’re a single mom and the state will throw money at you.

    We’ve also received inside information about the plea agreement that no other source has. Guess what her punishment is for stealing 117,ooo freaking DOLLARS from the taxpayers? Probation. Three years of it. She also has to pay restitution of the $117K.

    But guess what? She doesn’t have $117K because more than likely she spent it all. The state will not be getting that money back and she won’t spend a single day in prison. All she has to do is not get arrested for three more years and this whole thing goes away forever. Because it pays to be a scumbag in Massachusetts. Literally.

    This plea agrement was reached on August 12. Guess where Heidi Narcisse was on on August 30, which came 18 days after she was ordered to pay back $117,000 to the state:

    Nice, FOXWOODS!!! Because no one ever spends money at Foxwoods!!! And she’s been buying herself a lot of bling:

    Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 3.28.32 PM

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – America is the only country on earth where the poorest people are the fattest. In other countries when you don’t have a job, you don’t eat. In America when you don’t have a job the government takes you out for lobster dinners at Foxwoods.

    After we take back Worcester we’re gonna get started on taking back the whole state. Massachusetts can be a normal state once again, we just need to get people in officer who actually view shit like this as problematic.

      Last paragraph should be written at the end of every article.

      Wow. One thing, though — her appearance certainly fits “the profile”. That may be why she got away with it for so long. Being obese and having no pride in one’s appearance (except for the bling) is one of the requirements. I’d have fallen for her story if I was a government bureaucrat.

    3. mack4966


      You have to realize that this took place in Massachusetts.. Welfare fraud, unearned state pensions, bribery, kickbacks etc. are borderline legal there. Massachusetts voters occasionally
      complain, but, do nothing except vote the same bums who could stop this crap back into office. Besides that obese people, who generally are too fat to work, really need the taxpayers to keep working for their survival. So……be kind..

      After Ted Kennedy got away with murdrering that young prostitute, massachusetts has to ignore all less barbaric crimes,we had Aaron Hernandez,we listen to Remy the father of a murderer,kraft goes to congress to listen to modern day hitler(Netanyahu), this is why these people get off, this is peanuts compared to the crimes that have been ignored.

      1. Jack Mehoffer


        Prostitute? You should fact check.

      2. mack4966


        Wwy…you appear to be one of those odious people who think they know what they are talking about….but, don’t.

      3. Boo Boo Bobby Gibbs


        Netanyahu isn’t a modern day Hitler. Nice try though.

      So she filed joint tax returns with her husband yet was able to get this assistance? You can get welfare without providing a tax return or the government checking tax returns against those who receive assistance for 15 years!?!?! How much $ would the government save by simply using the SS #’s from welfare recipients and checking them against tax returns? She should also get jail time and they should garnish her husbands wages/ seize his property.

      Your story was good as far as calling out a scumbag scamming the system. But as far as assuming that everyone on SSI and foodstamps are fat lazy asses wearing gold chains and rings, is not only assanine, but ignorance !!!!!!

      I know a woman right now who suffers from post traumatic syndrome, among other medical and mental issues that are legitimate. She has been on SSI since 1998 and lives in a homeless shelter since 2013 because her check does not cover high rents! She by the way, pays over $200 for that room at the shelter. She only qualified for $20 in foodstamps. She actually told me, that thank god she does not eat anything, ( anorexia disorder) so not having money for food won’t hurt so much being hungry.

      NOT EVERYONE IS A SCUMBAG!

      If someday you become terminally sick, or an accident leaves you unable to work…….. You better hope you can rashin food that a church or food pantry is willing to give you!

      How long can you go without eating? My friend can for months…….. Cause she has to. smh

      1. wut


        Mind turning down the estrogen emotions a bit and quoting the part of the article where it says everybody on the system is abusing it? The multiple “!”s and caps lock kinda makes me want to trade in my woman card. You sort of sound like the women I deal with all day trying to fix their computer in a calm manner while they yell at me irrationally and blame me and everybody else for the problem, which is meaningless chatter. So, let’s strip this baby down to some facts and figure out where your paragraph of vagine vom came from? I think there’s some rule that says since I’m a chick, I can trash chicks. Same idea as fatties making fun of fatties. So, restrain yourself on pulling the anti-feminism card. You went off the deep end up there.

        1. Dude


          I think she was referencing this:

          “I love when people try to tell Turtleboy that abuse of public assistance is this rare, false flag that we shouldn’t even waste our time talking about. Bullshit. If happens all the time and the only way that you get caught is if you go completely overboard and make a mistake like this woman did. ”

          However, she is incorrect. He just said it happens all the time (as in it happens a lot), not that all participants are cheating the system.

      2. mack4966


        of course there are exceptions, that is just common sense. This lady, however is not one of those who go without eating. She wears nine or ten rings apparently to keep eyes from noticing those lovely rolls of fat that a lot of her welfare fraud paid for.

      3. mack4966


        Lisa…if you let your friend go “for months” without eating..you can hardly be called a friend.

        1. T


          The reason she gets 20 in food stamp living in a shelter is because they feed you 3x a day very good meals and pastries yes rents are high but they have programs especially for people living in shelters

    7. wut


      Strangely, her daughter seems pretty successful at a young age. This confuses me. Maybe she was skipping the lobster and feeding the girl several balanced meals. Nahhh, free school lunch.

        oh trust me they used every assistance there was…

      somethings gotta give , us working fools are gettin old and tired fast !

      The article is dead on – this abuse of the taxpayer happens with regularity. I was at Stop & Shop recently and a person paid for their groceries with an EBT card and then went right over to the customer service counter and bought $100 worth of scratch tickets. I lived across from a 3 decker that was populated with 3 floors worth of able bodied people, none of whom worked. And, they crowed about it; there was no sense of shame being on the tax-payers’ dime. They viewed those of us who went off to work as the fools who are earning the money that their lazy behinds will end up with. The women in the house would bring their children out to the van that picked them up each morning wearing pajamas and robes. When the kids were returned, the very same women would come out and greet the kids in, you guessed it, their pajamas and robes. I guess the mothers needed a break from their kids so they could better themselves going to school or looking for a job. Sadly, through no fault of their own, you know the kids are fated to be just like their parents.

    10. Wheelwright


      Just tonight I was at the Big Y in Ware. A young lady in front of me had groceries totaling about $19.50 and she tried to pay with her EBT card. She only had $9.26 left on it. While she was pawing through her large pocketbook for money I considered paying the rest as I’m doing OK. However I noticed a few things. There were two packs of cigarettes in her pocketbook. That’s $20 right there! She had several beautiful tattoos on her arms, legs and shoulders. Hmmm… I wonder what they cost? Full color! She had beautiful nails, I don’t think they were glued on. Nice clothes too. Seems she spends plenty of money on herself!

      She had zero cash, not a penny and she asked if she could take the groceries and bring the money back later. They told her no. She left without anything.

      The bleeding hearts here will feel sorry for her. I feel sorry that she is gaming the system. She and many others have plenty of money for themselves but when it comes to saving extra cash so they can buy food for their family they don’t have any. She should be ashamed for being so selfish.

      1. judyb


        ” asked if she could take the groceries and bring the money back later.” – LOL!

      2. Janelle


        Ok so you saw this woman with a Ebt card but no money to give. You don’t even know this woman to judge her. The things you claim she had could have been gifts. My friends have bought me tattoos before and took me out to get my nails done when I had no money. And all I focus on is making sure my kids have all that they need. Most of the time I learned to do my hair and nails my self. Because the cost is unreasonable. Just because you need help a little from the system doesn’t mean you have to look gross. And live a shitty life. …

        1. xayxel


          No time to be doing your nails when you’re in dire straights… that’s like going to the hair salon so you can look good during a missile crisis; complaining about too much cream cheese during a zombie epidemic, or (kidding aside), just plain being oblivious to how reality works when you got things you got to prioritize first…

        2. TDF


          Great friends she must have….”Let me give you a gift, here’s a couple of packs of smokes….because I really care about you”

        3. mack4966


          Janelle…how many tattoos do you have. Did you know that the more tattoos a person has…the lower that persons IQ. That is a researched fact. Hopefully you don’t fall into that category. Yet.

    11. Hanginpossum


      This is why I pay more on federal taxes alone than I do on child support. Don’t get me wrong, having a late thirtys stay at home ex-wife (that’s older than me) with a masters degree that I paid for pisses me off but at least I’m paying for my own children plus my ex wife’s accomodations. It pisses me off to no end that shitbags steal from my children.

    12. Michelle


      Saying you’re a single mom doesn’t mean the state will throw money at you. Actually being a single mom doesn’t mean that either. Working single moms don’t get public assistance, because they work. This lady abused the system and there are thousands more like her, living with boyfriends or husbands but pretending to do it all alone.

      1. mack4966


        Michelle…..right you are. But, remember, what she is doing seems to be perfectly legal in Massachusetts…That is one reason why freeloaders flock to the state.

      2. Alright


        Correct. But, this lady isn’t as obvious as those living in the projects who are BLATANTLY driving luxury cars and parking them right outside in Section 8 housing. The city’s taxpayers money paid for those camera systems in these projects, wonder what the Worcester Housing Authority’s excuse is for not monitoring the abuse that goes on.

        1. Erica


          This lady drives s cadilac escalade. Sells crack & pills. I live in her area. She is known as scum.

    13. W w y


      Oops forgot. Boston strong,lol.

    14. No name


      Wow … I know this family and I am absolutely shocked. I had a feeling something weird was up because they went to the Casino A lot and I mean A LOT , plus all the big bling and jewelry and how the house was and they had Cadillac SUV’S . I thought she worked somewhere as a paralegal because she took criminal justice in college with me so I thought that’s where all the money came from plus her husband worked but I never knew in what. she sure used her legal skills to get out of this …. that’s pretty sad.

      1. Erica


        Heidi ho also Sells crack and pills also. Scum bag.

    15. H e y


      This women is trash! Some people need the ssi/food stamps due to health/mental problems but this women is just lazy and worthless.

    16. No name


      This is so disgusting, I knew this family and was friends with their oldest daughter for a while and they always had their nice Cadillac Escalades and their brand name clothes and jewelry, nice fancy house. The mother was even in college for Paralegal services and took some legal studies with me which is shocking. They made tons and I MEAN TONS of trips to Foxwoods Resort Casino​ , I even went with them one time and They offered to pay… The way the lived was ridiculous and come to find out it was all due to fraud ??? AND SHE ISN’T DOING TIME ??? disgusting !!! Not to mention i think the husband ran a underground gambling because the daughter mentioned it to me a long time ago

    17. Hanginpossum


      And on the flip side you get my Brazilian carpenter that I can no longer afford. He came here with nothing, is young, now owns lots of deckers. He used to do after hours work for me doing drywall and mud and paint etc and he was always talking into his bluetooth headset while working lining up the next thing and before you know it he had no time for my cheapness! Those guys should be imported.

      1. Dee


        It sounds like he worked hard for his money and you should not be putting him down because he is not abusing the system he is working his ass off for his money. He is not a lazy ass abusing the system or selling drugs to buy his 3 deckers.

    18. Froggy


      This is disgusting. Since she is on the deed to her house, the state should take the house and get back the taxpayers money. I swear you have to lie to get help. Working parents that honestly need help for childcare, food, etc. can’t get it but if you go in a lie your butt off the state helps you so you can sit home. Again, this does not go for everyone. I understand that some people do need the help. However, the majority of the people that get the most money lied to get it.

    19. Publius


      Public assistance abuse is far from rare. Only delusional West Side liberals and hippies would gurgle that lie.

    20. MS


      They have no checks and balances for any of this stuff. I would bet that is someone didn’t turn her in she would still be collecting her multiple handouts. Everyone knows someone who is abusing the system.
      Turn them in, if you dont you are part of the problem.

    21. Mike N


      The state of Ma is the problem here. I have a relative that has non stop DSS cases against her.( I think 3 as we speak.)Recently multiple relatives called DDS and the SSI office and spoke to people and yet still nothing gets done. She gets almost 3,800.00 a month from the state because she found some rogue dr. to sign off that she was to stressed to even work and that all her kids have asthma. Yet she was receiving benefits from the state for over 10 years (not working) before she was found to be to stressed to ever work. So all this loser’s money is gone in about a week and the kids have to eat at friends houses. Love to know where all this money goes! Oh , yeah sorry , probably didn’t need to add this as I assume everyone reading this already knew but yes she also claims to be a single mom.Daddy lives there and he’s not supposed to because he was a convicted crack dealer, but DSS does nothing but give her 2 days notice that they are visiting. So the state has no been made aware of the male living there, the money being blown with no food to show for it, utilities being shut off, kids going to school lunchless, etc.. the list is long. Nothing gets done!!! Not all people abuse this system but is a very high percentage.

    22. Big Perm


      Lets put a stop to this shit, put all the scum bags to work cleaning the streets with a toothbrush. They can collect a check from the state on Fri. No work no pay!!

    24. David


      Why is it that unemployment runs out but food stamps, and housing assistance last forever???

    25. James


      $117,000 spread out over 9 years comes to around $13,000/year. She has to pay it all back, and has to be on probation 3 years. Jail would have done no good. She is now publicly shamed in the news. That’s enough.

    26. NightWisp


      As it is said on Godlikeproductions…. Guess the race?
