It’s been at least a week since we’ve gotten an email about someone selling food stamps on their Facebook page. We were due for one of these, and this time it’s out of the beautiful city of Lowell:
Ahhh yes, Myranda Chamberland. The government gives her TOO much, and she just doesn’t know what to do with her inventory. Sure, she could just tell Uncle Sam, “thanks but I’m all set.” But that would require integrity and honesty. It’s way more fun to sell your stamps on the Facebook machine.
It took Jay Smith a few minutes to figure out the scam:
You can find her in Lowell. Shocking, I know.
The best part about it is she’s not even attempting to hide it, or disguise the language. She goes out of her way to make it plainly obvious – you give me $50 in cash, and I will give you $100 worth of food stamps in exchange. You can’t script this level of stupidity.
Obviously this woman made the smart choice to bear children without getting married or having a father figure around. So it’s our job to finance this sort of wicked smart decision making. But she doesn’t really need it, or else she wouldn’t be selling them off for cash. After all, the tattoo guy in Billerica doesn’t accept EBT. And God knows when you’re a food stamp queen you simply cannot ever have enough tattoos.
But please, me more about how rare abuse is with EBT. Because I hardly ever see it. Ever. Things are going just fine and everyone who is using it is doing so for its intended purposes. Those who wish to reform the system are simply hate-mongering bigots who don’t like poor people and don’t want the government to be the nanny state that we all dreamed it would be.
If you have a few minutes and want to report this lovely creature of Lowell, here’s the phone number for the DTA’s fraud department:
And if you wanna write them a letter, here’s the form to fill out.
P.S. I know shit like this is rampant in Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, Methuen, and New Hampshire. We could really use a Merrimack Valley Turtleboy. Let us know if you’re interested.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
