So Masslive published an article yesterday about a Worcester woman who has a bad habit of defrauding the government through food stamps. The last time we wrote about food stamp fraud we got a lot of crap because apparently this stuff hardly ever happens, and when it does, it’s not a big deal. Well according to Masslive she stole $3.6 million over a period of four years by creating numerous bank accounts and bout benefits from other people for half price.

No big deal.

Vida Ofori Causey fessed up in U.S. District Court on Monday for conspiring to commit SNAP benefits fraud and money laundering. Ms. Causey just happens to own J&W Aseda Plaza, which apparently she wanted us to believe was one of the most successful corner stores in the history of mankind. After all, this location right here can’t be beat:

Only Main South’s finest buy their blunts there.

Basically her scam was pretty simple – she bought other people’s food stamps for half price off of other assholes, and then exchanged them with the U.S Department of Agriculture for real money. Ya see, some people who get food stamps don’t really need them. Or maybe they get them and they decide they’d rather have drugs or a new TV and they’ll figure out food later on. So they go to the village gypsy and she gives them $50 for $100 worth of food stamps. The deadbeat gets high, and the gypsy trades the $100 worth of food stamps in to the federal government for $100 cash, and makes a $50 profit off of it.

But please, tell me more about how the system isn’t being readily abused. She got caught because she went too far. That’s it. But this shit happens every single day all across Massachusetts and no one’s doing anything about it unless you cross the $3 million threshold mark.

This isn’t to say that Turtleboy wants to make people starve, as several nudniks suggested in our last blog. Basically this penguin sums up a lot of the comments we saw:

Yea, we don’t want people starving either Mr. Penguin. But here’s an idea – how bout we help people AND try to prevent fraud?? Fucked up right?? Who knows, it just might work.

We simply wanna make sure that people who need the help are getting it and more importantly, using it as a means to get off of assistance down the road. We also wouldn’t mind some types of rules and regulations so that the government isn’t just cutting checks to some Main South gypsy for absolutely no reason. Because that seems like a pretty simple thing to just stop doing.

The people that were trading in their food stamps for cash obviously don’t need the food stamps. How bout we figure out who needs it and who doesn’t? Nah, let’s just keep tossing money at anyone who fills out an application. That sounds like a way better idea.

    Simple: mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients, and they should have to provide receipts for what they have purchased. Plus, none of this cash back for anything. Using their EBT cards at certain ATMs( mainly strip clubs) is sickening. And their should be a 2 year limit on welfare before they have to look for a j-o-b.

    SNAP should turn into an online only ordering system. Don’t have Internet (suuuure you don’t), then you go to a qualified market and fill in your order form. Here are the acceptable foods. And we will only send the food to the address listed to the subscriber. Like PeaPod services. Eliminate those fucken EBT accepted here signs and streamline everything!!!

      Interesting idea about delivery. Imagine how many nice TVs and Lexus keys will be littering some of those houses. The delivery guy could flag people for further scrutiny. I wouldn’t mind that as a part time job, you know, just to help the poor.

    Blame lies with the Democrats. I know folks on “public assistance” smokers ($10 a pack $3,650 a year), smartphones with data plans, etc, etc. Of course this guy also smokes a ton of weed. And he is like many MANY others. They abuse and steal BECAUSE THEY CAN!

    In the immortal words of A-hole former, failed Governor Deval, this is just “leakage” and “anecdotes”.

    Imagine what this sorry ass state and even sorrier city might be able to do with almost $4 million? When my kids went to The Grove, Doherty, Sullivan and South it was like sending kids into a 3rd world hellhole.

    And I wonder what the vig was, that Mosaic and others skimmed off the top of this obviously widely known graft. Oh wait, “no snitching…”

    Spankster, we await your genius analysis of this “pipeline”.

    Not.

    Mass. voters have elected and reelected thieves and con men (and women) for many years. Deval Patrick got in twice…and he believes totally in unlimited welfare, including his own. It’s the voters money…but, they don’t care… Honesty and integrity are just lines in a campaign speech in the Bay State… So….who really cares about this? The poor woman is just taking advantage of a fraud friendly State. You can hardly blame herr.

      I agree with everything you said except for “this poor lady”. She is a piece of shit. I don’t blame her totally because it really was that easy.

        Sandy…you are right…she is a piece of s…. Many, many of the welfare fraud people are. But..that is only because they are tolerated, and, through lack of enforcement, encouragead in Mass.

    So… let me get this straight. I work for a company and make too much to get any sort of asssitance, even though I am in the negative every week because of bills and required “middle class white priviledge” obligations, but someone who owns their own business gets SNAP!? WTF….

    • JILL
      September 29, 2015 at 5:32 pm

      No-she doesn’t get SNAP. Her business, I assume, accepts the SNAP vouchers and the state cuts her a check for what she submits each month. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. Kind of like a ghetto fucked up version of box tops for education-each top is a $ amount given back to the organization submitting.

    @#justice: Love your post. I ranted about this yesterday in another article. I waited until I was 40 to have a baby, when I was MARRIED and had enough money to support said baby! And stay home and take care of said baby.

    that place is great. I used to buy 40’s in there when I was 18 because all white people look the same to them.

    I read this about this earlier today. It makes my blood boil. How many of these scams are running rampant in our state? The system IS broken; in fact destroyed. The examples of welfare fraud are sickening and endless. Whether EBT, SNAP, SSI, Section 8. I have high hopes for the Baker administration to crack the whip. While on my rant, if people collecting state benefits of any sort are known drug addicts, do their benefits get stripped immediately? Was Bella Bond’s “mother” collecting? Or let me guess, she had a “disability.”

    I’m sick of being in the upper middle class, realizing I’m not ready still to have a child, and suffering because of it since I have common sense…then seeing these fucking ass clowns that can’t spell parenting, having 4+ kids, feeding society their spoiled, retarded loins, and getting freebies because of it. They ask for help after they spread their legs for nothing, fucking pigs.

    His about you have to take a rest to have children, and of you fail, you give them to the state for parents to take care of who are incapable of having children.

    Sick of sacrificing out future because trashy whores don’t know how to say no to ghetto scrubs. Done with it. Whoever wants to chat about this or tell me I’m wrong, please, let’s chat…

      #justice….you must be aware that what that woman did…and, others are still doing, is very close to being legal in Massachusetts. Check our your long list of indicted, and jailed legislators. That pretty much tells the real story. Don’t waste your time hoping for change. And, if you voted for Devall Patrick…..twice…..you don’t deserve change.

      If you were “upper middle class” as you say, you would certainly be able to afford a kid. And you wouldn’t speak like a mongrel.

    $3.6 million/10=$360k per year.
    They could hire several people for 10 years to investigate with the money from just 1 vendor committing fraud.

    I would have to guess that $900,000 worth of inventory doesn’t pass through that one store in one year.

    How many others are there?

    And they claim there is no money to investigate….

    Quick point: that’s a puffin, not a penguin.

    Don’t really need to say anything else since the rest is spot on.
