3 women who operated convenience stores in Los Angeles County, California are charged with a $6 million food stamp scam, NBC reports.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney announced the arrests on Friday. Maria Teresa Ramirez, 37, who owned several stores in Palmdale and Littlerock, is charged with eight counts of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) fraud.

Her 54-year-old mother, Maria Salgado, is also facing seven counts of SNAP fraud involving a convenience store she owned in Palmdale. Also arrested was Yessica Garay, 37, who worked for Ramirez at her Palmdale store before taking over the business.

The three women are accused of illegally changing SNAP food stamp benefits for cash. The women allegedly charged eligible food purchases to the benefit cards and collected fees for the transactions.

Fourteen other people have been charged for allegedly using their SNAP cards to get cash at the stores.

The women face nine years in state prison, while the other 14 defendants could face a maximum of three years in county jail, according to the District Attorney's Office.

    Are they Asians? Convenience store and all

  • sunni_daze

    I'm just glad they not black.

  • Marlika

    Why isn’t this a Federal crime?? FS come from the Govt not the State...

  • 2gr8ful

    Entrepreneurial minds with the wrong business plan smh.

  • Soon2BWife

    Really, do you pay taxes?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Latinas.

  • Soda

    I'm not surprised that they were able to get away with that amount before being caught. California practically begs you to apply for food stamps. I called a county number and while on hold I heard a repeated message encouraging f.s. application with such enthusiasm.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    A $6 mill scam and all they are getting is 9 yrs? Well damn.

  • WinterIsComing

    They charged *ineligible purchases as eligible purchases. So folks were buying black n milds and 40 ounces, While the hispanics charged them a fee for the purchases.

  • CookieMobster
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If the program is administered by the state, I'm guessing it would be primarily considered a state crime... even though the program is probably funded mostly by Federal grants.

  • Blue

    Hahahaha. That's what I said.

  • Soda

    Taxes are also used to fund wars in other countries that leave people starving. Which is worse?

  • The Art

    This happens all the time in NYC. Let's not even get into some of the Latino's and Section 8!! They collect benefits and live rent free while working off the books. Then they send barrels, filled with products that they bought with our tax dollars, back to their countries to be sold in their family stores.

  • peribabes

    thank you for breaking it down bc I reread it 3 times! I was still confused LOL

  • WinterIsComing

    Lolol right! I had to go to a few other articles to piece it together bc the write up didn’t make sense

  • Renee26

    Umm ummm ummm

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Food stamp fraud is probably one of the oldest scams in the book. Before SNAP and EBT cards came out, I remember when supermarkets in the hood would just buy the food stamps booklets from people, straight cash.... and pay like 40-50 cents on the dollar. Grocery store owners would make a killing off that, and very few of them ever got caught.

  • Renee26

    The minority owned stores in our hoods charge tax on food bought with food stamps... Fraud. The big groceries don't tax when foodstamps are used... How you gonna tax the government??? SMH but they get all the tax breaks to open up businesses in our low income areas

  • CCW47

    When I saw this I already knew it was illegal Hispanics they are thriving here in Los Angeles off of Americans tax dollars.

  • Scromes1212

    This is common where I live. This and using stamps for hot food a selling books of stamps.

  • Soda

    Books? What year are you in?

  • Fire & Ice

    That's how these little corner store are surviving.

  • Yardgirl

    PeriodT!!

  • KLove

    i really dont care about folks in other countries starving....only me and mine...sorry...not sorry

  • Scromes1212

    A book or stamps is 65 dollars worth of stamps. They sell them buy the book. 45 dollars for a book.

  • KLove

    say it louder for the folks in the back....got black folk out here caping for them....FOH

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Some stores in the hood allow people to buy cigarettes with food stamps

  • Soda

    Postage stamps? ?

  • KLove

    SMH.....thats why taxes are so high in CA....i dont see how anyone can live there

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They're both bad. Why do we have to chose to only be outraged about one that's "worse"? Funding unnecessary wars is bad, and defrauding taxpayer dollars is bad too.

  • MJF

    lol seriously.....................

  • Scromes1212

    Food stamps lol where are you from? They sell food stamps by the books. A book of food stamps is 65dollars worth of food stamps. One book cost you 45 dollars. Two books cost anywhere from 80 to 90 dollars.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i doubt it's just these three thieving bishes who are doing this. how did it go on for so long though? were their businesses shutdown? were their properties and bank accounts seized? do they have to make restitution? wtf?

  • SpiceGirl

    News to me....

  • Victorious82

    They don’t come in “books” anymore. EBT cards is what all the states use now.

  • Soda

    You must be in Mayberry or some similar dusty town because nowhere else has paper food stamps.

  • EMILY POST

    Damn who could flip some food stamps into 6 million dollar scam wow ?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    where are YOU from? yall collect 'green stamps' too? LOL!!!!!!

  • SpiceGirl

    Look at my tax dollars at work! s

  • Nathan Hastings

    Mexicans

  • Scromes1212

    They are on a card! They just use the term books! Lol I live in the poorest zip code in America and one of the highest populations of blacks in America. THIS IS HOW THEY SELL STAMPS lol they will come up to you in Kroger and ask you do you want to buy a book of stamps. It's regular here

  • CCW47

    Please explain that to me I do not understand this for the life of me.

  • Nina Ross

    So these were mexicans?

  • Renee26

    Hispanics...maybe another country but Hispanics nonetheless

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    They got off really easy, wtf.

  • Soda

    I wasn't agreeing with the fraud, just that taxes should be used to feed the needy.

  • Renee26

    Get outta my head! Lol

  • Scromes1212

    That would go out of business if they didn't collect food stamps and sell cigarettes and beer.

  • MoneyMillz

    Yup, and alcohol

  • Renee26

    They stopped printing them years ago...they probably counterfeit stamps ?

  • MoneyMillz

    Lol, they been stop using paper stamps.

  • Soda

    Wow! How it's done here (I think) is they pay your total at the checkout using the EBT card, then you give them half in cash.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile.... Google this headline since we can’t post links..

    Warrant is issued for 17-year-old after cops were inundated with calls after video of him 'beating his girlfriend for pulling a breakup prank on him' went viral

  • Renee26

    Where they get the extra cards from Scromes?? ?

  • KLove

    Because the Democrats have most Black folk marching lockstep with everything they say....they already got the Black vote on lock...so now they need a new voting block, which would be illegal aliens, if they can get them in here.......funny thing is....a lot of Hispanics I know that are here legally, vote Republican and HATE illegals....but the media wont tell you that though....it goes against the narrative

  • Shamwow

    Smh he hit her hard too. Poor girl started crying such a sad video.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Thank God!

    Did you see the live she did after the fact? Someone commented something like, "I'd never put my hands on my girl. I might curse her out but never that ." Her lost behind said, "Well, we have REAL love over here."

    Our babies, man...

  • RICHIE_RICH

    You mean on the card?

  • TransMichelle

    But..But..But women are supposed to be so noble and the solution to "toxic masculinity." What on earth could they do wrong?

  • Scromes1212

    Extra cards? Why would they need extra cards? Ill break it further down smh if I get 200 a month in stamps i have 3 books to sell. If Renee says she wants two books she gives me 90 dollars and she takes my card and spends 130 and brings my card back if I'm not in the store with her(you don't need id to use the card). Now I have one book left to sell it use myself. Is that clearer lol

  • Renee26

    Sadly a lot of teens experience domestic violence ... Jesus help her

  • Alextra Ballard

    The Government ain’t neva finna stop food stamp fraud sadly to say...unless they stop issues out food stamps period.

  • Soda

    Maybe one of those three Mexican countries Fox News mentioned.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i don't want to see the beating, but can you tell me what her parents' response was to this situation? (thanks)

  • Scromes1212

    I said they are on a card like four times now smh y'all really don't know how stamps are sold? Where are you from?

  • Renee26

    ? ok ok I thought you were saying the store clerks were selling the books to the public... I know people do it with people they know

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    sad part, that's most likely not the first time he beat her, smh

  • Renee26

    I didn't read any other stories on it... Ion even care where they came from, the last names told me enough ?

  • Scromes1212

    Where I live they just walk up to you in the store and ask you do you want to buy a book of food stamps or they will ask how much you spending and try and negotiate a price. I thought it was like this everywhere lol *shrugs*

  • Renee26

    She must not have any family members that care about her

  • Soda

    So then you have to trust Renee, right? Cause if it was me...who you gonna report me to if I use it all? ?

  • Scromes1212

    Please read below smh I can't keep going over this lol

  • iWasteTime

    Folk at my job hate me.
    I say there are three Mexican countries.
    Texas, California and New Mexico ...

  • Coy little wink

    I think it varies. We don't call them books in Ohio. I've heard 200 for 120 and 60 for 40....

  • CCW47

    Yes Yes Yes, and the thing is the truth is in plan sight, while the black community is being gentrified by illegals Hispanics not by whites. Here in Los Angeles what was nice middle class black areas are no more.

  • Renee26

    Yeah with a stranger you better be right there at the register with them to make sure

  • Scromes1212

    Maybe because it's so prevalent where I live they have a system set up but I thought everybody sold them like that *shrugs*

  • Renee26

    Hot tears... He tired

  • Coy little wink

    It depends on the seller but yep everyone sells them pretty much

  • Fire & Ice

    You ain't telling no lies. That's how these stores are able to stay in business. The expiration date on some of those corner store items are at least a year past the date. Cigarettes, beer and "tree wraps" sell like hot cakes though.

  • Sha

    In this state (RI) they are, they put in a new sophisticated system. The last 4 months over 300 people were charged with fraud and more to come. Times are changing.

  • peribabes

    OKAY all kinds of confused lol!

  • Soda

    And he kept calling her "bruh."

  • Scromes1212

    Not necessarily. If the person uses to much you just take a lose and don't mess with them anymore. If they steal your card you just call and get a new one or change the pin. It's the hood so if you pay for 65 and you use 100 you should be prepared for a fight lol

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Damn I still trying to buy some food stamps, smdh

    Can an illegal open multiple stores, with no documentation.

  • Scromes1212

    South Memphis

  • CCW47

    Yes, here in California

  • Scromes1212

    Has to have documentation but the way they are able to do it they can get a loan in there country easily for a store that is based in America whereas it's hard for people in those communities to get loans for small convenience stores

  • Yoni7

    LOL

  • Rainbowbelow

    They have a video on worldstar, showing her dad beating his azz.

  • Yoni7

    THAT'S how they got caught, selling folks like HIM "books" of (counterfeit) stamps. LMAOOOO

  • Yoni7

    LMAOOO He tambout "yall don't know how stamps are sold". I don't. I wish I did, then maybe I could get some.

  • Coy little wink

  • Vonn

    I know y'all are not on Auntie' s good, clean, wholesome blog selling stamps!!!

  • Sha

    You are correct.

  • wigmon68

    Its actually something that can be solved quite easily. Do not give out cards that can be used to purchase goods. Instead, provide a section of a store where necessities can be picked up and you can only take your allotment.

    Now, you couldn't prevent that individual from trying to sell their loaf of bread or gallon of milk on the street, but probably not a big market for perishable goods.

  • Sha

    Not just Los Angeles, they are everywhere.

  • Sha

    shhhhhh

  • CCW47

    Yes they are everywhere but majority here. I travel and they are the majority here in California to the point that Spanish is becoming the first language now.

  • jwoo250

    Sad to think that she is defending him. You know I see a lot of these YouTube young couples and it's sad the way these ladies allow themselves to be treated on camera. And this prank stuff has gotten out of hand as well.

    Their are hardly any young gentleman left. I swear this generastion is doomed. I try to raise mine right amongst a sea of other bad fish. All we can do is pray.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    No response from her parents as yet.. Looks like the beating took place in her room. The chick posted something like “ we punch each other ALL the time!”

    Chile....

  • Yoni7

    OHIO!

  • tintin

    can guarantee you even with the scamming they still lived above a bodega in a 2 bedroom apt with 14 people. They're very simple people

  • monique

    But Aunt Becky is smiling, signing autographs and skipping into court. Who cares about dam foodstamp fraud. Banks, government misusing and stealing money. Hell, Trumps campaign manager laundered millions and is free.

  • monique

    He should be arrested, because she won't. She was online excusing his fists hitting her face, so the state will have to press charges.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This was when I lived in NYC. It could go as high as 7, but it could go a lot lower in some areas... usually 5 on the 10 when it was drug addict trying to score some quick cash.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I can see that. A lot of these people don't trust banks. Some of these Hispanic bodega/grocery-store owners might live in a 2 bedroom apartment and have multiple stacks of $10,000 and $20,000 in cash hidden in the walls and in the freezer.

  • Renee26

    Good...but I wish they didn't record it ?

  • EMILY POST

    You know they not black cause they would of stopped and investigated a black women after she came up by $500 the state of California would of been trying to ruin her life over welfare fraud for the lowest most insignificant amount..... the state of California has their foot on the necks of the blacks there... they let the non blacks get alway with going up to 6 million of welfare fraud.. smh

  • tintin

    i think cause most of them be illegal so they wanna prepare if they have to run and there ain't no time to go in the bank when you on the run

  • Blue

    Hahaha.

  • tintin

    i saw this video on instagram, it was disgusting but what makes it worse is it seems like she's use to the abuse.

    but that's what these dummies get for posting everything on social media. she didn't need to post it. Now he probably gonna really deal with her ass. Look at all this mess.

  • chan chan

    Not losing my freedom doing crime. I love my home I can’t be confined to a closet prison suite with a thin foam for a mattress eating off a school lunch plate every meal with pig slop on it.

  • Parent

    This is nothing new.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    They both thought it was cute. That's what bothers me the most. Abuse happens, but when it becomes normalized, especially for teenagers, we have a serious problem.

  • Dollface

    I'm lost about what exactly they were doing. I don't get it.

  • A J

    That has nothing to do with this article.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I wonder why it took them 20 years to catch this in California? They been stopped the hookup down here. Crackheads got the big head and were selling their stamps 75 cents on the dollar after the stores were giving them that. The f’ing nerve of them?

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    Small mom and pop stores have been doing this for years they buy the stamps for cheap and use the stamps to stock thier stores instead of using vendors

  • pure_rachet

    ?

  • Wreckognize Game

    They would give the crackhead cash like 60/100 then buy items from their own store with the card. The store would get paid the money from the government for the stamps used at their store.

  • Vegas1989

    Out here in the West, when you go to the hood stores, WinCo or Food4Less peeps will approach you to buy your basket for cash. They would scan your basket and say, "I will pay for your basket for $40 for cash." and some peeps would let them. Sometimes the person would have more than $40 bucks and it was ok for the one who was using their food stamp card. Some dude with 5 kids came up to me here in Vegas I ran him out the store and he left his kids behind. One was about two years old with a diaper and no shirt on in the store and security didn't know what was going on....LOL

  • Cliffsucks

    Yup...

  • sunni_daze

    Damn.

  • Dollface

    I still don’t get it, because if they’re giving them money. And they’re spending it in the store. I’m lost!

  • Dollface

    ohh that makes more sense now.

  • Cliffsucks

    My neighbors live in a two-story section 8 house, in a beautiful area. In Houston, if you stay in the hood on section 8 that's a choice. They Hispanic. Just found out they own a restaurant! No joke

    Shidd! we still call em books here in memphis!lol!

  • Phillybruh

    Its fraud

  • SpeshalGift

    6 million??? jeez

  • YellowSauce

    I live in NY and I had 2 people approach me last week LOL
    I politely declined and told them I had my own card HA!'stops them in their tracks because now they have nothing to bargain

  • hi-liter

    Chile, this been going on in the hood for ages, when they had the $65 book of paper stamps. I remember in my hood, you used to get $45 for $65 book of stamps. Shiiit used to come in handy, esp because the welfare check would be minimal but according to how many kids, them food stamps would be colossal. People would run out of money but still have food stamps, and need to pay a bill or some....that’s how this old profession came about.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Crackheads got the cash to buy crack. The store owners got the card and rang up stuff at their own store to look like they sold more merchandise. Then the owners were reimbursed by the government for the stamps used at their store.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i can only shake my head at the fact that she's already accepted domestic violence as the 'norm' ....God help her.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    So I wonder who got pissed off that they didn't like the amount of money they were offered and snitched. because everybody does a from of this. Most will let you get anything in the store cooked or otherwise, and will swipe that food card like you bought a basket of fresh veggies.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    OMG I know someone who did something like that but not as bad. I didn't know what she was doing until I became old enough to reflect back as a child. To me and my brother it was like Halloween because she would give us food stamps and tell us to go buy some candy and then we would give her the change. it was the best ever to us, but damn my mom was kinda running game. I mean at that time (I'm 45 now) they probably didn't have stipulations on what you can use the food stamps for. idk, but As you said I'm sure she used it to pay a bill because she didn't have any messed up habits if you know what I mean.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    OMG!!! That's sooooo sad. Poor Kids. You can't pick ur parents. smdh

  • the guest

    I didn't get it either. How are they profiting buying someone's food benefits?

  • the guest

    Thanks. I really didn't get it.

  • Cliffsucks

    Here we go..monique your stupid

  • JesusSidePeace

    Nothing new. Smh. Sometimes I still see people on social media looking to trade in their food stamps for money. Not even worth it. .

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Right! They know that shitt 50/50 lmao YOUR President said he giving all them bishes food baskets ain't gonna be no more foodstamps. That n*gga gonna cause a riot! I'm sure he will pocket the savings. smdh

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Let me give you some ghetto knowledge straight out the hood. lol Because its like money. Its like you going to the store and swiping your credit card for a $100 purchase. That store will get $100, same with food stamps, If someone sells the store $500 worth of food stamps and they in turn give you $250 in cash the store just made a profit of $250.

  • XoXo

    TMI!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    LOL I said a FORM of it. not what they did, I don't even know if it was a crime. lmao

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Shiiid there are establishments that are allowing EBT holders to purchase non food itmes with their cards. Even Carry Outs are doing it. And then a lot of Foreigners are receiving benefits and using them to stock their restaraunt! Multiple recipients in the household living on top of the business= mo Stamps mo stamps mo stamps!

  • Wreckognize Game

    ?

  • more

    I'm not mad at them. A lot of people do it but because they have no other choice.

  • XoXo

    I’m just sayin...first you stated you know someone that did it, then you implicated your mom. Hence, why I wrote TMI. (All in fun, joke, joke. ? Have a great weekend).

  • R Smith

    Under this administration...oh yeah!

  • PhillyFacts

    Facts I remember the “Stamp Man” on 52nd st my mom (drug addict at the time) would pick us up from my gmoms house take us down there cash in them stamps tell the rest of us “don’t ask for ish it ain’t our bday” and get the bday kid some shoes or an outfit for our birthday. ????

    I know. I think it’s 60% 40% split. If you are crack addict 50% split.

  • Faux Gibbler

    They sent undercover people in all the time and build up a repor. Charging documents should have all that info in it.

  • Rhondalousey

    Thats why we need stiffer deportation laws and visa checks.

  • Faux Gibbler

    A lot of them send loads of money home too. In 2018 $46. Billion was sent to from immigrants here to their countries.

  • Rhondalousey

    Report them.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I wish I could get them. Shooot. I’d fill my deep freezer up.

  • JesusSidePeace

    Thats crazy.

  • Rere

    I wish they would’ve sold me some??????????Food is Exxxpensive

  • Idare2bdiffrnt

    I have an idea of how government food assistance should be distributed.

  • Idare2bdiffrnt

    Exactly. No more cards. I actually think that it should be a specific store/location that distributes the food and not grocery stores. The basic necessities and that is it. I can’t believe how entitled people on assitance are. I also agree that they should have to be deug tested. The tax payers that work and dont get assistance are subjected to drug tests to earn their paychecks that are taxed to pay for people to get assistance so the recipients should have to as well.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    What's new? That after 60 years someone finally got caught?

  • Strappyheels

    Exactly

  • Strappyheels

    It’s still illegal

  • Strappyheels

    Nobody said it wasn’t!!

    But when businesses get involved too.. It’s still illegal

  • Strappyheels

    Stipulation is food items, Genius.. Ijs

  • Strappyheels

    What’s funny about that??

    I swear!!

  • Strappyheels

    Shouldn’t have told they slow ass nothing.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    What? I don't know how ELOQUENT any excuse would be. Not my monkies and not my circus...The Government wouldnt give me eye water to cry with let alone feed my poor black azz. No STAMPS NOR ASSISTANCE DO I RECEIVE!

  • hi-liter

    Nobody said it wasn’t what?? Not one time did I say this was legal.

  • Ghost

    And don’t forget the lottery...smh

  • Musiclover

    Can I give you some in sight into that , there is a price bracket a person or persons has to fall under to qualify and the computer system determines what you get. Example One person can only have under 1,100 or less than a month before expenses are payed. Let’s say:
    Your rent is $835 your lights $130, you’re cell phone $100, that’s $1,065 you’re only left with $35 for gas for the month and you don’t have a job, lost it or working on getting one. Now you dont have anything left for the food part. Get it ?
    That’s why you are asked all those questions because the computer calculates what you have in the bank your expenses and sees how much you have to work with before you “qualify”. So it’s not the agent it’s the way the computer system is set up. I don’t work for the welfare office just Gods wisdom, figured it out, and have been there myself.

    In Delaware state employees that worked for the SNAP were indicted a few years back for fraud. They were opening cards in peoples names issuing benefits , I believe they were using some of them , selling some and I don’t what else , maybe exchanging them. All I know it was a few million not 60 million . It involved one agency but it was in more than one county . An employee discovered it that had to look up something in a clients file and the poo hit the fan. An audit was done and folks were fired, fined. and jailed. Then after all that you may need some benefits and you can’t get them if you committed welfare fraud !!
