So my friend from high school is a single mom who gets food stamps and her boyfriend has a friend at work that wants to by food stamps off of her. She knows this is illegal but this is how she helps pay bills. This friend wants to but 200 dollars worth for only 100 I think this is such shit he is taking advantage of her and it pisses me off I think she should tell him to kiss her butt but I know she needs it what is your opinion on this please no bashing on her. until you are in her position you have no right to judge thanks

NO FING WAY.  One it is fraud and 2 she is really lowballing the friend not even giving her what the card is worth.   Why cant the mom find a job to help pay bills or something?

She has a job but it doesn't pay enough she has 4 kids so she has to have a job that's flexible. And before any one goes nuts about the 4 kids they are from her ex husband who best the hell out of her and now does not help with kids or child support I feel for her I know I was pissed when she told me but its not my money

Does she realize that fraud can land her in jail and she will lose all the children? Depending which bills are going on, most utilities have low income/emergency deferment.

I have told her ask of that she is stuck on this I guess. I help her as much as possible but can't always do a lot. I just can't believe this ass would do that to her he says its because she gets it for free so he should to but every dollar he takes for free he takes it away from her babies what an ass

I would tell him no.. if I was going to risk going to jail I would at least expect full price

What has this guy done to deserve "free"things?  This woman is trying to support a large family on her own , he should be helping her with things w/ no strings attached.

Maybe point out to her that its not really helping her in the long run because she'll have to spend more on food. Tell her to go to churches and see if they can help with her bills. Food pantry a to make up for what the food stamps don't provide. She can call the utility places and see if she can get set up on the programs where she pays ones price all year or if they have low income programs.

she needs to take that 200 dollars and buy nutritious food for her family.  If her boyfriend is asking her to break the law and sell her food stamps, she needs to ditch this loser fast.

If I were too sell 200 dollars worth of food stamps I wouldn't sell it for any less than 180...probably even higher considering I could go to jail.
