I have a relative who has been frauding the system for years claiming her 14 yr old son lives with her for section 8 as well as welfare and food stamps. Her son lives with grandparents 2 hours away and does not benefit by this whatsoever. The grandparents have not turned her in or done anything but try and get her to help out financially here and there (which she has done once or twice in the last 4 years).
I am concerned deeply about turning her in even though I know it is the right thing to do. She is family. I wonder if anyone knows what will happen to her and if she would find out who turned her in. they say it is anonymous but I just cant take their written word on that.
I also wonder if the state would step in and try to take her son from his grandparents? how does that work? right now the grandmother does not work and they live off of disability the grandfather receives from a knee surgery until he goes back to work in next couple of months. would they take him due to their financial status?
thanks in advance for any advice on this!
