One of our managers talked to you on the phone earlier today about suspected food stamp fraud happening in our store and you suggested that we write a letter and explain the situation.
We notice that every first or second week of the month, certain customers come into our store and purchase products that we know are definitely not for their everyday use. For example, the customer will come in and buy $100 - $150 worth of rice or fish sauce only, in the amount that reaches their food stamp limit. Later, on that same day, that customer will return to make cash purchases for items that do not qualify for food stamps, like alcohol and cigarettes.
We also notice other suspicious activities happening in front of our store. We called the police department a few times but when the police arrive, those people disappear.
We are totally against food stamp fraud and we’re trying to do everything to prevent it from happening in our store. Please advise us what we need to do if the situation continues on our premises.
