May 9 - Couple Scams More Than $4 Million From Food Stamps And Goes To Prison

A New Jersey couple scammed millions of dollars from the federal government in Food Stamps fraud and now will spend years in prison.

Last week, Ibrahim Zughbi, 67, and Miriam Zughbi, 63, were sentenced for their role in the scam, according to federal prosecutors. Ibrahim previously pleaded guilty to SNAP benefit fraud and money laundering. Miriam pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the U.S.

A judge sentenced Ibrahim to 41 months in prison and Miriam to 24 months behind bars.

Between 2014 and 2018, the duo owned and worked at Jamaica Meat Market, a grocery store in Patterson, New Jersey. The store accepted benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition a*sistance Program. The federal program was previously called Food Stamps.

In the program, clients get a debit card and can use it to buy certain food.

Prosecutors say there was a high volume of SNAP redemption at the Meat Market, and law enforcement investigators confirmed people were exchanging their benefits for cash, which is not allowed. A confidential informant also made 16 purchases where they exchanged SNAP benefits for cash.

It wasn’t the first time Ibrahim had run afoul with the SNAP program. He was the previous owner of a grocery store at the same location and faced administrative charges for SNAP violations, according to prosecutors.

Another owner took over the store, changed the name, and the couple continued to work at the facility. The owner also said Ibrahim would have nothing to do with the store or its operation, according to prosecutors.

But, the couple continued to exchange cash for SNAP benefits even with the change.

To hide the scheme, the couple wrote inflated checks from the market containing the SNAP proceeds to suppliers. They then received the funds back in cash, according to prosecutors.

The couple took more than $4.5 million from federal taxpayers through their fraud.

Yea since they gotta always bring up black people even when there's no black people mentioned at all. Let's do the same to them

Did You Know The Food Stamp Capital in the U.S is a Town That’s 99% White?
When it comes to who uses SNAP Food Stamp benefits the most in the United States, the highest usage is a city that is 99.22% white and 95% Republican comes in the lead. Owsley County, Kentucky.



Owsley County has the distinction of being the poorest county in America,but this fact is conveniently swept under the rug when discussing areas where poverty is prevalent.

Too many hungry people for this bullsh*t. But the problem here is far bigger than hunger. A hustle is a hustle and I'd never knock a mofo. But this kinda sh*t is gunna be over in the post plandemic world.

If they did the same for rich people, they'd get to pick the next president. But since this benefitted the poor they get prison. Shameful.

I know of two grown white guys that was on stamps. One was an alcoholic who drunk a case of beer every night the other was a drug addict that used stamps to buy his dog treats.

A hustle is a hustle and the law is the law. I like to see white people going to prison like mexican or asian people. You do the crime you gotta do the time. They both will most likely die in prison and never see freedom again. Dumbasses

You gotta think though!

Of course it’s going to be more white people on welfare/SNAP it’s way more of them then us....

To see who truthfully uses more government a*sistance you gotta go by what race has the largest percentage of people on government a*sistance

Dude I don't care about that sh*t. I ain't caping for no white people being on welfare more than any other race in America. They can be the #1 race on welfare. I'm cool with that. I like to keep the focus on the old a*s white couple who went to prison for scamming food stamps. That's what this thread is about. Justice was served
