Reported Abuse

In addition to submitting overpayments involving suspected household fraud, you are also responsible for submitting any incidence of reported abuse on the part of any person or participating food stores.

Other incidences of reported fraud are submitted by memorandum to AFS SNAP.  In the memorandum, you outline the complaint in enough detail to facilitate a follow-up investigation.  Further action is not taken by you or other county office staff pending investigation, and suspected ineligibles continue to participate in SNAP during the investigation.

AFS SNAP staff refers the complaint to OIG for investigation and determination of whether to pursue administrative and/or court action against the household.  In addition, OIG staff, on behalf of the Oklahoma DHS Director, may refer instances of misrepresentation or fraudulent acts on the part of a participating merchant to the USDA.
