What’s a SNAP Card worth on the Black Market? I went to the grocery store a few hours ago to buy a few items we need as most businesses will be closed tomorrow. As I was walking along the side walk to enter the store, a woman approached me and offered to buy my items on the grocery list if I would give her half the dollar value that was on the SNAP card. I other words, she would buy the items on the grocery list and I would give her half the amount of the receipt in cash. Before I refused, I asked what she needed the money for as I assumed cigarettes or alcohol. It turns out that she gots to have the latest Wii U device from Sony. I wonder how many people on welfare are truely in dire straits and are not just taking advantage of the system. Anyone else on this forum come across something similar?
Not all of the people in “dire straits” are in dire straits. Some are milking the system.
People are creative. They learn how the system works, and then they milk it.
This will not end until the SNAP program ends. It will end in the Great Default.
