Octomom Fraud Allegations Claim She’s Scamming Welfare

March 20, 2013 08:59 AM by Lisa Princ

What do porn and welfare have in common? Why, Octomom, Nadya Suleman, of course! The famous mom of fourteen has been flip flopping from porn gigs to welfare these days, and now it looks as though it could cost her – not money though…more like jail time! That’s right, it’s Octo drama in full force as Suleman is now being accused of welfare fraud.

You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do for your kids, right? But at what price? Oh yeah, this is Octomom we are talking about – I almost forgot for a minute. Being such a class act, why wouldn’t she scam the welfare system – tons of normal people do it all the time, right? Well, for Octomom, some new fraud allegations could cost her some valuable time with her brood.

According to TMZ, a complaint was filed against Octomom, accusing her of welfare fraud – shocker, we know. With 14 kids, one would expect her to be on welfare, so where is the problem? The problem is that in California, she can collect welfare, as long as she does not make more than $119,000.00 per year. With all of her stripping gigs and porn work, the complaint indicates that Octomom made well over that amount, which means she is committing welfare fraud – in layman’s terms, scamming the system.

Sources told TMZ that the Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation is currently investigating the claims against Octomom. If they find that she did commit fraud, she could face up to three years in prison. Something tells us that Octo may be headed to prison in the near future.

What do you think of Octomom commiting welfare fraud? Should she go to prison? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments section and tell us all about it.

    Why is the American Tax Payer stuck with this womens inabilaty to function normal work, hold any job, do the right thing? In other words if she takes anything from Welfare (which she said she would not do) she should at the very least be required to do something! other than have some Half Wit Dr get her pregnant. She should be required to volenteer work SOMEWHERE! Her legs are not just painted on!

    $119,000 and you can still collect welfare? No wonder California will go broke long before the big earthquake envelops the entire state. Jeez, no wonder people clamor to live there.

    So you can make $118,000 per year and STILL be on welfare???

    I’m just stunned you can make almost $120K and still get welfare. I don’t care how many kids you have.

    “The problem is that in California, she can collect welfare, as long as she does not make more than $119,000.00 per year. ”

    That is a disgrace! $119,000 in north carolina is considered very well off!

    She should just tell everyone she is an illegal and then she will get everything free even Social Security for all the kid’s that would be about 30 grand a month, free rent lot’s of food stamps and a pallet full of rubbers.

    Why arrest her and put her in jail? Fine her and make her pay the money back to the State. If she spends time in jail the State will have to care for her children costing tax payers even more money.

  15. Chris Says:

    Just get a real job and keep it.

  16. Ray Workman Says:

    Why doesn’t the state of California just take the 14 children away from her, and find new homes for these kids, and the lazy mom can be forced to find a real job?

    I believe that if she is committing a crime yes she should pay for it. jsut because she has kids does not make it right. I have children as well and if I were to commit a crime I would be punished, why should she be above the law??

    Please send her, the idiot ‘sperm donor’, and the sociopathic ‘doctor’ who caused this whole nightmare to jail. FOREVER. And put those poor kids in a home that’s able to raise them properly.

    can’t believe that someone can make that much money in california and still be eligible for welfare! i think that the people who approved that law should be going to jail along with suleman. no wonder california is bankrupt!

  25. Dee Says:

    As a taxpayer in that state, of COURSE she is committing fraud! She has a Master’s degree, yet claims she “cannot work.” She also claims she had the kids because she wants to be around them all the time – and yet the STATE is taking care of the kids while she goes on talk shows! Her parents got her a house to live in but kept the title out of her name so she can continue to STEAL from hardworking taxpayers like me. I can’t afford to even have one child – yet I am FORCED to pay for her snot-nosed brats that she spews forth with the rapidity of a maggot breeding in manure. It’s outrageous and I demand not only jail time for this scam artist but also that the state take any of her assets, and put lien on anything she may earn in the future so that she is forced to repay all that she has stolen… with interest!

    Will Octomom just go away already? She already had her 15 minutes, so why is she trying to get 15 more?

    Whats the big deal. Every day in this country the goverment throws it out to nonn american. ilegal imagrints and the like. Who by the way convert it into cassh for drugs and booze. porn jewelry gas for their hummers. All this is done on the hard working americns backs. This country needs welfare reform badly. stop sending my tax dollars overseas too.. America needs an overhaul. term limits, no adding bills to others being voted on. end pork barrel spending and invest in america.

    Poor woman…. some commit murder and are glamourized. She is just doing the best she can, with her abilities. to feed her kids. Ask her to pay it back if she abused the system but please don’t send her to prison. She deserves a break too. If she looked like Jodi Arias or Casey Anthony she would have so many Hollywood deals by now and be making millions.

  30. David Housings Says:

    While I’m not a fan of hers, folks, do the math. Even if she did get $200,000 last year, there are 15 …. count them, 15 …. people in that household, most of them children, and children are costly. Count groceries, rent, clothing, utilities, educational expenses, taxes, to name a few, and $200,000, as much as it is to us “normal earning” folk, does not end up being all that much. (Oh, yeah, before you yelp, I could use $200,000 gladly, but, then, I don’t live in a household of 15.)

    This was the woman who always spoke of food stamps as if it was the most shameful program on the planet. I’m sure after this, there will be some sort of publicity stunt where she will get the opportunity to cop out of what she meant during the original statement. Like she did with the porn deal and the F list celebrity appearances with Amy Fisher. I feel immensely sorry for her parents and her fourteen children. Instead of prison, Nadya should be locked down in a mental institution for a few months to attempt to pick up the shattered pieces of her frail psyche. Then put her in prison. Nadya is a wretched human being who cares for no one but her image in articles. I CANNOT believe she continues to get publicity.

    Investigators are worried about her??..They should be spending more time on the illegal aliens scamming the system and filing tax returns claiming dependents that do not reside in this country

    i think that they should take these kids because you know they are not getting the money everytime you see a picture of them they look like their homeless or something she thought that this would make her famous make her pay it back and go to jail where i live i make a whole lot less than her and i cant get welfare but i survive geez

    It depends on how many people you have living in your house, my mom didn’t even make $1,800 last year and can barely get $200 in food stamps because there is only one minor (me) and my sick sister (who is 20 but can’t work) and her (who now has a part time job) she also doesn’t get any cash aid because she didn’t qualify. Usually if you’re able bodied welfare sends you to a work program, so you’re getting money but you have to work for it. One of my mom’s friends however, doesn’t work, lies about working to collect income tax, has never worked a day in her life and some how gets food stamps and cash aid and section 8 (they pay your rent.) I don’t understand it, people who need it can’t get it and people who do shit like this and really don’t need to make it impossible to get it.

    Can we assume that the cut off of $119,000 is specific to her because she has 14 children. If that’s the limit for everyone, no wonder California is broke. Leave her be and as someone else says, take care of her after Lohan and others breaking the bank of local government with all their court appearances (and never ending “getting off the hook” for some reason).

  39. nascarella1 Says:
    March 20th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    why put her in jail, if she was an illegal they would give her anything for free,but since she is legal that makes a difference.she is trying to raise her kids,leave her alone.

  40. Arcticmoon71 Says:

    Much of the money that Nadya earns goes to herself. Remember the hairdresser that charged Nadya $500.00 per haircut. I am sure that Nadya has had a ton of plastic surgery too. You don’t go through a pregnancy carrying 8 babies and not have battle scars. She is clearly very self indulgent and I believe she would have to pay back the Government with interest.

    She should have kept the fetuses then the GOP would have helped her as you know once the fetus is born it becomes a problem for taxpayers who hate birth control.

  42. karen Says:
    March 20th, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    She was one who wanted 14 kids. if your going have 14 kids then pay for them YOURSELF !!She should have to pay all back . Also do jail time. California is a poor state . I’m glad she got caught.

  43. Margaret Harris Says:
    March 20th, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    She should be sterlized and definitely shouldn’t be collecting welfare. She should have thought about this before she had all those children. Most of us figure out how many children we can afford and just have 1 or 2 based on our income. What values is this teaching her children?
