Octomom’s Welfare Investigation Continues

June 10, 2013 01:30 PM by Donna W. Martin

Earlier this year, we learned that Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom was under investigation for possibly defrauding the welfare system. And while we haven’t heard anything new in the case since March, the investigation is still underway. What are the next steps in the case? Take the jump for details.

According to TMZ, fraud investigators are moving forward in their attempts to prove that Octomom did indeed defraud the welfare system. So what’s next? Steps have been taken to seize Octomom’s bank records and other financial documents that may in fact prove she’s been stealing from the system.

Octomom has 14 children who are eligible to receive welfare benefits as long as she doesn’t earn more than $119,000 in a calendar year. So what prompted the investigation in the first place? Investigators were tipped off after Octomom grossed a whopping $200,000 in 2012 from her porn endeavors. And get this; she was milking the welfare system at the same time – well beyond her earnings cap of $119,000.

A warrant obtained by fraud investigators gives them the right to search the home and office of Octomom’s manager, where they hope to find financial records that will blow the lid off the investigation and prove whether fraud was actually committed.

If investigators find that Octomom did indeed defraud the welfare system, she can be prosecuted. And if convicted, she could face some serious jail time – as much as 3 years.

Do you think Octomom defrauded the welfare system? And if so, do you think she should go to jail for it? Or should she just be made to pay the money back to welfare? And what will happen to her children if she goes to jail? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.

    I think they should just make her pay the money she owes plus fines. I think it’s pretty dumb for anyone to be put in jail for this. Jails/prisons are so overcrowded that it makes no sense for her to be incarcerated especially because she’s a single mom and needs to be with her kids. I agree that what she did was wrong, but man if you were a single mom with 14 kids you’d probably do whatever you had to to make sure they have what they need. Give her a break she’s just trying to survive. There are so many more serious crimes that should be dealt with that this crime doesn’t seem so serious.

    How come any welfare is granted if she can make up to $119,000? I have 4 children and make half that, can I sign my kids up for welfare?? This is part of the problem facing our nation. Too few want to take the responsibly for there actions, they have the right to decide but expect the system to back up their decision.

    The fertility doctor who implanted so many embryos in Octomom’s uterus should be made to pay the State of California $119000 a year to compensate the taxpayers for all the welfare she became eligible to receive, until the children graduate from High School. And if he dies before that time, then his estate should be auctioned off to pay for future payments that the California Welfare System is paying Octomom. Didn’t the California Board of Physicians already revoke his license to practice Medicine, because of his gross negligence?

    It is a well known fact she advertises for people to give her free money online. She strips for money. She totally is working the system and should be arrested and the kids taken away where they will be taken care of and not abused.

    Yes!! She should be held responsible for defrauding the welfare dept.Ocotomom should have to pay it all back in full plus interest and do jail time for stealing.Octomom knew she was in the wrong for not reporting her income when she knew that it was the law to do so if collecting from welfare.I am tired of actually getting up everyday and going to work to pay for others to sit on their ass and take for granted the hard working people who also have families to take care of too!! Octomom needs to get a clue, She is not the only single parent in this country who struggles to keep a roof over their children’s head or food on the table, but stealing will get you BAD Karma!! She deserves what is handed to her….

    the girl should have to pay the money back. sending her to jail serves no real purpose. the children need consistent care. she doesn’t deserve a prison vacation. her poor mother has supported her admirably. she should send her poor mom on a restful trip.

    This woman has paid for her mistakes for what she did, I didn’t agree with what she did, but…I don’t have the heart to do evil against anyone, but…I will say that no one will be satisfied until everyone brings this woman down and you’ll all be satisfied, and the kids tramatized and separated because they love their mother, I know now my comment will be overwelmed with negativity, I’m looking forward to see who will disagree with what I said.

    Of course she is as many others in our society. I have always felt those children would be better off without her. The problem is, it would be like a holiday to her-without the children. She needs to pay! She should never been allowed to collect in the first place. The children should be supported by the fertility specialist that was stupid enough to participate in this sick womans plan.

    She could always get a job posing as a Kim Kardashian double to earn money to pay back the government.
