FAP Trafficking Scheme

An OIG agent uncovered a conspiracy where an individual utilized FAP benefits to supply retail stores with stock. The individual, acting as an intermediary, purchased FAP benefits from recipients at a reduced rate and used the benefits to purchase products which were then sold to convenience stores for    retail sales. Over $100,000 in FAP benefits were misused in the scheme, which resulted in criminal charges and enforcement actions involving multiple suspects.
