Alameda Pair Admits to $180,000 Fraud

A married Alameda couple has taken a plea deal after receiving fraudulent food stamps and subsidized child care payments for nine years, the Oakland Tribune reports.

An Alameda couple has admitted to defrauding the state and Alameda County over a period of nine years, according to an article in this morning's Oakland Tribune.

Khadijah and Malik Ali received more than $180,000 in food stamps and subsidized child care payments by concealing their marriage, place of residence and Malik's job with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, the article says.

The Tribune reports that the couple has accepted a plea deal.

I hope the plea includes them paying us all back!

Maybe they should be deported.

According to this article she will pay back part of it or go to jail. http://www.insidebayarea.com/news/ci_21445823/alameda-couple-caught-stealing-from-government

So, even though the article says nothing about where these two were born, we're just going to assume they're foreign because their names are not Betty and Dan Jones? This is called "Racism." Please re-think. A thief is a thief, but we don't have to lose our minds entirely.

@Hugo "Deported"? To where? I didn't see anything in the article saying that they were illegal immigrants or even stating that they were not US citizens! Perhaps I missed that? I'll have to read it again!

and where would you deport them to? they are both citizens. Be careful here as names do not necessarily signify someone is an alien.
