Mohammad, Mohammad and Mohammad Arrested For Fraud
wo Gary, Ind., food marts let people use their food stamps like a normal debit card, giving them cash back and cigarettes in exchange.Wow they sure are setting a bad example for the Prophet.
In return, they illegally redeemed those food stamps to the federal government for more than $500,000, according to two federal indictments filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Hammond.
Now Ola Mohammad, 31, and her brother Abdkdar Mohammad, 29, both of Chicago, face one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government and three counts of wire fraud.
Kaled Mohammad, 27, of Cicero, Ill., faces two counts of wire fraud in a separate but similar case. It was unclear Friday if he is related to Ola and Abdkdar Mohammad.
The money was sent to a bank account that both Ola Mohammad and her father could access, then was wired outside the country.
