If he agreed to pay back $1.8M be sure he swindles a whole lot more from American taxpayers. via Hamtramck grocer pleads guilty to food stamp fraud | MLive.com. h/t D

DETROIT, MI – A grocery store owner in Hamtramck has agreed to pay $1,844,690.95 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Agriculture as part of a plea agreement for food stamp fraud.

Syed Ali, the 42-year-old owner of Modhubon Grocery, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States and engaging in monetary transactions in criminally derived property, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade’s office announced Friday.

Prosecutors said Ali and an employee of the grocery store engaged in food stamp fraud from October 2010 through July 2012, receiving redeemed benefits for cash and ineligible items from SNAP recipients at a discounted rate.

In December 2011, Ali cashed a $12,000 check drawn on the food stamp account of the Modhubon Grocery, knowing it was a theft of food stamp benefits, prosecutors said.

A sentencing hearing is set for June 25. Ali faces a maximum penalty of 10 years prison and a $250,000 fine.

Hamtramck has a growing Muslim problem, including voter fraud as Muslims attempt to take over local politics.

  2. sure he will; he will never anything back; will probably get money from the govt under some false pretenses of paying it back; they are so full of crap; they sure don’t mind using anything meant for good to further their terrorism support; they are S C U M

  3. He definitely needs, after paying the 1.8 million, a little time to reflect on his past deeds, say 45 to 50 years at hard labor in a pig processing facility.

  4. Yo some hater !!! Al of you include the person who posted this

We’re all a bunch of haters who have the ignorant idea that FRAUD IS A SIN against humanity–especially against BENEVOLENT American taxpayer HUMANS who actually set up welfare systems to HELP the poor and DISENFRANCHISED–NOT MUZZLUM TERRORISTS!!! Yeah, that’s a $64. word, Arman… I don’t expect you to understand!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
