Some people think they can get away with fraud. Especially when the government has technology that is outdated and unreliable.
This is what Tonia Ramaza-Williams was probably thinking when she attempted to falsify her job records to get extra governmental assistance, worth more than $82,000.
The 40-year old Willingboro resident hatched the scheme when she discovered after applying for welfare benefits that she was earning too much as a state worker, and decided to falsify her employment earnings so she could qualify for the various welfare programs offered.
She used her job as a head clerk at the state Children and Families Department office to change her records.
However the scam was uncovered and now the former state worker is heading off to prison to serve out a 3-year sentence moreover the Willingboro resident must pay back full restitution.
What are your thoughts on this?
