Skelton Cline said persons have been requesting the welfare food packages for their household. But after receiving the first delivery, they then have another individual living at the same residence call in with a new request for food.
He said the authorities are “taking notes” of the multiple times that drivers are being sent to the same homes to deliver groceries to individuals living under the same roof.
“The drivers are going to come and they are going to deliver the packages, and they are not going to say anything to you. But we know and we are tracking. So those of you who have done it … we got you. But those of you who are thinking about doing it, we want to put you on guard and to stop it,” Skelton Cline said while speaking on his radio programme this week.
Skelton-Cline further said persons found to be abusing the system would be placed on the ‘red paper alert’.
“We are taking names and numbers and addresses, your location … you cannot get in the way of the needy, and this is the problem with the greedy,” he stated.
We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.
