Quest Card Fraud (Food Stamp Fraud)
Recently, the State of Wisconsin has changed the State Food Stamp program from physical coupons or checks to re-loadable cards. These cards are called Quest Cards. They are like Debit Cards, and they are reloaded for the recipient monthly.
With the change to the Quest Card, and the political climate questioning whether people who are down on their luck should even get food assistance, has come a flurry of investigations and charges of Quest Card Fraud, or Food Stamp Fraud.
These investigations are initiated by various State of Wisconsin law enforcement agencies. These investigations are criminal in nature and can result in sentences that might include jail.
