PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Fraud Prevention is a program that was developed to resolve issues in cases that meet criteria of potential fraud. Resolving these discrepancies maintains program integrity and results in a savings to the taxpayers in program costs and ensures that funds are available to those who really need assistance. Roseau County usually receives allegations of welfare fraud either from case workers who regularly work with recipients of public assistance or from the general public. If the investigation finds the violation was intentional, the case is referred for administrative process or for criminal prosecution.
