"Financial assistance programs are created to alleviate family hardships for those truly in need".

A separate federal criminal complaint charges two other married couples with conspiring to fraudulently obtain Medicaid, Section 8 housing benefits and food assistance benefits.

Investigators said that the accused had plans that, a source told the Asbury Park Press, "rival the most sophisticated of financial frauds". Others will appear in New Jersey Superior Court in Ocean County. "My office will continue to ensure that only individuals and families truly in need of benefits receive them, and that those who choose to steal from New Jersey taxpayers are referred for prosecution".
