How long can DSS Fraud investigations investigate me???

Asked almost 2 years ago - 12461

Hi all. I'm receiving Food Stamp and medical benefits. I'm 99% sure I was reported by someone who dislikes me for fraud. Back in November, I received a call from investigations. I have complied, answered all questions, offered up a tour of my residence anytime (They are looking into my household composition, saying my childrens father does live with me, he does NOT) Now a letter has been sent to my landlord. At what point will this end? It looks very bad for me having all sorts of things sent to people from a fraud investigations unit. How can I put an end to this??

Would like to add, I don't receive cash assistance. It's hard asking for any help. I understand some questions. But at what point is this enough?
