    Answered . I'm not aware of a reward simply for reporting food stamp fraud, but one potential route would be to file a False Claims Act case against the convenience store. There are attorneys who specialize in the False Claims Act; you could try contacting one in your area and seeing if they will take your case. Most work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if they win, so it may be worth your time to make some calls. You cannot file a False Claims Act case without an attorney; it will be dismissed if you try to bring it yourself.
