The complainant attempted to use her EBT card at Harris Teeter but the card was declined. Upon contacting the Loudoun Department of Family Services, the complainant learned that the entire balance of the card, $3715.00 was spent in one transaction at a location in Brooklyn, NY. Staff at DFS reported that this type of fraud had been reported across the country. As the thefts are related to interstate commerce, a copy of the investigation was sent to the FBI for follow-up.
