Wealthy couple with yacht and $3 million in the bank got more than $167,000 in welfare benefits
Authorities said Andrea and Colin Chisholm misled benefit workers for years as they cashed more than $167,000 in welfare checks for food, medical bills, and job training between 2005 and 2012.

They had received benefits from Minnesota agencies while living for two years in Florida, reported the Minnesota Star Tribune, where they also obtained welfare benefits.

2. Seems the wealthy are the most likely to commit welfare fraud. Wonder if there has been a

study done on that.
