Woman Has Been Taking Dead Mother’s Social Security Checks

We’ve all heard of Social Security scams, but this one is a dozy.

A woman who buried her mother in the backyard of her home has been accepting her Social Security checks for the past 14 years.  She now owes the government $141,962.

Apparently, taking the SS benefits weren’t part of her plan.  She had suffered mental anguish after her mother’s passing and her husband leaving her.

Attorney Zenaida Lockard writes, “Facing a home in foreclosure, the loss of her husband, and the death of her mother, Ms. Hodges panicked and made a foolish decision to keep her mother’s benefit.”

What do you think?  Is this excusable behavior?  Comment below.
