Authorities to Seize Financial Docs

in Welfare Fraud Probe

6/9/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Welfare fraud investigators have taken steps to seize Octomom's bank records and other documents that may prove she's been stealing taxpayers' money ... and what they find could land her in prison.

Welfare fraud officials obtained a search warrant to seize Octo's financial and employment records -- because they smell a rat.

We broke the story ... the L.A. County Dept. of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation (WFP&I), has been investigating Nadya Suleman after getting a tip that she was collecting welfare in 2012  ... when she grossed more than $200,000.

According to the warrant -- obtained by TMZ -- investigators have targeted 2 locations -- the home and office of Octo's manager, the person who presumably has financial records showing what's up.

As we previously reported, Octo and her 14 kids are entitled to get welfare benefits if she earns less than $119,000 in a calendar year.  But there's evidence she made a lot more and still grabbed public assistance money.

If the hunch is right, Octo can be prosecuted for welfare fraud, and if she's convicted she could face 3 years in prison.

And yet all the bitches in Oakland STILL come away unscathed and not investigated for welfare fraud. Generations and generations of welfare fraud. Unreal.

Why weren't the octuplets taken away from her in the first place? They would have made eight childless couples happy.

The octowhore is a piece of human filth. The whore purposely got knocked up with 8 kids so she could get attention & go on the dole. F*CK HER; she's nothing but a leech on society. I hope they prosecute & convict her, and her kids go to homes where they're actually taken care of (unlike hers)...

I only feel sorry for the kids, you know they are messed up. This idiot thought she was going to be the next Angelina Jolie for some reason, spending all that money to try and look like her. They should lock her up AND the idiot doctor who did the IVF, there was no reason on earth to do the procedure when she already had a bunch of kids she couldn't care for.

Why is the trash allowed to get welfare? Why should we have to pay for her kids? We didn't ask the idiot to have 14 kids... if you can't afford to have kids don't HAVE THEM!!!
