Being married since 1998 and having 2 daughters in 2004 plus my son buying the marital home in 2002, she listed in her application for the house she bought in 2008, to be unmarried, with no dependents, signing to use the new home as her personal habitat and having sole ownership of the marital home which she declared to have it rented for $2,000/month. That way she obtained from HUD, through Bank of America a loan for $184,000 with only a salary of $34,000/year.
For the IRS she declared to be Head of Household, while still legally married to my son, to be a Teacher, when she is only Staff Assistant at Chicago Pubic School System, to be living in the house recently acquired and having no other support or income, obtained other discounts not entitled while they were filing joint returns from 1998 till 2007. I sent this information in August or October 2012.
For the School lunch program she filed false statements regarding her financial status, lack of additional income and listing dependents as living with her and assisting them in their needs.
Thank you very much for your encouraging words, and specially for the information provided to the best approach to the IRS, HUD and the Chicago Public School system. One more question: I heard there are whistle blower attorneys. Is that a good way to proceed or they are more interested in big cases of massive fraud and do not take single cases like mine?
That's all. Thank you. Good bye. I'll follow with the links you provided. If something else comes up, I will call you..
