I was in a grocery store and she wondered if I would use the card to buy my groceries and give her the cash equivalant back. I told her that it was illegal to do that and she better be careful who she approaches with that deal. She could lose the use of the card for a year or more. Now its not really all that bad considering that she might have needed the money for gas or some other necessity. They stopped handing out money years ago (except for extreme cases) when the system was being abused. But it is illegal and it violates the rules, like millions of Mexicans do in the US everyday. What Would You Do????
