Queensbury man charged with welfare fraud

Posted:

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. – The Warren County Sheriff's office has charged a 41-year-old Queensbury man with welfare fraud after allegedly reselling medical supplies he received thru Medicaid.

Timothy M. Fuller, 41, of Queensbury was charged with Welfare fraud in the fourth-degree, a felony, after investigating a report from the Warren County Department of Social Services that he failed to accurately report his total household income when he filed re-certifications to receive Medical Assistance benefits.

Authorities say that Fuller obtained diabetic test strips and nicotine patches thru his Medicaid medical assistance benefits, then selling them on E-bay. He then failed to report the income from the sales to DSS when he re-certified for his Medicaid benefits, which constitutes a fraudulent welfare act. The sheriff's office says he received $1,187 in Medicaid benefits he was otherwise not entitled to.

Fuller will appear in Queensbury Town Court later this month to answer the charge.
