    GregA: You can contact the OIG closest to you or closest to the school she is attending. Even if she receives more federal loans than she would if she filled out the FAFSA accurately, she still has to pay those loans back someday…

    My cousin is bragging about the financial Aid she got by checking the NO box, on the FAFSA, have you ever committed a felony and she is claiming a dependent child that she does not have. Meanwhile, those who are honest cannot get squat. A little help, please. I do not have her SSN but I do have her full name and city where she lives.

    I need some information on fraud and the FAFSA. It seems that a parent has filed out the finace information only using the step parents income even though the mother has legal custody and the child has lived with the parent for 12 months and recieves a large amount of support. She did not use her employment numbers or the support numbers when filling out the childs form. Is this fraud?
