    Those cheques were PRINTED AND ISSUED BY THE WELFARE DEPARTMENT…so ANY FRAUD would have had to occur at the WELFARE DEPARTMENT…so it is FRAUD IN THE WELFARE DEPARTMENT and that is why people are asked to contact the Police Fraud Department instead of returning them to the Department where they can disappear without a trace or get lost.
