Welfare Fraud question. A person who received an inheritance when her grandmother died, and has failed to report, is still receiving food stamps.

Question Details:

Her inheritance is in an account that is under her mother's name and her mother cuts her checks on a regular basis. She doesn't know that anybody is aware of this and has boasted how her landlord can't touch her for non-payment of rent because she is on welfare. She is being turned in for welfare fraud and will obviously go through some sort of discovery process to hopefully uncover her hidden cash flow. Can this discovery be used by her landlord to recover the months of rent owed during the eviction process? And is this illegal for the mother who has been told that daughter has a legit job?
