This couple, Colin & Andrea Chisholm, are accused of raking in more than $165, 000 in AFDC, Medicaid, Pre-Natal Care & Food Stamp Benefits-all the while living on their $1.2 million, 83-foot yacht docked in South Florida. With waterfront homes in both Minnesota & Florida, $3 million in the bank, and at least two successful business ventures, these self-proclaimed aristocrats still somehow were able to collect government aid from BOTH THE STATE OF MINNESOTA & THE STATE OF FLORIDA!!!
Even after moving from Florida to Minnesota, the benefits from Down south continued to roll in-even though the Chisholm Family were now collecting benefits Up North. This included a $22,000 Medical Bill for the birth of the couple's son in 2007. The $165,000 is only the tab collected from the State Of Minnesota-Florida is still investigating just how much they got took for. On applications for aid, the Chisholm's claimed to be unemployed, with no car or other assets, and living with their mother. smh. All the while, they operated Several business entities & billed medicare for more than $60K for Massage Parlor visits. Wow. If they’re convicted, the couple faces up to 20-years in prison-but the charge also carries the possibility of probation. As of now though the couple remains on the run. No one has seen them in the last six weeks; and authorities believe that they may have left the country. Ironically it was Mr. Chisholm's ex-wife, of 20 years, that that alerted the State of Minnesota of the fraud. Stay tuned for updates to this story.
