Owner Fraudulently Claimed Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments
HUD reviewed the records of the Housing Authority of the City of Orlando. Specifically, HUD looked at the Section 8 assistance payments made to an owner for a resident with whom he lived. The housing authority discovered potential fraud when the owner brought the death certificate of the resident to the authority to discontinue the housing assistance payments. The resident's last name on the death certificate matched the owner's last name.
