WLOX is being flooded with phone calls from people who say their food stamps are being declined at various stores across South Mississippi. After making some phone calls we were able to confirm EBT cards are not being accepted, however, we are still trying to determine the cause.
Alice Douglas who is the store manager at Jerry Lee’s in Gautier said the transactions are not going through anywhere in the state. She said customers are being declined at Jerry Lee’s, Wayne Lee’s, all dollar stores, convenience stores, and Rouse’s.
The Electronic Benefit Transfer system has malfunctioned statewide Saturday morning. According to our crews, a local retail store announced over the intercom that the EBT card system was malfunctioning. (They later got it working again and said it was the fault of the retailer’s system whichI find suspicious considering the other reportsand personal experience. I think they are lying or just misinformed)
Reports are coming in across the state of Ohio Saturday that food stamp machines are not working. News Channel 5 has received several phone calls from Ohio Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card users who said their food stamp cards are not working at grocery stores. When they attempt to make a transaction, an error appears stating the transaction was not approved.
I can also personally confirm this. I live in Massaachusetts and EBT is also being denied here. I have a 9 month old baby and my family relies on that money for groceries every month because like most everyone else, I live paycheck to paycheck. You can bet alot of people are going to be pissed off over this. The only people this hurts is poor people and it will only harden the opinion that government sucks. Not just Obama, not just the parties but government, period. We are still just serfs in the system. As far as I know this just happened today too. We recieved our EBT money on the 8th, used it that day and it was ok then, 4 days ago but today is being denied. They had the money to bomb and possibly invade Syria weeks ago but now cant afford food stamps for the poor? I think i speak for all those affected when i say to the government a big F*CK YOU! -Mort
According to the Michigan Department of Human Services spokesperson, the issue comes from a system update on the retailers end of the system and not the Department of Human Services.
Issues are being reported in states all over the country, including, Ohio, Mississippi, Maine and Georgia.
The issue is wide spread, the problem should be corrected today. (We shall see… )
