BROOKSVILLE, Fla., Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Police in Florida have charged a woman with welfare fraud for allegedly selling her food stamp card on Facebook.

Ashley Renee McGinley, 23, was charged in August while being held on an unrelated charge. The Hernando County Sheriff's Office said they received complaints from some of McGinley's Facebook friends about her advertising the sale, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel said.

She reportedly offered to sell a $100 EBT card for just $50.

Police interviewed McGinley who admitted to selling the card to a friend named "Kenneth." Police determined that was Kenneth Dunham, who later told police McGinley sold him a $200 EBT card for $100.
