Nadya Doud-Suleman, or Octomom's bank records and employment records could be seized by Welfare fraud to further investigate whether or not she is stealing taxpayers' money, TMZ reported Sunday.

The mother of fourteen made headlines after she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009.

Suleman, 37, is entitled to receive welfare support if she made less than $119,000 in a calendar year because she has so many children.

The Los Angeles County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation had been probing recent fraud accusations against Suleman after a source told the department that she was allegedly collecting welfare in 2012, when she grossed more than 200,000 dollars and would not have qualified for benefits, according to TMZ.

According to the warrant granted to the Welfare Fraud officials, investigators are permitted to search her house and her manager's office for her financial records. Her manager is reportedly the person who is holding her records.

Paperwork investigators would look for regarding her finances include bank statements, canceled checks and wire transfer receipts.

The investigation reportedly began in May when legal officials started contacting her former employers to find out how much money she had been earning.

The employers were also apparently asked if they knew any other people who had recently hired Suleman. The employers gave investigators several names of people for them to contact.

Suleman could face 3 years in prison if she is convicted. 

She was criticized by the public and in the press after having eight more children via in vitro fertilization after she was already a struggling mother of six.

The doctor who helped the Suleman give birth to 14 children through repeated in vitro treatments has had his license revoked.
