STRANGER THAN FICTION
What do you get when you defraud six different insurance companies by creating fake injuries for fake employees who work for imaginary employers? The answer is nearly half a million dollars in restitution, plus 12 years in the federal penitentiary. An investigation by the U.S. Secret Service found that a man in Knoxville, Tennessee had impersonated the owners of six fake businesses in order to obtain workers’ compensation insurance. He then filed false injury claims on behalf of the fictitious employees. His fairy tale lasted from January 2014, when he was busted by U.S. Marshals at a doctor’s office impersonating one of the fictitious employees of one of his fictitious companies.
