NOT A HAPPY ENDING
If you’re going to collect disability, it’s probably best not to take on work as a masseur. A man, 53, in Torrance, California learned the hard way when an investigation revealed that he was gainfully employed as a massage therapist, despite receiving benefits for a debilitating shoulder injury. The man was supposedly injured while employed by the U.S. Postal Service, but failed to report his improvement of condition (or new career path) to the U.S. Department of Labor, the entity that handles workers’ compensation for the U.S. Postal Service. The man faces one felony count of insurance fraud. Not to mention a royal pain in the neck.
