  • The dumbest insurance fraud cases of all time
  • March 19, 2014
  • #6: Tramesha Lashon Fox was a Houston high school chemistry teacher who was sick and tired of her monthly car payments. Instead of dealing with the responsibility, Fox gave two failing students passing grades to steal and torch her Chevy Malibu so she could receive car insurance money.

    But instead of doing away with her car payments, the school did away with Fox’s job. She also landed in jail for 90 days.

    #5: Robert and Teresa Hammond, and Margaret Dillavou and Paul Gaines, two couples from Union County, Ill., crashed the Hammonds’ car into a tree and videotaped the entire event. They needed money to pay Dillavou for rent, and decided to use scammed car insurance money.

    However, Dillavou lost the tape. It was later found by her estranged husband during their divorce, who then gave it to the police.

    #4: Candice Lambert was a seemingly sweet and inspirational special-education teacher in Albany, N.Y. who was diagnosed with terminal cancer… or so everyone thought.

    The teacher actually faked having the disease, garnering sympathy and even going as far as shaving her head and retiring to New Hampshire to live her “final months” on disability insurance from the school system.

    Former colleagues caught wind of a Nashua, N.H. newspaper article about Lambert’s brave fight against an inoperable kidney tumor. It turns out Lambert was not on her deathbed at all; instead she collected disability insurance benefits while taking her act to another unsuspecting school.

    Lambert received one to three years in prison for trying to steal more than $110,000 in health insurance and disability insurance benefits.

    In the Internet world there are some or basically a very few
    types of proper movie sites. It’s easy to watch movies online and catch up with your favourite
    movie stars. Money for the movie itself and for the beverage when you
    are watching the movie.
