Missouri Man Caught on Video Returning Cane to Pharmacy after Disability Exam

A Missouri man claimed to be so disabled that he could not walk without a cane or drive a car. OIG’s Cooperative Disability Investigation program investigators obtained video surveillance of the man returning his cane to a pharmacy minutes after his disability exam, numerous speeding tickets issued to the man, and social network photographs, which contradicted his claims. OCIG imposed a $101,000 CMP against the man, who fraudulently received more than $10,000 in benefits.
