In honor of national Fraud Prevention Month, Florida CFO Jeff Atwater has looked around for the top dimwitted fraud criminals.
Here's his fave:
Joshua Perry, 36, of Fort Myers left a restroom at Rosa Parks Transportation Center and called for an ambulance. Video surveillance shows Perry leaving the restroom with a limp, splashing water out of a fountain and lying down on the floor.
A notice of intent to sue was sent by certified mail last April to Lee County commissioners and the Florida Department of Financial Services. Perry was arrested last May and pleaded guilty to insurance fraud in September. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
The state would like to hear from anyone with insurance fraud tips at 1-800-378-0445.
