Disability Benefits Fraud

The Manhattan district attorney’s office has charged 106 people with disability benefits fraud in relation to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Former police officers who had told government doctors they were too mentally scarred to leave home had posted photographs of themselves fishing, riding motorcycles, driving water scooters, flying helicopters and playing basketball.
