Worker’s Comp Scam Gets Discovered After Cathy Wrench Cashwell Goes On The Price Is Right
Ever file for worker’s comp? Here’s some advice, don’t go on “The Price Is Right” and think the feds aren’t watching. Cathy Wrench Cashwell of Fayetteville was a mail carrier from North Carolina. She claimed she was unable to lift mail trays as a result of a 2004 on-the-job injury, therefore she was on worker’s comp. She just pleaded guilty to worker’s comp fraud after Federal investigator proved she was lying because she could spin the big wheel.
The indictment against Cathy Wrench Cashwell of Fayetteville, filed last September, alleges that during her Price Is Right appearance, she spun the “Big Wheel” not once, but twice. Cashwell raised both her arms above her head, grasped the heavy wheel, and spun it with force, the indictment says, demonstrating to the investigators that she lied in her 2011 worker’s comp paperwork about being unable to “stand, sit, kneel, squat, climb, bend, reach or grasp.”
Apparently spinning the big wheel wasn’t her only crime, other evidence was collected including a 2010 Carnival Cruise vacation during which she and her husband were spotted zip lining.
Word of advice, if you plan on committing fraud, try not to do such crazy activities.
I guess the Price was wrong…
