Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
I don’t know if Mr. Twain was just writing dialogue or making an actual statement, but it seems some people, well–a hell of a lot of people think along those lines.
This past week I was watching a television program, Tiny Houses, where these people had decided to downsize where they lived. I mean going from a 3000 square feet home to a 500 square feet home. They had to get rid of all this stuff they had accumulated over the years. I thought about all we do to make money to purchase things we do not need. All the hours of laboring to purchase things just to have things. We are suckers for the advertisement companies persuasion that we have to have this ,or that we need that. And for many, they get caught up in this mind-set that leads them to not only believe, but act out Mr. Twain statement.
Today’s CrimeDiva, Dr. Paula Williamson, 69, of Michigan, is an example of what we will do for money. I don’t know Dr. Williamson circumstances, but after being in the medical practice all those years, one would think she had all that she needed.
According to the Justice Department, Dr. Williamson took part in a scheme that defrauded the Medicare Program out of $2.1 million. The records indicated that between 2009 and 2012 she committed health care fraud by referring Medicare clients for home health care services that were medically unnecessary and never provided. Also, Dr. Williamson falsified documents that were used to support the fraudulent claims to Medicare.
Dr. Williamson was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. . . . . As the late Bob Hope once said, “Money is paper blood.”
