Oh, the difficult life of a workers’ comp fraud investigator, having to track down comp recipients who are scamming the system. It’s a tough job that includes visiting places such as … strip clubs?
It’s part of a trend we first told you about last month.
Now, Christina Gamble faces a trial for workers’ comp fraud.
Gamble told management at a Red Robin restaurant that she injured her back after slipping while on the job. She quit. The company’s insurer originally denied Gamble’s comp claim, but a workers’ compensation judge granted her $360/week in benefits.
Now, Gamble is charged with two counts of workers’ comp fraud and one count of theft after an insurance company investigator videotaped her performing as a stripper at C.R. Fanny’s in Wilson, PA.
Gamble is accused of telling her doctor that she was unable to work because standing and changing positions were a problem.
Eight days later, investigators observed her performing at C.R. Fanny’s.
Prosecutors say Gamble collected $26,845 in disability and medical benefits.
Each charge carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
