NEW YORK - A 49-year-old man has been charged with dressing up as his dead mother as part of a creepy scam to collect government benefits. Thomas Parkin was to appear in court in Brooklyn on Thursday to face grand larceny, criminal impersonation and other charges. The name of his lawyer was not immediately available.

Prosecutors allege that Parkin concealed the 2003 death of his mother, Irene Prusik, by giving false information for her death certificate. They say for six years, he collected tens of thousands of dollars in Social Security and housing benefits using her identity.



How do you conceal the death of your mother for 6 years? Didn't she have any friends that asked questions? Relatives etc.

Not to mention...how could you mistake a 49 year old man for an old woman?
I would think that a 49 year old man in a dress and wig would still look like a 49 year old man in a dress and wig.

Anyone remember that old Hitchcock film "Psycho"?

You know I can see wanting to continue the money to flow in but to pretend to be your own mother seems a bit extreme.
