I actually got to know a PI who specialized in Workman's Compensation Fraud. That's all he does and he contracts with two States. I don't know if
the problems are the same in Canada or not?
He had found that nearly 75% of Workers Comp claims were fraud. He had no shortage of business and was doing really well. People look at stealing
money in this way as not stealing, even though it of course. He showed me his equipment, which was primarily camera gear and he had I'm guessing
lenses that were in the $30,000 range after pricing them. He simply parked a quarter of a mile away and waited until they were in their yard doing
physical labor they were not supposed to be able to do.
I approved completely of what he was doing. These fakers and liars are responsible for driving the costs through the roof here for employers. I don't
know if it's the same in Canada or if the State covers these costs?
