BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Mailman gets carried away with fraudulent workers comp claim

Mailman gets carried away with fraudulent workers comp claim

A New Jersey mailman has zip lined himself into workers compensation fraud. 

A U.S. Post Service employee in Cape May County has been charged with stealing more than $75,000 in federal workers comp benefits after vacation photos he posted on Facebook allegedly show him zip lining and rock rappelling while purportedly out of work with a wrist injury, Fox 29 reported on Monday.

Robert McGeehan, 59, was charged with second-degree theft by deception and third-degree insurance fraud in an indictment handed up by a grand jury in Trenton, according to the news report.

Between July 2015 and June 2017 McGeehan collected more than $75,000 from the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs and the U.S. Postal Service by falsely claiming an on-the-job fall in 2008 rendered him medically unfit to perform his duties as a letter carrier, according to the indictment, accessed by the Fox News affiliate.
