The Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud reports that it has charged an Orlando man with workers compensation fraud and grand theft after an investigation claimed he fraudulently collected more than $115,000 in benefits.
“It is one of my missions as your CFO to root out fraud of all types,” CFO Atwater commented in a statement. “Those who are looking to game the system are ultimately putting the financial burden on all of Florida’s consumers. If you bilk the system, we will find you and put you behind bars.”
Atwater’s office reports that Jackson had claimed to have injured his back and foot while taking part in defense tactics training as an Orange County corrections officer.
