80 Retired New York Police, Firefighters Charged In Disability Fraud Scheme
Eighty retired New York police officers and firefighters were charged on Tuesday in a massive disability scam in which dozens of suspects falsely claimed to have been traumatized by the September 11th attacks to receive benefits they did not earn, authorities said. In all, 106 suspects were charged in a scheme that goes back to the late 1980s, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, whose office led the two-year probe. “The total amount stolen from taxpayers could reach $400 million,” said Vance.
