An NYPD officer and his wife are accused of stealing his dead mother’s identity and using it in order to collect over $88,000 in social security and pension benefits. In addition to the benefits scheme, the couple is accused of using his mothers identity to illegally sell her home for $260,000 and trying to collect an additional $160,000 in insurance annuities.
After his poor mother passed away in 2016, a death certificate with the wrong social security number was created and the couple never corrected the mistake. Instead, they continued to maintain her finances as if she was still alive. I hope she haunts them every night in jail and pulls their toes!
