I’m always telling people to be careful of those looking to take advantage of them in business. That’s the reason security footage is important. Chicago is learning that now with the case of Jussie Smollett. But in New Brunswick, NJ, a man decided to fake a fall in a store he was subcontracted to do work in. He took a cup, filled it with ice, tossed it in the floor, walked towards it holding the counter so as to not actually injure himself while faking an injury falling. He stayed on the floor until he was found.

Luckily the entire ordeal, which took place between September 1st and November 1st, 2018 was caught on camera. He was arrested January 15th charged with insurance fraud and theft by deception and He now has court

“Fraudulent claims cost everyone and we will aggressively prosecute those who illegally manipulate the system,” said Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey in a press release. This hilarious video of 57-year-old Alexander Goldinsky doesn’t look good for him and the one count of third degree insurance fraud and one count of third degree theft by deception are very likely are very likely to stick, just like his back on the floor he pretended to throw himself on.

The effects of stunts like Mr. Goldinsky’s are far stretching. There’s approximately $40 billion a year of non-health insurance fraud in the insurance field costing families $400 to $700 more a year in a higher premiums. Hopefully this case will detour anyone else with any similar bright ideas.
