Woman charged for faking blindness

Macerata, October 25 - Police on Thursday reported a woman registered as legally blind and claiming benefits for aggravated insurance fraud in the central Marche town of Macerata. Photos and videos taken of the allegedly disabled woman reading death announcements, getting on and off buses unassisted and checking her watch led to charges against her. Police said that she had received more than 50,000 euros in state support over the last five years. Investigators say they are probing whether other people may have assisted the woman in the scam.
