Italian police bust scam, uncover fake mentally ill

San Sebastiano al Vesuvio (Naples), April 3 - Eight people have been reported to prosecutors in connection with an invalidity-pension scam involving fake mental disorders, police said on Wednesday. Organisers of the scam allegedly took advantage of the poverty faced by some residents of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio and Massa di Somma in the Naples province to offer them the possibility of obtaining state illness benefit for pretending to have psychiatric disorders. In exchange, the people behind the scan received payments of the pension arrears. Prospective beneficiaries were wooed during a free lunch offered by a plush restaurant in the area.
