Man Faked Heart Attack to Avoid Bill? – TIME
(AP / WAUKESHA, Wisconsin) — A 52-year-old Milwaukee-area man has been accused of faking heart attacks to avoid paying restaurant bills and cab fares.

People never cease to amaze me.


  1. Jada Sanders says:

    They’ve been faking seizures for Valium and Ativan for years, so this really doesn’t surprise me! Haha! I think it’s funny that it was published in the papers!

  2. Nurse 1961 says:

    Had a guy a few years ago that arrived in a cab complaining of chest pain. He had all the right symptoms, chest pain, diaphoretic, and ST changes. He was rushed to the cath lab and found to have less than 20% blockage in any artery.

    After a little investigation, he had taken a full bottle of medication, the cab had been from another local hospital (they had paid for it), and he had done this three times before in the local area. They looked at his films from the cath lab and identified him as a patient that had been seen and had a cardiac catheterization for the same large group of doc’s all three times.

    Some people will do anything!

  3. I bet he doesn’t pay his ambulance or hospital bill either.
