Bail Bonds and Twitter Mockery – Having confidence in life can be a very good thing for people. However, when a person’s sense of confidence crosses the line and becomes more about “arrogance”, that is when most people get themselves into trouble. Mix that arrogance with some social media and a smart person can quickly become a not so smart person. Just ask the 60 year old San Diego woman who recently was apprehended in Baja, Mexico after fleeing law enforcement in California.
The woman was being charged with insurance fraud totaling over $664,000 in claims. Her story was that she had fallen at home and was unable to work anymore as an Amtrak employee. Prior to her claim of injury, the woman had upped her disability insurance netting her a monthly payout of $40,000 while she was unable to work. Unfortunately for the woman, she was still able to shop, run errands and vacation. All things she shared on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Once police caught on to her fake claim, she decided to flee the country to Baja. In one last thumbing of her nose at the system, she tweeted out, “Catch me if you can.” That is a little bit like poking a hornet’s nest with a stick if you ask us. While a spokesperson for law enforcement wouldn’t confirm the connection of the tweet to the woman’s recent apprehension, it doesn’t take a rocket science to put the pieces together and figure out that taunting law enforcement when you are on the run is not a good idea. Read the original story below.
