Mike’s the Stupid News – Fugitive Tweets ‘Catch Me If You Can,’ U.S. Marshals Comply
Back in January of this year, 60-year-old Wanda Podgurski of California was convicted on 29 felony counts of insurance and disability fraud. All told, she scammed $650,000 filing fake disability claims while working for Amtrak, and used it to travel the world. She was sentenced to 20 years in jail, but when it came time for her hearing she jumped bail and had been on the run ever since; until last month, when the U.S. Marshals caught a big break.
A break Wanda provided herself when she decided to taunt them on Twitter. “Catch me if you can,” she tweeted on June 5th. They were able to trace her tweet to Rosarito, Mexico, where they found and arrested Wanda last week.
