Claim of the Week: Sartorial fraud edition

To sum up, this guy bought 200 silk ties, worth around $15,000. Then he reported the lot of them stolen. Three separate times.

Carlton H. Wopperer was charged with two counts of insurance fraud in Snohomish County Superior Court in July. Last week, he paid restitution of $33,370.67.

If you follow the math, the crook up about $15,000 on the deal, but that’s because the “ties” were first “stolen” 10 years ago, and that money is probably long gone.
