Man fakes heart attack to dodge bill

AmbulanceSome people will go to great lengths to avoid getting stuck with the check.

A Wisconsin man apparently faked heart attacks.

His scam unfolded last week after he hopped a cab to a mall and then pretended to have a heart attack, the AP reported.

He tried the same ruse a short time later to avoid a $23 bill for an Applebee's steak dinner.

The rescue workers took him to the hospital a doctor recognized him.

Maybe he should have tried a disguise to go along with his fake heart ailment.

The 52-year-old man was charged with defrauding a restaurant as a habitual criminal.

Poor job on the economy. This is going to get worse some people sadly to say can’t cope with the pressers that we are under. I am not saying that breaking the Law is the answer, but with businesses closing=lost jobs, budget cuts =lost jobs, public assistance is being overwhelmed by the over crowding in the major cities =crime.

We have our President B-beget, U-uncaring S-selfless, Head of State and our Governor C-confused, R-redundant, I-in denial, S-self-worth, T-thoughtless.

It is sad when it comes a time in life when you can’t feel safe anywhere whether it’s pumping gas, stopped at a traffic light, having dinner or even at a graduation party and its not just in Miami; it’s becoming an epidemic.
