'A game of whack a mole'

Whacka-Monty-Mole


Mug00_ferrer17_MHD_HO.embedded.prod_affiliat Miami U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer told the Miami Herald that fighting Medicare fraud was "like a game of whack a mole."

South Florida's Medicare schemers -- popping up left and right -- continue to outsmart the system by cheating the government into handing them hundreds of millions.

This morning the game did not go so well in Miami, where the feds were hoping to arrest Dr. Jorge J. Dieppa, 56, but he was not at home. Rumor is he was away having fun on a cruise.

The feds charged 93 other suspects -- 24 in Miami-Dade County. Miami Herald Staff reporter Jay Weaver has the story.

Ronald White's short-term solution turned into a long-term problem.

White, 35, used fake $20 bills to get himself out of jail, after he was arrested on several counts of shoplifting. But his freedom did not last very long, after he returned to the police station saying he had overpaid for the bail and wanted his money back. 

"One of my favorite sayings is, you can't teach stupid, because every day something else comes up and you just shake your head," Detective Sgt. William K. Covert said. 

Here is the funny story.
