Woman Ordered to Repay $40K in Fraudulent Benefits

A woman from Maryland has been ordered to pay back $40,000 she admitted to receiving fraudulently from an insurance company between 1999 to 2005.

48 year-old Melody Ann Silver pleaded guilty December 1 to one count of felony theft. Judge Gordon S. McKee III sentenced Silver to five years probation and ordered her to repay the $40,000.

Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Harris alleged that Silver filed regular long-term disability benefits claims after she was injured while working for User Technology Associates. The filings claimed that Silver was no longer working, even though she continued to work from home and earn a salary of more than $60,000.
