At least two have already surrendered to the Manhattan DA’s office, which has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday at 1 p.m. to announce the results of the probe of what it calls a “massive Social Security disability fraud case.” The fraudsters were in cahoots with doctors and lawyers who helped them fake various mental disabilities so they could cash in on fat Social Security pensions totaling tens of thousands of dollars a year.”
