This Guy's Obviously a Psycho

Man Poses as Dead Mom to Collect Benefits |
NBC New York
: "Getting busted for dressing up as your deceased mom so you can collect her checks can be a real drag.

Thomas Parkin was in need of immediate cash flow so he started dressing up as his dead mother in order to collect her Social Security benefits, according to Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes, who announced the arrest this morning. The scam worked so well he did it for six years."

Hat tip to John Hall and Jeff Segal.
