The Price is Right, But the Contestant is a Fraud, and the Game is Up!

PROTIP: After claiming disability due to an injury on the job, it's best not to go on national television.

Here's what happened when a former postal worker, who was receiving worker's compensation payment after claiming she got injured on the job, got nailed after investigators spotted her on The Price is Right:

Cathy Wrench Cashwell's claim that she couldn't lift mail trays into a truck due to a 2004 on-the-job shoulder injury was called into question in September 2009 when she appeared on "The Price is Right" and spun the "big wheel" twice.

According to an indictment filed in September 2012, Cashwell "raised her left arm above her head and gripped the handle with her left hand." On a second spin,  she "raised both arms above her head and gripped the same handle with both hands."

Federal investigators managed to get more proof of the fraud, when they saw her lifting and carrying furniture and bags of groceries. Cashwell pled guilty in Federal court and is now awaiting sentencing: Link
