Karissa Coleman thought she was clever enough as an insurance agent to teach herself how to code medical bills for cancer treatment. Ms. Coleman created fake medical bills and fake medical records and then submitted fake claims for payment for out of pocket medical expenses not covered by medical insurance.  As “treatment” for her fakery, Ms Coleman got a real sentence: 10 years of probation and a requirement to perform 100 hours of community service.  Plus, she must pay back over $300,000.  We wonder whether she still has her ill-gotten gains so that she can actually make restitution.  The lesson here is that the more complex a system, the easier it is for bad actors to fly under the radar.  It costs us all.
