I have been That Reporter, who looked into the supposedly-desperately-needed fundraiser and went…waitaminute. I was fifteen minutes away from publishing one “poor X” story when I got a tip that clued me in to something like $40,000 worth of graft. Thank god for that tip. Yes, I feel for the two other news sites that fell for it, but oh well. Medical fraud is popular because medical records are generally speaking highly confidential, but you should at least be able to speak to one doctor or nurse. If the patient won’t give their names, or permission to speak to them, that’s a tell.
