Woman Posing as Boston Victim Arrested

Classy. A New York woman apparently used forged hospital records to collect $480,000 from a fund for Boston Marathon bombing victims by pretending she had sustained a brain injury from the explosion. On Friday, Audrea Gause was arrested on charges of larceny with a Massachusetts fugitive warrant. Authorities say they got a tip about the scam and it's possible there are still "one or two other individuals" involved. Earlier this month, a man pleaded not guilty to trying to claim $2.2 million from the fund, which has collected more than $64 million for victims so far.
