Wish that Dan Bowee on Cook rd would get caught. He claims to be disabled and collects a check every month waiting for a settlement and in mean time he hunts, remodels his dumpy home and still hasn't gotten caught. Done this for years. Recieves money under the table to boot by renting out his dock to people for there use.In mean time he's living off the system. Last time I new he had 2 claims going at the same time. One in N.Y.S. and one in another state. Just crazy. He bowls, fish etc. Could go on and on.
can you

I know of that guy. Another thing him and his wife get to go to state parks free because of his supposed disability. That's right they go to Thousand island state camping grounds paid by the state. Last time I knew he was bragging about how he gets free cable cause he usta work for a cable company and knows how to steal the cable from the company. Which he claims he's disable because he fell off a pole working for them. What a crock. That's who he filed his claim against and the other place he filed against and worked at was Home Depot. Don't know which state he filed each claim but your right one was in New York and the other I want to say was Conn. He's a real winner. His bragging will catch up to him.

there are so many people in this town that are collecting disability and workmans comp that are perfectly capable of working. Most of them make more money than you and I which really makes me mad. They go hunting, snowmobiling, and you see them doing stuff under the table all the time. So basically we pay them to sit around smoke pot and drink beer all day while we work hard just trying to make ends meet.They collect off the system and get all their medical bills paid for while most of us cant afford health insurance. The only disability they have is that they are lazy! Hopefully the free loaders get caught.

my father worked his ass off for the carpenters union building concrete bridges for 30 years and had 2 back surgeries to get 5 deteriorated discs replaced with synthetic discs...he still goes hunting and rides his four wheeler and if a repair needs to be made on his house he does it or if the drive way needs to be snow flowed or the laws moved he does it...he was taking to court once and the lawyer said what is he supposed to do let his grass grow 10 feet high or the snow keep piling up?? Sorry to tell you but disability and compensation is not that much...not like he's making any more then he is when he worked actually he makes a little less and he was in the carpenters union so he had the same insurance he does now...Not saying this guy is the same as my father but just because some one hunts or fishes or does work around their house does not mean they are cheating the system...My dad built a deck on the back of the house and a job that should have taking a few days ended up taking over a month because every day he worked on it he'd spend 2 days laid up in bed in so much pain he couldn't even barely get up to go to the bathroom...and each hunting season he goes out less and less because of what it does to his back and legs but he does it because he loves it and gets to spend time with me and his grandsons...I've seen on a hunting show where a boy with muscular dystrofy wish was to go hunting and Make a Wish set it up and he went out in a wheel chair to a blind and they called a deer in and he used a joy stick on the chair to aim the gun then blew into a tube to pull the trigger and shot the deer...I bet none of you would complain about that disabled boy using money donated to Make a Wish to go hunting...

They not only get their monthly checks, but they get other benefits too, like food stamps, heat, medical, and they have the benefit of not having to go to work. They can just be rested and party, drink beer, and smoke cigarettes. That is probably more appealing to them than going to work for a living.Fraud.
For an honest person it isn't worth it. Unfortunately for those dishonest ones, it is very worth it. Being disabled they not only get the monthly disability benefits, they get full medical coverage. The only income showing is the disability so they can also qualify for HEAP, food stamps, rent assistance and other welfare based programs. Then because they actually are able bodied, they can go work under the table and have all that extra cash to spend while the working folks are paying for all of their bills.
It only takes the good folks out there to say nothing for all this to happen.

Well if you feel so strongly that he is cheating the system report him and be done with it. There are a lot of people that receive disability for various reasons. It is not a easy thing to get... So he must have had just cause to get it...
